Most of the last 5 years we have sold a home on Christmas Eve, usually a couple between Christmas and New Year and January has always been a great month for us.
We always make sure we have stock on hand as it is a time when many Kiwis arrive back from overseas, others migrate here and many more are moving with job transfers to Auckland. We also have families trying to secure a property so that they can show the local school that they have a contract on an “in zone” property before the 2017 first term commences.
So if you are looking for a home in the central Auckland area we have some fantastic listings available in Pt Chevalier and Waterview.
You can see our listings online here and contact our holiday period duty agent Derek von Sturmer:
firstname.lastname@example.org or phone/text 0275 337357
We also need more homes to satisfy what we expect will be strong demand in the Jan/Feb/Mar period so please contact Derek if you would like to book an appraisal for January and he will arrange for the team to call in and advise you on preparing your home for sale, provide a market estimate and assist you with planning a marketing campaign, timing etc.
The team, Lawrence, Jo, Ross and Derek wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017.

Interesting watching this live video on Facebook of Tom Panos running an auction – great to see that bidders must register and clearly display their bidding card when placing bids!
Bidding registration and ID provision prior to auction should be made compulsory in NZ.
Also note only one “vendor bid” permitted in Oz.

The latest QV Property Report was released on the 13th of June and it included these suburbs that we sell in and compares today’s values with the previous peak in 2007.
Here are the results with percentage increase since the previous peak:
Pt Chevalier 94.6%
Mt Albert 91%
Grey Lynn 88%
Freemans Bay 80%
St Marys Bay 61.4%
Herne Bay 48.3%
Pt Chevalier is the stand out suburb in this selection and it could have something to do with the fact that we have sold almost 60% of all homes there in the last 6 months.
Our team have the knowledge, experience and track record to achieve the best possible outcome for our sellers.
We have sold over $40,000,000 worth of homes in the last 90 days but we could always do with more. Thinking of selling – please email firstname.lastname@example.org

New Zealand’s major banks remain among the most profitable in the developed world yet they are in no rush to pass on the full OCR cut. Standard & Poor’s recently noted the “oligopolistic nature of the (NZ) system.” The banks need to be taken to task – they were very quick to increase when rates were going the other way!
Gareth Vaughan has an interesting article related to the greedy bankers published at interest.co.nz
If you currently bank with any of the banks who have not passed on the full OCR cut then it may be time to put some pressure on by looking to move elsewhere!
