134 Rowses Road, Aranui Botched repair - Now “As Is” • Looks good, feels good - but it’s just not as it should be. This property was previously repaired under the Canterbury Home Repair Programme but the remediation has been deemed substandard and the vendors have subsequently been cash settled by their insurer. • Floor level variations of up to 68mm in the dwelling and 92mm in the garage are measurable but not discernible. Despite being outside of MBIE guidelines the repairs that have been undertaken have resulted in the home being tidy and very habitable. The vendors own betterment has further improved the 1973 build with partial double glazing, LED lighting and a substantial heatpump. • The site is well established with mature trees and shrubs and offers a vista to the southeast across Bexley Reserve. French doors lead from the separate lounge onto a sunning north-facing deck, and a sliding door transitions from the dining area to a sheltered patio courtyard and pergola. The double garage provides ample vehicle storage and workshop space, and there is additional off-street parking available.

Andrew Swift NEW BRIGHTON

• If you are looking for an entry-level step onto the property ladder or have the skills to complete the repair and add equity, then this property is well worthy of consideration.

Interior Design Trends in 2018

Sage Green

“2018 will be about anything but neutral tones. Things are moving in a bold direction. Reds, strong blues and vibrant greens, in particular. People have tired of neutral, sometimes boring palettes. This is officially your incentive to push the boundaries of pattern and color. While neutral shades should still make up a portion of your design, in 2018 it looks like we’ll see them take much more of a background position. You can either go big with statement furniture or use these shades throughout your accessories. In particular, rugs, throw pillows and blankets are a great way to get in on the trend without feeling overly committed.

Vintage accessories “Curating old and vintage accessories and art to tell a story. Whether it’s your home or a hotel, mixing found items, books and art into your space creates a unique and personal experience. One-of-a-kind items are easily accessible these days, from social media channels through to antique shops!” KELLIE SIRNA, STUDIO 11 DESIGN Design should be anything but boring. We love the idea of this vintage accessories trend because it allows you to give your designs a little something special, a built-in showpiece and potential focal point. We suggest doing some research to see which era of design you connect with the most and using those types of accessories as your inspiration.

Darker and mixed finishes “Brass is making a comeback and overtaking the ubiquitous rose gold.” SARAH HULLINGER, HIRSCH BEDNER ASSOCIATES

“I see a continued affection for mixing metal finishes in all areas, from furniture, kitchen and bathroom fixtures to lighting, cabinet hardware and accessories. Copper, bronze, brass, satin brass, gold and black nickel now all work together and are interchangeable.” JULIET GOLD, JULIET GOLD DESIGN

If you’re going to go this route, remember to pick one dominant metal to carry the room and to use the others as accents. You should also be sure to match the finishes on each type of metal to help pull them together visually.

Wide-plank woods “The popularity of wider planks has been on the rise. As homeowners are trading out conventional widths for more expansive planks, 5-inch wide planks have become the new classic. Wider planks represent a return to a more rustic or vintage look and there is a strong trend towards random width installations.” SARA BABINSKI OF ARMSTRONG FLOORING

Wider planks are the perfect choice for those who prefer rustic or industrial aesthetics. They have a way of providing the room with a sense of history and charm that is rarely found in more massengineered looks. Additionally, even though the wood will probably be fairly neutral, the wide planks will add a subtle pop of visual interest to the room.


Colour Trends in 2018 Copper & Metallics

Ultra Violet 18-3838

PANTONE

Ultra Violet Pantone's 2018 color of the year is undeniably bold and beautiful. The company describes its pick as a "dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade" and we agree. Marigold We’re obsessed with this mustard yellow color It has a retro ’70s vibe that infuses any space with happiness

Blush

“Aspirational” spaces “I believe we will see a shift toward designing spaces based on how people want to feel. At home, people are done feeling the pressure to impress their friends. They don’t want a generic home that looks like a magazine. People are ready to get crystal clear on how they want to feel at home — and they will make design choices from there. Whether it’s ‘relaxed’ or ‘energized’ or ‘intimate’ or ‘professional’ - spaces have the power to help us feel the way we want to feel in our lives.” ANNIE KIP, ANNIE KIP STYLE + DESIGN

With this trend, we’re seeing even more emphasis on design freedoms. Here, instead of relying on conventions or pre-determined sets of rules for a particular aesthetic, you truly have the ability to create a one-of-a-kind space that suits who you are and what you want the room to accomplish. How cool is that?

GOLD LIVING

Dubbed “millennial pink” by The Cut, the peach-salmon hybrid refuses to go away. Not too juvenile, or too twee, or too sweet, it acts like a neutral.

Caliente Strong, radiant, and full of energy, Caliente is total confidence. It is pleasing, passionate and makes people feel special, like ‘red carpet treatment.’

Oceanside People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it’s making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes. Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes.

Market Comment Here in Christchurch we saw an 8% growth in available stock numbers this last month in comparison to a year ago, and it is this extra availability of stock that provides us with more sales opportunities, and as a consequence, sales also increased by 12% in comparison to April last year.

