3 Key reasons in Auckland’s house prices

Auckland’s median house price has hit $1 million for the first time and October 2020 will go down in the housing history records. Nationally the house prices have also risen by 20 per cent in a year. This does make it hard for the first home buyers, but surprisingly with interest rates as low as ever people are still buying to get on to the property ladder.

People were expecting recession with this global pandemic situation we have on our hands right now, but it looks like we are far from recession and rising more then ever. Auckland movers have been busy moving kiwis into their new homes.

So, what are some of the reasons Auckland properties are rising at such speed?

  1. Loan to value restrictions (LVR) These are temporary limits on the banks to bring down the amount of low deposit mortgage lending. In April 2020 reserve bank announced the removal of LVR restrictions and now in November reserve bank has put this back up for investors.
  2. Lower interest rates The interest you pay on the loan you take out from the bank to pay for your property. It is the lowest it has ever been and trending to be lower by April next year.
  3. Shortage of houses Currently the shortfall of houses in Auckland alone is estimated to be at 28,000 over the past decade. Declining as we have more New Zealanders returning home and net migration rising in Auckland with 40,000 people per year and more migration rise expected next year after Covid-19.

The rise in the properties could be to do with interest rates being low, LVR restrictions being removed, shortage of houses and maybe New Zealanders returning home during this pandemic. It is range of things that are the reason for the inflation in housing and not just one.

Some landowners are selling properties even if they did not plan to sell this year, just because of the rise and profit seen in selling the house. So, with less houses on the market it drives a lot of attention and properties are being snatched day to day.

The property that is getting the most unexpected rise in value is the one with land and area that has the future to be developed. Developers are buying properties left right and centre for future development. It is said to be the best time to sell if you have properties or you are looking to move out of Auckland.

This is also the year for real estate agents as they are selling properties and getting higher commission then expected. At this point they do not have to go out and look for people looking to sell their home or people buying properties. People are approaching real estate agents themselves. Indeed, a great year for the property agents.

With so many properties being sold, it is expected that a lot of people will be on the move prior to Christmas and in start of the new year 2021. So at this time furniture movers Auckland will be as busy as ever before and this could be the right time to book it in advance if you are looking to move houses soon.

Let’s hope this global pandemic is over sooner than later and we are all able to travel again and see our families across the world. New Zealand currently is safe and surviving the pandemic, but you never know when it could re appear in the community. So, let’s all stay united and keep fighting through bad times like this and come out stronger.

3 important things to consider when building your new home

When it comes to building your own home that you have dreamed of and saved up for, it takes great planning and timing. One most important tip is to calculate your numbers and make up a budget that involves minimum risk, which will avoid any down sides if any come up during the build.

This blog will cover some of the most important things you will need to keep in mind when you think about building your own home. Once your building stage is complete then get in touch with your local furniture movers in Auckland for all your furniture removals needs.

#1 – Plan your budget

First thing is first of course, and you cannot start building without having a budget calculated. So, start your calculation and put together the cost you think it will take to build your new home. Keep in mind that you might not be able to cover all the costs when you do run some numbers.

To cover the costs, you may miss, you will need to have set aside a spare budget or available cash that will be needed to help keeping the project going. This is important because once you have a project running you do not want it to stop, as the cost for it to stop and re-arrange things is much higher than you would have planned.

Finally, if it does all go to plan then you will have this extra budget set a side that you could use for other important things. Take a look at this building guide for a rough estimate of costs when building in NZ.

#2 – Select the right builder

Selecting the right builder to build your dream home is very important as this is one of the factors where plans fail due to the relationship downfalls with the builder. So be very careful and do some research if you do not have a builder that you can trust.

Have multiple tenders ensuring each builder can justify the costs they have provided. Have face to face meetings with the builder to know that you can fully trust and feel comfortable with him/her. They need to be asking the right questions in order to understand you and your needs.

Then once you are comfortable select the right build plan ensuring that you are not just going for the cheapest one just because it is cheap. Do not compromise quality and build with having reselling value in mind in case you end up not liking the house you built, and it does not fit your needs.

