One of the world’s least affordable housing markets might finally be slowing, says The Bulletin. There are both short and long-term explanations for why New Zealand could see soaring prices slow from their dramatic hike.

Governor Adrian Orr also said that he expects prices to eventually fall as construction gets underway and demand is reduced.
