Once again the March REINZ report has shown that we live in a popular region. The volume of sales completed in March were up 19.9% in February to just over 300. In addition to this we witnessed a 3.5% increase in the median sale price to $650,000.


Following what was a post election slow down and a wetter than usual spring in 2017 we have seen a more positive market trend over the first three months of this year which continues into April. Our EVES salespeople are experiencing good numbers at open homes, a gradual return of the first home buyer and good activity on most property.


What does this mean to you when looking to sell?


Demand still remains however, some homes are taking longer to sell and we are negotiating more conditional contracts. Being prepared before going to market is essential and some ‘old school’ pre sale house preparation and knowledge will make your home more saleable.    


The best advice when preparing to go to the market is to talk to one of our EVES salespeople so you understand how to make you home stand out in the market and attract the very best buyers.   


EVES, excellent people, excellent marketing, excellent results.
