Queenstown Property Finance - What You Need To Know

Sales of properties in Queenstown reflect national sales trends. The market for the first quarter of 2010 has been steady and the volatility experienced at the start of the recession seems to have passed. The average sales price for a dwelling (dwelling good) is $592,394*. Residential land sales have been active during the early part of 2010, with demand from buyers for land to build on. These sales represent a sign that the local economy is gradually improving.

Apartment sales continue to be slow-moving and unpredictable due to oversupply and the fact that their appeal is limited mainly to investor buyers or absentee holiday home owners. Vendors need to be realistic about meeting market expectations in pricing. Purchasers are tending to continue to take their time to make decisions, offering below vendors’ expectations, leading to a more intensive negotiation process.
