Ray White Now – Volume 42

Menique Stuart

Our 42nd edition of Ray White Now welcomes the second quarter of 2021, with trading in April continuing the momentum of the first quarter of 2021.

The month of April was the first month where the Government housing restrictions came into place to firstly try and place mechanisms that will see investors review their level of activity in the current real estate market, and secondly, and more positively, the Government provided further incentives to first home buyers occupying their properties to be able to assist in purchasing. While the balance of the market remains particularly active, the Reserve Bank together with the Government are monitoring house price increases across New Zealand.
