The median sale price rollercoaster

2019 real estate figures

Hi folks,

These are my final musings for 2019 so I thought a brief recap of the year in real estate for Upper Hutt would be quite timely. At the time of writing this, the November sales haven’t been released so I’ve only got January to October to comment on.

There's an election on and it's winter. But it's still not a bad market.

Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I’ve looked at the real estate sales in Upper Hutt so I feel we are well overdue to see what’s actually going on out there. I’m finding it frustrating, when reading numerous media outlets, to see that most market comment is again Auckland predominant. What’s happening there is similar to what’s happening around other parts of the country but the doom and gloom being perpetuated there is not what will continue to happen elsewhere.

Will 2016's political upheaval affect Upper Hutt?

Hi folks,

So here we are in 2017 talking about property and all I can say so far is “same stuff, different year!” In the 1st week back after the holidays the phone has been ringing off the hook, although I have to say that this is the norm every year not just in busy markets like this.

The Upper Hutt market is picking up!

Hi folks,

It’s brilliant to (finally) write that the Upper Hutt property market is picking up and is currently moving at a very good pace, particularly in the under $600,000 price range where the majority of Upper Hutt properties sit. It is especially great to say this in Winter, a traditionally quieter time of the year to sell.

Keep up to date with Real Estate market conditions!

Hi folks,

It’s fair to say that I consider myself very knowledgeable about the Upper Hutt residential market place and one thing I have learned is that most people who have just bought or sold a property know a lot about their market in their area are as well. They have gained this knowledge over weeks and months of looking at properties to buy or preparing themselves to sell. So how can they keep this market knowledge current so that they always know market trends and price movements?

First time buyers: help is on its way

Hi folks,

It seems quite some time since I last wrote about the Upper Hutt residential market but as the most recent sales statistics are now out, it seems appropriate to look at them and see what’s happening in our fair city. The good news is that with April sales concluded we can see that the market is faring better than 2014. From January 1st to April 30th there were 30 sales more than the previous year, as good as this is, it is still 61 sales down on 2013, obviously the Loan Value Restrictions are still having an impact on our market.
