We have all observed the growth in Wanaka and now that the Census shows that the Queenstown Lakes has grown by 38.7% since the last census in 2013, the 'usually resident' population in our region now sits at 13,041, up from 9036 in 2013. The number of occupied dwellings in Wanaka has grown from 2721 in 2013 to 3675 in 2018.
So, while our district ontinues to grow both economically and in population, our community is seeing a lot of new commercial and residential developments.
Low interest rates and legislation changes are giving buyers hope that the property market may be softening and we expect to see a strong buying period over the coming months. If you’re looking to step onto the property ladder or upgrade your residence, then make contact with us directly to discuss your needs and we will endeavour to match you with a suitable selection homes across all price points. And if you already own a property then take advantage of other peoples money to grow your portfolio. Currently interest rates are the lowest they have been since World War II and while paying down your home loan may sound great, talking to a bank or broker about the possibility of buying multiple properties and have your tenants pay oﬀ the loans may prove better in the long term
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 unlock the financial potential in your property!
