Those of us who live in Hawke’s Bay often need reminding of the benefits of living here, a lifestyle created primarily by the climate. Visitors to our region are impressed with what we enjoy and whilst here, commonly spend time looking at Real Estate and often create a demand.
Where am I going with this? You should feel good. We do live an enviable lifestyle, easy weekday commutes, the availability of fresh produce, job stability and quality schools being among the many components. The upside of Hawkes Bay’s desirability has increased our personal wealth through property. Now is the time if you wish to sell to downsize, upsize, or heaven forbid leave the region. There is a buyer wanting to purchase your property. To give a measure on value, in the year May to May the median house price in Hawke’s Bay has increased 9.3% to $470,000. The number of properties on the market is equal to just 9 weeks of stock, equal lowest in New Zealand. So act now. Contact your closest Tremains office, request an Appraisal, a Marketing Package and get planning. The market will not be like it is forever. Figures are created by history and give confidence but Purchasers are the arbitors, they drive the market whether it be up or down, and currently they are queuing at Open Homes, talking to their Banks and Mortgage Brokers and surfing the net. This situation will not last forever, the Real Estate Market has always been and will remain, cyclical. Take advantage is my advice.
Tremains opened a branch in Waipukurau last week to serve Central Hawke’s Bay, so please if you would like some advice on the market in that lovely part of our region, pop into the office in Ruataniwha Street and say hello to Megan Dallimore. She would welcome your visit.
On a self congratulatory note, Tremains sold 97 properties across Hawke’s Bay last month, a record for us. Quite an acheivement for a company that saw its inception almost 50 years ago when Kel and Pam Tremain opened for business in Taradale and started what has become a widely respected business.
