Don’t you love sunshine! In spite of some shocking weather last weekend we are finding a determination on the part of buyers to go forward. Many are capitalising on this low interest rate environment. We note that borrowing by first home buyers at $900 million for the month is the highest since the information from the RBNZ regarding borrowing was made available in 2014. If you’re a buyer I would be careful taking too much notice of headlines that talk about a softening market. Quality property is in short supply and selling for good money. Our take is that demand in central Auckland is strong and supply is still tight.
