Ray White North Shore members met last week for an introduction course titled Who wants to be an auctioneer?
North Shore Zone Chairman Richard Mason delivered a well-researched and interesting training session on the history of auctions through to what is required to become an auctioneer in today’s real estate market. – The group engaged in lively discussion and debate and have now committed to monthly meetings as the new ‘North Shore Auction Group’ to continue and develop their learning in this important area.
Auctions certainly continue to be a favoured method of sale in the real estate industry as both an effective and efficient method of sale, and Ray White has a long history in the real estate auction market. Ray White presently conducts more auctions than any other real estate company in Australia and pioneered in-room auctions – conducted by industry-leading auctioneers and backed by quality property presentations.
According to Real Estate Institute of New Zealand data, and as quoted by Interest.co.nz, a total of 15,865 properties were sold by auction in the last 12 months – representing over 1 in 5 of all New Zealand property sales. – In Auckland the numbers are far higher with over that same period 38% of all sales being by auction. Ray White‘s international research shows that well-marketed auction properties tend to attract more genuine buyers and sell 30 over cent faster than those sold by private treaty.
Richard Mason was delighted to hear that the session inspired several attendees to take the next step to attend a Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s Auctioneer course in July with premier real estate coach, John Abbott, who has now trained over 20,000 salespeople in all facets of the real estate profession. Collectively these North Shore members are seeking to achieve greater aspirations by forming a tight team of Ray White North Shore auctioneers.
