Housing Firm Though Not Everywhere

Housing Firm Though Not Everywhere

Good morning everyone.

The results from our latest monthly survey of licensed real estate agents around New Zealand show that perceived interest in buying from both investors and first home buyers has lifted over the past month. Interest in Open Homes remains strong, prices remain strongly perceived to be rising, but buyers are only marginally considered to be more motivated to act than sellers which is an interesting result. .
