Experience the epitome of luxurious living at the meticulously crafted rebuild of the large character villa at 22 Mays Street, Devonport. This home is exceptional, finished to the highest standards and nestled in an elevated position boasting beautiful views of the harbour and city skyline.

As you step into the home, you will be greeted by the elegance of contemporary luxury, thoughtfully modernized to embrace the wonderful views, the comforts and conveniences of contemporary living, creating an ambiance that is both timeless and welcoming.

This home offers a unique opportunity to the discerning buyer. The renovation was undertaken to create a “forever home” for my vendors and their family. An overseas work opportunity which will take them out of New Zealand for a number of years has resulted in the newly completed home being offered to the market. The interiors are a testament to thoughtful planning and expert craftsmanship, whether you’re relaxing in one of the three separate living rooms, unwinding in the huge master suite, immersing yourself in work in the spacious office, or watching a movie in the dedicated media room, every corner offers sophistication and comfort.

Outside, professionally landscaped gardens, lead to an inviting in-ground swimming pool, the double garage and ample off-street parking ensure convenience and ease for your lifestyle needs.

Housing market shows positive signs

The Real Estate Institute (REINZ) released its March 2024 data in mid-April, showing a significant increase in listings and stock levels, creating more options for buyers.

Chief Executive Jen Baird said the market is clearly more active compared to a year ago, with high listing numbers, increased stock levels, higher sales counts, and higher median sale prices.

“Listings increased substantially, up by 23.9% nationally compared with March 2023, reinforcing a trend we have seen since the beginning of 2024 with more property coming to market. New Zealand's stock levels also saw a year-on-year increase, which means more available properties for sale and more choices for buyers. Agents are seeing activity among a range of buyer groups, with first-home buyers and owner occupiers being the most active.”

to 6,521. Only Northland (-1.9%) and Otago (-6.3%) recorded decreased sales activity compared with March 2023.

The national median sale price increased by 2.7% from $779,000 to $800,000.

“This is the second consecutive month recording a year-on-year increase in the median sale price nationally. This, along with the increased year-on-year levels of sales and listings, suggests that we are past the lowest point of this market cycle.”

Median days to sell decreased by six days compared to a year ago, from 44 to 38 days.

Overall, the data paints a picture of the New Zealand housing market being more active, characterised by increasing listings, solid sales activity, expanding stock levels, and lifts in property prices.

Listings in Auckland were up 986 listings (+31.4%). New Zealand’s inventory levels have increased overall by 13.5% from 29,284 to 33,245 properties year-on-yearthe highest level since 2015.

The total number of properties sold in New Zealand increased in March (+7.4%) compared to February 2024, from 6,073 to 6,521, and up 8.0% year-on-year, from 6,040

“This summer has seen a return to a more normal level of real estate market activity after a relatively slow and subdued 2023. Reasons for this will vary, for example, some vendors may prefer not to wait any longer and are willing to ‘meet the market’ with their price expectations. Some buyers may want to act now ahead of potential further lifts in sale prices or potential increased competition for properties, as upcoming changes to bring the bright line test back to two years, and the reintroduction of interest deductibility on investment properties, are expected to draw some investors back to the market in the next few months.

“The current economic environment with higher interest rates and some uncertainty in the jobs market will mean some buyers remain cautious, with prices still off their peaks from a couple of years ago, however growing numbers of buyers are acting now. Most agents are cautiously

optimistic that market activity will continue to pick up as we move into the cooler months,” added Baird.

The median house price for the North Shore in March 2024 was $1,232,000, up from the median house price in March 2023, which was $1,145,000. The number of homes sold on the North Shore in March 2024 was 317, versus 305 homes sold in March 2023.

Pretty good news for both buyers and sellers at the moment.
