Today is the day the Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated.
FUN FACTS
The Dragon Boat Festival is an important Chinese festival which is celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th month in the lunar calendar. This year that date is 3 June 2022.
- It is celebrated to commemorate the Chinese poet and Minister of State, Qu Yuan who drowned himself after being disillusioned with the government.
- The 5th month in the lunar calendar is known by some as the "Month of Poison" as this is when 5 poisonous creatures (centipedes, snakes, scorpions, toads and geckos) begin to emerge, which when combined with the warming spring weather is the perfect environment for people becoming ill so the greeting for the festival is "Healthy Dragon Boat Festival" rather than Happy Dragon Boat Festival"
So everyone, Healthy Dragon Boat Festival.

With Autumn now well and truly upon us, the mornings are cool and fresh, just perfect for that early morning walk and the evenings being all about getting cosy and comfortable in your home.
Although there is currently market uncertainty and it is hard to predict how the market will perform for the rest of this year, what we do know is the average sale price for March was up 3.2% on February this year and the average sale price for March was up 11.4% on March 2021.
March has also seen an increase in listings which provides great variety for purchasers. If you are a buyer looking to buy and are looking for someone to do the legwork for you, call me to discuss your wish list as there is nothing I love better than finding someone their perfect home.
Meanwhile, grab a coffee or tea and sit down with our latest "Sold" magazine. Always an interesting read and an easy way to keep tabs on the sale prices being achieved in your local neighbourhood.

DO YOU NEED A LIM WHEN PURCHASING?

People often ask whether a LIM is really necessary when purchasing a property.
Vendors are reluctant to pay for one as part of the sale documentation as they are sure there are no issues with their property. Purchasers don't see value in obtaining one, so is a LIM necessary? Click on the link… View more

Auckland Council Council Valuations (CV's)

Debby from Debby McNab Real Estate

The long awaited Auckland Council CV's have just been released.

The long awaited Auckland Council CV's have just been released.
A CV is usually completed for a property in Auckland every 3 years but as a result of Covid related issues, the CV's have just been released nearly two years late and are calculated as at mid 2021 when the property market was frantic and at its high point. There is a good argument that the CVs do not bear any relation to the actual value of a property.

CV's are prepared by Councils for the purposes of setting rates, not assessing market value.

Click on the link below to read the One Roof article. It makes interesting reading.

One thing is sure, the true indication of a property's value is what a willing buyer will pay for it at the given time it is on the market.

If you want help buying or selling, then contact me and let me help you negotiate the current market
