Auckland property management: Navigating the local real estate landscape

24 August 2023

Tenants shaking hands with a property manager

Auckland’s property market has been rapidly changing in recent years. Periods of sudden growth followed by periods of decline have made the local real estate landscape uncertain and unpredictable. In times like these, having the assistance of a quality Auckland property manager can help you navigate the market while staying profitable.

Staying up to date with the local market and any regulations that affect your status as a property owner can help you make the right choices for your properties, your tenants and yourself.

The state of Auckland’s rental property market

With all of the recent changes, the current state of Auckland’s property market is unsure. There are a number of factors that are contributing to this uncertainty, including:

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the world is in a better state than it was when the pandemic started, the severe impact of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic is still very noticeable in Auckland’s current property market. The economic challenges brought on by the pandemic have seriously disrupted the market. Auckland property managers and property owners must both work hard to deal with these ongoing effects.

The rising cost of living. The cost of living crisis has made it more difficult for people to afford many things, including paying rent or buying a new home. Statistics show that the cost of living for the average New Zealand household increased by 7.7 per cent in the twelve months leading up to March 2023.

Aside from the rising cost of living, Auckland’s average rent is also increasing. Even the most affordable sections of Auckland are seeing rising rent prices.

The government’s changes to the residential tenancies act. The government has made a number of changes to the Residential Tenancies Act in recent years. These recent changes are likely to have a positive impact on the local market, as they should make it easier for tenants to find quality rental properties.

What an experienced Auckland property management company can do for you

Despite the uncertainty, there are still positive signs in the Auckland property market. The city’s population is growing, and there is still a strong demand for rental properties that are in good condition and managed by smart Auckland property managers.
