The Taupo Real Estate Market Report – The Bayleys Taupo Difference

February 2020


High summer witnessed a very busy local market place with some 71 recorded housing sales together with 31 unconditional section sales. Whilst the monthly median price point eased off the previous month’s spike, the annual moving median remained steady at $546, 500, some 9% ahead of the same time last year. As mentioned month section sales were buoyed by the issue of title in stage 4 Wharewaka East, with a total of 31 section sales across the market were recorded. As we write, the world is coming to grips with a global pandemic, the impact and duration of which nobody can accurately predict, so I dare say let’s stay safe and carry on!
