Payment Info

How does the $12,500 +GST flat fee work?

At Arizto, we value fairness and full transparency, which is why we charge a flat fee to sell your home. Here’s what you can expect -

After your free appraisal has been conducted and you’ve decided to sell with us, you will sign the Agency Agreement which will legally allow us to get starting on preparing the marketing campaign. Included for free is professional photography, videography and copywriting; Certificate of Title, Rental Appraisal and Floor Plans; marketing across TradeMe, Realestate.co.nz and Facebook; plus a signboard installed outside your property.

You’ll be teamed with the same licensed Arizto real-estate agent who conducted your appraisal and specialises in your area, and they will work with you across the whole selling process to conduct viewings and manage negotiations to take you from listing to SOLD. You’ll also get access to your own personal dashboard where you can receive feedback, view offers and get up to the minute information about how your listing is tracking.

The final commission fee of $12,500 + GST is deducted from the buyers’ deposit after the unconditional date, meaning that, aside from enjoying the money you save on traditional commission fees, you won’t have to do a thing!

Are there any other fees involved if I sell my house with Arizto?

If you decide to run an auction, to cover auctioneer fees, Arizto will charge an additional $800 at the time of listing, this fee is non-refundable even if you cancel the Auction prior to the Auction date.

In terms of other fees, at the time of sale you will need your own lawyer to process the legal conveyancing and title transaction. Lawyers fees can vary, so we recommend you contact them for an accurate quote.

What happens if my house sells for more or less than expected? Do you have a different fee structure?

Regardless of what your home sells for, even if it’s tens of thousands over what was expected, we always charge a set fee of $12,500 + GST at the completion of the sale.

If I sell more than one property, do I get a discount?

No, $12,500 + GST is a fixed fee, regardless of how quickly your home sells. With our streamlined business structure, it is our aim to list homes with efficiency. Part of the reason we can afford to run at a fixed rate is because we put the same effort into every listing and treat each with the same amount of value, so if your home sells quickly, we are doing everything right!

If my property sells in a short amount of time, will I have to pay less?

No, $12,500 + GST is a fixed fee, regardless of how quickly your home sells. With our streamlined business structure, it is our aim to list homes with efficiency. Part of the reason we can afford to run at a fixed rate is because we put the same effort into every listing and treat each with the same amount of value, so if your home sells quickly, we are doing everything right!

Where does the $12,500 + GST come from to pay the commission? Will I have to transfer this directly to you?

Here’s some good news - regarding the commission fee - you don’t have to do a thing! Upon the unconditional date, the buyer will pay their deposit to your Solicitor's Trust Account. Once received, we will invoice your solicitor for the $12,500 + GST commission. The remainder of the deposit will then be released to you.

$12,500 + GST seems low!! There must be hidden costs?

$12,500 + GST is a good price - but we think it’s a fair one. We’ve set up our business by using clever innovations and leveraging technology to reduce overheads and streamline our processes, meaning there are no hidden costs when you sell your home with Arizto. Aside from optional upgrades (for example, it will cost you another $800 if you decide to hold an auction), you will never get any nasty financial surprises from us.

The Selling Process

Yes, on a case by case basis

Yes, on a case by case basis

Do you advertise on the same platforms as traditional agencies?

We do! We advertise with Trademe, realestate.co.nz, oneroof.co.nz, homes.co.nz, hougarden.com and right here on the Arizto website. We also utilise the power of social media, and leverage targeting capabilities to get your home in front of thousands of potential buyers on NZ’s largest open buyer databases.

How long will you market my property for?

There is no set end date for our services. We will continue to market and advertise your property for as long as it takes to sell, or until you decide to withdraw your listing. In rare circumstances, if we have been marketing for a long period of time and the buyer market does not see value in your property at the price you require, we will advise you that we cannot sell the property at the level of your expectations and will advise that it would be best to cease marketing.

What happens if my house doesn’t sell?

If you decide to withdraw your listing, you won’t be required to pay the commission fee of $12,500 + GST or any other fees for that matter. The good news is that all the marketing assets will become yours to keep and re-use as you please!

How long will my house take to sell?

Although there are many varying factors in the property industry, and we can’t determine exactly how long it will take to sell your home, on average across New Zealand a house takes 6 weeks to sell. Sometimes, a house can sell within a few days, other times it takes a few months, and sometimes, if the property is on the market for too long, it can lose its appeal and become ‘stale’, which can affect the final sale value. A home that is beautifully presented, marketed correctly and priced fairly will typically sell within a 4 week timeframe and most likely achieve a premium price, which is why we strategically market Arizto properties keeping this knowledge in mind.

Does Arizto manage rentals or find tenants?

No, that is not a service that we currently offer. If we move into this space, we will let you know via email or our Facebook page.

Will you run open-homes?

Yes, we will! These will be organised by your agent on dates and at times that suit you.

