Lodge Real Estate (Hamilton) Ltd managing director Jeremy O’Rourke says growth of the IT sector is lifting sales at the upper end of Hamilton’s housing market, while more young Aucklanders are also finding homes in their lower price bracket in the city.

The Real Estate Institute’s statistics for April, out today, show the median house sale price in Auckland unchanged from a year ago, but down from March.
The Real Estate Institute said today home sales nationally were down 12.9% in March compared to a year ago.
House sales in February were down 9.5% nationally from a year ago, from 6576 to 5954, the Real Estate Institute said yesterday.
The Real Estate Institute said today the median house price for Auckland was higher this August than last – the first time in 6 months the 2018 price has been higher.
The house sale price trend continued in July: Auckland down slightly, rest of the country well up, so an increase nationally.
