Whether you’re a thrill seeker or the thought of an auction has you quivering, you need to hear why auctions are the preferred option for many property owners in New Zealand.

Here are some of the benefits of listing your property to be sold by auction:

  • You set the terms and conditions of sale.
  • The property only needs to be opened for buyer viewing at times that suit you best, so the auction process is regarded as the least disruptive method of selling.
  • You and your Salesperson will decide how long your property is on the market before the auction date. This often leads to your property being on the market for a shorter time.
  • An intensive, high profile auction marketing programme puts a spotlight on your property.
  • Marketing with no price attracts interested, cash-in-hand buyers. These buyers are focused on the maximum price they’ll pay, not how low their offer should be. This is the reason properties sold through auction are to a higher sales rates.
  • Auctions create a sense of urgency, bringing buyers to a point of decision. Combined with the excitement of the big day and buyers’ natural competition, this helps establish the highest possible price on the day.

Some companies take away a vendor’s legal right to bid at Auction in New Zealand. Harcourts Cooper & Co leave this choice up to their clients. Harcourts Cooper & Co have faith in their clients understanding of the Auction process as they have been made fully aware of all aspects of the process.


Whilst all companies will say they can do on site Auctions, actions speak louder than words and clearly by their actions it is not their preference! Often agencies will get lured by the attractiveness of being able to call bulk numbers of Auctions in rooms at one time and from a time management perspective it is attractive. At Harcourts Cooper & Co we are fortunate to have the resources to offer both!


Ask any of our team what their point of difference is and each one will provide you with answers ranging from area specialist, to professional negotiator, to expert marketer. Some will offer the benefit of years in the industry and a track record of success while others newer to the business will be able to demonstrate skills attained in other industries that complement the real estate sales process. All Harcourts salespeople are Academy trained with access to the best real estate systems available. Other salespeople may say they are the best, Harcourts Cooper & Co salespeople will show you.


Choosing to sell your home at auction can feel intimidating, but with a good auction marketing programme and a great auctioneer, it can be a smooth process that gets the best price for your property. It may seem as though a lot of the control over the price you get comes down to the auctioneer on auction day, however there is more to it than that. So how can you make sure you pick the right auction specialist for your property?
