Real estate agent, Barfoot & Thompson, reported yesterday that the average price of homes sold in Auckland increased by $41,590 or 7.7 percent in 2012 to $584,715 when compared to 2011’s average price.

Peter Thompson, Managing Director of Barfoot & Thompson, said December 2012 was one of the best with 920 sales in the month at an average price of $624,015, the highest number of sales in a December for eight years.

“The average price achieved remained high, with it being down less than $4000 on November’s all-time record average price of $627,721,” Mr Thompson said.

“The average price for each of the past three months has now exceeded $600,000, setting a new benchmark.”

For Auckland residents wanting to sell their home at a good price, now is the time with Barfoot & Thompson predicting prices will remain high in the first half of 2013.
