Profile & Sales information

How do I edit my profile information on homes.co.nz and Trade Me Property?

Simply login to your account on OneHub. Any changes you make on Onehub will update your profile on homes.co.nz and Trade Me Property.

Why should I claim my sales?

Homeowners who are looking to sell use sales data across homes.co.nz and Trade Me Property to figure out what their own property might be worth. If you haven’t claimed a sale then you are missing an opportunity to build trust with homeowners as the agent who sold that property. This also means you could be less likely to receive an appraisal request.

How do I manage my claimed sales on homes.co.nz and Trade Me?

  • Your sales will appear automatically on Trade Me and homes.co.nz once your listing has been withdrawn with the reason set to ‘sold’.
  • Sale prices will be hidden to the public by default until we receive council data to confirm the price.
  • If we aren’t displaying one of your sales on Trade Me or homes.co.nz you can manually claim the sale in OneHub.
  • If you wish to hide or change the sale price of any property on Trade Me you can do so in OneHub.
  • The above process is the same regardless if you sold the property alone or with another agent.

Are there any sales that can’t be claimed?

On homes.co.nz you can claim properties categorised as residential/lifestyle in the council's rating database excluding:

  • Sales registered by Stratford City Council.
  • Newly built properties or properties “Off the plan” that have not yet been created as a separate rateable unit.

  • Company-owned apartments where there is no separate property title.

Sales are captured by homes.co.nz and Trade Me Property as far back as possible but the exact dates differ by council.

Who is eligible to claim sales?

As a Premium Agent you can claim all of your sales providing you were either:

  • The listing agent on the listing agreement for the property
  • The selling agent on the listing agencies transaction report for the property
