A number of my clients have called me to ask what they should do next given what's happened in our local real estate market.

𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀 👇

- Pre-approvals are at an all-time high
- Lowest interest rates, ever
- Increased buyer enquiry on properties
- Significantly less stock on the market

And the Auckland market has remained stable with a median price of $910,000 a 7.1% increase year-on-year 🙂

While we continue to run strong auction campaigns with an average of 25 days on the market, we have seen the rest of the industry blow out to 61 Days.

In summary, 𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗶𝘀 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 to come to the market. This is the time astute sellers are selling, some even buying a more expensive home to take advantage of the cheapest change over costs we’ve ever seen.

In addition, we believe that September and October will be a great opportune time to sell to be in before Christmas 🎄

If you’re thinking about doing something and even if you’re not ready yet, then please call me on 027 424 2910 to discuss the next steps.

This little circle that you are looking at with numbers and words on it is something our team is very proud of.

While our country went into lockdown we made a conscious decision to find solutions for our clients who were partway through campaigns to sell their properties. With the aid of technology and the power of teamwork, Carpenter Realty came together to make remote auctions happen from our auctioneers living room!

Why? For one reason only: #carpentercare

What sets us apart from the rest? The difference is in how we care for our customers. Carpenter Care means if there's a chance we can work hard enough to make it happen, then we will do whatever it takes.

We are a humble bunch at Carpenter Realty. All that flashy stuff isn't really what we are about. But this little circle? It says we have the best auction results out of all the agencies in the North Shore for the last 3 months, and that makes us feel pretty good.

Well done team, you've done us proud.

The time is Now... and it’s a Sellers Market!

Ali Hellesoe - Ray White Real Estate

We have had to adjust to restrictions around open homes & viewings but there is real positivity out there amongst buyers and sellers.

With the lowest interest rates ever, lowest number of homes on the market and an increase in buyer activity & enquiry on properties it’s safe to say we are in a Sellers Market!

May & June are the new spring, so you will see an increase of stock quickly coming on! However, most of the industry has turned to Price by Negotiation or Fixed Priced.... remember an Auction campaign is there to create competition & ensure you get the best money possible. And with the points made about this being a sellers market there is no better time than to act now!

Check out the stats for April 😀

Buyers or Sellers Market?

Ali Hellesoe - Ray White Real Estate

Over the weekend I was asked whether it's a 'Buyers or Sellers market'.

Sellers - why?

▫️ Lowest interest rates - ever.
▫️ Lowest numbers in stock we've seen in a while.
▫️ Double the level of enquiry on listings.
▫️ New buyers entering the market daily.

Every Saturday on Instagram, @alihellesoe_raywhite, I post a Q&A session on social stories where you can ask me anything relating to Real Estate!

This past Saturday I was asked if I think homeowners will be scared to sell post covid-19.

A survey was recently conducted by OneRoof and almost half the respondents said they will continue to buy or sell during 2020. That said, the majority of those that answered the survey thought house prices will be affected.

OneRoof editor Owen Vaughan says that the survey shows Covid-19 has affected Kiwis’ perception of the market, but it hasn’t impacted their plans yet.

Last Thursday night Ray White Carpenter Realty (Beach Haven | Verrans Corner | Glenfield) called 4 Auctions, remotely from our living room inside a bubble of two!

With Covid-19 locking us down this week, the team adapted to a huge challenge of working remotely for our clients & proceeding in hosting our Auctions. Agents spoke to buyers through telephone bidding, while on a google hangouts video call to the screen in front of the Auctioneer.

A live stream was set up with Auctions Live to make sure both buyers & sellers felt comfortable and see what was happening!

Incredibly, the market is still moving with multiple buyers on properties, strong bidding and 2/4 sold under the hammer!!

@raywhitecarpenterrealty committed to finding a way for their clients to transact all within the Parameters of a lockdown!

Along with @apolloauctionsnz, @auctions_live, Ray White Carpenter Realty were the first & only agency to create Remote Auctions online throughout Australasia 🌟

Technology has never been more important, it has definitely changed how we do Real Estate.
