Matheson’s Bay Takes On Omaha

09 February 2005

Matheson’s Bay Takes On Omaha

Omaha may still be the ‘must have’ location for those seeking holiday sites north of Auckland, but nearby Matheson’s Bay can still generate interest. A two bedroom 1960s bach recently sold for $485,000 after just two days.

The property, 200 metres from the coastline, attracted four offers within 24 hours of listing. Harveys Warkworth real estate agent Marie-Dominique Lennan, who is also a resident of Matheson’s Bay says, “interest in Matheson’s Bay and the Kowhai Coast has exploded over the past five years.

At the moment we have a database of 300 serious buyers looking to purchase in the area, so there is immediate interest in a property before a more conventional print advertising campaign even begins.” Harveys is the only office to have an agent who lives and specialises in Matheson’s Bay. It lists and sells 70% of properties in the Leigh and Matheson’s Bay area through their Warkworth office.
