The internet is increasingly dominating the New Zealand real estate marketplace.
A new generation of internet-enabled buyers are searching the web for suitable properties and they are also using the internet as a tool to do due diligence on the houses they are interested in buying.
New Zealand house sales are now driven by the younger, first home buyer, well-educated who combine good earning power with business savvy.
“Young buyers understand that it really is a good investment for the buyer to spend an extra $500 on a fee for a home inspection in order to be sure that a first home ownership “dream” house is not a potential ‘money-pit’.
“Most of SavvyHouz clients find us on the internet. In fact the business process of quoting, collection of fees and delivery of the report is all internet based at SavvyHouz.” Dean says SavvyHouz uses internet technology in order to hold its fees at reasonable levels.
Dean adds, "We deliver pre-purchase house inspection reports of a consistently high standard to our clients within one working day of the inspection. “It is interesting that mostly we never meet our clients face-to-face and yet we receive regular praise for our very high level of efficiency and personalised friendly service.”
Dean says that the internet is the real estate marketplace of the future. This is where today’s buyers are most comfortable.
