How Do I Find out What My House Is Worth?

There are two proven methods to getting a home value estimate: a home appraisal and a valuation.

Home appraisals are conducted by real estate agents and provides an educated estimated value of your home, based on the experience of the real estate agent and current market trends. A home appraisal is typically done for free.

Registered valuations are conducted by a licensed and registered valuer where they perform a similar assessment, but they are done by an independent and qualified valuer for a typical price range of $500 to $800.

What Do I Need to Do Before I Can Put My House on the Market?

Before you put your house on the market, there are several important documents and disclosures you need to provide.

The first is an agency agreement; This document is provided by your real estate agent and it contains the key details of the parties involved in the sale of your property: you, the agent and your lawyer. Until you sign this, your agent cannot act on your behalf to sell your home.

Regardless of what kind of home sale method you choose (e.g. auction, fixed), you should also disclose information to your agent when you put your home up for sale such as certificates for any building work, building consents and code of compliance.

What Are the Different Ways I Can Sell My House?

You may have noticed that houses are frequently sold in different ways, depending on market conditions and the unique aspects of the property.

Marketing your property with a price is the traditional approach to selling real estate and lends itself to negotiations. Often, however, you have less chance of selling for a premium since the given price acts as a 'ceiling', and buyers will therefore attempt to negotiate down, not up.

Selling without a price can be conducted by auction, tender, or by simply advertising without stating a price. Auctions are fast, simple, and place a deadline on the buyer to make a decision. Auctions, by their very nature, are a dynamic and positive way of arranging a quick and uncomplicated transfer of your property for the best price.

A real estate tender is a method of selling a property through the process of private and confidential offers made by a set deadline. A tender works particularly well when either the seller needs to consult with a number of people, when buyers may need to undertake considerable due diligence before finalising the sale, or when one party may have considerably more interest in buying the property than the general market.
