Auckland is no longer the sole growth engine of the housing market. Several regions have reached new median price highs.

Foremost amongst them are key areas which EVES has a strong presence in - Waikato and Bay of Plenty. Across these two popular regions at the end of 2015 sales volumes were up 30 percent and prices up 11 percent.

On a weekly basis, our EVES sales teams deal with enquiry from buyers within the region who are selling or buying for all the usual reasons based on family circumstance, career moves, health and lifestyle motives.

However, the interest in our region from those further afield continues to grow. In addition, the exodus from Auckland for those seeking value for money, new careers and a change to a better lifestyle is a major factor. Over the past six years 38,000 people have left Auckland for the regions.

This brings additional business opportunities, resources, skills and growth in regional communities. Our EVES sales teams are dealing with record numbers of buyers and sellers in this buoyant market.

If you are thinking of selling, now is a very good time to contact the experts at EVES with more people selling more property.
