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.
Million dollar home sales in Auckland dipped by 1.9% in the first half of 2018 compared to the first 6 months of 2017, but jumped by 28% around the rest of the country.
The Real Estate Institute seized on winter as the cause of a drop in house sales, but not of prices, in June.
The median residential sale price in Auckland fell again in May compared to a year earlier, but was up $2000 from April, the Real Estate Institute said yesterday.
