Tauranga Property - What You Need To Know

Tauranga property values increased by 0.6% compared to the previous year with the average sales price of a dwelling (dwelling good) pegged at around $412,080*. The residential market is experiencing a lull, and many investors are holding off purchases and going into wait-and-see mode.

First home buyers are the most active sector in the local property market, easily scooping up many good properties under $350,000. While prices are fairly sharp, heavily-discounted sales are still quite rare. This can likely be attributed to stricter criteria instituted by banks in availing property loans.
