Auckland was recently ranked as the fourth most liveable city in the world according to the Mercer Quality of Living Survey. It placed way ahead of many other cities such as Sydney (10th), Wellington (12th) and Melbourne (18th). A busy port city, Auckland has two harbours situated in two distinct bodies of water. The urban area is nestled between the Waitemata Harbour, which leads to the Pacific Ocean, and the Manukau Harbour, which opens to the Tasman Sea.

The city houses almost one-third of the entire New Zealand population and is the fastest growing area in the nation. The “City of Sails” has the greatest number of yachts per capita than any other city in the world, making it a perfect refuge for sailing enthusiasts. You can enjoy a metropolitan lifestyle in Auckland while still being close to nature.

 Auckland Property - What You Need To Know

The average sales price for a dwelling (dwelling good) in Auckland is $470,000*. Property values in the area increased by 9.5% compared to last year. It is expected that this year’s market will be a bit flat judging by the mixed directions of the residential market, ranging from positive to negative to neutral.

From a valuer’s perspective, the market remains steady. Home and income properties continue to be popular with buyers due to two streams of income from one site. There are indications that investors will wait for budget announcements on changes to be made on local property tax laws before making property decisions. The Auckland property market is stable as of the moment though it can move either way once the government announces new budget information or changes in the interest rates.
