REINZ October report

Nationally, excluding Auckland, median prices increased 5.7% year-on-year and Auckland median prices remained flat at $845,000. However, on a month-on-month basis, Auckland’s median price increased by 1.2% or by $10,000. Contributing to the overall increase, six regions across the country experienced doubledigit median price increases in September year-on-year:

• Tasman (up 19.3% to $572,500)

• Hawke’s Bay (up 18.3% to $392,000)

• Gisborne (up 14.9% to $270,000

• Northland (up 14.4% to $446,000)

• Wellington (up 10.6% to $531,000)

• Southland (up 10% to $220,000).

Only two regions experienced price decreases during September (compared to September 2016) – West Coast (down 15.6% to $208,500) and Canterbury (down 3.2% to $426,000). Bindi Norwell, CEO at REINZ says: “Prices across the country increased in all but three regions, evidence that the market continues to grow despite some challenging conditions – including the LVR restrictions and banks continuing to tighten lending conditions. Much of the increase has been driven by the buoyancy in the regions.”
