The Real Estate Market Has Turned


It's been quite a difficult time for people looking to buy houses for sale in Wanganui over the last few years given that house prices have risen so dramatically. Property for sale in Wanganui has certainly been in such short supply. People searching online for Wanganui real estate for sale will be pleasantly surprised because the real estate market is now very different.


  • Housing stock has nearly doubled in just a few months

  • Properties are taking longer to sell

  • There has been an influx of price reductions

There is now far more property for sale in Wanganui and more houses for sale in Marton than there have been for quite some time. But there is no doubt that good, well priced real estate in Wanganui is still being snapped up fast. This is partly a seasonal variation now that the season has changed, but overall buyers should start to hear even better news about home prices in Whanganui as interest rates increase. Marton real estate is trucking along well but properties are taking longer to sell even though Marton real estate is still a great investment as well. Property for sale in Marton and Whanganui has become sought after because property in the major centres like Auckland and Wellington have simply become unaffordable and people are also looking for a better lifestyle, which Whanganui/Wanganui offers. Similarly, the same could be said for finding houses for sale in Marton, Bulls or Waverley which are close by.

A really good reason that it may be a good time to buy a house in Whanganui right now is that the real estate market has continued to perform strongly throughout the last decade. You can feel safe knowing there is not going to be a crash any time soon, even though there may be a dip. This seems to be a trend with no signs of stopping as these regional areas continue to be popular and prosper after a long time of decline. Another good reason is the relatively low cost associated with investing in real estate Wanganui as investment property yields are generally much higher here than in the major centres. You can often buy multiple units and have them for the same price as a house in some instances. If you were making a property investment, there is always land for sale Wanganui but you would need to find a developer or a builder to build, which is always an option. But there have been several new subdivisions coming onto the market in recent times. There are also farms for sale Wanganui, Waverley, Marton & Bulls but these are in limited supply. This presents an opportunity for you to invest in your future, create wealth for your family and give them a lifestyle they will enjoy.
