The local economy continues to benefit from out of towners travelling here not just for tourism but for work. 3000 vacancies were advertised last week for pickers required for the upcoming kiwifruit season. Friends recently told me they started coming here to pick fruit and having loved the area and the people so much, they decided to move here. All these factors help our economy to flourish as do the numerous cruise ships and tourists coming to visit.
Further signs of our flourishing economy would have to be the number of commercial buildings either currently under construction or where building permits have been applied for through the council.
On the housing front, the number of homes sold across the city was up 22% on January 2018 and prices remained steady moving up 3.3% on the previous year. All of these things are showing a good, solid market and a good option for those people thinking of buying or upgrading their home.
If we can assist with either of these, make sure you call into any one of our eight offices throughout the Bay of Plenty.
EVES. Exceptional. Every day.
