Industry comment

It’s not that easy Selling a Property is easy, right. You just slap a sign up, put an ad in the paper and wait for the offers to pour in. Yeah right. Let’s look at this analytically. Can Mr or Mrs Home Seller expect to do the following jobs effectively? 1. Deciding what jobs need doing prior to starting the marketing process. ie what is going to give the home owner a return on investment spent. 2. Write an effective script that accurately describes the property and will inspire passive buyers to respond. 3. Have market knowledge. 4. Photograph the property in the best light. 5. Tap into extensive databases of known active buyers. 6. Act impartial with prospective purchasers. 7. Negotiate impartially. 8. Provide knowledge of the legal procedures involved in selling a property.

Mick Hydes & Debbie Boon

9. Ability to stay impersonal. 10. Disclose any problems with the property. 11. Ability to write the sale and purchase agreement. A Professional Real Estate Agent has to under legislation (REAA2008), perform all of the above actions and more whilst complying with the Real Estate Agents’ Code of Professional Conduct and Client Care. They take on a lot of responsibility when listing a property and have minimum standards to work above. There is a rather hefty price tag to pay today if

something goes a little pear shaped in the process. So sellers and buyers have peace of mind when dealing with agents today, that there is a big brother looking over your shoulder. On the other hand, if you are purchasing privately, there are no rules or regulations. Effectively the home owner could mislead you verbally or not disclose a problem

at all. However, as a private seller you should disclose any information you are aware of that may be relevant to the buyer, this includes: •

Any weather tightness issues

information was correct. A professional real estate agent will charge you a fee, this is fully disclosed at listing time with an actual dollar amount, based on the top of the appraised price range. Your agent should be able to generate competition amongst the buyers and portray your property in a way that will more than compensate the fee they charge you. They will hit the market at the right price more times than not, ensuring top dollar in a timely manner. The private seller may get real estate agents around to provide market appraisals before setting the asking price or rely on advertised prices of sold properties, which may have sold for more or less. owned the property. The buyer could claim damages (or re-negotiate a reduced buying price, or even cancel the contract) if you breach the terms of the sale and purchase agreement, including the warranties. You could also be liable for legal action if you provide misleading or false information about the property - even if you honestly believed the

We have recently noticed several ex real estate agents in town trying to sell houses, yes they have the skills to perform most of the tasks they were trained to do, except they haven’t got the contacts and real time market knowledge any more. The other thing they all lack is the database of active buyers which all professional real estate agents will have. So they are totally relying on hooking the passive buyers. Wonder how much it has cost in advertising so far? At a guess, it’s getting close to what an agent’s full payday would have been and still no sale.

We have heard people comment on the house down the street that sold for $xyz, when in fact it was considerably different. They have no in-depth market knowledge.

Buyers aren’t silly either, they understand there is a real risk when purchasing from a private seller. Buyers of private sales also want to save the commission money the seller is trying to save.

They run the risk of underselling in two ways, firstly by under selling because of setting the price too low and secondly by over pricing and following the market down with price decreases and eventually giving it away.

Selling your house yourself may not be as simple as you think, and may take a lot of time, effort and dollars. You should also consider whether you would be happy presenting yourself and your house to strangers.

Open homes

Health and safety and open homes The real estate industry has recently been mocked for its cautious approach to the new health and safety laws, but huge penalties mean it has no other option. Harcourts CEO Chris Kennedy says the new laws are untested and Harcourts is proceeding with caution. “Until businesses have a clear understanding of the consequences, this is the only pragmatic approach.” Suggestions that open home attendees will have to sign a hazards register which identifies any potential hazard you can possibly dream up – such as tripping over a laundry step or slipping down a driveway – is simply ridiculous, Mr Kennedy says. The aim of the health and safety laws, which came into effect on April 4, is to cut down on New Zealand’s workplace injury and death toll, which is poor in comparison with similar countries. The law requires employers to do everything practically possible to keep people safe in any working environment. For those who fail to do so there are serious consequences. Some of the most severe penalties include five years in prison and a fine of up to $600,000. Understandably, Mr Kennedy says, the real estate industry as a whole, and other employers are proceeding with extreme caution. “Like many other businesses and industries, real estate professionals have had to make changes to the way we conduct business. We need to be very careful because the laws are untested. “For us, a workplace is any place in which we conduct business – our offices, our cars, managed

properties and open homes.” The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s (REINZ) guidelines on how to minimise risk in these workplaces are being used. The guide was put together with help from the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA) and is comprehensive. Harcourts advises sales consultants to identify hazards at open homes and have attendees sign a hazard register.

