Sales Statistics for Selected Major Cities June 2015 Compared with 2016 –

Auckland, Tauranga and Hamilton House Sale down in June 2016

Has the wave moved beyond the Golden Triangle into the lower north and south islands.  Well simple put yes!!!

So in AK, Tauranga & the Tron sale numbers are down.  Just a touch in AK but significantly in Hamilton and Tauranga. This against a back drop of increased listings in Hamilton at least.

So maybe the efforts to get more stock into the market place is starting to have an effect. Which ever way you look at it, it seems that the market has peaked and rash policy from the reserve bank and or government is not needed

Hamilton Residential Sales Statistics Comparisons for August 2015

Hamilton Residential Sales Statistics Comparisons for August 2015

Hamilton – Value has been discovered

Some sales people and agents are talking the Hamilton Market up and even talking of a boom.

The best August on record for real estate sales was August 2005 at 424 sales and yes with this months result of 407 sales you might at a casual view think we are almost back to that level and as such must be booming.  But what has they forgotten? – just 10 years – during which time an average of 800 consent were issued per annum.  So that tells us Hamilton is 8000 home richer than 2005.

At present Hamilton has around 55,000 homes of various types.  So while 407 is a good result it is nothing like the 424 sales of 2005 – to equal that record we would need to get to 500 sales per month.

Have We Been ‘Dogged’?

Have We Been ‘Dogged’?

Are The Public Rogues?

Scenario – Lovely freehold property in a West Coast beach town. Lots of less popular leasehold property also in this town.

Hard working salesperson who travels to this quiet town (there’s no in town sales agency – it’s too small), a distance of 100kms or so. The Salesperson works all week in Hamilton, then sells in our town on the weekends.

He lists a nice freehold property, then puts up a sign, puts a flyer advertising the property in his display board in the main street of our quiet township, puts it on the internet. Fast forward 1 – 3 weeks and after showing the property to a prospect, talks to the neighbour – they have seen the sign board and seen him showing the property – he tells them all about the property.

Dog Hand

Our hard working Salesperson carries on and does a great job, shows a dozen people through over the next 2-3 months, but our Vendor wants $350,000 plus, and gets an offer at $308,000, which the Salesperson feels he could get up into the $330,000’s, but the determined Vendor signs back at $350,000 plus, our Buyer walks.  More time goes by and our Salesperson gets told the Vendor wants to withdraw and now keep the property – no problem.

Fast forward a few weeks and what do we see – works happening at the property – what might you think?

Yes, I know and yes you are right.

Sold to the neighbour.

Sad Dog

Why – neighbour wanted to get away from their leasehold title and loving the little township wanted a Freehold property.

How did this happen? Neighbour saw the For Sale sign and spoke with the Salesperson, the sign effected notice to the neighbour of property for sale. Then went around the back door and purchased direct from the Vendor. You know the kicker though – is that the sale is at $315,000 and remember the Salesperson had an offer months before which could have been done at $330,000ish. Let’s say $330,000 – commission would have been $15,000 and a sale of the empty house much earlier, giving the Vendor his $315,000.

Now the Vendor – an older gentleman with health deteriorating, has a great rapport with our Salesperson, but the withdrawal finally comes from his smarter son who by this time is looking after dads affairs.

So, the son lies to the Salesperson when he just wants to withdraw the property, when he knows he has sold to the neighbour. Dad, who has been honest and true all his life now has to live his last years knowing he has ‘dogged’ the Salesperson.

Dog no Bone

All this just to get the same money the Salesperson could have had for them months earlier.

What are your thoughts??….
