We may have lost our beautiful sunny days and this weekend we are officially into winter, but it is great to see the real estate market is still strong.
I attribute this to a number of factors - low interest rates (remember 1982 and interest rates of 26%?) and plenty of confidence in the economy, particularly in employment certainly play a major role in adding to the strength of the real estate market.
We are seeing plenty of new stock in and good sales occurring. We have 18% of the sales going to first home buyers, up from 12% and we are seeing good action through the auction process.
We still offer fantastic free marketing campaigns and we have a group of dedicated professionals who are able to guide you through the buying and selling process.
Stay warm and remember if you are needing anything real estate pop in or call one of our nine EVES offices throughout the Bay of Plenty.
