You’ve heard of the Auckland auctions that get bigger than usual, but what about the ones that aren’t?
We’ve all seen the pictures of the big day in Auckland, but that’s not how it works.
The auction ninja, a new service that’s launched in Auckland in April, is a real estate buyer’s dream.
In an online chat, it’s clear that some Aucklanders are still waiting for a big day.
“The auction ninjas are a very good way to buy Auckland’s property,” said Ian Tummin, an Auckland-based property broker.
“You’ll be able to buy it on a day when there’s a lot of excitement, and when lots of people are there.”
The auction-ninjas are designed to help people who are planning to buy their first home in Auckland.
“There are lots of really well-known auctions that you can actually buy at a high price, like the Stirling and St Helens auctions, and I’m sure the same can be said for the Mt Hope auctions,” he said.
But how do you get your hands on a house?
Tummin said it was possible to buy your first home at the Auckland auction, and then the ninja team would go and work on it for you.
“You’ll actually be working with them to make sure that they’ve done everything they can, and that you’ve got everything that you need, and all of that is in a nice package,” he explained.
If you’re in the market for a home, there’s also a process that goes on when you sign a contract with a property agent, but there are other ways you can buy your home.
“When you’re buying a house in Auckland there are some great things that are happening at auctions that are really exciting, so it’s a good way of getting into the market and being in the right place,” he added.
There are also a number of websites that will let you look at a property and buy it, which can be a good source of cash, especially if you have a mortgage.
“I would definitely recommend doing it online,” said Tummine.
But if you don’t have a good credit history, it might be worth investing in a realtor, which might be more suitable if you’re new to buying.
“If you don’ have a credit score, I would definitely go with a realtors,” he concluded.
The Auckland auction ninja has a list of more than 3,500 properties that you could buy in the Auckland market, and the service will update every day with an updated list of available properties.
You can buy in Auckland from November through March.
