2014 in Retrospect

What an extraordinary year it has been for the city of Christchurch.

Some days we are forced to wonder are we in fact making progress, are we getting this great city back on track, or are we just treading water. But when you reflect on the year that has been, an enormous amount of work has been done. The city has been absolutely teaming tradesmen, contractors and machines, all have been working frantically, and the fact that we question the amount of progress being made simply re-iterates the enormity of the task to redesign and rebuild a whole city. And our city faces a shortfall of well over $1 billion in its obligations to re-instate infrastructure and key amenities. What is of concern is how quickly the shortfall grew from $900 million to $1.2 billion (watch this space for the inevitably higher figure) and completion dates for projects balloon into the future. City Hall has many massive challenges for a long time a head.

The year has been an extremely busy one in our industry. Demand now is as strong as it was at the start of 2014 – the only change was the increase in the amount of stock available in the market in the last quarter of the year – it is a perennial phenomenon, Christmas is a compelling deadline in so many ways. Prices have increased during the period. We have seen many very high prices achieved, especially in our auction rooms, reflecting not just demand, but the rapidly escalating cost of building. You need to be aware of this especially if you are on the cusp of settling with your insurance company.

The Alison Aitken Team has had a stellar year and we want to thank you all for your support during 2014. We have been favoured with outstanding listings this year – it has been a pleasure to market them all.

We wish everyone the happiest Christmas ever, a relaxing break you all enjoy and a 2015 full of blessings.

Ally

Thank You for our New Offices












I have now worked for Robt McCormick for 23 years. Robt has always been an innovator and has an insatiable quest to be the best and to do the best. During that time he has always provided state of the art facilities and premises.

We were devastated to lose our great base in Madras Street in February 2011 and everyone coped with so much comprise for 3 ½ years at the eastern end of Moorhouse Ave. But now at 98 Moorhouse Avenue I think we have the smartest, most comprehensive and productive real estate premises in the country, especially our auction rooms. You are welcome to visit any time you are curious, Thursday afternoons (auction day) is always the best. But we want to acknowledge and congratulate Robt and our management team on the move.

Monthly Mortgage News with Sue Clydesdale of Mortgage Express

Sue ClydesdaleMedia has done a very good job of explaining and advertising the LVR restrictions. So good in fact that first home buyers have all but given up even trying to get a loan over 80%. The lenders are constantly telling us that they are not using up the 10% allocation of funds at the higher level of lending.

Money is definitely available and there are other options for first home bueyrs as well. Interest rates are very competitive even with the recent rises. There are extremely good specials at most banks, 5.89% fixed for two years being one of them. Feel free to call me anytime to discuss your options.

For further information please contact Sue Clydesdale at Mortgage Express on 0272 117 209,  freephone 0800 226 226.

Alison Aitken Auction Success

If you've never sold your home at auction, it can seem like a very intimidating experience.

If you have any questions about the auction process I'd be more than happy to meet you and discuss this highly effective marketing option.
