Multiple Offer Situation.
Buying a Property
Your purchase of a home will probably be the largest single investment of your life. To protect that investment, it is important that you work with knowledgeable professionals at each stage of the buying process.
As you shop for your property, it is important for you to liaise with all of the professionals who will have a role in the transaction, not just your agent, but your lender, solicitor and valuer if necessary. We can direct you to the very best in these areas, so you make the right decisions at the end of the day.
Tired of looking for your dream home?
Let a Buyers Consultant do the hard work for you.
What a Buyers Consultant can do for you:
Make Your Wish List
Focus on the features you want in a home: 2 bedrooms or 3? 1 bath or 2? Garage or no garage? Knowing what you are looking for will help you focus your search. And it will help your real estate agent too
Now you can really begin house-hunting. Your real estate agent will be able to find listings for you, based on your wish list.
Selling your Property
We can help you select the best marketing options for your home.
Whether it’s how to sell, which days to place your advertising, or how best to present your home for viewing, our sales consultants can provide you with the right advice.
How you sell your property is a big decision and requires careful consideration.
There are four basic methods:
Auction is one of the oldest methods of marketing, dating back to Roman times, with potential buyers bidding against each other for your property. A well-run auction programme may mean more time and effort from your consultant, but will ensure that your property gets maximum exposure. Selling by auction is a real opportunity for you to get more for your home than you expect.
The auction marketing campaign that you choose will be tailored to deliver maximum exposure within the first few weeks on the market – the time your property is most likely to sell.
You set a deadline for the sale of your home.This creates a sense of urgency among buyers and sales consultants. It also allows you to plan ahead, knowing a definite date has been set for the sale of your home.
Other benefits of selling by auction:
When you offer your property for sale by tender, everyone with an interest to purchase must seal their offer (tender) in an envelope and deposit it with us by a predetermined date and time. All tenders are opened together and you choose the one most favourable to you.
Tender is another opportunity for you to create a competitive situation without stating a price. You set the terms, conditions and the deadline, and prospective buyers have only one opportunity to put forward their most competitive bid.
Because tender is another method of marketing without a price, it increases the number of enquiries and inspections, as well as the opportunity to obtain the very best price for your property.
When you list exclusively, you put your trust in one organisation, which takes on sole responsibility for the sale of your home. At Harcourts Queenstown, we make sure we earn your trust before we ask you to list exclusively with us. And we make sure that we fulfil our responsibilities.
When you entrust Harcourts Queenstown with the sale of your home, you approve a personal marketing plan, which will provide promotional services designed to get your property noticed by the right people.
This involves several sales consultants from different companies all trying to sell your home. It might sound good, but the reality is that your property becomes everyone’s listing and no-one’s responsibility.
General listing can work – sometimes. Many people who choose this method experience a lot of frustration and disappointment, which Harcourts Queenstown wants to help you avoid.
