Market Swings back in favour of buyers

OneRoof’s April House Price Report is here, and the headline is: The market has swung back in favour of buyers with a spike in new listings easing house price growth.

The pace of property value growth for New Zealand slowed to 0.5% ($5000) over the quarter. However, the figures also pointed to an overall rebound in the market, with property values in 60% of the country’s suburbs up year-on-year. The strongest lifts in the year to the end of March 2024 were in higher value Canterbury suburbs, including Merivale and Fendalton, and low-priced suburbs in West Coast.

According to the OneRoof figures, property values were up year-on-year in 481 New Zealand suburbs with 20 or more settled sales in the last year.
