Canterbury inventory appears to have topped out, being flat for the last few months.

In direct contrast to other centres, there are too many properties in Christchurch simply due to Government interference in the construction industry. The population has obviously scarpered and too many new houses were built.

This problem continued to grow since 2014 but is now in the reverse direction - are Christchurch people returning?

Nope, it returned to growing numbers of listings in July.

This change is accelerating as at July
