Wise Up NZ is an independent advice and information hub for home buyers, sellers, downsizers, investors, DIYers, renovators and developers.
Awarded Most Reputable Property Advice Hub - New Zealand in 2020
Wise Up® NZ is the only New Zealand property hub that centralises multi-agency information from reputable sources such as the government and property industry related organisations. Our purpose is to address the current fragmentation of the property industry which makes it almost impossible to be properly informed about crucial decisions for whatever stage you are at on your property journey.
We have 13 years of service, insights, research, initiatives and relationships with property-related organisations that enable us to keep you properly informed. You can view some of our Guest Articles here.
Wise Up NZ ranks organically on page one of Google searches for many topics
Whether you're looking for advice about real estate commission and fees, legal or tax advice, valuations, building inspections, downsizing to a retirement village or home, or information about DIY rules and regulations - whatever you need you'll find it here - including this handy process of buying and selling a house flowchart. We also have a range of checklists for various aspects of the real estate process.
Decisions around real estate can be life-changing for the worse when made without the right information.
