Lockdown restrictions on real estate contributed to Auckland’s average house sale price falling by over 4 per cent in September, according to the city’s largest agency, Stuff reports. The figures showed the city’s median price also fell. It was $1,100,000 in September down 2.7 per cent from $1,130,000 the month before. Barfoot & Thompson managing director Peter Thompson said lockdown’s restrictions on open homes and viewings had a big impact on sales volumes and trading patterns, and that resulted in sales prices edging lower.
