I have heard a number of buyers getting upset about “those Auckland buyers” coming through to the Bay of Plenty and snatching up all of the properties for sale and that criticism will become even greater as things tighten up regarding availability of stock. But those people who are selling are delighted that there is plenty of competition for their property giving them a sales price well and truly exceeding their expectations in many cases! Auction is still the preferred method of marketing property in today’s bullish market with some unbelievable results every week in the auction room. If you haven’t been to the auction room to see it for yourself, you need to pay us a visit on a Thursday afternoon.

A survey done for the month of July shows that a third of the properties sold went to Auckland buyers. That makes it more important than ever that you accept the inevitable and market your property to where buyers are. To this end, EVES is once again going to the Auckland Home Show at the start of September and we are taking our magazine to Auckland promoting Bay of Plenty properties. You need to think about getting your property into this magazine to ensure we don’t miss that one third of buyers who are buying our homes.
