Rural and Lifestyle Property in Strong demand

The Rural and Lifestyle Sales team trust you have had a chance to recharge your batteries over the Christmas/New year period and are now enjoying a great start to 2017.
Most of our team got away for a bit of a break but we have certainly been kept busy early in the new year. We are experiencing good quality inquiry for dairy farms in the $3-6 million price band and also smaller sheep and cattle properties up to $1,500,000. Lifestyle properties in all price brackets are also in strong demand.
Recent Rural and Lifestyle Sales include:

1397 Makino Road, Feilding

This well located 116.5 hectare easy rolling-medium hill received a huge amount of interest. Understandably all the neighbours were keen and our Tender process brought the best possible outcome for the owners. The neighbours missed out and another local party are delighted to be the successful purchaser. Sold for $2,120,000.

164 Lake Rd, Himatangi
A 97ha well improved dairy farm producing 82,000kg milksoilds has been sold by Tender. We had a good volume of interest and multiple tenders for the owners to consider. Sold for $3,100,000.

2975 Cheltenham Hunterville Rd
The strong demand for dwellings in Feilding and Palmerston North is overflowing into the rural villages. This 1/2 acre property at Cheltenham , 10 minutes from Feilding featured a 3 bedroom home ripe for a makeover, but a good opportunity for first-home buyers. Sold for $160,000.

If you know anyone with a surplus/empty farm house then please do give us a call (we know renting rural homes has become more of a hassle in recent times)

2070 Kimbolton Rd
A Kiwitea gem built in 1887 and offered for sale for the first time in 67 years. Recently subdivided on 8879 square metres, it provided a mature garden setting for the four bedroom character home. Kiwitea School is just a short walk away and it’s only a 15-20 minute commute from Feilding. Sold for $370,000. We have good demand for lifestyle properties in the $350-500,000 throughout the Manawatu
