Housing Market Ends 2023 on a High Note, But Patchy Future Ahead

The CoreLogic House Price Index, recently released, shows the third consecutive rise in average property values in December, with momentum building.

Key Points:

  • December saw the 3rd consecutive rise in property values, with a 1% increase nationally.
  • Average value now at $924,489, up 2.1% since September.
  • Gains strongest in main centres like Tauranga, Auckland, and Christchurch.
  • Despite the upturn, values are still down 3.3% from last year and 11.4% from 2 years ago.
  • Expect a “patchy” 2024 with month-to-month and regional variations.
  • Rising sentiment, stable mortgage rates, and strong employment could fuel further gains.
  • Affordability remains a major concern, especially with shorter fixed mortgage rates still high.
  • Debt-to-income ratio caps could be introduced in 2024, affecting borrowing capacity.
  • Regional markets may see more varied performance, with tourist hotspots like Queenstown thriving.
  • Overall, 2024 will likely see moderate property value growth (around 5% nationally) and increased sales activity (around 10%).

In essence, while the housing market is bouncing back, expect a bumpy ride with uneven growth and continued affordability challenges.
