41 Tauranga Market Activity Buyer demand in Tauranga appears to be going through some post winter blues with spring activity very depressed. Coming off such a strong growth period (peaking at 29% annual growth in August 2016) we were bound to see a reduction in activity and value growth and with the average value almost hitting $700k it appears that time is now. As with the rest of the country, tightening credit availability, stricter LVR limits and an uncertain election outcome have all played their part. First home buyers, while not a strong presence here, have maintained their activity levels, which has increased their share of sales as other buyers (movers and mortgaged multiple property owners) have reduced their activity.
