Understanding the different sale methods

A variety of sales methods are used to sell property in New Zealand but the most common are by auction, tender or private treaty.

For more information on these visit our Methods of Sale for investors section.

You do not have to be in New Zealand to purchase a property. Provided you are registered, you can bid by telephone for a property that is being auctioned and we will assist you to do this. Offers by other methods of sale can be made electronically.
