July was certainly rainy but the wet weather did not deter buyers who snapped up some fantastic homes that reached the desired goals for our vendors. We are only a month away until spring and looking forward to dryer weather but spring in the property market is likely to be late due to the impending election. It is a Kiwi phenomenon that in the months before an election, many industries slow down and take a wait and see approach to what the next three years will bring.
Once the election is done and dusted, the property market will back in full bloom, so if you are looking to make a move or get your property goals sorted before the end of 2017, talk to me now about how we can create a tailored marketing approach for your property.
Get a leap on the popular end of year market by ensuring your home is ready and presentable for sale when the nation is back to business as usual.
