Selling your home doesn’t have to be complicated. At YouSell, we help you discover the joy of selling your property – your way – through professional guidance, first-class marketing and unparallel support.

A lot of Kiwis come to us because they’re curious about selling their home privately, but don’t know where to start or feel anxious about taking on the job themselves. We understand those first-time jitters, and our team is here to help!

Think back to the first time you drove a car. You were probably equal parts excited and nervous as you sat in the driver’s seat. But you also knew the freedom being able to drive would bring you, and felt safe knowing someone who had driven many times before was there to guide you. Once you’d navigated your first journey on the road you were delighted with what you’d achieved. Selling with YouSell is a very similar kind of experience.

When you choose YouSell, you’re in the driver’s seat – and our friendly and experienced professionals are there to coach you through every part of your journey.

The feedback we receive time and time again from our clients is how much they love the process, and the huge rush and sense of accomplishment they experience when the sale of their home has been finalised.

You’ve got this. Let’s get started.

Many Kiwis would like to sell their own home, but lack confidence when it comes to getting started, or making sure they follow all legal requirements. YouSell take the guess-work out of selling privately and makes the selling process simple – giving you the confidence to get the best price for your home while saving tens of thousands on commission. We partner with the folks at TradeMe to get you preferential pricing built into our costs and packaging. This enables our team to offer a range of added benefits, including professional real estate photography, professional copywriting, and branded signage, digital brochure design and – most importantly – real guidance from our team members, seven days a week.
We’re proud to offer an affordable service, and pricing starts from just $1,395.00 for our Bronze ‘List & Launch’ package. This includes everything you’ll need to sell your home privately, like a pro. We have three packages for you to choose from, with options extras available for those wishing to make their listing really stand out from the crowd. These include drone photography, virtual tours, video walk-throughs and more. Simply select your package and any optional extras you’d like included in your plan.
YouSell works on a flat-fee and custom package basis, and we’re very transparent about our costs. These are paid up-front for your peace of mind, ensuring every cent of profit from the sale of your home is yours to keep. Selling a property valued at $750k with a mainstream agency may result in fees of approximately $28,000. By comparison, YouSell offers flat-fee packages from just $1,395.00, including GST.
Your open home will work like any other – the only difference will be that YOU’LL be the one hosting prospective buyers, showing them through, and answering any questions they have. Don’t worry – we’ll coach you on how to host an open home like an expert, and many of our clients report enjoying the open home process a great deal more than they had expected. After your open home, our team will follow up with prospective buyers for feedback or offers on your behalf.
Absolutely. The process of buying privately in New Zealand is very straight forward, and is much the same as working through an agency. Through YouSell, the seller must adhere to all legal obligations within New Zealand and follow our system for selling. This includes disclosure of information about the property. You can be confident you are well-informed, so all you need to think about is finding the perfect home for you and your family.