Does Arizto have a buyer database?

Arizto has the country’s largest open buyer database; we do not rely on individuals alone to bring buyers to the property. Unlike other agencies, our listing agents have access to the full database to ensure no opportunity is missed.

Do you run Auctions? How much extra do they cost?

Yes, we do run auctions! If you decide to auction your property, we will charge you an extra $800 at time of listing to cover the Auctioneers Fee, this is a non refundable fee even if the Auction is cancelled prior to the Auction date.

For a fixed fee, do you still do everything that’s required to sell a home?

Absolutely. In fact, some of our reviews suggest we do what’s required - and more!

“Really easy to deal with and great communication. The tech was good too, we had constant updates and had it all on our phone the whole time. So I don't think we missed out on anything by not using a traditional real estate agent. And if anything we actually got a better service level!”

Our business model and technological platform allows us to collate the necessary marketing collateral and get your property listed to Trademe, realestate.co.nz, the Arizto website and Facebook extremely efficiently, plus we conduct important buyer reports upfront to minimise friction at the end of a sale. Because we take the prospecting and marketing responsibilities off our agents, they are free to focus on providing a superior level of customer service that goes above and beyond. Book your free appraisal, and you’ll experience what we mean firsthand!

What happens during an appraisal?

Before you list with us, you’ll have the opportunity to book in a free, no obligation appraisal at a time and date that suits you. After you’ve confirmed your appraisal date and time, via email, you’ll receive:

A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) - a selection of recent sales in your area, which buyers in today’s market will be comparing your property to; A list of Arizto’s marketing inclusions; a list of ‘steps to sale’ - the full process from end to end when selling with us
T’s and C’s, and a list of legal obligations that you’ll need to be across if you choose to sell with us

On the day of your appraisal, our agent will view your property, answer any questions you have and, within 24 hours, send through a comprehensive and personalised appraisal for your property. From there, if you decide to list with Arizto, we can sign the Agency Agreement electronically and get underway with preparation of the marketing!

Are we locked into a sole agency contract?

We don’t believe in locking you in, so all of our contracts are open/general agencies.

Our Company and Technology

Arizto runs at a lower rate than traditional agencies - is Arizto a discount company?

While we do offer a fixed rate service, we are by no means a discount company. We have worked hard to build a business and platform that is streamlined and efficient, and have leveraged technology so we can list homes at a consistently high quality standard. Because we built our business and platform with scale in mind, we are able to pass the long term savings onto you, the vendor, in the form of our fixed fee.

We have an in-house team of full-time staff who manage reporting, marketing and customer support so we can collate listing materials and get homes listed quickly and professionally. Our agents work from a bespoke Arizto native mobile app, meaning they are able to work from anywhere that has an internet connection, which reduces overheads and physical resources. As a vendor, you will have access to a personal online dashboard, which will give you real-time updates in regards viewing times, buyer feedback, offers and more, so you are in the know every step of the way. Plus, we utilise electronic signatures to further reduce overheads and do our bit toward a more sustainable future.

To reiterate, although we run at a lower-than-average fee, we are in no way a discount company!

How is Arizto different to other agencies that offer a flat fee rate?

While comparisons may be drawn between Arizto and other flat fee agencies, our business model is very different. Through a number of innovations, we’ve worked hard to develop a system that leverages technology, and an internal structure that reduces overheads, so that, despite our lower cost offering, we are able to scale and remain profitable.

For a quick overview, our bespoke native app enables our agents to work efficiently across the country from any location with an internet connection, and we can operate the entire company from a single office in Auckland. We also have a range of in-house specialists to cover photography, marketing, video, copywriting, customer support, meth testing, reports, documentation and more, allowing for a much more efficient process. Our business model sees each agent allocated to postcodes meaning prospective leads come to them, which reduces their traditional workload by about 80% and allows them to sell homes more efficiently. They can enjoy a competitive income, our business can afford to run at a lower cost, and YOU reap the benefits of our innovations in the form of our fixed fee!

What makes Arizto a sustainable company?

At Arizto, we want to take responsibility, and do our bit toward a more sustainable future. We have taken away a lot of the need for physical resources, and built our platform in such a way that we are able to collate, store and manage all marketing materials, reporting and documentation on a CMS, or content management system, which is where our in-house team of marketers, support and reporting staff work from. Similarly, our agents work off a native agent app, and all documents are able to be signed using an electronic signature. We are leading the way for sustainability in real-estate, and we hope other companies will follow!

Is Arizto a New Zealand owned company?

Yes, Arizto is 100% New-Zealand owned and operated! Our support office is based in East Tamaki, Auckland.

I am not tech-savvy - can I still use the Arizto service?

