The monthly REINZ statistics are always an interesting read to gauge the real estate mood across New Zealand and then compare the national stats to our regional ones. During August nowhere across New Zealand experienced an increase in the number of sales between 2016 and 2017. Overall the number of properties sold in New Zealand fell by 20% or some 1,472 homes. 


However, within all these numbers there is a diamond and for August that is our region, where there were only seven less houses sold in August compared to last year. Yet again this does reflect just how fortunate we are to live in this location where we continue to enjoy improved business confidence, low unemployment and a strong and growing community.     


Our EVES salespeople understand this and as witnessed in last Friday’s Bay of Plenty Times article, continue to assist first home buyers onto the property ladder.


Ultimately, our EVES business is all about people. Whether that’s our team of salespeople, our community or helping people find their first or dream home. And just like any community, if we put people first, it’s proven that great business results will follow.
