Many of my regular readers follow my blog because they are interested in the articles I write relating to the process of buying or selling business in New Zealand. I am aware that a proportion of these readers are domiciled outside of New Zealand and are planning, however tentatively, to one day return to, or emigrate to New Zealand.
The chances are strong that the readers that do eventually immigrate to New Zealand will be, apart from purchasing a business to provide them with income, looking for a home to buy.
Realestate.co.nz, an industry owned website, provides a free access platform on which New Zealand Real Estate salespeople or agents can have individual blogs and engage directly with their audience online. The site, Voices, has some of the best New Zealand real estate blogs which are contributed to by salespeople from the length and breadth of New Zealand.
Articles on all manner of real estate related topics are provided giving an interesting and accurate insight to the current state of the New Zealand real estate market as seen directly from the coal face; that is, by those Real Estate professionals who work untiringly with buyers and sellers of property no matter what the state of the market.
I particularly recommend you have a look at Ross Brader’s blog written from the view point of an agent working in Point Chevalier, Auckland and Deon Swiggs New Plymouth blog, both Ross and Deon are regular contributors. A third real estate related blog to check out is Unconditional which is written by Alister Helm. Alister is the CEO of Realestate.co.nz, and along with his colleagues is a great supporter of real estate salespeople starting their own blogs. Because of their support there are at present around 50 salespeople using the Voices platform.
One of the most convenient functions of Blogs is that once you find one that interests you, you can subscribe to it using the RSS function. This way, as soon as the Blog is updated you will know through your ‘feeds’ button, which (if you use internet explorer) is located alongside the ‘favorites’ button. What could be simpler?
