Frequently Asked Questions

How many buyers do you have for our property?

This is understandably a common question sellers ask when interviewing agents. Because as a seller, what you want is a buyer, right? But for a moment consider this trick question… Which agent do you think has the most buyers? a) The agent with the largest pack of salespeople. b) The agent that does the most advertising.…

How can we DECREASE our selling costs?

The first step to maximising your profit is to increase your selling price. But once you’ve done everything possible to increase your price, the only other way to maximise your profit – is to reduce your expenses…   1. Avoid fundamental mistakes and traps. Just like we spoke about in “How to increase your selling price“… Some of the…

What’s an ‘Unbiased Market Appraisal’?

Unlike a ‘FREE Market Appraisal’, which is really the bait salespeople use to get in your door – to convince you to sell with them… It’s a ‘sales pitch’ and therefore not worth the paper it’s written on. An ‘Unbiased Market Appraisal’ is where you find an experienced agent, that has an excellent ‘Appraisal Accuracy Rate’…

Client Case Studies

  • 30a Avenue Road 13

    “This property was sold under our new model – here is what our client had to say.” We listed our property with Restate Ltd in July 2014. The reason we decided to list with them is because of their new approach to the selling process, which we considered to be fair for both parties. All aspects of the sale process were clearly explained, we were involved every step of the way, and had the say in exactly how each process was to be implemented. Our property had two offers within two days of being on the market, and went unconditional a couple of weeks later. With this new approach to the selling process, we saved over $6,000!! We could not have asked for more when it came to being kept up to date throughout the process and would not hesitate to list with them again.”

    “We engaged the services of Restate Ltd. to handle the sale of our rental property. We were given a comprehensive explanation of their New Marketing Plan which we agreed to, and entered in to a contract to market the house. Within a few days the house was advertised; an open home took place and ultimately the property was sold in a matter of a couple of weeks. Restate Ltd New Marketing Plan certainly worked for us and also saved us a considerable sum of money. We would recommend Restate Ltd and their new marketing plan to anyone proposing to sell a property. Prompt and efficient service is always a bonus.”

    “We like the new cost stucture, that of, real estate consultants. You’re into save alot of money, especially if you sell quickly or your house is in the upper price bracket, and it makes sense. Our house was a moderately priced house and took almost 8 weeks to sell, but we still saved $1900.00, that is new appliance! Liz was also great in general, very friendly & approachable, very hard working, we felt she was totally committed and had our best interest in mind. Thanks Liz!!!”

    “We engaged Restate Limited to help sell my mothers property. With a somewhat tight timeframe and realistic price expectations we could see the benefit in their innovative new real estate model. Ultimately this saved us over $4,000 compared to the traditional model. We felt their team were at all times focussed on my mothers best interests”

    “Restate Ltd made our house sale process simple and to be honest quite painless, they helped us achieve a quick sale with maximum return on the property which is not an easy thing to do. With their new fee structure they were also able to save us money in real-estate fees. Carl and his team were a delight to deal with from start to Finish. I would highly recommend their service and use them again in the future.”

    “WOW what can we say, Carl, Liz and especially Adam you are all amazing. After living in our home for 38 years we were absolutely dreading having to put it on the market and put it off as long as possible. We got Carl around to explain his new model of selling and liked what we heard. From then on it was all plain sailing, the very talented Richard Brown took some amazing photos for us, the sign went up and within 6 days we had 3 offers, 2 of them well over asking price. During the whole process Restate were really mindful of not disrupting our lives too much, they always gave us a lot of notice when someone was coming through and the whole process was exceptionally painless. We cannot thank the team at Restate enough for their Professionalism at all times and are even more grateful for the $5200 that they saved us in Real Estate fees.
    If you are thinking of selling please please do yourselves a favour, think outside the square, give Carl a call and listen to what he has to say, we are sure you will not be disappointed.”

    “We engaged Restate Ltd to sell our rental property following previous experience as a buyer with Carl Slade as the agent. Right from the beginning when listing our rental property we were put at ease with the process with a complete & comprehensive explanation of the new marketing plan & model by Restate Ltd’s professional consultant. Within a few days photos were taken, the house was advertised, & on the website, & there was an open home. We found our agent Liz to be completely professional, communicative & friendly & at all times working hard for the most favourable outcome. Liz kept us informed of all progress along the way & within a coupe of weeks we had a signed contract which quickly went unconditional. We are very happy to have sold so quickly – thank you Liz!! Thanks to Carl & Liz we received fantastic service with a great result. We would have no hesitation in engaging Restate Ltd for any future property transactions and highly recommend their new marketing plan & model.”

    “Having sold our business in Timaru, the plan was to move closer to family. We considered our options of selling our home & were impressed by Restates advertising. With a visit to the Restate office wanting an explanation of there procedures for selling our home. Firstly we were welcomed by friendly staff & secondly Adam clearly explained the process of selling our home using the Restate system. Not being in any hurry to sell the decision was to market the home quietly to start with. Our home didn’t take long to sell & Adam kept us clearly informed along the way. We felt very comfortable working with Adam who made selling our home a simple, stress free experience.We would recommend the Restate System to anyone considering selling there property.”
