Trade Me’s top property listings in July

Once again, Christchurch dominated our most popular properties in July.

11 August 2021

Whether it’s to search for a first home, a dream home, or simply to browse the wacky and extravagant homes that exist across Aotearoa, there's no denying that Kiwis’ are passionate about property. These were the most popular properties in July.

8. A Welly classic

Not only is this property ideally located in Mount Cook near the CBD, Massey University,  local schools and amenities, but it’s also absolutely bursting with character. You’ll find five spacious bedrooms, an open plan kitchen/dining/living on the ground floor, and a big backyard. It’s a quintessentially Welly abode; nicely renovated, with some of its villa-defining features retained. 

With 6000 views in one week, we’re sure that this one will be snapped up quickly. Take a look.

7. More than meets the eye

It’s not always extravagant mansions and lavish living that catch Kiwis’ attention – this little home in Richmond, Christchurch was sold in under three weeks after 7000 views.

The great location, large outdoor spaces, and open plan layout made it the perfect family home or first home buyer bargain.  

But you’ve got to get in quick in Christchurch!

6. Wow factor

This Meadowbank beauty in Auckland’s been tastefully renovated. The modern kitchen – which includes a butler’s pantry – connects inside and out and the open plan living/dining freely flows onto a sunny private deck and backyard which has a private bush outlook. You can’t see the neighbours at all and that’s always a win, right?

5. Character villa in Berhampore

This lovely villa is very similar in look and feel to the Mount Cook home which came in at number 8 – people clearly love homes with a bit of history in Wellington. Both properties come with equally identical price tags – sitting in the low $1 millions – not cheap by any means, but a bargain when compared to Auckland.

This villa is true to its roots – beautiful Kauri floorboards, windows frames and doors, and french doors opening onto a quaint balcony. A generous 7200 kiwis have checked out this house. If you haven’t already, you can still view it here.

4. Charming bungalow

It’s a competitive market in Christchurch – this 1950s Burwood bungalow sold in two weeks, with 8000 views on Trade Me.  

If there are two things this property has, its style and space; the generous 683sqm section and the well-presented interior are perfect for young families or those starting their home buying journey.

3. First home buyer delight

When it comes to value for money, Christchurch takes the cake. This modest home located in the Christchurch suburb of Redwood was quickly snapped up by a keen buyer. 

You may be wondering why this particular home amassed 10,000 views; it’s easy – all any of us really want is a quality home for ourselves and our family. With its large private garden, great location and reasonable price, this property ticks all the boxes.

2. Perfect blend of old and new

This home is located in the popular St Albans and had over 12,000 views in July. 

The living area has been designed to maximise open-plan living, which flows seamlessly, out to the outdoor entertaining space through ranch sliders. 

With an RV sitting nicely in the low $500,000s, it’s sure to attract a lot of interest.

1. Stylish 1960’s bungalow

Coming in at number one is this Kaiapoi bungalow, located 20km north of Christchurch. Recently renovated from top to bottom, this property has racked up over 17,000 views in July, and sold in under three weeks.

This goes to show the power of simple, yet well-planned interior design. By incorporating attractive bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen features, not only did the value of this property soar, so did the interest it received.
