Selling a rural lifestyle property

Selling a rural lifestyle property is a specialist field. Building relationships with buyers requires the ability to understand their needs and wants and provide them with the specialist knowledge they require to make their decisions. At Lodge we have salespeople with local knowledge and rural expertise to help market your new lifestyle block to as broad a range of buyers as possible. Most of them live on their own block, or have done in the past, which gives them practical experience to help you achieve your sale.

We ensure no stone is left unturned in our quest to find the buyer for your property. Our objective is to get you the best possible price for your property preferably in the least possible time and with the minimum of fuss to you. Selling your property is one of the most financially and personally significant challenges you will face, therefore, we’ve developed an approach that gives you a professional, a carefully planned, a stress free, and ultimately a profitable experience.

We believe the best way to secure the highest price for your property is to get more buyers to view your home. To achieve this we create comprehensive marketing programs to attract buyers. We make it no secret that we purposefully attract local active buyers, out of area buyers, passive buyers, international buyers, and owner occupiers in order to get them to compete for your property.

Local Buyers

The popular lifestyle choice is often a decision Hamiltonians make as their children begin school. Our extensive reach across the Hamilton residential and commercial market through our more than 70 salespeople provides us with access to a large number of buyers seeking a rural lifestyle change. Our significant presence in Saturday’s Waikato Times through our exclusive lift-out provides passive buyers the chance to discover your property whilst browsing over their morning coffee. The networks of our specialty rural lifestyle salespeople also provides a pro-active tool to prompt passive buyers to view your home.

Lodge Early Alert (our online property alert) and the sheer number of weekend opens we conduct, coupled with the extensive buyer networks our salespeople cultivate means active local Hamilton buyers naturally contact us when house hunting.

National Buyers

The NZ Realtors Network, our exclusive referral network which sells one in four New Zealand homes, provides us access to buyers transferring to Hamilton from around the country. The network extends the length and breadth of New Zealand and includes dominant regional real estate agents such as Auckland’s Barfoot & Thompson, the central North Island’s Property Brokers and Wellington’s Tommy’s.
