Now we are finally seeing some warm, sunny summer weather we can enjoy outdoor living with lots of barbeques popular with us Kiwi's. Those long summer evenings are a real bonus.
At this time of the year we see many families returning from a deserved holiday break with thoughts of a change in lifestyle.
This seems to happen for a number of reasons. Families have have time to sit down and discuss the future in a more relaxed fashion and changes in real estate terms can be a popular choice. Thoughts of a bigger home, a smaller home, more privacy, country living and buying an investment property are just some of the popular considerations.
We usually see a busy start to the year and this will generally happen right through autumn. With the economy in such a good state and unemployment on the low side, it is easy to see that when you add historically low bank interest rates, the market will still have buoyancy, especially in the regions.
The rental side of our business goes through a golden period at this time of year. However, we do have a problem as we have a major shortage of homes available for tenants and this is a real cause for concern. The homes we do have available are quickly snapped up and as we have little new stock coming on board we are going to have many prospective new tenants being very disappointed. Give us another 30 homes to rent and this would help everyone.
2019, it is going to be a good year I believe.
