Year 2

187 Campbell Rd Greenlane Auckland

  • The desire to own a slice of some of Auckland’s most highly sought suburbs is continuing to act as one of the key drivers of sales in the core Eastern Suburbs.
  • This isn’t just having an impact on the traditional ‘core’ Eastern Suburbs or Parnell, Remuera, Orakei and the Eastern Bays.
  • Increasingly, the peripheral suburbs of Greenlane, Ellerslie and St Johns are falling further into favour of residential investors.

The appeal of the Eastern Suburbs has always rested in the fact that the area is adjacent to the harbour, it has a high level of amenity, with a number of well established and distinct retail destinations, and that it is zoned for some of the country’s best schools.

These factors continue to be at the crux of drive people’s decisions to move into the area.

There also appears to be an overflow affect, which is having a positive impact on surrounding suburbs.

Purchaser interest in the core suburbs is currently outstripping the available property, so purchasers are turning to adjoining suburbs as an alternative.

Market watch

House prices continue to rise – listings in short supply and buyers remain in force

REINZ House sales up by 25% versus the previous year.

Average selling price up 14% from a year ago, 21% from the 2007 peak and 36% from the low of 2008/09

Activity is strong and although construction is rising the supply gain is relatively small, the lag effect will remain in place for some time.

New market influences – interest rates, higher deposit rates ?

Market watch

The development of Auckland Council’s Unitary Plan, in particular, the trend towards intensification, is drawing investors into the Eastern Suburbs.

Investors are continuing to look for ‘added value’ opportunities.

If and when the unitary plan is passed, there will be opportunities for building dwellings on smaller residential lots.

Developers are starting taking a forward looking position on this, looking for sections which can be further developed.
