Welcome to our November Newsletter

Brought to you by Michael Tierney of Ray White Arrowtown

September and October saw the Arrowtown property market take a significant dive compared to this time last year. There were six house sales and two section sales during September and October, compared with 12 sales over this period in 2012.

Arrowtown Market Review
Listings are still short especially in the lower end, $400,000 to $500,000. Because of a big shortage of land we are now loosing sales to other Suburbs like Lake Hayes Estate, Lower Shotover Country subdivision and Jack’s Point where section and house prices are significantly cheaper.

There is still good buyer demand in the $400,000 to $600,000 price bracket and we expect this to continue for the foreseeable future.

The team at Ray White Arrowtown appreciate you have a number of choices when selling your home. We sell more property than all the local Real Estate companies combined and we put this down to our long association with Arrowtown, being local, supporting the many clubs and organisations in the town and having a hard working, loyal team, based on integrity and trust.

If you are thinking of selling, now is the perfect time.
