If you own a property in Auckland, now is the perfect time to sell, according to new data from Barfoot & Thompson.

The number of residential properties sold across Auckland during March increased 80% from February to 1,392 properties sold, indicating the second-busiest March since 2007, according to the report.

Auckland residential property prices also saw a 7% increase during March (compared to February’s prices), with average house prices reaching $725,708.

“March is traditionally the busiest month in the property calendar, so it is no surprise that we saw a significant increase in residential sales when compared to the previous month,” said Barfoot & Thompson Chief Executive Officer, Wendy Alexander.

“New listings for the month were the highest in any March for six years, and there is a wide range of properties coming through on our listings.”

Alexander also said demand for property across wider Auckland will remain strong for the foreseeable future, and properties are selling quickly because they are priced sensibly to meet the market.
