We have recently seen all the major banks implementing tougher requirements for borrowers and increased interest rates, which is starting to show a change in the market - especially for first home buyers. First home buyers are still disadvantaged, with house prices still continuing to rise in Kapiti, so we are seeing a slowing of these buyers being able to secure a property.
Trademe is recently jumped up considerably to over 400 properties for sale for the Kapiti Coast (Paekakariki to Otaki), having sat at around the 200 mark for several months previously, however, still incredible when you consider that over the years Kapiti would regularly sit at roughly 1,200 properties for sale.
We are seeing buyers coming from all parts of New Zealand to Kapiti, and ex-Kiwi’s living overseas coming back or purchasing sight-unseen and intending to come back within the next couple of years. While demand outstrips supply, it has never been a better market to sell.
