Having just signed out of another financial year on a very positive note I am pleased to report that the year finished a lot stronger than it started (2012 was one of my quietest winters on record). While in house real estate rankings in my opinion are a not true gauge of success it was satisfying to finish the year as the number one salesperson for the Parklands office.
They say success follows busy people and yes I definitely am that, however I prefer to say, that success follows good clients and I can certainly testify to a great clientele! What more can I say than a big thank you; your support and belief in my expertise. The success stories that we have created together has made it all worthwhile.
After receiving feedback like this from Lisa and Carlin I would have to say that job satisfaction does not get much better than this!
|“Our agent was excellent. Great knowledge of our unique circumstances re: the sale of our earthquake damaged property. The whole experience was the best thing to happen to us since the quakes and has allowed us to move forward with our lives. Griff's knowledge and dedication to providing an opportunity for people like ourselves to move forward is an incredible asset to the eastern suburbs and has allowed home owners to take back a sense of control over their lives”.|
Following good demand for these homes (we now have a 150+ strong e-database of potential purchasers) and we continue to have a steady flow of these properties coming into the market. Keep an eye out here on my website, or subscribe to our mailing list to stay in the loop.
While I appreciate that some have reservations about auctions I would have to say the it has become the “Kiwi way” of doing business,especially with TradeMe becoming such a big part of our everyday commerce. While amusing, it wasn't surprising when a young lady recently requested the “buy now” price for one of my auctions - I think that says it all!
For buyers it brings greater transparency, more info is supplied by the vendor to assist with due diligence, and the opportunity to compete openly - unlike multiple offers or deadline sales. For sellers it means more control and the opportunity to negotiate with the full market as opposed to just one individual. There is the opportunity to realise true market value through healthy competition,with fewer days on the market. For me, it brings more structure to the way I run my business, it is a great medium to achieve great results for my clients and the list to sell periods are shorter.
Moving with a changing market, 70% of my business over the last twelve months has been transacted through the auction process. Consequently the average list to sell period for those properties was a mere 22 days! Now that has got to be a real winner for clients and while I generally strike up a robust and positive working relationship with my clients I think it is fair to say that most prefer minimal intrusion into their busy lifestyles when selling.
2012 saw 12% capital growth (1% per month increase) for the twelve month period and 2013 is tracking with an even greater intensity of growth. With demand for accommodation in Canterbury at levels we have not experienced for years, wisdom would say that those who own real estate and those who are looking to invest into it are likely to see strong growth over the short to medium term.
So again thank you for your support and the opportunity to work with you over these last twelve months. I look forward to another positive year ahead and to the opportunity of assisting with real estate solutions in these exciting times during the rebuild phase of our city.
