listings. Now we are moving into spring the weather is warming up, days getting longer and owners are getting a chance to get out and tidy up the gardens, it can be a great time to consider selling. The warmer weather seems to bring buyers out, they are motivated after a cold winter to move into a newer more energy efficient home. If you are looking to sell this side of Christmas, then I strongly recommend you talk with an agent now.

The standard answer is, anytime, as properties do sell year round. The better question would be “when am I likely to sell the quickest and for the highest price”. Answer - when there a lot of buyers out and not a lot of competing properties on the market. The laws of supply and demand in the end, work out the market value of any home.

REINZ

Current market reflects traditional Data released today by the Real Estate Institute of NZ (“REINZ”) shows there were 74 more farm sales (+16.9%) for the three months ended July 2014 than for the three months ended July 2013. Overall, there were 512 farm sales in the three months to end of July 2014, compared to 544 farm sales for the three months ended June 2014 (-5.9%). 1,923 farms were sold in the year to July 2014, 25.2% more than were sold in the year to July 2013. The median price per hectare for all farms sold in the three months to July 2014 was $26,680 compared to $20,667 recorded for three months ended July 2013 (+29.1%). The median price per hectare rose 2.6% compared to June. The REINZ All Farm Price Index fell 5.7% in the three months to July compared to the three months to June, moving from 3,405.7 to 3,212.9. Compared to July 2013 the REINZ All Farm Price Index rose by 8.8%. The REINZ All Farm Price Index adjusts for differences in farm size, location and farming type compared to the median price per hectare, which does not adjust for these factors. 10 regions recorded increases in sales volume for the three months ended July 2014 compared to the three months ended July 2013. Canterbury recorded the largest increase in sales (+18 sales), followed by Nelson (+16 sales) and Northland, Auckland and Bay of Plenty all with an increase of 11 sales each. Compared to the three months ended June 2014, four regions

recorded an increase in sales. “While annual statistics confirm a solid increase in volumes and prices over the past 12 months, three monthly figures to the end of July indicate an easing in both volumes and prices”, says REINZ Rural Spokesman Brian Peacocke, “Apart from a small burst of activity in Westland, and as expected at this time of year when peak workloads dominate all other activity, dairy farm sales have virtually come to a standstill.” “By contrast, sales of finishing and grazing properties have maintained some momentum, with reasonable enquiry for beef farms in the north, for dairy support properties through the centre of the country, and for sheep, beef properties and diary support farms in the lower south. Sales in the horticultural sector have been steady during the three months to July.” Grazing properties accounted for the largest number of sales with 43.9% share of all sales over the three months to July, Finishing properties accounted for 20.5%, Dairy properties accounted for 9.2% and Horticulture properties accounted for 10.9% of all sales. These four property types accounted for 84.6% of all sales during the three months ended July 2014. Dairy Farms For the three months ended July 2014 the median sales price per hectare for dairy farms was $36,673 (47 properties), compared to $33,543, for the three months ended June (69 properties), and $34,882 (47 properties) for the three months ended July 2013. The median dairy farm size for the three months ended July 2014 was 111 hectares. Included in sales for the month of July were six dairy farms at a median sale value of $27,491 per hectare. The median farm size was 89 hectares with a range of 41 hectares in the

Waikato region to 636 hectares in Westland. The median production per hectare across all dairy farms sold in July 2014 was 650 kgs of milk solids. The REINZ Dairy Farm Price Index fell by 1.2% in the three months to July compared to the three months to June, from 1,956.4 to 1,932.0. Compared to July 2013, the REINZ Dairy Farm Price Index rose by 8.7%. The REINZ Dairy Farm Price Index adjusts for differences in farm size and location compared to the median price per hectare, which does not adjust for these factors. Finishing Farms For the three months ended July 2014 the median sale price per hectare for finishing farms was $27,907 (105 properties), compared to $26,694 for the three months ended June (115 properties), and $22,500 (109 properties) for the three months ended July 2013. The median finishing farm size for the three months ended July 2014 was 44 hectares. Grazing Farms For the three months ended July 2014 the median sales price per hectare for grazing farms was $15,500 (225 properties) compared to $15,833 for the three months ended June (236 properties), and $15,367 (193 properties) for the three months ended July 2013. The median grazing farm size for the three months ended July 2014 was 65 hectares. Horticulture Farms For the three months ended July 2014 the median sales price per hectare for horticulture farms was $134,640 (56 properties) compared to $193,745 (57 properties) for the three months ended June, and $100,667 (39 properties) for the three months ended July 2013. The median horticulture farm size for the three months ended July 2014 was eight hectares.

