    Is Feilding’s Market Over Heated? I Don’t Think So!

    It does depend on which crystal ball you look into. My reason for thinking that Feilding’s market is not over heated is because about 5 years ago in July 2012 the Feilding median residential sale price calculated over 3 months was $249,000 and the median for New Zealand was $368,000, a difference of $119,000. 3 years later in July 2015 Feilding’s median ...

    Feilding Pride Increases

    When I came back to Manawatu in 1983 and worked in real estate and property valuation, it is fair to say that the main reason that outsiders purchased here, was because it was cheap. If asked where a local came from he or she tended to look at the ground and mumble "Feilding," in the hope that no-one heard. Local ...

    Lies, Damned Lies & Statistics!

If we look at the Manawatu – Whanganui Region, the prediction is for 7.1% population growth in the 30 years to 2043. This is less than impressive!
