Houses are not only selling for record prices at the moment but they are also sitting on the market for fewer days than the 10-year average. The property market is very much a seller’s market, and as we head into Spring, this is where house sales typically reach their most intensive period of the year. But even though more houses may be entering the market in the next few months this doesn’t mean it’s a bad time to list. There are a lot of buyers looking for their dream home and yours could be the perfect property!
The median house price across Taranaki was $565,000 in August 2021, up 25% on August 2020. In the same month, Taranaki also recorded the lowest number of properties sold in an August month since records began. This means supply is at a record low, which is driving up the average sale price. If you’re looking to buy, the nagging worry around whether prices will continue to rise can sit in the back of your mind, while sellers will wonder whether prices will continue to rise and wait to list.
