Winter is here! Plenty of snow on the mountains against the brilliant blue sky makes for a sensational backdrop - Wanaka is the place to be!
2017/18 was a busy year for changes in the New Zealand property market. New LVR restrictions, stricter bank lending criteria, election uncertainty and new government policies all contributed to a national overall drop in sales volume and slow down in growth value. Meanwhile, in the Wanaka region, a lift in sales volumes and healthy auction clearance rates towards the end of 2017 signalled a positive market, particularly with an increase volume of buyers from the North Island now turning their sights to secure Wanaka property.
On a more personal note, our recent awards for 2018 as the Number Three agent in the South Island places us in the Top 30 Harcourts agents across New Zealand. We are really rapt that our team's hard efforts in achieving great results for our clients has been recognised on a national level and our continued performance as the top Harcourts agents Wanaka give us the professional confidence to guide you through your property needs, whether it be buying or selling. We would especially like to say a huge thank-you to all our past and present clients for their continued support of the service we provide.
As we continue to see very frustrated buyers at the shortage of existing homes and sections in the Wanaka area, we encourage anyone planning to sell a property to discuss with us where your investment may be positioned in the market. We can also provide a free & informative report on specific properties, so please contact us today and have a chat about how we can help you achieve a great result!
