Wanaka property finance


The quiet resort town of Wanaka is located in the southern end of Lake Wanaka, washed by the outflows of the Clutha River. It has been a haven of many retirees and the continental climate is a pleasant change from the other parts of New Zealand. Dubbed as an adventure paradise by many, the town is a more toned down version of Queenstown and is slowly becoming a favorite by those who want to truly get away from it all.

Property Finance For Wanaka, NZ

The market in Wanaka has remained quiet lately. The median sale price of a dwelling (dwelling good) in this area is $475,000* which represents a decrease of 5.4% compared to last year. Many vendors have drastically sold on the low side and it seems the decline won’t be stopping for some time.

The top end of the residential market is also at a stand still with only one recent sale reported. Some financially distressed sellers are trying to make a quick exit from the market and it is not uncommon to find sales discounted by 50% or more versus their early 2008 values. Many are hoping a resurgence in the economy will help boost property sales in the future.
