From time to time I hear from some folk that the local property market is struggling, that it will follow the Australian trend and that property isn’t selling. Well I disagree on all fronts. These’s been plenty of sales, steady values and the fundamentals under pinning the market are all stable. The median sale price for Tauranga City continues to rise and there was a similar number of sales in 2018 as there were in 2017. Our local economy is thriving on the back of New Zealand’s largest port here in Tauranga.
