Happy New Year to you all. 2019 should be a great year to sell and buy local real estate.
Prices have stabilised and values are becoming more obvious.
If you have been, or are looking, at properties with no ‘building’ or ‘site issues’ the market value is more likely to be obvious as a result of activity nearby. This confidence seems to currently be accepted by lenders, and interest rates are not increasing at this point.
A brief word on 2018…
The total number of sales in Remuera was basically the same as 2017 at around 420 properties, but the total value of these sales was down. This reflected a reduction in the number of sales over $3m. This reduction, we believe, is more as a result of lack of availability of good quality homes in the $4.5m+ range, as opposed to a reduction in demand.
The majority of properties we sold were sold in the first fortnight and at, or very near to, the asking price.
Back to 2019…
We start the New Year with some lovely listings (see below), plus other properties that are on our ‘secret’ list i.e. available to view and sell on a confidential basis. If you have interest in any of these then please give Diana or Terry a call and they will tell you more.
If you are thinking of selling please give us a call and we will arrange to visit at a time that suits and then prepare an appraisal covering recent comparative sales, what we believe your property is worth and who we believe would be the most likely buyers.
After having been Terry’s ‘right hand’ for almost six years Fiona Wilson is leaving us to pursue a career in the ‘health charities’ area. During her time at RRER her contribution has been extraordinary and from our point of view she will be sadly missed.
Lisa will be taking over from Fiona from January 14th. She comes to us with considerable experience in real estate, is a licensed salesperson and has specialised in being a ‘buyer’s agent’. The Remuera Real Estate Register way of doing business is what she does ‘naturally’.
Lisa is an excellent addition to our team.
We look forward to catching up with you, and if you wish to view any of the listings below, please see our website for further details www.remuerarealestateregister.co.nz.
