Acres in Meeanee

Very rarely does a 4 hectare Horticultural block become available in the heart of Meeane. Well The Harpers have listed just that.

This block is currently being planted as a market garden with areas of pumpkins and corn. The property has 2 bores one for irrigation and one for the domestic supply. There is a two bedroom cottage on the property which has had some recent improvements, it is currently rented at $250 per week.

The land is zoned rural – we have available on request a copy of Napier Cities District Plan which does provide information what is permitted or discretionary activities on the property.

The property is being marketed by way of TENDER which will close on the 28th February 2018. Check out the property

Phone Mike 0274445373 or Emerald 0278282296 to arrange an opportunity to view.

Is it time to sell?

Time to Sell Now?
One of the questions we often get from prospective home sellers is should I list my home now or wait until I find something I want to buy? There really is no right or wrong answer. Much of the decision making process should center around your personal circumstances, along with local market conditions.

For example, what if there are very few homes for sale? Low inventory is fantastic for home sellers. Basic economics of supply and demand tells us that most things sell for more money when there is less of them available. It has been proven time and again this applies to housing.


Here a just a few of the Pros when listing your home before you find a home to purchase.

1) A lot of people don’t realise that you can negotiate a longer settlement or better still, cover yourself by inserting a condition to the Sales & Purchase agreement allowing yourselves time to acquire another property. Buyers still fulfil & confirm their conditions so most of the time it leaves you in a position where it is only subject to you finding a home. If you don’t find one, the offer and sale does not proceed.

2) You are in a better position when you do find a home. We all know that multi offers are still happening on most homes and those with homes to sell often miss out in this process. If you are in a position where the contract on your home is just subject to you finding a home, you will not require a subject to sale clause. That places you in a stronger position when entering negotiations.

3) Interest Rates still remain low so making changes sooner rather than later could work in your benefit if you are interested in fixing at lower rates. Will they rise this year like predicted? We don’t have a crystal ball, but if you are considering a move this year, now is a good time.

4) Motivated Buyers are looking everywhere throughout Hawkes Bay. There are still plenty of first home buyers with pre approvals looking and not finding a lot out there and the same can be said for buyers with budgets between $450,000 – $650,000. Most buyers in this bracket have homes to sell but they are ready to List when they find the right one, which brings us full circle back to point 1.

So, when it comes to selling; The statistics are in your favour – historically, homes sell for more with low stock there’s no better time than now.

2018 is here & NOW IS THE TIME TO GET SOLD!!
