New Zealand home sales fall 4% year on year: REINZ

Real estate Institute of New Zealand

The real estate Institute of New Zealand is reporting that home sales fell -4% year on year.  However the adjusted median home price was 

  • +1.1% in October and 
  • +7.6% year on year.
  • The medium house price year on year rose from NZ$ 561,500 to NZ$ 607,500

The decline in volume year on year was due to a number of people aiming to sell their homes before the foreign buyer ban came into effect at the end of October 2018. As a result the numbers a year ago were skewed to the upside.

According to Bindi Norwell of the REINZ, there were 7800 fewer listings for the 1st 10 months of 2019.