Absolutely! We’ve worked hard behind the scenes to produce a simple, straightforward and easy to use online dashboard for vendors. It is designed to receive up to the minute information about your listing, including open-home times, buyer feedback and offers, and acts as a means for you to track the whole process in real time - but you don’t need to use it in order to sell your home, as our agents will keep you across absolutely everything! You can still go through the full Arizto process without touching a computer.

Our Agents and Locations

I’m concerned.. They work for a lower rate, so does Arizto hire only entry level agents with no real-estate experience?

We understand the importance of having a great team on the ground, so at Arizto we only hire trusted agents with proven track records who, on average, have had 7 years experience. It’s our business model that attracts talented agents to our team. Unlike traditional agencies, our agents don’t have to prospect for new leads, which typically takes up about 80% of an agent's time, nor do they have to organise the marketing of each home. This means they are free to focus exclusively on selling a home efficiently and effectively, and as a result are able to turn over a higher volume of sales to make a competitive income.

As a vendor, you’ll be given the opportunity to rate and review the level of service you received, with final sale price being a factor in the rating you give. Our agents want to obtain a fantastic price for each home for their own long term growth, and because, as a requirement, they are passionate about providing the highest level of service!

How do I know you will get the most for my property when your agents are not being paid a percentage of the total sale value?

Arizto only works with experienced, licensed agents who provide a high level of customer service. Our agents are still incentivised by a success fee at the completion of a sale, and although they may not receive as much as traditional real-estate agents, our streamlined, efficient business model allows them to provide a higher level of customer service for each client they serve. Rather than having to spend time and energy on prospecting, marketing, reporting and listing, these tasks are managed, collated and created to a consistently high standard by a in-house team, which means, as well as quality service, our agents are free to focus exclusively on doing what they do best - selling your home!.

Are all agents licensed?

Yes, as a requirement, all Arizto agents must be licensed by the REA.

How are Arizto agents assigned?

Agents are assigned to properties based on location (organised by postcode). This ensures that your agent will have a thorough knowledge of your area.

How many agents does Arizto employ?

Currently, Arizto employs over 125 agents. We will be looking to hire more agents as we continue to expand.

That doesn’t seem like that many - will they be able to handle the workload?

Due to our incredibly streamlined business model, because our agents don’t have to prospect for new listings or organise marketing, they are able to handle 4 times as many listings as a traditional agent at any one time. By taking prospecting and marketing tasks off their hands and bringing them in-house, our agents are able to focus primarily on selling homes and providing the highest level of customer service, meaning they are only becoming more effective every single day!

Where does Arizto currently sell homes?

Currently, Arizto lists and sells homes in right across the country. From the far north to the bottom of the south! We will continue to move into other areas as demand grows!

Do agents get any more for running open homes?

No – all of our agents will run open homes on your behalf at no additional cost.

How is the process made more efficient for agents?

We have worked with a team of experienced agents to develop bespoke technology innovations which streamline traditional tasks to make Arizto’s process more efficient.

Each one of our agents have their own personal native app where they store information about appraisals, current listings and sold properties, meaning they don’t need to work from or report to specific offices. Our business model sees reporting, marketing and listing tasks brough in-house, and all of this collateral is managed on a content management system (CMS), which allows our agents to stay across all information without having to organise or manage it. We have also built an online dashboard for vendors, which allows you to receive up to the minute updates about all important info, so you don’t have to chase or feel out of the loop.

From appraisal to sale, this technology, used exclusively by Arizto, effectively streamlines the entire real-estate process. With the number of responsibilities greatly reduced, and because all information is centralised and accessible, our agents are free to focus on what they are good at - which is selling your home!

Why doesn’t Arizto advertise in the paper?

Research shows that most buyers are now searching for homes online. With our innovative technology, clever targeting and marketing initiatives, we are able to reach thousands more potential buyers in the places where they are looking for homes, meaning your home gets more exposure, more views - and, ideally, more interested parties.

Your targeted Facebook marketing campaign will run for up to four weeks. Your property will remain listed on TradeMe, realestate.co.nz, homes.co.nz, hougarden.com, oneroof.co.nz, and the Arizto website until SOLD.

How is Arizto marketing different to other real-estate companies?

We take pride in our business and in our marketing. We provide a fully comprehensive, all inclusive professional marketing package for every home we list, all provided at no cost to our sellers. By treating every listing with the same amount of respect, and by showcasing your home in the best possible light, we are able to maintain consistency, efficiency and quality when marketing Arizto homes.

What makes Arizto different from other real-estate companies is that we employ a full-time in-house marketing team, who are constantly innovating to ensure our properties stand out. Arizto marketing is forward thinking, and, signboards aside, we market and promote exclusively on the platforms online where the vast majority of buyers are. Part of our strategy is to promote heavily across Facebook and social media, as we are able to deliberately target people in the right areas to get your home in front of the most potential buyers possible. Our team remains agile to ensure that we are across updates, feedback and new ideas to give your home the best chance of being sold!
