REINZ reported this morning that NZ median property prices ex Auckland ended up 6.6% year on year.
The Waikato region had another strong year reporting an 11.7% gain in median house prices.
Volumes are down, but they are down from very high levels. I think we are heading into a period of more sustainable growth because we are still not building enough houses, interest rates are still low and migration is still strong, though coming off record highs.
