Four waterfront properties come to market on Tauranga's rural inner-harbour
Monday, 25 March 2019
Bayleys' Bay of Plenty country sales manager Matt Clutterbuck said the four properties all represented outstanding opportunities, and his team had worked hard to secure the listings.
Two of the properties are being marketed for sale by auction on different dates, while the third was being marketed for sale through a tender process, and the fourth was for sale by negotiation.
"Pahoia is a popular location for its proximity to urban amenities, good schooling and the local villages you can reach without going into the central city," Mr Clutterbuck said.
"The peninsula includes some of the Bay of Plenty's most stunning waterfront properties and retains a relaxed rural atmosphere with a friendly community.

Falling property prices across the Tasman have left many in our housing market asking if the impact will soon be felt in New Zealand. A leading analyst thinks not.

Melbourne and Sydney have been particularly affected by challenges in the housing market across the Tasman, and Fitch Ratings has predicted that Australia's housing market will be the worst performer out of 24 countries for the second year running.
Australian prices have already fallen 6.7 per cent since their peak and Fitch said this was mostly due to lower investor demand thanks to tougher restrictions on lending.
With a household debt-to-GDP ratio of 121 percent in Australia, Fitch predicts that house prices there will drop by another 5 percent in 2019 before stabilising in 2020.

The historic property known as Kohatunui in the settlement of Whana Whana some 48 kilometres west of Hastings in Hawke's Bay was built in 1921 by New Zealand army officer Eric Beamish who served in the Hawke's Bay Mounted Rifles division in World War I.
Posted to Gallipoli, New Zealand Army war records list that lieutenant Eric Beamish was shot in the chest in August 1915 during the battle for Table Top Mountain. He was one of six New Zealanders wounded during the gun-fight that day. The bullet lodged in lieutenant Beamish's chest – just millimetres from his heart – so close in fact, that the cartridge remained there for the duration of his life.