#3 – Cut some costs with DIY

If you are good at DIY, then it is worth while looking at some of the costs you can drop. Some things you may not be able to do yourself as they require sign offs by engineers and things need to be certified.

DIY can help you significantly if towards the end of your build you are starting to run very low on your budget and this does happen quite a lot. So, things like carrying out the paint work and building the deck can be part of your DIY.

These are only some of the things to be taken into consideration when building a new home, of course a lot more is involved, and it is a complex project. Before you commit you need to be sure that you can carry out the project till the very end. Plan and choose wisely.

Lastly, stay safe during this level 3 Covid-19 lockdown in Auckland and when your build is over do not forget to choose the very best furniture movers in Auckland to help with your move.

Happy moving everyone 😊

We are going to be entering 2020 in about a month and a bit. This time of the year could be a very busy time as work load picks up and people are out buying gifts and what not for the Christmas and New Year’s. The month of December is full of parties organised by work, friends, family and etc. It is the perfect time for summer vacation as well due to all businesses closing over the Christmas and New Year’s period.

The house can become a mess over the summer period and especially if you have kids and on top of that organise a party at home! So let’s share some tips on keeping the house clean over this period and help ease up the cleaning required after.

MAKE A SCHEDULE

To have a cleaning schedule will really help you throughout the summer period for keeping your house up to date and clean. Create something like a “Weekly Cleaning List” and specify day to day cleaning tasks. See reference below.

Weekly Cleaning List

Every Day Wipe down kitchen counters, wash the dishes, wipe bathroom sinks, sweep/vacuum main living areas, make beds etc.

Friday Wash laundry load if any, Vacuum if necessary
Weekend Relax, Organise a party, chill outside in the sun

 

Some of you might already have a list of cleaning weekly stuck to your fridge. Do not forget to amend that list and use it over the coming summer period when you might need it the most. When everyone is home over the summer vacation the house is bound to be messy and it requires cleaning almost every day and lacking behind in your schedule might just take over and you will be left with a very messy house towards the end of the vacation and a lot to clean afterwards.

KEEP THE WORK LIGHT

The main focus is to keep the work very light and space it out over the week. But do give yourself a break in between and over the weekends when you should take this time to spend it with the loved ones and party. To help ease up the workload try and involve the kids to do a cleaning job. You might even put assign cleaning tasks on you weekly cleaning list to the kids and this way it will be much easier for you. It will give all of the family more of a break and even workload will be shared amongst the family.

HAVE A GRACE PERIOD

Don’t be too hard on yourself. You do not have to do exactly what the list says and the list is there to be amended as per your requirements for that day. It is not a strict rule you should follow but just a simple guideline to assure that you keep your house clean. Spend the time with your kids as you may not get the chance to when they grow older and leave home. Make beautiful memories with the family and keep life balanced. Happy moving everyone 🙂

Renovations could include variety of things such as re-painting, extending, changing the layout, changing the flooring etc. Before you start your renovations, consider thinking about these points listed below.

Sketch out a plan

Sketch out the renovations you want to do on a plain white piece of paper. This does not matter if you are an architect, it is a simple plan of your house and the way you want it laid out post renovation. Put your thoughts to the paper, think of the how you want the space to look and how it shall function. You might want to consider having a chit chat to your friends and get some ideas.

Have options in place so that if not satisfied change it on the spot without further research. The plan can also help you when you get contractors to come and do the work. They will appreciate that you have done your research and hence make the job much faster and simpler.

Have your resource and building consent ready

After you have thought of a reasonable budget then add on an extra 10 percent to your total to be safe.

Moving out or staying

Are you going to be moving out of your home or staying during the home renovation? Moving out means that you will be paying extra rent for the house you will be staying while you do renovations. This might work in your favour if you are looking to save time as an empty house is much easier to renovate having different contractors in at the same time to get more done. Staying in might take the renovations a bit longer but you will be able to keep track and save up on the extra rent you will have to pay if you move out.