The comprehensive REINZ guidelines lists many potential hazards that could be included, however it is up to the individual sales consultant to use their common sense when preparing the hazards register. These may include risks such as open drains, unfenced swimming pools or in specific markets, such as Christchurch, hazards relating to earthquake damaged properties. “REINZ has put together fulsome

guidelines to protect our industry, however, it is, of course, up to each individual sales consultant to use their judgement to identify what the real hazards are.” Mr Kennedy says he makes no apology for the comprehensive guidelines. “Until the health and safety laws are tested, no one knows just what the implications will be. And when something is unknown, I always proceed with caution.”

Gardening

Onions, onions, onions I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – onions are a must-have for any vege garden. The number of dishes that require, or taste better with, onions is never-ending. So, it just makes sense to have this staple growing in your garden too. And, as I’ve also said before, don’t stop at growing just the brownskinned, white-flesh Pukekohe longkeeper variety. Stock up your vege patch with a variety of different types of onion. At Awapuni we also sell spring onion, red spring onion, red onion and pearl drop onion plants. Pop down to your local supermarket, The Warehouse or Bunnings and pick up some of our newspaper wrapped bundles of onion seedlings. Or head to our online store at www.awapuni.co.nz and get them delivered direct to your door. If you’re growing Pukekohe

Tod Palenski Awapuni Nurseries longkeeper, which is known for its resistance to bolting and ability to be stored for a long time, it grows best in soil that’s friable. By that I mean soil that goes crumbly when you touch it. You can plant red onions with your longkeepers as they like the same conditions.

longkeepers will be ready to harvest in 20 to 24 weeks.

Dig a hole about 3cm deep and plant each plant around 10cm away from its neighbour in rows that are about 20cm apart. If you’re a spinach fan, try popping this in between the rows as it makes a great companion plant. Keep aphids at bay and your Pukekohe

Pearl drop onions produce a pure white cocktail onion that has crisp, round and slightly flattened bulbs – perfect for pickling. They like to grow in rich soil and full sun. And spring onions (of any colour) will grow just about anywhere – including pots. Plant each seedling

3 to 4cm apart, and in six to eight weeks your spring onions should reach a height of 70-75cm and your pearl drop onions around 45cm high. Keep the soil moist and when the tips of the leaves begin to brown it’s time to harvest. I like to pop new seedlings into the ground every month for a year-round, continuous supply.

What to do if a frozen pipe bursts When temperatures drop, water gets cold and when water gets cold, it can freeze. When water freezes in your pipes, it can spell disaster.

one, the best thing you can do is call a plumber, but if your plumber is busy, be prepared to warm up those pipes.

When water freezes, it expands and can burst the pipe or cause a leak.

Turn up your heating.

If you turn your tap on and only a slight drizzle of water comes out or if your toilet doesn’t fill up, it may be a sign of a frozen pipe somewhere. If you have no idea where to find your frozen pipe or if you even have

Here are a few tips on how to prevent your pipes freezing and what to do if they burst. This may seem like an obvious one but keeping your house at a constant temperature warmer than the outside temperature could help keep the water flowing, especially if you have internal piping. Put some insulation around the interior and exterior piping.

To advertise in this directory, please phone Emma on 03 307 7936

If you can get to your attic/upper crawl space and you have piping up there, buy some Pink Batts, some disposable coveralls, gloves, a dust mask, a utility knife and blades. Don your safety gear and climb into your attic/crawl space. Fit the Pink Batts around your pipes and cut to size with the utility knife. This should hold in some heat and help stop your pipes from freezing. Turn off your water. If you suspect a pipe in your house has frozen, you might need to turn off the water mains to prevent further freezing and pressure on

your pipes. But what do you do if your frozen pipe bursts? Turn off your water mains. To prevent any further damage to either your piping or your property, turn off the water mains until you can get a plumber in to sort out any issues your pipes have. Call a plumber… or 5. If your pipe has burst, unfortunately time is not a luxury. Call all the plumbers in the phone book and find the one that works for you.
