The Taupo Real Estate Market Report – The Bayleys Taupo Difference

August 2019


The last official month of winter produced a very good month in the local real estate market where a total of 59 house sales were recorded, together with a further 16 section sales. The monthly moving median increased to $525,000 on an annual median figure of $515,166, very much in line with the trend over the last year or so. Section data continues to benefit from new titles issuing around various new developments, with the monthly median recorded at $275,000 on an annualised figure of $251,014. Overall the market continues to perform in a very consistent manner, with perhaps the only blip being the increase in median days to sell, which although slipping back to 52 days from 40 days the previous month is still a fairly positive outcome as we approach the traditional spring time lift.
