Auckland Buyers Look to Taranaki

“As we are all aware, the Auckland market has risen so rapidly in recent times that owning a property in Auckland is now beyond the reach of many. Many of those who own homes are saddled with huge mortgages, leaving little money to enjoy a lifestyle. There has been a move by many Aucklanders to look further afield, either for investment or, if they are in a position to do so, to move their families to regional New Zealand where property is affordable and the lifestyle is more relaxed.”

The above is an excerpt from a blog I wrote 2 years ago regarding the number of Aucklanders moving to New Plymouth to escape the big City lifestyle or, investing in residential real estate at a level unheard of in a major metropolitan city. In the intervening two years, interest in Taranaki property from Auckland buyers has continued to grow proportionate to increasing Auckland property prices.

In September, we will represent our vendors properties at the Auckland Home Show Those clients who confirm their listing with us before August 18 will receive a full page advertisement in the Home Show Magazine, plus other added benefits, at our cost. Their properties will be showcased to an estimated 48,000 Home Show attendees. To find out more, click the link below and call Darryl or me on 0800ATBAYLEYS

“Beyond Auckland Expo” – Targeting Auckland Buyers for your Property

AuctionbooksquareNo doubt you’ve heard about the overheated Auckland market and you’re thanking your lucky stars that you don’t have to compete as a buyer there. REINZ trends over the past few months show that buyers are now looking outside Auckland to secure a foothold in the property market and Aucklanders faced with the challenges of increasing traffic and the inability to afford the quarter acre dream are increasingly turning (albeit belatedly) to the appeal of the regions.

Some are choosing to escape the pace of city life by moving out of Auckland; others are getting a foothold in the property market through purchasing investment properties. With Auckland prices increasing every day, yield returns are suffering, while higher yield investments in Taranaki are made even more attractive by current low interest rates.

The truth is that Auckland buyers are now actively looking outside their city for investment properties and they are eager to take advantage of high yield opportunities.

Property marketing is about reach and relevancy and Bayleys has harnessed this approach with its new marketing offer. We’re taking regional New Zealand to the Big Smoke with a cost-effective, highly-visible marketing campaign that will showcase your property to Aucklanders ham-strung by the chains of the unaffordability of the Auckland market.

There’s a range of innovative marketing solutions for the taking, including your property displayed at the Auckland Property Expo 2015, print advertising in Beyond Auckland Property Portfolio and influential New Zealand Herald, as well as capturing all those online eyeballs on the New Zealand Herald Online website, one of the nation’s most popular websites. We’ll put your property in touch with the right people and extend your target market. Give us a call today to learn more about how we can connect you with motivated Auckland buyers.

Not Only an Outdoor Paradise

Live in Taranaki

It is no secret that Taranaki is a paradise for those who love the outdoors. However, for those of us (because I am one of you) who love the theatre and the arts, Taranaki has plenty to offer.
Taranaki has a local Operatic Society, the calibre of which is the envy of many other centres. The production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera is the largest ever undertaken with a budget close on $700,000 and a cast and crew of nearly 200.
