We are in the process of renovating before we go to the market and are considering whether to put a swimming pool in or not?

Swimming pool
Luxury homes
Hibiscus Coast

Not necessarily... It is one of the most frequently asked questions but in some cases swimming pools can put off prospective buyers who fear the costs associated with maintaining it along with safety with the little ones and taking up space in the backyard. 

If you are deciding whether or not to put a pool in, give me a call and I would be more than happy to pop around and give you some advice. It is rear to see properties in Orewa, Red Beach, Stanmore Bay and all along the coast have swimming pools as there are so many beautiful beaches we are lucky to have on our doorstep.

We are ready to go on the market now. What are the next steps?

Steps for selling my home

The next step for you is choosing the right agent and company to represent your property in the market place which is the single most important decision you will make. I recommend getting at least 3 market appraisals from different real estate agencies and choose the agent you feel most comfortable working with and you think is going to achieve the best result for you.
