Thank You.

It's been a busy month for Harcourts and we just want to take the time to thank all our valued customers for trusting Harcourts with your most valued asset. We really do appreciate it.

Trust is one of the most important factors in buying and selling property. That's why I'm extremely proud, that for the sixth consecutive year, New Zealanders have voted Harcourts their most trusted real estate brand. Thank you -we couldn't have done it without you.

The award is treasured by everyone who works for Harcourts, so to be chosen again as the most trusted is very humbling.

We know the decision to sell your home is incredibly important and one of the biggest financial transactions you will ever make. We don't take that lightly, and will continue to work extremely hard to deliver you the best possible price and the kind of service that will make you choose us again.

So, for those future customers, who are thinking about bringing their property to the market, please feel free to contact anyone of our fantastic team. Whether you are dreaming of your first house, your family is outgrowing your home or you just want to sell up and move on, Harcourts Hawke's Bay is here to help. No matter where you move, why you move, or how often you move - you can trust us to be 'with you all the way'.

 

Kind Regards

The latest data from the QV House Price Index shows that Hawke’s Bay is bucking the trends when compared to other areas of New Zealand. According to their data, Napier property values have grown 17.6% in the last year with Hastings also having strong property value growth of 12.5% over the past year. This is great news for property owners in The Bay

this comes as no surprise when you consider the number of factors making the Bay an attractive place to work, live and play. These include good, ongoing enquiry from buyers from outside the region, particularly Auckland, and a dynamic Hawke’s Bay Economy.

On a local level, our team are still experiencing large numbers of buyers at Open Homes with this increased enquiry leading to a number of properties attracting multiple offers, which in turn helps to drive premium prices.

Agents are also talking with a number of buyers considering downsizing to not only free up capital but to also free up leisure time in order to enjoy all that Hawke’s Bay has to offer. So, all in all this is good news for Home Owners in The Bay.

if you’re thinking about your next property move, talk with our team. We’re more than happy to provide you with a free equity assessment. If the timing is right for you, we’ll ensure your property receives the maximum exposure it deserves – exposure that is a key factor in helping to achieve a premium price for your biggest asset.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a wonderful May and take care.

This summer I’ve been reminded what a fantastic place Hawke’s Bay is to work, live and play. The weather has been consistently superb and the region has been buzzing with visitors enjoying all the exceptional experiences the Bay has to offer.
At Harcourts, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional experiences to our valued customers and at the core of this experience is helping vendors get maximum value for their property.
In a cluttered marketing landscape, one of the key factors in delivering maximum value, is exposing your property to as many potential buyers as possible. A powerful way of achieving this is through an integrated marketing campaign using a combination of channels. A cornerstone of any integrated marketing campaign is online.
So, when you’re considering listing your property, ensure you ask about online coverage. At Harcourts we’re pleased to share, that the latest Neilson Online Ratings have identified that the Harcourts Website has again had a higher unique audience than any other Real Estate Group. What does that mean? It means that when you list with Harcourts you’re getting maximum online exposure for your property - exposure that is essential in helping to secure maximum value.
That’s just one of the many benefits of entrusting your biggest asset with New Zealand’s most trusted real estate company. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to give us a call.

Hawke’s Bay is wonderful place to work, live and play and it’s an incredible privilege to call Hawke’s Bay home. There are many things that make this region great, but at its core are the people, community and organisations who work tirelessly to make our region special.

One of these organisations is Cranford Hospice. Harcourts Luxury Property Selection is proud to be the Auction Partner for The Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction, which raises funds for Cranford. It’s an absolute honour to be able to support Cranford Hospice and we are in awe of the work that they do, as is everyone who has been touched by Hospice and their wonderful team.

We are also excited that the Harcourts Foundation has partnered with Hospice New Zealand to launch the Hospice Grants Programme. To start the programme the Foundation has donated $55,000 and pledged ongoing support. The Foundation is the embodiment of what it means to be part of Harcourts and really is at the heart of our core values – people first, doing the right thing, being courageous and fun and laughter.

Supporting fantastic community initiatives such as these are a great way to give back to our wonderful region. The Harcourts Foundation has raised more than $5 million dollars for communities - It’s our way of providing support to the communities that support us. If you’d like to know more, check out the Harcourts Foundation online.

Thank you to all our fantastic customers for your ongoing support, If you’re thinking of selling, or would like information on how Harcourts Hawke’s Bay can work for you and your property, please feel free to give myself or one of our agents a call.
