North Shore residential property values have just hit a new $1 million milestone.
Andrew Rush, QV national spokesperson, said average Shore house values had followed Auckland city and set a new record last month, joining the $1 million league for the first time.
"Hot on the heels of the average value in the old Auckland City Council region topping one million dollars last month, the average value in North Shore City has now also ticked over the milestone and is sitting at $1,007,836, with home values there are up 17.6 per cent year-on-year and a huge 6.2 per cent since May," she said.
QV has just released its national monthly data which showed house values rising at the fastest rate in seven years, Auckland investors moving south to Wellington and Dunedin and big value jumps in Hamilton, Tauranga, Whangarei, Franklin, Hauraki and the Waikato districts.
Values in the entire North Shore area now average $1,007,836 while values in the entire Auckland City area average $1,014,873, QV data showed.
