To Sell or Not to Sell, a Professional in Real Estate can still help!

How do I sell my house in Whangarei? Is selling your own home worth it? These are probably the questions you search on Google when you started thinking about selling your home. It can also leave you wondering how to start addressing paperwork that goes with the selling. Home selling does not have to be complicated, especially when you have a professional Whangarei Real Estate agent behind you.

But the first thing that needs a definite answer is – are you decided on selling your home? To help you in your journey to determine if you should really sell your home, consider life circumstances and these tips:

Goal Setting

Before finally deciding to sell your home, you need to understand your “why.” Understand your long-term goals so that you can always go back to your why and power through obstacles when troubles arise.

Once you know your “why,” set SMART goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.

Specific – What exactly is your goal? Is it to create passive income for financial independence? Or would you like to quit your 9-5 job and build up a business?

Measurable – How much passive income do you want to earn from selling your property?

Achievable and Realistic – Is your goal realistic? Is it possible within the next five years? 

Timely – How long will it be before you actually achieve your passive income goal?

Understand Your Capacity

Understand your current opportunities and threats. You need to know your current financial standing. How is your cash flow and how long can you wait to make that sale? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you take account of what you currently have. Once you understand your weaknesses, you can have a proper strategy to fill that gap. 

Pick a Property Strategy

Depending on what capacity you’re in, the strategy is going to change dramatically. A low equity position means you need a higher equity margin on the deal. If you’re in a low cash flow position, you need to chase a higher yield. If you want to understand how much you should sell a particular property, get a free property appraisal from a trusted professional in Whangarei.


Selling property is a numbers game. You need to remember that you are working on logic and numbers, not emotions. If you lose a deal because the numbers don’t stack up, don’t worry about it and keep going. Being able to sell your property at the best price will be well worth the wait.

However, perseverance alone is not enough. Sometimes, you must consult experts to avoid common mistakes and save time. If you’re ready to sell your property and would like a free consultation with a trusted real estate agent, connect with the right one now.
