September 2018

Who’s excited for spring! Enquiries are starting to pick up, the weather is starting to warm up, lambs are frolicking in the fields, the trees are in blossom, and the New Zealand housing market is emerging from its winter slumber. If you’re looking for a fun activity with the kids on these warmer weekends I suggest heading up to Sullivans Bay, Mahurangi Regional Park – enjoy a walk, have a picnic, enjoy the views, and go and see all the cute little lambs.

Traditionally, the months of August through to November see a spike in new listings: from around 3,700 in the middle of winter to over 4,700 homes by Christmas. Despite the wet and cold weather, buyers have remained out in force over winter, with many of the astute buyers excited for the influx of new listings this Spring. The warmer weather traditionally brings with it an increase in prices too.

Recently, I sat down with Bayleys Orewa Manager, Ryan Steven, to discuss what we should expect to see with the new season ahead, in addition, to how the North Shore and Hibiscus Coast markets correlate. Some key points were highlighted on where the buyer trends are headed towards, how to make your property stand out amongst competition this Spring and the importance of why we should consider the impact of the North Shore when it comes to our local property market.

First Impressions

How your home comes across in the first few minutes of viewing with a potential buyer can critically determine the outcome at the other end of the sale process.

Tasteful decoration, careful presentation, and clever use of space can often be the crucial difference between an ‘acceptable’ result and a great result. While some homes require a bare minimum to prepare them for sale, others need a little additional input to really attract the market’s interest. At Bayleys, we’ve put together just a few recommendations on how you can maximise the sale price of your home.
