The real estate market in Queenstown showed mixed trends in April 2023. While dwelling sales appeared to increase from the previous month, it is important to note that this was primarily due to the settlement of 22 Te Pā Tāhuna apartments, marketed and sold by Ray White Queenstown.

For sections, the average sale price was $691,250, with the highest at $1,000,000 and the lowest at $400,000. Sections had an average days on the market of 139, and there were four section sales.

The Queenstown market is currently experiencing a shortage of new properties, which has led to a decrease in new listings. This scarcity has impacted sales volumes, with a lower number of homes (excluding apartment sales) sold in April 2023 compared to the previous month.
