Client login makes selling easier

Harcourts-Client-Login

Paving the way, Harcourts use of technology allows for an easier and more informative selling experience for clients. One of our many technological improvements, client login, is a portal which gives clients 24 hour access to everything they need to know about what is happening with the sale of their property. This tool allows exclusive clients to remain up-to-date with the latest information on their listing.

“We appreciated that our clients wanted to hear about their property’s progress on the go and that it’s not always convenient for clients to meet face-to-face, and that’s what this portal is able to provide”, says Jason Wills, Harcourts Chief Information Officer.

Once registered, the agent then enables access to areas of the portal that will interest the client; allowing access to a range of data, documents and statistics on their listed properties.
The tool houses the marketing plan and calendar, marketing reports and feedback about a property. In addition to this, all of the documents relating to the property are held here, and the client can see how their property is performing on the various real estate portals where their property is marketed. They can receive reminders and alerts for events such as auctions or meetings and when a new document has been uploaded.

Selling property has never been easier, Harcourts tools allow for a stress-free approach to real estate. Thinking of selling? Contact us here for a complimentary market appraisal of your property.

MKR winning house for sale

My-Kitchen-Rules-Winner-Chris-Wright

A memorable piece of New Zealand TV history has hit the market, this enchanting Stone Street residence provided a faultless setting for winners Chris and Bex’s ‘Instant Restaurant’, Aspiring Fare. While most would think the extraordinary mountain and lake views would captivate the cooks, their dishes were testament to the charm the interior also holds. The generous kitchen, with granite work tops, provided an inspiring space for the duo’s ambitious menu, prompting judge Manu to call for more of the ‘perfect’ liver parfait.

The character rich home was carefully chosen for its hosting possibilities and uninterrupted views. With intimate dining spots peppered amongst the regal design, the separate dining area provides a grander space for feasts, entertaining and holding a full TVNZ film crew.

With the close proximity to the beautiful town of Wanaka and both cast and crew proclaiming their love for the ‘Fortress on the Hill’, it is no wonder why My Kitchen Rules winner and Harcourts agent, Chris Wright is proudly bringing this home to the market.

Understanding the upcoming bright line test changes

bright-line-test-nz

Revenue Minister Stuart Nash confirmed that the election “promise” to extend the bright line test from 2 years ownership to 5 years will be enacted, effective for properties acquired after the date of Royal Assent. The intended purpose of extending the bright line test is to ‘dampen property speculation’ and make homes more affordable. The extension means that profits from residential investment properties which are bought and sold within five years will generally be taxable.

Current exemptions from the bright line test will remain. They include the sale of an owner-occupier’s main home, inherited property, or the transfer of property in a relationship settlement.

The extension to the bright line test will apply to residential investment properties purchased from the date on which the bill receives the Royal Assent, which is expected in March. Nash adds that the passage of the bill will also enable the Tax Working Group to factor the change into any consideration of a comprehensive capital gains tax.

Auckland Property Investors Association president Andrew Bruce has previously said that the changes will impact on property speculators rather than long-term investors. “The majority of property investors are in it for the longer than five years and are unlikely to feel massive levels of pain with the extension of the bright line test.
