Keeping On Top of the Sales Process

not a bad real estate market

Hi folks,

In hindsight, those for whom the selling process was particularly stressful say that their main gripe is that they didn’t know what was going on throughout the marketing process on account of their agent not being in contact on a regular basis. While lack of feedback about viewings or the marketing process may not mean that an agent is slack, it is inevitably interpreted by anxious vendors as such.

Why you should inspect those other properties

tips for homebuyers

Hi folks,

In light of the shortage of listings in the Upper Hutt market compared with recent years I thought I would ask the question, “As a buyer, have you ever bothered to look at properties that don’t have the features you are after?” Most people would be surprised at the very thought, but in fact, there are times when it might be worth it.

The best-selling months are coming

gvs are up

Hi folks,

With the holiday season behind us there will be a number of home owners looking to take advantage of an active real estate market over the coming months. Historically, January, February and March have been some of the best-selling months for residential real estate and we see no reason why this year will be any different.

The stats don't tell the whole story

Hi folks,

I thought it was time for an update on what’s been happening in our wonderful world of Upper Hutt Real Estate as it’s been a short while since I did. October showed a jump in sales to 62 dwellings, well up on the previous month but down from 72 in October 2017.

Interpreting the real estate Stats of winter


Hi folks,

I’m writing this on a particularly wet and miserable day and I’m counting down the days to daylight saving and brighter evenings (Only 35 to go). Winter on the whole hasn’t been bad for the weather but it has been good for real estate sales with the average number of days for a sale being 28 which is pretty good historically.

I have won Tommy's Top Agent award. Not for the first time.

totara park

Hi folks

It’s that time of year again when Tommy’s Real Estate has their annual prizegiving and award ceremony and I’m very pleased to say that I have won the Top agent award. It’s not my first and I’m really hoping it won’t be my last so I would like to take this opportunity to thank a couple of people.

The first person is my wife Rosie, it’s fair to say that she must have the patience of a saint to put up with me! How many times have I said "Quiet night in, just me and you and the TV” And then gone back to work until late at night leaving her with our very cute pooch Ollie?  Way too many! I think she’s beginning to like the peace and quiet a bit too much, so I will try and do better. (It’s in writing now so I can’t take that back) The second thanks is to Paige, “Yep no worries, I will watch your game tomorrow” before saying sorry I’ve got to work Saturday morning. (Actually, that’s more of an apology, sorry Paget)
