About the Real Estate and Property Industry in New Zealand

Successful real estate agents and salespeople have one thing in common – they’ve got their finger on the pulse of their local property market. Keeping an eye on what’s selling, how fast and at what price is all part of the job. In New Zealand, real estate agents can represent both buyers and sellers. If you are interested in this industry, you will need strong people skills and a talent for negotiations.


With the average house price in Auckland soaring 90% in the past decade, it’s little wonder New Zealand’s property market is such as hot topic. However, reports indicate the boom may finally be over.

The good news from industry experts is that top talent is in strong demand. Candidates with a commitment to customer service, a positive outlook and a proven track record are considered highly attractive in a candidate-short market. Employers are also placing a greater focus on training.


The average advertised salary also remained steady at $85,211.

Industry Growth and Niche Fields

Fields such as commercial sales, leasing and property management grew by 14% year-on-year over the three-month period and administration roles in real estate were up by 7%.

If you’re interested in niche fields such as property analysts, advertised opportunities continue to rise by 92% each year. Meanwhile, prospects for residential sales roles have been increasing by 3% and this area also offers the highest volume of opportunities for the industry.

Demand for sales talent remains high and candidates can expect more training opportunities. Employers are now recognizing that they need to provide more training and support to help their teams be successful. This means that the industry is a great one for those interested in professional development.
