Realestate private property sales

DIY Real Estate have been New Zealand private sale real estate specialists since 1999 and provide:

Why sell your property through a real estate agent when selling privately is a viable choice. Selling your own home or property privately not only saves real estate commission fees but people choosing the homesell FSBO option (For Sale By Owner) means you are in control of the process - and it's not hard.

The sale was confirmed a few days after our deadline. The process was good and we used the DIY Real Estate signage and brochures. They worked really well... Chris Bridgman, Christchurch


When it comes to selling real estate privately in NZ there are three distinct groups:

  1. Those who haven't previously considered a private sale and need more information
  2. Those who are selling privately but aren't necessarily maximising their chances of success
  3. Those who would like to give it a go but aren't too sure about how to go about it

Don't just ring a real estate agent - sell your own property. Read more about why you should be selling your house privately in New Zealand and consider buying the book 'Selling a Home Privately in New Zealand' by Garry Bond.

REAL ESTATE SIGNAGE - Signs, Brochures and Products

Realestate signs including real estate open home signs

Realestate signage is very important and many properties sales eventuate from people simply driving past and seeing a for sale sign. Signs reflect your professional attitude and present a good image. Ultimately potential buyers should not even be able to tell you are selling your house privately.

DIY Real Estate is able to supply cost effective real estate signs and sales aids including For Sale signs, Open Home signs and Sign Stands, Brochures and Brochure Holders.

I would like to thank you for your fantastic products, great communication, very fast delivery plus awesome friendly service... Sue Wells, Rotorua
