Cheap homes

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By PET­RICE TARRANT

Low house prices could at­tract peo­ple to Toko­roa if the small town played its cards right.

But in­vestors are not bit­ing the car­rot be­cause they can’t see it, Har­veys Realty Waikato sales­per­son Ben John­son said.

‘‘The main thing I’ve no­ticed is that not a lot of peo­ple out­side of Toko­roa know about the [cheap] Tok mar­ket.’’

The cheap­est house Har­veys has up for grabs is go­ing for $45,000 while Trade Me is ad­ver­tis­ing one on Dal­meny St for $30,000.

This is a far cry from the $ 346,000 me­dian house price REINZ re­leased for the Waikato/ BOP re­gion’s De­cem­ber sales.

That is the third con­sec­u­tive record high for the re­gion.
