The Vendor

“Great result, Hopefully you have now got all the Halswell & other Prevelles lots to sell!!

Thanks so much Kim.”

Associate Comment

A real challenging market to determine the possible market price of this lot. With titles still to be issued (within 60 days) & only purchased by the owner in March ($315K), it was a leap of faith to as to where this may sit in this veracious demand for land. I have very clear & narrow criteria for marketing via Deadline, we must have an ‘X’ factor, period. It is an extremely frustrating method, especially for the buyer. The key for gaining the Highest Market Price is making the process to own a property fast & easy for any purchaser, this creates the best competition without delay.     

On this occasion, the Deadline worked.

The Vendor

Hi Kim. Pop the cork, it’s time to celebrate. As you say in real estate speak, our buyers have gone unconditional. Thanks for your part in bringing this sale to a successful conclusion. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with you and it’s actually been a lot of fun (not an emotional seesaw usually associated with property sale and purchase). Talk soon. Cheers Robin”

The Buyer

“Hi Kim, just want to say you have been a pleasure to deal with. Helped to restore our trust in property agents.  If asked by anyone , you’ll be our only recommendation.  Looking forward to concluding our own sale too. Many thanks to you and your clients, we are very excited about our new home. Liz & Graeme

Associate Comment

My client’s contacted me from observing a sign I had on a Worsleys Road property sale, some 12 months earlier. We had a conversation around their understanding of this industry, the extortionate costs associated with the service and the obsessive insistence of auction being the only option offered by the mainstream franchises groups. These being the sole reason as to why they had sold ALL their properties privately. As I could not have agreed more with their concerns, our proposition being more of a ‘sub-contractor’ rather than a latent rockstar was instantly appealing.

This property leapt off the mark and attracted solid interest from active buyers only, all (circa 90 parties) attending one set viewing time only – Under Offer in 6 days. All noted an appreciation for the transparency of the marketing, a way of presenting the property without the frustration or delay associated with; no price declaration, auction or deadline sale.

Thanks Stonehouse, Brilliant result. Kim, you made this a smooth easy process. A great way to conclude our dealings with this property. Catch up for a beer when you have some time, my shout.

Associate Comment

A long history with this client & property, being a home that I managed the rental of for the owner for some time, privately. Supreme location that is well sort after in property booms for redevelopment. Sitting on RMD land, this proposition as presented to the market was always going to draw wide interest from investors, developers & first home buyers.

It did exactly that with a first (& only) Sunday viewing appointment, bringing in excess of 120 people over the hour it was open. This being the highest amount of interested parties I have ever had through a property at a single viewing time in the more than 20 years I have been in this industry. Five written offers presented on the Wednesday with an unconditional contract being accepted at $575 000. This was not the highest offer, it was the cleanest.

Unconditionally sold in 6 days – happy with that.

Client Comment

Thanks Kim, I can’t thank you enough for your true integrity and Stonehouse’s business model. You are truly focused on the vendor, not your own back pocket like the big franchise agents whilst providing a first class experienced service. You achieved a fantastic result with a smooth process all the way for both parties.

You’re a pleasure to deal with and know the industry inside out. Originally I discussed selling with other agencies but couldn’t get my head around the exorbitant fees charged to sell a house. Especially if you look at an agents total time spent getting to a completed sale, it’s just not right and this sale proved you don’t need a big named brand.

Research and this sale shows 70% of houses are sold via advertising through trademe, auctions are frustrating for buyers, time consuming for vendors, easy for agents and don’t always achieve the best results. Your time and effort put into this sale with viewings by appointment, 30 interested parties, the discussions, negotiations and advice truly showed your knowledge and skill in this industry.

Thanks again, looking forward to doing this again with Stonehouse.

Associate Comment

Referred from a college, it was an honour to work with the owners on this sale. An immaculately presented property, having been the recipient of detailed maintenance, improvement & upkeep over the years of ownership. This proposition attracted around 80 people to the first Sunday viewing, having gone live on the web the prior Thursday. The first offer written that afternoon and frankly, all 7 of the final agreements presented on the Wednesday would have bought the property – it just got down to the cleanest contract.

Sold unconditionally in 6 days.

“Thank you so much for all you have done for us. Your positive attitude for getting the result we wanted was unshakable, you have been amazing.”

