Local Housing Rise Bonus for Wellington Home & Garden Show

Local Housing Rise Bonus for Wellington Home & Garden Show

Real Estate Institute of New Zealand Regional Director, Euon Murrell, believes that the Wellington housing market is on the rise.

“Real estate sales in the region were up for June, July and August, reflecting the national trend, which the REINZ expects to continue. Value for money and the ongoing availability of inexpensive finance will continue to give impetus to the market, not withstanding doubts about the worldwide economy, which is also likely to steer investment money into bricks and mortar. All this augurs well for Wellington home owners”, Mr. Murrell said.

Daniel Joll, show director of the Wellington Home & Garden Show, the region’s largest and longest-running home show, believes that this is good news for the event.

“Kiwis love their homes and we’re expecting a huge turnout from visitors when the show kicks off on Friday 25th, as they look to improve what they have or settle into a new property. It’s the only home show in Wellington this spring-summer and the Westpac Stadium will be packed with over 220 exhibitors showcasing the latest ideas, trends, products and massive show-only specials. It makes it so easy for show visitors because everything is under the one roof”, Mr. Joll said.

“The show also opens in perfect time to provide Wellingtonians with all the inspiration, advice and products they need to crack into their spring home improvement projects. Plants, kitchens, bathrooms, spa pools, outdoor furniture, lighting and solar solutions will all be on display, plus everything in between. We also think that the chance to win a $25,000 custom-designed kitchen package from Palazzo Kitchens & Appliances, will be a real drawcard.”, Mr. Joll said.

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

ACT: Call To Abolish Human Rights Commission

“The Human Rights Commission’s appointment of a second Chief Executive is just the latest example of a taxpayer-funded bureaucracy serving itself at the expense of delivery for New Zealanders,” says ACT MP Todd Stephenson. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
