House Sales in Huntly May 2016
What a year for this well placed and dynamic South Auckland town. Real estate sales have been very strong with peek sales of 35 houses last May. This May we see 20 house sales – this very good, but a lower number compared to 2015 this is a reflection of lower availability.
Simple put if we had more we could sell more.
What of Values? – well amazing news here in that Huntly in the last 12 months has had a 58% increase in house values. So tremendous growth with lots of demand still in the market.
So should you sell now – well with the RBNZ seeking even more dramatic methods to quieten the market, than those already taken in 2015 perhaps. If the Bank and or Government influences get there market curbing idea’s wrong – this could shock the market into a correction. We will see – but the short answer is if you own a property in Huntly or in fact any northern Waikato town then you have had tremendous value gains – perhaps it is time to take your profit and be happy.
If so remember your team at L J Hooker Huntly, honest, true and working for you.

A Bit About Huntly
Situated on both sides of the Waikato River, approximately 93 km south of Auckland and 32 km north of Hamilton, Huntly is linked by the Tainui and Rail bridges. The town was originally called Rahui Pokeka when migrants settled in the town some time in the 1850s, Huntly was a military post during the Waikato war and a Pakeha settlement afterwards. The Huntly name was later adopted in the 1870s when the postmaster, James Henry, named it after his home town Huntly, Aberdeenshire in Scotland. He used an old ‘Huntley Lodge’ stamp to stamp mail from the early European settlement. The ‘Lodge’ was later dropped and the spelling changed to also drop the additional ‘e’.
Huntly expanded when commercial coal mining began. In 1874 Captain Anthony Ralph, a former Waikato militiaman who had been granted land nearby, registered the Taupiri Coal Mining Company, and Ralph’s mine opened in 1876. Companies owned by the Ralph family dominated the industry until the 1940s.
Huntly developed as a tight-knit working-class community. Many miners came from the South Island’s West Coast, and the north of England and Scotland. Local Māori also entered the industry in large numbers. Huntly miners stopped work for three months during the 1913 general strike. On 12 September 1914, 43 miners were killed in an explosion in Ralph’s mine.
Brick making began at Huntly in 1884. The dominant firm, the Huntly Brick and Fireclay Company, was established in 1911. After several name changes, it was still operating in the early 2000s as Shinagawa Refractories. Many buildings in the town are made of Huntly brick, including the Masonic Lodge, St Paul’s Anglican church, and the former Huntly Hospital, and it is a widely used building material throughout the region.
At first coal was mined underground at Huntly, but in 1915 a bridge across the Waikato River gave access to more coal on the west bank, and mining settlements such as Pukemiro, Glen Afton, Rotowaro, Waikōkōwai and Renown were established. Opencast mining began west of Huntly during the Second World War, and an opencast mine also opened on the east bank of the river at Kimihia. As nearby swamps were drained Huntly also became the centre of a farming community.
Huntly is known for many things; it’s rich mining history – the area’s mining history is on display at the local museum, Huntly surrounded by farmland, scenic walks and beautiful lakes (many of them former open-pit mines) which are used for coarse fishing, yachting and waterskiing and also the last remaining D*E*K*A sign. If you are a speed junky, Huntly is the home of the Huntly Speedway, with Hampton Downs race track and the Meremere dragstrip further north. For the people with a sweet tooth and love a good coffee you can take your pick from any of the cafes and bakery’s down the Main Street, plus all the main amenities in town, including health facilities, public library, supermarkets, gift stores, Real Estate Agents, including LJ Hooker and much much more.
One of New Zealands largest power stations, the Huntly Power Statoin is a large coal-fired power station, prominently situated on the western bank of the Waikato River. It is New Zealand’s largest thermal power station, situated in the area which is New Zealand’s largest producer of coal, producing over 10,000 tonnes a day.

The Huntly Sales Market continues to strengthen – and why not – affordable properties close to Auckland and the friendliest little town in the North Waikato.
Mid March saw the announcement of funding and tender acceptance for the North Huntly to Taupiri Expressway. This will, in 4 years time link Auckland to Cambridge ‘All on Expressway’.
What will this do to Huntly?
This can only be great for Huntly, pulling together the two halves of the town now divided by constant slow moving traffic. It will further reinforce Huntly as the most affordable dormitory township just beyond Auckland boundaries.
So, if you are looking to buy in a town with a future, Huntly must be on your shopping list!

Huntly Real Estate Sales are Going Off!
Off the top of the Sales Scale that is!
Huntly, the best value Real Estate destination in the Golden Triangle (Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga), is booming with lots of smart investors, first home buyers and cashed up owner occupiers moving in from Auckland.
How about this? – A smart South Auckland based family suddenly finding their modest Auckland home worth lots more. Commuting across town to work – 45 minutes each day. Would you believe cashed up they brought a lovely home in Huntly – kicked the mortgage to touch and now the commute to the North is only 10 minutes more, they are loving it!
At LJ Hooker Huntly, we have been listing lots of great properties for your spring selection – So; Be Smart, Be Mobile, Go Huntly.
June was active in Huntly and so it should be with the wonderful value to be had in this South Auckland Township.
In mentioning value, Huntly is an easy commute to Auckland and $300,000 – $400,000 can buy you a wonderful home. Huntly has lots of clubs and community facilities together with some very good schooling. So we highly recommend this wonderful town to you.
Yeah Huntly is on the move – although we must temper the excitement with the fact that values are still low and it is the low price that is driving the interest.
Huntly is a great place to invest, demand is extremely high. At LJ Hooker we would have no more than 1 or 2 available rentals at any one time and 20 enquiries a day for rental housing.
The team at LJ Hooker are extremely proactive, a great example being the only agency promoting properties at the Pokeno markets – see Ian Pepper from our Huntly office to take advantage of this initiative – ask him to tell you the story of a sale directly off his first promotion at this market place.
Huge Auction sale over $700k by Mel Cooper-Levin this week. Mel is new to LJ Hooker Huntly and the industry- man does she believe in Auction marketing.
The team at Huntly is lead and inspired by Barbara Craig and supported by Jan and Janet with Bill King chasing the rentals – if you need support with any of your real estate needs contact this fabulous team.

Auckland Comes Over the Bombay Range
The Bombay Ranges, South of Auckland, have always been perceived as the natural boundary between the Auckland region and Waikato. With the recent residential and industrial expansion of Pokeno, just south of the Bombays – it seems Auckland has taken that final step south. This sets the North Waikato up as a future growth area for its metropolitan cousin (Auckland).
So, buy now before 1.4 million Aucklanders wake up to the potential of the region, learn what 7,100 happy residents have already discovered!
