Real Estate Agents Resources

As professionals in the real estate industry, vendors and purchasers look to real estate agents for guidance on a broad range of matters, some of which are quite technical.  This page is designed to be a resource for New Zealand real estate agents.  Here you will find  articles on aspects of property law that are relevant to you as agents.

To make the process easier for your clients (and for you!) we've created two simple checklists:
The first home buyer’s checklist explains each step from making the offer to the day they pick up the keys.
The seller’s checklist covers everything from listing to paying outstanding water and rates after settlement.
