    Am important issue with respect to the Wellington analysis (and other City/Rural “Markets”) is that unless it has been massaged from the REINZ original data it is not a single market. Smaller regional areas such as Wairarapa and Otaki/Levin are included in this data. Removing those areas – which is relatively easy with the REINZ, shows a different scenario, although I have not seen a “Inventory of property for sale” detail of Wellington. A similar situation occurs in Canterbury/Christchurch and Waikato/Hamilton.
    Any chance could separate the property for sale stats by city vs rural?

    Thanks for this comment. I agree with you that it would be better to just show the principle city of Wellington as the regional data extends through from the Hutt Valley to the Kapiti Coast. The Wairarapa data is not included.

    I see that it would be useful to breakout the major metro areas and this is certainly something we can do. At this stage we are creating these reports to mirror the 19 major regions we present on the website.
