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.

October – Market Overview

Sales for the month was down to 278 compared to September’s 306, but new listings increased to 780 to give buyers more choice. Days on the market increased to 32, but new buyers are entering the market and this reflects the record high median price of $518K.

It is a great time to sell, but prospective vendors should be aware of the increased competition. Marketing exposure and well presented properties still achieve top dollar!
