The Upper Hutt market is picking up!

Hi folks,

It’s brilliant to (finally) write that the Upper Hutt property market is picking up and is currently moving at a very good pace, particularly in the under $600,000 price range where the majority of Upper Hutt properties sit. It is especially great to say this in Winter, a traditionally quieter time of the year to sell.

I don’t get to skite often but...

I don’t get to skite often, that’s because I know I will get shot down pretty quickly! (and not just from my wife) However on this occasion can I please give myself a little self-congratulatory pat on the back after agreeing 11 sales in a 12 day period (9 from 9 at one point).

Keep up to date with Real Estate market conditions!

Hi folks,

It’s fair to say that I consider myself very knowledgeable about the Upper Hutt residential market place and one thing I have learned is that most people who have just bought or sold a property know a lot about their market in their area are as well. They have gained this knowledge over weeks and months of looking at properties to buy or preparing themselves to sell. So how can they keep this market knowledge current so that they always know market trends and price movements?

The Auckland property boom is spreading

Hi folks,

As we all know the Auckland real estate market is going gang busters, it’s pretty difficult to avoid as it seems it’s on the news nightly and a favourite topic on Talkback radio. It’s particularly difficult to listen to if you’re in the situation of selling your property in Upper Hutt for the same as you paid some years ago or even less as the case may be.

First time buyers: help is on its way

Hi folks,

It seems quite some time since I last wrote about the Upper Hutt residential market but as the most recent sales statistics are now out, it seems appropriate to look at them and see what’s happening in our fair city. The good news is that with April sales concluded we can see that the market is faring better than 2014. From January 1st to April 30th there were 30 sales more than the previous year, as good as this is, it is still 61 sales down on 2013, obviously the Loan Value Restrictions are still having an impact on our market.

Hi folks,

The Real Estate Institute has just released the sales figures for March 2015 and while they are not in the same league as that foreign country Auckland they do make for some pleasant reading. The actual number of residential sales in Upper Hutt was 77, making this the busiest sales month since March 2013.
