Default REINZ data on housing mkt to May

extract:

Sales were up from 8,876 in April to 9,280 in May, close to the May 2004 figure of 9,416 sales, which Mr Morley described as “a remarkably solid effort for this time of the year when we enter the typically quiet winter months.�

Nine out of the 11 regions surveyed experienced price increases, some quite spectacular, during the month. However Mr Morley said some of the apparent big jumps were more a reflection of the traditionally softer April market where sales in some regions were well down, skewing some median sales figures.

On some counts NZ is already crazier, specifically average house prices as a ratio to average earnings, which in NZ are something like nine to ten times whereas in the UK 'only' 5 to 6 times.
