Queenstown Property Sales Year-to-Date 2011.

Eight for twelve and the 8- months year-to-date 2011 continues to firm
on both sales values and volume comparing 2010 for Queenstown’s property market.

What transpires in the next few months for Queenstown property sales
could well be influenced by lingering fears the euro zone crisis is dragging
the global economy into another recession. Then again a positive and         upbeat mindset should our All Blacks go on to win the Rugby World Cup could also come into the mix.

Let’s not forget the country has a General Election on November 26th
just to throw in another event. Governance beyond December will likely
influence our economy medium-term than is likely short-term given key policy (Excuse the pun) has already been rolled out.

In the meantime spring weather has arrived and local realtors are listing properties to provide stock through and into summer and sales continued
to be closed.
