So many people have decided to sell up in the city, buy Wanaka property and move south in the past year. The recent lifestyle learnings have centered around working remotely. No longer is there an expectation that you have to be on site to perform to expectation. In fact quite to the contrary – [...]
Time and attention to the market from a dedicated professional - a buyers agent working for you - results in special properties that my clients know would not have been possible with the support of the team at Buyers Agent NZ. We trust our clients are in a safe pair of hands that have genuine desire to get it right, and keep it right.
Imagine finding a property that ticks more boxes than you even thought were possible. Having an overview across the entire market, both listed, advertised and not, with experience in what could be on offer, what works and what doesn’t allows options to be identified and more doors opened.
I spent lockdown thinking about a world where Wanaka property prices could be dropping. Although I did acknowledge that there was nowhere in the world that I'd rather be and thought that there would be expats wanting to get a slice of it. How wrong was I. For many Covid brought forward their plans to move south but for some the change of lifestyle came from a lockdown priority check. The net result has been a hike in prices to date in NZ including Wanaka.
With the Wanaka Real Estate market in a competitive phase, it can be a real game changer to discover an off market property. There are so few listings about at the moment. This combined with the imbalance of buyers pushes prices up. Having multiple bidders or offers on a property results in inflation of the price.
The most difficult part of making the decision to purchase in Arrowtown is finding a great property and securing it before anyone else can. Good properties are snapped up faster than seems possible, most you will never even be aware of as they are sold off market. Buyers agents will aim to get the earliest access to properties.
If you are serious about wanting to buy Wanaka property especially under the current market conditions, it is recommended to have someone on the ground working for you.
The reality of a Wanaka property search can be a frustrating time for those that have other priorities in their schedule. Being emotionally detached from the process can result in a completely different opinion of a property when taking into account the original objectives of a search. I’ve had a few buyers comment that they have ended up with a much better property than they’d dreamed possible after placing their Wanaka property search brief with us.
A buyers agent can offer earlier and wider access to properties for sale than you will be able to achieve yourself. This is a real game changer in the Arrowtown property market.
I specialize in New Zealand property acquisition and focus on Wanaka property with a colleague working on Arrowtown and Queenstown property search, analysis, purchase and relocation projects. As you can imagine the market is relatively dead at the moment. Marion and I are using this precious time to connect with our young families – really [...]
