Wellington houses hit $1 million mark

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you think your house is worth $1 million?
Property values in Wellington city have exceeded the $1 million mark and the rest of the region isn’t too far behind.
Housing prices have soared since the Covid-19 pandemic and the country's housing crisis continues to see people, especially first home buyers, being crowded out of the opportunity to purchase a home.
The latest data, released on Wednesday morning by property data provider CoreLogic, shows Wellington’s housing market continues to set jaw-dropping new records with the region seeing the greatest rate of growth.
CoreLogic’s House Price Index found Wellington city’s average current value had reached $1,012,163​. In the city’s western suburbs that rose to $1,160,087​.

A helmet may be one of the best investments you can ever make

Grant Neighbourly Lead from Johnsonville

The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.
After this incident I can wholeheartedly recommend safety helmets as one of the best investments you can ever make.
