The Sign That Sells

Consistent, reliable, results, in a shorter timeframe, and at a better price! That is what the statistics are telling us. Our new man on the Team Travis Robertson has analysed all the sales by all the Companies, between Peka eka and Manaka , d in t e fi st si mont s of this year. 111 sales in all. The First National average sales price is 26% above the average, $737,000 compared to all sales at $581,000. This can easily and clearly be e lained o ma ket st en t in i e iced lifestyle sales. What was equally clear though is our ‘Days to ell fi e as 8 da s elo t e a e a e, at 23

days (compared to 31 on average) as a percentage, we are 25% quicker achieving a result! Historically, an early sale will lead to a 5% to 10% premium, as the longer a property is on the market, the more the negotiating power goes to the buyer. What really pleased us then was our clear margin on ‘sale price over Rating Valuation’. Across the board, the average price above RV was 29.6%, while our margin was 36.1%, a ‘nice to have’ bonus $$$ for Vendors dealing with an energetic and e e ienced local Team Give First National Ōtaki a call when you are ready to sell!
