First National Western

Like Me


Expertise, Resources, Commitment, Process Four simple but powerful words. Once you appoint Western First National, you’ll see all four working in unison.

Expertise

A long established track record for outstanding results, selling real estate in the greater New Plymouth area and the many surrounding localities. Nothing helps more than a high level of awareness of our area’s history, current affairs and emerging factors when it comes to the sale of your property.

Resources

Western First National is backed by the resources of a national network. So, our website is optimised to ensure customers have the best chance of finding your property before someone else’s; we use buyer and tenant matching systems to ensure no stone is left unturned.

Commitment

At Western First National we believe in commitment that defines the difference. Many of our team have practiced in real estate for over a decade or more. That’s something we’re very proud of. Experience is a resource that matters when it comes to achieving the best possible result.

Process

Once listed with us, we immediately set about notifying our qualified buyer database that your home has become available. We don’t sit about waiting for other marketing efforts to get underway. While we’re preparing newspaper advertising, your home will be showcased on the internet. Before your signboard arrives, we’ll have already been working hard, behind the scenes, creating momentum. The entire team at Western First National is committed to completing your sale with care, so you can be on your way to the next chapter in your life as soon as possible.

As your Listing Agent, I offer... Selling a valuable real estate asset worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more is not like selling a car, or a piece of furniture. Yet strangely, some people spend less on marketing their house than they would on a classified advertisement to sell an old couch. Experts suggest that one per cent of a property’s value should be invested in its advertising. We are not saying this is always necessary, however professional marketing is so important. As part of your professional marketing package we offer the following complimentary marketing solutions....

Marketing It’s crucial to get the message through to every possible buyer in the market for a home like yours, in the shortest possible time frame. The more interested parties, the more opportunity to maximise your sale price. We take care to consult with you on the detail of a marketing campaign that will suit you right down to the ground. When we’ve completed your appraisal, we’ll make a recommendation and arrive at a marketing campaign through consultation.

Technology Nine out of ten people start their search on-line whether they’re searching to buy, rent or sell a property because it’s faster and much more convenient. But with so much information available on-line, consumers rightly demand ease of access. That’s why First National offers a national website and every member office has its own independent website, search engine optimised, to ensure customers can find our listings as easily as possible. Our sophisticated, yet simple to use real estate search function enables consumers to find a large range of property types New Zealand wide including Residential, Commercial, Rural, Rental and even Holiday Accommodation. We also make use of other industry websites including TradeMe Property, Realestate.co.nz jamiegemmell.co.nz, and offer the option of professional photography through Open2View. Our signature site www.newplymouthfn.co.nz has been designed to be extremely user friendly, and compliments these other online marketing opportunities.

Communication Be sure to ask any agent you interview to show you how and when they will communicate with you to keep you well informed. Your agent’s commitment to communicate with you regularly regarding current market conditions, buyer feedback and what’s happening during the sale process is essential. Selecting an agent who reports reliably after inspections allows you to understand exactly how the market is responding to your property. This feedback allows you to make informed decisions about what can be done to eliminate or minimise reoccurring objections so your sale price can be maximised. I will use your preferred method of communication (writing, text, face to face or phone) to update you every week.

First National Western


Preparing your property for sale Preparation and presentation are key to ensuring a successful sale and the best possible price. To help us maximise your sale price, we have provided some tips that have proven to be invaluable to successful home sellers:

Consider re-configuring rooms

If you are advertising a three bedroom home for sale then that is what people will be coming to see. Consider re-organising the rooms prior to the sale to show them to their best advantage. Hire or borrow some bedroom furniture, and put excess items in storage.

Tidy up the garden

Keep in mind that first impressions count. Dig out weeds, put mulch on the garden beds, keep paths and driveways swept, prune and shape trees, and make sure rubbish bins are clean and tucked away.

Get rid of the clutter

Crowded shelves and drawers can make rooms and storage space seem cluttered and smaller. Consider putting nonessential items in storage throughout the sale period. Having a good clear out, and even a garage sale, can help considerably when it comes time to pack up and move to your new house.

Not everyone loves your cat as much as you!

If you have pets, it’s also advisable to keep them out of the house, or ask friends or family if they will look after them during inspections. Remember to air your house, and store your pet bowls and toys prior to inspections too.

Remember, first impressions count

Set the scene for your prospective buyer. Draw attention to your home’s best features by displaying fresh flowers. Put some easy listening music on, but keep the volume very low. Some people like to leave fresh coffee brewing or provide a pleasant fragrance using essential oils. However, be careful not to go too over the top.

Choosing the right agent Choosing the wrong agent could cost you money and delay your opportunity to move forward. The real estate market is fast paced and in a constant state of evolution. Figuring out how best to sell your home, at any given point, is something that can be immensely stressful. We’re conscious of dealing with people and their lives. The emotional as well as the rational. Utilising all the resources available to us through First National, as well as our many years of experience, we take time and care in dealing with your real estate needs. We regard our staff as partners in the business and select our team as much for their people skills as for their experience and track records. We are straightforward and honest in our dealings with you and have many satisfied, loyal clients. We want you to be a client for life. We care about you and your property. We take the time to consider your personal needs and wishes and are committed to making sure the sale of your property is handled correctly. Our agency is enthusiastic and we’re committed to constantly training to assure our procedures always deliver the best outcome for you. There’s no room for a pushy or confrontational approach - we favour co-operation and consultation.

First National Western


Be sure to ask your agent • What is your track record? • How will you achieve the maximum price for my property? • Who is the most likely type of buyer for my property? • Where will the buyers for my property come from? • How will you target your marketing to find a buyer for my property? • How many buyers does your agency currently have on their database that are looking for a property like mine? • Do you have an up-to-date website? • How many enquiries do you receive from it and what other websites will you list our property on? • What percentage of enquiry are you currently getting from the local newspaper and other advertising? • How and when do you conduct inspections? • What happens when you show a buyer through my property? • How and when will I receive feedback and be kept informed? • Will I be locked into an agreement even if you are not doing what you said you would?

First National and the Community At First National Real Estate we believe in supporting New Zealand communities which is why we raise funds in support of the First National Foundation. The First National Foundation - the philanthropic arm of First National Real Estate - was founded to focus fundraising efforts to strengthen local and national charitable initiatives. Every year First National members raise thousands of dollars to help their local communities in times of need - money for schools, community building, and healthcare, local sporting organisations - the list goes on. On a National level, First National Foundation partners with National Burn Centre to provide iPads and internet connectivity. This provides patients with the ability to connect directly with their families through Skype, email and social media. Many burns victims are separated from their families, usually for three months but sometimes up to 6 months initially. Often family members are left at home with little connection with family which does not assist in their long term healing process. The iPads also greatly assist young children with severe burns to view videos during their dressings changes, which can be painful and can take up to three hours at a time. By having the connections and support of family and friends back home, these patients are able to rest and recuperate mentally as well as physically while at the National Burn Centre.

We also feel it important to ‘give back’ to our local community where ever possible. First National Western