Lifestyle Properties The lifestyle property market saw a 13.5% fall (-242 sales) in sales volume in the three months to July 2014 compared to July 2013. 1,548 sales were recorded in the three months to July 2014 compared to 1,790 sales in the three months to July 2013. 24 fewer sales were recorded compared to the three months to June 2014 (-1.5%). For the 12 months to July 2014 there were 6,400 unconditional sales of lifestyle properties, an increase of 0.5% (+32 sales) over the 12 months to July 2013. Just one region recorded an increase in sales compared to July 2013 while 12 recorded decreases in sales. Compared to June, six regions recorded an increase in sales with seven regions recording decreases. The national median price for lifestyle blocks rose by $36,000 (+7.5%) from $488,500 for the three months to July 2013 to $525,000 for the three months to July 2014. The median price for lifestyle blocks in Auckland rose by $67,500 (+8.1%) from $830,000 for the three months to July 2013 to $897,500 for the three months to July 2014. Over the same time period for the three months ending July, the median price rose by 2.4% in Waikato to $486,500, and fell by 12.3% in Canterbury to $527,500. Compared to June 2014, the National median sales price rose by $10,000 (+1.9%) to $525,000. The number of days to sell for lifestyle properties eased by six days, from 74 days for the three months to the end of June to 80 days for the three months to the end of July. Compared to the three months ended July 2013 the number of days to sell eased by eight days from 72 days to 80 days. Gisborne recorded the shortest number of days to sell in July at 44 days, followed by Canterbury at 57 days and Auckland at 58 days. West

Dahlias Dahlias: the perfect summer romance After a blossoming romance this summer? Let me introduce you to the delightful dahlia. If you’ve had enough of those needy, highmaintenance varieties, dahlia might just be the fresh start you’re after. After all, this vibrant plant isn’t looking for much – just a dry, exposed area of your garden with well-drained soil. It’s also partial to being placed in the middle of a simple pot where the soil is also dry. If it’s colour you’re looking for, our dahlia has it in spades – reds, oranges, yellows and pinks... in fact, most hues except blue. And if that isn’t appealing enough for you, the Mexican native is also a resilient young thing, which tends to fend off diseases with ease. Interested? Simply grab a few Awapuni Nurseries bedding dahlia seedlings from your local supermarket, or garden centre. Or order some from our online shop at www.awapuni.co.nz and get them delivered direct to your door.

To get started, dig a small hole and plant your seedling. Space each plant about 200mm apart. Then sit back, play it cool, and in about eight weeks you’ll be rewarded with an array of floral fervour that will last the entire summer – even when it’s hot and dry. Pick off any dead heads to encourage flowering and, as long as you’ve chosen the right spot for planting, your dahlia will get to about 200mm high. Worried you may not be the perfect match for your plant? Don’t worry – the dahlia will get plenty of long-time love if placed next to lavender, delphiniums, irises and roses. It also works well if you’re on the rebound from spring bulbs, flowering about the same time as your bulbs die down. Oh, and one last thing: if you want to treat your dahlia to be a bit of something extra special – try a touch of fertiliser or compost. Tod Palenski Awapuni Nurseries www.awapuni.co.nz

What's on

Dining in the building is an experience in itself. Steeped in history, it was first built in 1898 as a bank and it has served the community in this capacity for the vast majority of its existence. At over 100 years old, its transformation to a Speight's Ale House has ensured it continues to command its

place in local history and in the hearts (and stomachs) of locals.
