Latest Sales Include....
Congratulations to all those parents out there who have just survived another winter school holiday. I am sure the rest of you will appreciate what a difficult time this can be. We were fortunate enough to have some time away in a warmer climate, although it seemed like half of NZ had the same idea. I also understand that some of our readers have been enjoying time on the snow, I am envious, maybe next winter. You will all no doubt be feeling the days getting longer if not terribly warmer just yet. It certainly feels like we are on the downhill run into summer, let’s hope for a good one!
More of the same, yet slightly different? Prices remain under upwards pressure, although we did see a slight drop(1%) in the average sales price in June. This was still up by 12% on June ‘12. More significant for the market outlook is the continued reduction in stock numbers, with listing numbers down again and net migration continuing to increase. So less market supply and seemingly increasing demand. Of course these market pressures have been well recognised by the RBNZ and Government, with the former set to introduce a scheme to restrict low equity borrowing and the latter trying to address the supply problem. The low equity borrowing restrictions will likely be a short term issue, with non-bank lending, parental assistance and other schemes already available to bridge the gap (if you want to know more please contact me). The Government's attempts to increase supply look likely to take years to have any real effect. So the reality is that there is unlikely to be a better time to buy or sell than right now, with interest rates low and demand outstripping supply. If you don’t own right now, then get in soon, if you do own then talk to us about buying an additional property.

A message from some of my clients.....
“When our son needed to sell his home, we chose to use Grayson, and Mike Pero Real Estate. Grayson proved to be very professional in his approach to the sale. He was informative, familiar with the market and provided us with excellent advice in regard the method, and timing of the sale. There was a lot of interest in the property, and the net result for us was a prompt sale, and at a price we were happy with." B & P Thomas
