February/March has a sharp change upwards as more properties come onto the market. Is this the impact of more apartments? The building boom getting out of control already? This market is dangerous for investors.

Increasing numbers of private rentals are becoming available in Auckland. Inventory is rising towards the top of the last 4 years. There is absolutely no shortage of properties available for rent in the private market. That does not exclude the possibility of a severe shortage of properties in the subsidised rental market, namely the Government or council housing markets.

2018 sees the continuation of growth in the Auckland market, but very slowly. The thick black line of 2018 is the highest it has been in 5 years.
