At NZ Buyers Agent we know the complexities involved in investing in property from overseas.
Whether you are returning home, relocating to New Zealand or considering an investment here and need to gain an understanding of the market, NZ Buyers Agent can help you at every step of the decision process. We cover the entire property industry from the residential sector to the commercial and industrial sector to the elite country estate.

We will:

  • Give a free phone consultation so you can assess whether you are comfortable about working with NZ Buyers Agent.
  • Search all areas that fit your requirements, lifestyle and budget.
  • Inspect all properties that fit your list of criteria.
  • Research and report on each selected property, based on recent sales in the area and other industry reports, to ensure you will be paying the best price possible
  • Negotiate price, terms and conditions directly with the seller or real estate agent.
  • Bid at auction on your behalf.
  • Arrange building and pest inspections, strata reports, digital photos or videos, solicitors, conveyancers, powers of attorney and valuers.

From October 2018 restrictions were imposed on foreign investment for existing residential property (excepting New Zealand, Australian or Singaporean Citizens), there is no restriction on commercial investment.