JIM DAVIS

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER AREINZ HARCOURTS

The release of the REINZ statistics for April continue to show how strong and steady our Real Estate market is in New Zealand and Christchurch. Across the country there is still an obvious healthy appetite for Real Estate and the REINZ figures show us that sales volumes and listing volumes are still strong and steady with some areas still showing good steady increases . Here in Christchurch we saw an 8% growth in available stock numbers this last month in comparison to a year ago, and it is this extra availability of stock that provides us with more sales opportunities, and as a consequence, sales also increased by 12% in comparison to April last year. From a Real Estate perspective this is good for Christchurch, the last thing we all either want or need is a market that is going bad. There is no doubt that for most of us, our wealth and value is tied up in property. For this reason, it is pleasing to see some of the rhetoric and media commentary around containing a rampant housing market in New Zealand has abated. It is noticeable that even the Reserve Bank are making media statements that they see no reason to change the official cash rate in the near future or for major intervention now that we are seeing a strong but more importantly stable market conditions across the country. There is little doubt that Auckland prices are steadier now in comparison to recent times and there has been

little price movement for a few months now, while here in Christchurch we had our boom prices two years ago and we have seen minimal movement since as we all know. The median sale price for April is stated at $447,500 while two years ago it was $450,000. Here in Christchurch it’s noticeable the steady property values have encouraged the first home buyers back into the market, obviously assisted by the relaxing of the LVR’s earlier this year. If further proof of our local steady stable market is required, look no further than the HPI (housing price index) for Christchurch, currently it’s measured at 2349 while 4 months ago it was 2350. So where to from here? As already mentioned and well documented - New Zealand is in quite a healthy position currently. Our economy is strong, interest rates are low and not expected to rise, immigration is steady, unemployment is at an all time low level, and we still have a large housing shortage that wont be going away in the near future. This all sounds reasonably good however we do have a couple of looming spectra’s that could potentially have a softening effect at least for a short time. Most punters see a Capital Gains Tax as inevitable, literally it’s just a case of when. This government shows all the signs that it will be sooner rather than later (watch next week’s budget announcement), Capital gains Taxes exist in some countries overseas and

while personally we don’t want to see it introduced, I think most of New Zealand will be unaffected provided it is not levelled on the family home. The other possibility and this is one we are led to believe is dear to the heart of the Reserve Bank, is the possible introduction of a debt to income loan ratio, there is no doubt that will slow down borrowings and has the propensity to change the landscape going forward. Currently however with the market locally and nationally no longer the rampant beast it once was, the government may be a little wary of introducing any new legislation that could have a further slowing down effect on our national wellbeing, particularly when they have something like the mycoplasma Bovis issue, showing signs of potentially having a major effect on our biggest earner; the dairy industry. In the mean time it is very much steady as she goes with good stable signs indicating we are in for a good winter market here in the Canterbury region. If you want the opportunity to exceed your expectations then you need to be talking with the best and largest Real Estate team in Christchurch, quite simply ‘more salespeople, mean more eyes are on your property, which gives you more opportunity to sell and exceed your expectations, and here at Harcourts we like doing that for our clients.

GOLD CHAT Lynette McFadden

Harcourts Gold Business Owner Harcourts NZ Inspirational Women Ambassador

It used to be that business leadership really consisted of business ownership. Whoever owned the business called the shots, set the tempo and determined the culture. They were seen as the nucleus of the whole business. At its best this worked because they intuitively knew their people, product or service, and how to get the best out of everyone. At the other end of the spectrum you had a potential powder keg. Leaders are not necessarily born. All of us have probably experienced leaders at both ends of this continuum and leadership remains the most important whilst perplexing source of business success. If you do even the simplest of google searches on the word leadership, two things stand out. Firstly, there are literally millions of references to leadership and leaders, with not only the latest international thinking on the subject, but the corniest. And secondly, surprisingly it feels a very masculine space. The accompanying synonyms provided for leadership were guidance, direction, authority, control, captaincy, mastery and management. I don’t know about you but the words

I associate with leadership are less about control and mastery, and more about vision, inspiration, motivation, communication and hard work! So why this focus at the moment? It could be the upcoming TED like talk I have to deliver later in the month and it’s also due to a pending real estate conference I’m attending where Kevin Roberts will be presenting. Kevin’s words and thinking on leadership are a major influence for me as are Gilbert Enoka’s. The leadership skills required by anyone running a successful business are always under the microscope. The measure of this when performed well can be awards, accolades and trophies. The real measure is tenure, loyalty, brand awareness and support and people feeling valued whilst achieving their dreams. As an industry and a brand Harcourts are heading into awards season. To the public this complicated field where everyone claims to be the best, shiniest, most outstanding person or company must be confusing. I’m hoping the leadership qualities we’ve been able to bring to our part of this large international brand will give this

more substance and credibility when applied to our company. I’ve also believed leaders push boundaries, create value, show the way and always, always do their best. With having the top 2 offices out of 24 in Canterbury ,the top 2 consultants and 10 consultants in the top 30, I’m quietly giving thanks and grateful that we’re getting some of this right, and leadership is a big part of this.

Here’s something that resonates as a leader:

“Lofty goals are everywhere. The strategy to achieve them is less common; and a wellexecuted plan is surprisingly rare.” HANNAH MCQUEEN
