I’m writing this at the same time as packing my bags to head to the UK – I’ll be doing appointments in London and Glasgow, and working at the immigration Expo in Glasgow nearer the end of the month. And yes, I’m packing a jacket just in case it’s still snowing.
Our new listings this week are at 75 Bronte Street, Nelson – a charming character home with three bedrooms, and a delightful double garage, this home is very easy walking distance to town. The owner has done some nice renovations and we would expect you could move in here without having to do more work before you can enjoy it as your new home.
We have a big family home coming up in Stoke that we’ll have photos and information for nearer the weekend and we should be able to bring that to you this time next week.
In my absence, my very able business partner Jacqui Miller will be doing the business, supported by our PA Miriam Cleary.
Have a great week
Since last week we have sold 1/6 Grove Street, The Wood, Nelson.
Although it was small and a little dated, the location was superb and the two offers we had were well over $400,000 – a clear recognition of the value of a location that is – at worst – two minutes’ walk to Nelson’s CBD.
We have a new inner city listing and we can bring you the details next week, but if you’re shopping in the mid $600,000s and looking for a two bedroom villa with a spacious double garage, please give us a call asap.
Have a great week,
This is almost the last week to get your property listed for me to take to the UK in March if you are wanting exposure to buyers there as well as the local market – please call me if you would like to talk about how we can help you in that regard.
Since last week we have sold 12 Tollemache Street, Richmond – a charming brick home that took our buyers’ eye as soon as it was listed – we wish both buyers and sellers our hearty congratulations.
1/6 Grove Street, The Wood, Nelson and just along the same road, 4 Rosa Cristina Way (off Grove Street) both have open homes this weekend. At opposite ends of the price spectrum, they both enjoy a great central city location, and both are built with low maintenance in mind.
We look forward to seeing you there – have a great week.
Hot on the heels of my comments over the last few weeks about the state of the market is the following – since the 1st December last year our own sales team has sold six properties in the $2.0 m + price range.
The upper end is always the first to falter if there’s a settling of the market, but the strength of the market at this end is consistent with a continuing, firm market in this city, as we’ve been saying all year. Last week, QV released a report talking about this, and you can read it HERE
Our first open home at 1/6 Grove Street, Nelson is this week, and we look forward to seeing you if you want an entry-level home or popular investment property very close to town.
Have a great week.
The big news of course is my impending selling trip to the UK – if you’re wanting a good price for your property this adds an extra opportunity to achieve that in a way that no other company can offer. In the 10 years I’ve been doing this, the only other agent in New Zealand that I’ve seen pull this off successfully has been a Bayleys agent in New Plymouth.
Here’s a link to a very interesting article by Tony Alexander, the BNZ’s chief economist, about whether we are in a bubble market or not. This is an excellent, fact-filled 5 minute read. A very important read if you’re contemplating buying.
Our new listing today is a brilliantly located 2 bedroom unit in Grove Street, in Nelson’s Wood. Just across the river from the Information Centre and the well-renowned River Kitchen Café, this is an awesome entry-level and investment property that we expect will be popular. Parts of the interior are a little dated, which allows a new owner to put their own special stamp on the home of their dreams.
Have a great weekend.
Not a lot to talk about this week, except to reinforce what we covered last week – if you are a potential seller in Nelson and want your property represented by me in the UK in March, please call me now and we can talk about the options available to you.
