Auckland Market Cooling Despite Favourable Conditions

Aim: To describe the reasons for Auckland’s cooling housing market and assess whether it is here to stay.

Outcome: At the end of this module advisers will understand the likely reasons for the current state of Auckland’s housing market.

Abstract: Despite favourable strong population growth, record low interest rates and other positive factors, the Auckland housing market appears to have flat-lined with low sales volumes and flat pricing. Possible reasons for this unusual situation are considered and include a combination of government policies along with market sentiment. A strong argument for why the cooling market could be here to stay is made.
