Common in the United Kingdom and the U.S.A. we are introducing a Buyer Agency to New Zealand because the Auckland Housing Market has become so daunting to buy into.
Like it starts now at half a million dollars and you need to know what you’re doing, what to buy, where to buy and how to negotiate.
We’ve spent a small fortune analysing the Auckland Housing Market and our first free presentation on it has been oversubscribed in one day.
You’ll get an understanding of what we’re doing by clicking on “CSI”….City Sales Investment on this website front page.
Basically we’re saying if you want your kids to be able to live in Auckland in their own home don’t persuade them to save for it – they’ve got no chance.
You’re going to have to help and you need to act.
And you should engage us to act for you for a modest fee.
Or you just won’t do anything because it’s so hard.
But it’s not hard for us.
We have 13 “preferred” agents across Auckland in Barfoot & Thompson, Harcourts and Ray White and we have our own in-house team “harvesting” the right properties from websites.
Funnily enough our first clients were owner-occupiers, exhausted at visiting open house after open house, getting no help from the agents and terrified at bidding at auction. Looking for a year and with $1million in their pockets.
We missed out at three auctions where we were overbid but secured a superb home- WHICH THEY HAD LOOKED AT ..but discounted initially.
I think they now have stolen it.
Another client is a CFO of a big financial lender who tried to invest six years ago but gave up because he hated visiting open homes and having to deal with agents.
He’d be $300,000 better off if we’d met six years ago.
Humility is not natural to top salespeople.
We all get a bit excited at how clever we are.
But these new experiences have reaffirmed in me the fact that buying a property is really daunting and if you don’t have a sense of humility you’ll never see what your neighbour is going through.
Get in touch if you have the capacity to borrow and set your kids (or yourself) up.
Can’t say it seriously enough but you need to act.
And we’ll give you the macro view for free – then you can decide to do it yourself or employ us.
If you decide to do it yourself I bet you won’t.
And each year you’re $50,000 minimum worse off on past figures AFTER tax and I believe this will exacerbate.
Do call us.
Cheers for a beautiful Spring.
