Dunedin Real Estate Your Dream Property Is Within Your Reach

Sometimes referred to as the southern gem, Dunedin is the South Islands second biggest city, characterised by a unique Scottish feel and architecture imposed on it during the time of New Zealands colonisation. Surround by beaches, forests and dramatic scenery, Dunedin is noted for its youthful and charismatic population being attracted by the educational and tertiary facilities contained within. With a population of just over 125,000, the city is one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. Becoming a desired location for students, families and businesses alike, the demand for Dunedin real estate is increasing at above average rates.

According to the latest Quotable Value New Zealand figures, southern Dunedin real estate figures have surged, recording the highest percentage increase in the country. The southern region extends from Waverley to Green Island, including the suburbs of St Kilda and St Clair. The figures illustrate that the area has experienced an increase in home values by 8.7% with an average sale price of $264,000. Likewise, Dunedin overall, showed a 4.9% increase in property values with the average sale price rising to over $276,000.

The increasing prices are a direct result of increasing demand. As many of the main centres in New Zealand are experiencing continued growth in house prices and valuations, Dunedin is presenting itself to many as an attractive option. With the average house price in New Zealand just a little under $410,000, properties in Dunedin represent real value in the marketplace where many families are struggling to find suitable and affordable housing options. According to Glenda Whitehead from QV Valuations, some of the increase in market activity in Dunedin is due to a rise in purchases by existing homeowners, who realise the benefits of purchasing prime real estate at well below national averages.

There are many advantages to purchasing Dunedin real estate, apart from the scenic and natural beauty that the city is surrounded by. With the security of tenure, you will be able to enjoy the cycle of the real estate market, accessing capital gain as the property naturally appreciates. If, like most kiwis, you enjoy a little do it yourself (DIY), then additional capital gains can be achieved through renovations. There is nothing like the sense of pride that comes with homeownership. The freedom and ability to personalise your property to suit your tastes and requirements has long been an aspiration of nearly all New Zealanders. However, with the current price hikes in property prices, renting is fast becoming a reality for many who cannot afford the deposit or repayments on their first home. However, Dunedin is offering the consumer real value and choice. Why not consider a move to a new place, where the people are friendly, the amenities are first class and most of all, your dream property is within your reach.

Real Estate and Private Sector Signs Regulation, and Outdoor Sign Permits

Are Real Estate Signs Allowed in State Highways?

It will depend on the state you’re in, or how strict the enforcement of bootleg laws are.

Directional signs are used along the highway directing traffic to an event, sale, or home for sale, and are often called “bootleg” signs, because they’re typically considered illegal (the name comes from the Prohibition Era of the US’ history when “bootlegged” liquor was sold across the US by illegal producers.

So, technically, these are illegal signs, although the name is now more associated with the genre of sign than whether or not they’re actually legal or not.

The thought behind the use of these signs is that state employees are not working on weekends and are likely not going to do anything about these illegal signs which are gone by Monday morning when they drive to work. Out of sight, out of mind.

I have not heard of anyone having any issues with using bootleg signs, but I only know that in our area, they’re not illegal anyway, so you can put them out whenever as long as you’re not on the county or city or state right of way. And even then, people do it and the signs seem to be there for a long time, so I don’t think in our area there’s much enforcement.

Is a Sign Permit Required to Advertise Outdoors?

That depends on what type of outdoor advertising you’re doing. Typically, if a sign is temporary, like a banner or small bootleg sign, no permit or license is needed, at least not in most areas. You’ll want to check with your local sign police, er, I mean county or municipal building department to learn what your local code requires.

Now, if you’re going to plant a billboard or a permanent business sign, then you’re going to want to contact a reputable local sign company and get these answers because these companies are the ones that deal directly with the county and city and state building departments and so they’re going to know where to find the information you need regarding your sign or other outdoor advertising.

Who Pays for those Signs Owned by Private Businesses?

One sure thing is that the Government won’t pay for signs owned by most private business owners. If they did, there would be a plethora of signs on the highway, and it would be a mess and the government would go more into the hole than it already is.

There is an application process that you would need to go through with the state where you want your sign, and they only allow certain types of businesses to advertise on these signs, typically.

The types of businesses are those that provide traveler services such as fuel stations, restaurants, and the like. So, unless your business is of this type, first, you’ll not be able to advertise on any Highway or Interstate signs, and if you are able to, you’ll pay for the sign. In my experience, the pricing is generally reasonable and most good sign shops can make the sign for you if they follow the state or federal specs for the signs.
