Real Estate market update…

April saw a 39% drop to 240 residential sales and days to sell increasing to 35 – up from 31 days in March. The median sale price was slightly down to $535K from $540,750 in March, but available properties for sale was still in the high seven hundreds.

Vendors generally prefer to list in the warmer months and less choice during the colder months tend to put pressure on prices. Buyers enter the market constantly – they invest in real estate and are not seasonal driven, but rather by limited choice.

Should you have a move in mind in the near future, it may well be an opportunity to list now. Why wait for increased competition when your property can be in high demand right now?

Contact Linda on 022 64 50588 for a FREE APPRAISAL and a property chat that could get you moving sooner rather than later.

New to New Zealand – putting their roots down … in The Sanctuary!

Starting out in a new country can be a daunting experience. The new owners are thrilled with their new home and the opportunities it give them to meet new neighbours. The kids have made friends in a child-friendly, gated community and it spills over to their new school across the road. How good is that?

We wish them many happy years in their new country – and now in their new home! They will love to explore the neighbourhood and the many walks in the area – not to mention a choice of playgrounds available to the kids to enjoy….

Making a move…. literally….

Vendors usually move on to a new home due to changing circumstances. A growing family with a need for more space, empty nesters scaling down or youngsters starting out with their first homes – all anticipate the big move!

It is not that often that the old house is moved along as well – literally. I could not resist to snap this one… on the move on a massive truck and the driver waiting to get the wheels rolling to get it to its new address.


Anything is possible! Should you have a section and want an instant home, you might be in luck too.

You’re welcome to contact Linda on 022 64 50588  for a                                             FREE, NO OBLIGATION APPRAISAL                                                                            should you consider a real estate move in the near future.
