Turangi confirmed as NZ’s “biggest riser”


Turangi has been crowned New Zealand’s “biggest riser’ in the latest OneRoof Property Report


Median values in Turangi rose by 41% in the past 12 months, and in the past two years have risen by a staggering 73%. In the last quarter alone, OneRoof reports Turangi property enjoyed a six percent increase. The median value in Turangi is now $260,000.

“Without doubt, Turangi has seen a significant lift in house prices and demand in the past couple of years,”  says Century 21 Premier (Turangi) franchise owner Wai Johnson.

“Nonetheless it remains one of New Zealand’s most affordable areas. It’s also the North Island’s most central place to enjoy an unbeatable summer and winter lifestyle.”

She says one key factor of Century 21’s success in Turangi has been their support for local charities and volunteer services. In fact, they’re hosting a charity dinner on Saturday, 22 June to raise money for the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter.

Johnson says the extra activity has meant Century 21 Premier (Turangi) has recently employed two more team members, Logan Gilbert and John Smith, broadening the office’s expertise and the geographical area it services.

“The Century 21 Turangi team has been right at the centre of this astonishing growth, and somehow still finds time to give back to some great local causes,” says Ryan Mitchell, National Manager of Century 21 New Zealand.

“The outlook remains strong for Turangi, helped by investment and attractions like Mt Ruapehu’s Sky Waka Gondola. Set to open soon, the gondola will be another significant year-round visitor drawcard and employer in the area.”
