Kea’s 2013 Every Kiwi Counts survey revealed 40 percent of expats are currently considering purchasing property in New Zealand. While Kiwi expats continue to command big dollars overseas, the pull of ‘brand New Zealand’ and a desire to connect with home is stronger than ever. Buying residential or investment property, especially in the booming Auckland market, is seen by many as a great way to invest those hard-earned dollars for the future.
But buying a home in New Zealand can be a minefield; houses for sale without a price, secret reserves, leaky buildings, high pressure auctions, pushy agents trying to get the highest price for their sellers. The list goes on.
The difficulties are compounded ten times when a buyer is based overseas or is unfamiliar with the local property market. One mistake can prove extremely costly.
Overseas buyers need professional independent advice and someone acting in their best interests throughout the purchasing process to ensure they buy the property that’s right for them and at the best possible price.

Their services include:
