Hot areas of the Auckland Market

2020 has been confusing for many people, and it left many wondering whether to save their money or to invest in property in the Auckland Market.

The top growth areas of the Auckland Market are Onehunga, New Lynn and Henderson with these suburbs tracking to be on target to beat the 2019 selling numbers. These areas are great for first home buyers and investors looking to expand their property. South Auckland is no longer being left behind in the Auckland property market. With a post-lockdown boom, these suburbs have seen a growth in sales that no one could have anticipated.

The best performing suburbs are those on the North shore. Murrays Bay and Devonport on Auckland’s north shore are the best performing suburbs in the Auckland market since the 8-week lockdown. These suburbs defied the downward trends seen elsewhere in the market, with the value lifting approximately 10%. These two suburbs both have median house values of 1.4 and 1.67 million, respectively.

Another hot spot in the Auckland market is Blockhouse Bay, with the median house price just below a million and a growth of 10% during the lockdown period.  Real estate agents operating in Blockhouse Bay say the Auckland suburb is popular with movers and first home buyers, being the largest buying group city-wide since lockdown.
