We have prepared the below information to help answer some questions you may have in the current environment.
The February property data has shown that median house prices across New Zealand increased by 14.3% in February to a new record of $640,000, which is up from $560,000 in February 2019. This was the largest percentage increase in 53 months.
January continued its sleepy seasonal pattern where it seems that most of the population headed either North or South at the start of the month, returning mid-January from their family holiday. Over the holiday period, online property searches increased tenfold as holidaymakers took advantage of their downtime.
December is traditionally a month where owners looking to sell their properties are either happy or frustrated. Happy that their property sold by mid-December or frustrated that their property remained on the market over the holiday break as the buyers take their time to make real estate decisions. The median house price dipped slightly last month to $472,500 as a result of more apartment projects coming online and dropping the average.
Rising like a Phoenix from the ashes is a simile that beautifully sums up the Christchurch real estate market for the month of November.
Home owners took a cautious approach throughout October, with listing numbers remaining steady in a season where we usually see a surge in properties coming to the market. Buyers continue to be very active on the back of attractive interest rates and the return of housing market confidence. Of particular note were our full auction rooms with strong bidding activity culminating in very successful property sales.
September is a gateway month for the good people of Christchurch, a gateway to the warmer months and time to start thinking about putting away that puffer jacket you wear on the sidelines at Saturday morning sport. Frosty ground has been replaced with a catalog of colour as the garden city comes to life with new growth and vitality.
