Boris Johnson has announced a second lockdown for the whole of England from last Thursday, for a four week period. This has resulted in online enquiry increasing for property in New Zealand. We most certainly have already seen enquiry spike during our Level 3 and 4 lockdown, in particular from ex pats realising that New Zealand’s ‘conservative approach’ to COVID might be a blessing when countries in which they were residing took a less pragmatic approach. Interestingly, current stats from realestate.co.nz show Australia as being the country the strongest enquiry is currently coming from with the USA a very close second and the UK in third place. We can expect those numbers to change and increase in the next few weeks. We continue to list and sell properties doing some incredibly good work for our vendors in the auction room in particular. If you are thinking of selling, talk to us about the results we are achieving across the board!
