Flaxmere Article 
Flaxmere’s house value appreciation over 15-20 years has outperformed some coastal and urban locations for Hawke’s Bay.

In 1998, Flaxmere recorded 27 house sales equating to 2.3 per month and a total value of $2.2m.  In 2018 transactions were 237 or almost 20 per month summing $56.1m. In 2018 the median house sale price was $230,000 – up 156% in 20 years with growth highest since 2003.

Turley & Co’s 15-years 2003-2018 study measured Flaxmere’s median residential property value change at 142% or 6.1% per annum compound.  Flaxmere’s annualised value growth outpaced residential property over the 15 years for Napier Hill (3.2%), Mahia beach (3.3%), Bay View (4.1%), Westshore (4.4%), Taradale flat areas (5.5%) and Waimarama (5.7%).

The 2019 three-yearly Rating Valuation reassessment for 2,976 residential rating units at Flaxmere reflects average Capital Value of $307,100.  The Flaxmere RV has risen 67% compared to district-wide residential RV increase 43% 2016-19.

Mountains of hard work has converged, yielding the iwi-led ground-breaking Waingākau Village, the Kimi Ora Community School culture-focused redesign, town-centre and community facilities betterment (as promised by Hastings Council) and St Andrews’ solar electricity project.
