This Week  - A lot of changes with me over the last few weeks. I have left the Team environment and back on my own. As well as selling my listing at 69 Prince Regent Drive, Half Moon Bay, I have been busy building up a team of professionals around me and I am ready again for my next listing. Overall in Real Estate from my view, there has been some amazing sales and generally great interest in all the properties on the market. Though houses that have had development potential, amazing views are the properties that have been previously achieved great results, it is apparent that well maintained/updated and awesomely presented properties are having large viewings and also getting exceptional prices. I have some great comparable property sales examples to illustrate if you would like to discuss further.

I still believe the best time to buy property is NOW. Unless you are going to buy and sell in the next few years, any fluctuations in the Real Estate market will be dealt with over time and if you find a property that is in your budget and that is suitable to your needs then get on and buy the property. Sitting and waiting for the market to drop is a dangerous game. I have been hearing this for many years from commentators saying the market in Auckland will drop or realign. The decision to sell a property is either driven by a need to sell or a want to sell. If Vendors need to sell it is either to move to something else or due to financial pressure but either way, do you really think they will take a 10% loss on their sale unless they really have to? I don't think most would if they had a choice and there is plenty of assistance available for those in need at the moment. If they want to sell but don't really need to, then they definitely won't be selling 10% below perceived valuation. Also, remember the Banks that are commenting on this drop in property prices have no skin in the game as in they don't own residential property. They use statistics from average sale prices to demonstrate these so-called facts.

At some stage, confidence will return and the economic commentators will again be telling us what they think is going to happen next. Are you going to wait for them to get the latest lot of statistics to tell you the market has changed again? It is constantly changing and adjusting so there will always be opportunities to buy well. So if you are waiting for the market to change, it just did.
