“Why Work With a Real Estate Agent?”

Hi folks,

You may not know this but sometimes I really struggle with what I’m going to write about every second week in our local paper, I would be happy to bore people all day every day about my job because I love it and really wouldn’t do anything else however I am aware that some people out there do not love what I do and question why real estate agents are necessary. Let’s face it we are one of the least trusted careers alongside politicians and used car salespeople. So this week the question is “Why work with a real estate agent?”

January & February have been brilliant!

Hi folks,

When I write about the market, I do so armed with recent sales statistics so there can be no doubt about market changes, I can confidently say that there 46 residential sales in Upper Hutt in January 2015, this is up on the 36 sales in January 2014. I’m not going to manipulate the stats and say “wow a nearly 30% increase!” I’m simply going to point out that it is 10 sales up, which isn’t a lot when you consider there are 400 properties for sale in Upper Hutt.

Two businesses that really impressed me

Hi folks,

As we all know time flies and as I get older it seems to fly much faster, I’m not sure if that’s due to a 21st century work lifestyle, always connected via phone to internet, emails and phone calls or it’s simply a sign of age. (Feel free to let me know) As regular readers know I write my musings every 2 weeks, a lot of the time it gets repetitive as there is only so much I can write about our local market and trends and the reality is that I’m heavily reliant on the sales stats from REINZ coming through which they won’t until the end of this week, 2 days after you see this in The Leader.

A Hectic Start to 2015!

Hi folks,

Apparently we are only 3 weeks into the New Year, I say apparently because already I can’t remember Christmas, it’s fair to say that I’ve hit the ground running in 2015 and the biggest issue I have will be convincing myself that 2015 will be a marathon and not a sprint.

Merry Christmas and an LVR-Free 2015 to You!

Hi folks,

As these are my last musings for 2014, I will keep it short. As regular readers know I read as much information as I can regarding the Upper Hutt property market and disseminate between the national and local information supplied. As such you will be aware it’s been a hard year in real estate terms in Upper Hutt so I would like to congratulations to those that have sold and very best wishes for those trying to sell.

The Upper Hutt real estate market: quiet but steady.

Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I last talked about the sales statistics for Upper Hutt so this is long overdue! Since November 1st there have been a steady number of listings coming to the market, there are now 310 properties on Open2View up from 285 in early October, there’s nothing unusual in that, it’s exactly the same thing that happens every year and also the reason more sales happen. Summer is on the way and people like the idea of being in a new home by Christmas.
