We are looking at moving to Wellington! Auckland property market has become a joke. We were interested in a certain property in an okay area of Mt. Roskill. It was a brand new home. We carried out an independent building inspection. Unfortunately, the house failed the building inspection miserably. The frames were not lining up so the walls were not straight. "Within a season or two, cracks and leaks would become common" remarked the inspector. We obviously gave the property a miss but did attend the auction. The price bracket the house expected to sell was between 1.2 - 1.3 mil. Guess what this house sold for? 1 point 6! Yes, 1.6mil. I am so over Auckland. Mod Edit - removed expletive and political ref.
