If you’re thinking of selling but you’ve missed the summer rush don’t despair, there are some great advantages to selling in the Autumn months. For one, the weather is cooler and your gardens are probably at their very best at this time of year. Add to that the fact that there is now a large pool of buyers who have recently sold, and there will be less properties listed as winter approaches; you have the recipe for an ideal sellers market.
At Carpenter Realty our ‘best not biggest’ philosophy has ensured our sales stats are way ahead of the pack, with our current days on market sitting at less than half the time of our competitors! A recent report of Trade Me sales for January, February and March 2019 shows that a property listed with us spends an average of 27 days on market. Other real estate agencies are averaging 58 days. Our focus on always giving the best possible service means that if you list with one of our sales people you can expect to spend half as many weekends holding open homes than you would with anyone else.
In a market that has slowed over the last 12 months, we are super proud that our auction clearance rate also remains incredibly high. 64% of all our properties that go to auction sell under the hammer with a further 13% selling just after auction. What is our secret?! We like to think it is ‘Carpenter Care’ – that extra bit of coaching that turns out an amazing agent, that extra bit of effort that goes into your marketing, that extra bit of support that our team knows is there: that extra care is our guarantee.
