Christine and John were both very helpful, kept us very well informed on the process and gave us really good advice on getting the property ready for sale. They achieved a sale in 5 weeks when we had been on the market for 3 years with other companies. So we are very happy and would highly recommend them to anybody.

Deborah Everett and James Stimpson

Wonderful lady, excellent communicator, and always upbeat and confident.

Tony Hodge and Donnapha Jandadan

Christine has been great to deal with and quick to respond to questions/queries.

Christine’s personable approach with the purchasers together with her deep knowledge of the Mangawhai market have seen her sell many millions of dollars worth of land for Sanctuary North Ltd. Christine has the knack of working in the vendors best interests while befriending the purchasers, who have great faith in her advice. I unconditionally recommend Christine based on her achievements for me to date.

Nothing is too much trouble and she always goes the extra mile.

Methods of sale

There are several methods of selling property in New Zealand. It is important that you understand the process for the property you are selling.

Auctions are a public process where a property is sold to the highest bidder at a level pre-determined by you, the seller.

  • Auctions are the most transparent sales process, putting all qualified purchasers together in one room, increasing competition to aid determination of fair market value
  • A sale under the auction hammer is cash unconditional, providing sellers with certainty to plan their next move
  • The deadline timeframe of the auction process creates urgency and a window for buyers to complete due diligence

Usually set over a specific four-or-five week timeframe, the tender process leverages the timeframe element to invite buyers to submit a formal offer. After this, you can negotiate the terms of the sale with your preferred purchaser.

Expressions of interest invite all offers from interested parties, allowing flexibility and the option to choose who you want to negotiate with.

Properties offered for sale by negotiation leave value to be determined by the market. This is where the advice and experience of your qualified Bayleys salesperson can assist in determining where you see value for the property and are comfortable accepting an offer. Sales by negotiation are generally open-ended, with the absence of time pressure on both buyers and sellers.
