INDUSTRY COMMENT

Why use an agent? This is a topic that comes up often. Why not list privately. An agent will guide you through the process as selling your house is a major transaction and you may not be comfortable dealing with all the necessary paperwork. Agents will handle that. Using an agent will attract more people as agents have a database of prospective buyers and will let them know when your house comes on the market. Your agent should negotiate for you as they are paid by you to negotiate the best price for your house. They don’t get paid unless they get a result that the vendor decides is good enough.

John Lamb

Talking to buyers, running open homes, answering detailed questions, calling back the visitors, convincing them to make an offer, negotiating the price and

conditions – unless you are a salesperson by nature you may find it daunting and difficult. Agents have a support network in their office full of experience in dealing with any issues that may come up in the selling process. Complex paperwork needs to be filled in. Once you find a prospective buyer you will need an “Agreement for the Sale and Purchase of Real Estate”. Agents are experienced in filling this in and getting the correct terms and conditions included for your sale. If you are purchasing privately you are not protected by the rules and regulations that an agent must operate under which are part of the REAA 2008 legislation. A private seller has an emotional attachment to the property and can find

it hard to deal with people who point out things they dislike in their home. A real estate agent acts as a buffer in the dealings between the seller, the buyer, the lawyers, building inspector… Selling privately may take longer than selling with an agent. Don’t forget the time involved to manage the process. Agents want to help you get the best price for your home so they can build a good reputation. Reputation matters for winning new clients. This is a big incentive because a happy seller is a strong referral and a repeat buyer. Agents are better than anyone else because that’s all they do. Identifying prospects, nurturing interest, keeping in touch. They have the motivational capability to call and effectively drag people back and bring them to a contract.

GARDENING

Bring in the bees with bergamot Pick up a bundle of Awapuni lemon bergamot plants from your local supermarket, Bunnings or The Warehouse. Or if you prefer shopping from the comfort of your own home, head to www.awapuni.co.nz and order some plants from our online shop.

Henri Ham

Awapuni Nurseries

It’s no secret why lemon bergamot is also known as bee balm. As the name suggests, bergamot is a balm to bees – they love it! The busy little insects are drawn to colours like blue and purple, which is why plants like lavender, rosemary, Thai basil and, of course, lemon bergamot are so attractive to them. And also the reason all of these plants are often included in our Bee Mix – a bundle of bee-friendly seedlings. Both the leaves and flowers of lemon bergamot are edible. The leaves can be used fresh in teas, wine and lemonade, or chopped in salads on fish dishes and more. And the fresh flowers can also be scattered on dishes like salads.

Bergamot will tolerate full sun if the soil retains moisture but it prefers semi-shade. When you’ve found the right spot with the right conditions, I recommend digging in some compost to the soil before you plant. This will help give the seedling a good kick start of nutrients. Once your plant is established you can pick the leaves and flowers as you desire. If you’re planning on drying the leaves, harvest them before the flower opens. And if you want to dry the flowers, cut them as soon as they’re fully opened. Lastly, if you’d like to bring even more bees to your garden don’t forget to check out our bee mix.