Associate Comment

From a recommendation, we picked this property up from another agency who had presented it to the market with a fixed price, auction (failed to sell) & back to a fixed price over a 9 week period. The process had not yielded an offer that the owners would accept. Having been fully remodelled/renovated including but limited to; double glazing, fully relined & insulated, diesel central heating (19 panel heaters), rewired, plumbed painted & rooved – this 310m² proposition was that of a new build in a supreme part of the city.

However, this location has a very clear ‘time to sell’, understanding this was crucial to its ultimate performance. The sale of this property was a perfect demonstration of impeccable timing, market & location understanding with a departure from a ‘one size fits all – auction’ culture that simply fails more often than most would imagine.

We achieved a sale price of more than $50 000 over the previously presented offers, plus a cost to sell at more than $35 000 less than the fees quoted by the former Agency.  A more than $85 000 gain to our client at the stroke of a pen.

Happy with that.

Stonehouse refer to breaking the mold…well break the mold they did and I couldn’t be happier!

Talk about commitment to the process and by that I mean to both vendor and purchaser- Kim is a sublime professional.

From the moment he first talked me through his approach and how we’d take my property to the market I felt at ease and the result was exactly as we’d planned.

Why you’d go anywhere else I’m not sure. I’m so sure I’m back for more shortly…”

“Awesome – glad we opted to go with an Agent, I would have been terrible at fielding calls myself. Definitely worth paying a professional..” 

Associate Comment

An ‘As is – Where is’ proposition. This property was going to attract developers/land bankers with the zoning RMD. Offering it as a short Deadline was the only viable option and it attracted solid interest within minutes of being posted to trademe. Typically, a mixture of unconditional offers, along with the odd contract requiring a due diligence condition. Effectively, we exceeded our expectation substantially, a reflection of this current post Covid market. The client considered selling privately.

Associate Comment

We brought this property into the market under a Deadline Sale campaign, no real comparative sales on this size land (1233m²) & dwelling configuration being so close to the centre of the township. A substantial main home, fitted out yoga studio/gym plus a sleep-out.
Regretfully the Covid-19 lockdown was implemented over the country & continuance of this process was halted.
However, we did get valuable market feedback from those who viewed the property that allowed us to come back with a Negotiable Over price so as to expedite this situation the moment this pandemic situation lifted. We achieved a multi offer.

Associate Comment

Having sold property for these owners before, engagement by them was based on trust & professional experience.

 We elected to crack straight into presenting this property transparently to the market, due to the current post Covid-19 conditions.

 The first week yielded 9 interested parties with only one being in a position to put pen to paper.

“Almost on a daily basis, I wrote emails to a person I never met, a person I don’t know what he looks like, a person I wouldn’t recognise if I would pass him on the street. Still, that person did so much for me and not only because of that, for my part, I developed the feeling as if I had made a friend.

And as it always is with friends, it hurts when you lose one. That’s how I feel when I talk about a certain Kim Franklin.

Kim, I don’t know if we will ever meet but shall I ever set foot on New Zealand soil again (which is absolutely possible), I will seek you out and treat you to a nice dinner at a place of your choice. Apart from that, be reassured of my everlasting gratitude.”

Associate Comment

My owner had returned to Germany, engaged me on the basis of our service offering – Time & Attendance plus Disbursements, he was absolutely adamant.

The peninsula is a niche market, a destination and the property needed to feature the privileged, secluded privacy it offered.

A harbour view and less than 20 minutes from the city centre over the summit road. We attracted many parties looking for a lifestyle, with four offers being in a position to put pen to paper.

“Complete legend, amazing – we got there in the end. Epic, well done us. So happy”.

Associate Comment

Purchased as an ‘As is – Where is’ property due to 2011 earthquake damage. Formally the Duke of Cambridge Hotel (1872) and reverted to a residence on the cancellation of its Liquor License in 1894. The property had extensive structural work requirements which were all executed under a Building Exemption Consent. It attracted good interest within minutes of loading the property to Trademe, under offer within the first week. Realistically, a maintenance animal being a total timber building – we lost this first contract on this point. Second offer subject to sale of a peninsula property, these purchasers could not get a sale to confirm on their property, as was our third offer. Our fourth offer stuck – the property was in the market for 14 weeks.

Associate Comment

A vendor client I have sold several properties for, this was purchased ‘As is – Where is’ and underwent an extensive renovation/remodelling. Re piled/ring foundation all under full Building Consent. Its intended use changed where selling this home was now preferable, rather than holding/rented. I formulated a CMA on where the property would likely yield in the current market. The owner had a college who was prepared to make an unconditional offer at this level. Contracts were drafted and the sale confirmed.
