Whangarei Heads Attracts Investor Interest

31 March 2005

Whangarei Heads Attracts Investor Interest & New Harveys Office

The continued quest by local and offshore buyers to invest in quality coastal property has resulted in Harveys Group opening a new office in Whangarei Heads.

Noeline Dean, owner of Dean Realty Ltd in Whangarei and Kaikohe says the push into the region in the last 12 months “has been overwhelming and we are delighted with it.”

“Finally the beauty of Whangarei Heads which locals have long known about has been discovered and now everyone wants to invest in such a desirable area,” she says.

The new Harveys office is located at McLeod Bay, 25kms from Whangarei, and Noeline says the buyers are a combination of locals, Aucklanders and overseas investors, interested in establishing permanent residence and holiday homes – “it’s a real mix of a community.”

Because properties around Whangarei Heads are still affordable, they are gaining the attention of the holiday market. The area is still a haven of serenity, seemingly far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, unlike other more well-known Northland holiday destinations.

Noeline is joined at ‘The Heads’ branch by a sales and administration team of four. She believes her knowledge of the region will be the key to success. “This is a great opportunity and we look forward to building a strong partnership with the region and seeing it continue to flourish, she says.”

The Whangarei Heads team recently sold a beachfront motor camp to an investor looking to subdivide the area into idyllic seaside properties for permanent residence or holiday homes.

The offices’ central location near key development areas and features, such as the local art gallery and landmark café, ‘The Deck’, means that growth is likely to continue right throughout 2005 and beyond.
