While values have been gradually declining nationwide over the past few months, the rate of this decline has been slowing, and values remained unchanged between December and January. This time last year values were still increas- ing and as a result the year on year comparison dropped slightly to 1.5 percent from the -0.9 percent reported last month. Values are now 5.8 percent below the market peak of late 2007. Values across the combined main centres have been stabilising, while across combined provincial and rural areas values have con- tinued to slide'' QV.co.nz research director Jonno Ingerson says. Auckland has been stable for several months and values are now only 0.6 percent below the same time last year. In the Wellington area, values have been rising since October after declining steadily in the six months prior and are now 2.5 percent below last year. Christchurch is the only main centre where values are above the same time last year at 0.3 percent as demand for houses in areas un- damaged by the earth- quakes has lifted prices. The remaining main centres have generally declined over the past year and values in Ham- ilton are now 3.4 percent down on last year, Tau- ranga down 2.2 percent, and Dunedin down 3.7 percent'' Mr Ingerson says. Values are below the same time last year in Whangarei (-4.4 per- cent), Rotorua (-3.3), Gis- borne (-5.2), Whanganui (-2.6), Palmerston North (-3.3), Queenstown Lakes (-3.3) and Invercargill (-3.8). Values are slightly below last year in Hast- ings (-1.6 percent) and New Plymouth (-1.5), and similar to last year in Napier (-0.1). Only Nelson remains above last year with values up by 1.4 percent.
