Hamilton Residential Property Report

Snap shot of what has been happening in the marketplace over the past month. The median price across the Waikato region rose 12% compared to December 2016. Prices rose 26% in Hauraki and 21% in South Waikato. Compared to November 2017 the median price dec17-2 increased 7%.
Compared to November, sales volumes fell 11%. Compared to December 2016, sales across the region fell 8% with sales falling sharply in Thames-Coromandel, Hauraki, Waitomo and South Waikato (-36%, -35%, -33% and -32% respectively).

The median number of days to sell improved by one day compared to November, from 37 days in November to 36 days in December. The median number of days to sell eased by six days compared to December 2016. Over the past 10 years the median number of days to sell during December for Waikato has been 42 days on average.

“The Waikato region still had a very busy, active market, other than a couple of quiet weeks over Christmas, and we anticipate the market will pick up in January. First home buyers are still very active here. It’s an easy market to buy in, with affordable prices. The number of first time buyers is up on the same time last year – something we expect is attributable to the changes announced to the LVRs, with people becoming active in anticipation of the changes in the new year. While first home buyers are not usually cash buyers they are very active, so we are getting quite a few offers that are conditional on the usual LIM and Finance and Builders reports, but we’re also seeing offers conditional on methamphetamine tests, showcasing the caution these buyers are exercising.” Philip Searle REINZ Regional Director.

sales increasing 66% in Waikato District and 61% in Hauraki. Compared to November 2016, sales across the region fell 15% with sales falling in Otorohanga and Hamilton City (-25% and -23%).

The median number of days to sell eased by three days compared to November 2016. Over the past 10 years the average number of days to sell during November for Waikato has been 43 days.

“The Waikato market remains steady and consistent, although over the last few weeks

 we’ve seen the usual summer rush in order to attract viewings from out of town visitors over the summer holiday period. There are still not enough listings at the lower end of the market for first time buyers and there is a lack of suitably priced homes, as we’re still seeing a number of vendors anticipating higher prices from Auckland buyers. Over the next few months, the relaxing of the LVR rules should help the investor market increase slightly and restore a little more confidence to the market.” Philip Searle, REINZ Regional Director.
