Remember, first impressions count! Creating an attractive outdoor environment may involve landscaping, plantings, decks, pergolas, garaging, fencing, paths, entrance and driveway, in addition to the exterior decoration of the house itself. However, be careful not to over-capitalise on elaborate landscaping, if a simple make-over can achieve a desirable effect. Draw up plans and a budget for the areas you plan to re-develop. Ensure any additional structures such as garaging, decks, retaining walls and fences have the required permits and seek advice on the ideal building materials and methods. Planting Discuss with your local garden centre or nursery which plants will best suit the size sun and situation of your section and don’t design a labour intensive garden if your lifestyle won’t allow you the time to look after it! Fences and Gates These should provide privacy and security, while also allowing access to the property for visitors. Try to choose fence and gate styles that complement the age and style of your home. Consider additional aspects such as light, cost, Landscaping maintenance, traffic noise and street appeal when making your selection. Entrance The entrance to your house should be a focal point to welcome visitors, provide easy access and visually link the inside and outside aspects of the property. Whether a traditional verandah, a glass porch, canvas canopy, pillared portico or simply an attractive front door and steps, ensure the colours, shape, style and surfaces and in keeping with the original architecture. Decks, Patios and Courtyards The New Zealand climate has always encouraged exterior extensions to the house whether a colonial verandah, timber deck, paved patio or European courtyard. Screened for shelter and privacy they are attractive “outdoor rooms” for recreation, entertaining and outdoor dining and a sure way to enhance the value of almost any home. Garages and Carports Depending on the age of your home, garage space may be a problem is there is insufficient access to the side or rear of the house. It may be possible to construct a garage or carport close to the street frontage. In order not to detract from the visual appeal of the property, it is important that the dimensions, design and materials be in keeping with the existing house. Skillful landscaping and planting can “soften” the impact. NEW LISTINGS 9/03/2017 1:51:53 p.m. Thinking about building?

During the last few months, real estate in the region has seen a surge in the number of properties being listed and sold, with some great options in investment to be found. Oamaru, is made up of four main suburbs: Oamaru (central suburb), Oamaru North, Holmes Hill and South Hill. Average values have grown relatively comparatively across these main suburbs and properties are selling, on average, in about two months. With a lot of media time in recent weeks, after data was released showing Oamaru as the fourth most-viewed New Zealand location on property website Juwai, we have received a multitude of calls from out-of-towners who are interested in investing in property in, or moving to, the North Otago region. With a shortage of rentals available, investors are seeing great returns for what they already own, and the time is right to increase investment portfolios. On the other hand, many folk are also looking at making the move to our region as they’re seeing the many benefits our lifestyle here has to offer. To have a chat about the local property market, give me a call! Stephen Robertson LJ Hooker Oamaru Principal Phone 027 473 1112 Your Earthquake damaged home!

The Waitaki district is definitely on a roll at the moment, and that roll looks set to continue for quite some time yet! With agriculture, manufacturing and tourism growing strongly through investment and promotion, Waitaki is attracting a lot of attention. Lonely Planet has called Oamaru, “the coolest town in New Zealand,” and that is a title we are proud of. Our Council is working hard with our community to make our district an even more amazing place. With so many wonderful attributes going for us, from our natural environment through to our built heritage, our eclectic arts and music scene, and growing economy, we really have a place with an amazingly positive future. I’m proud of the sustainable growth we are experiencing. We are improving opportunities for our local people, and welcoming a steady but manageable stream of new people to the area. They are coming for better lifestyles, good jobs, business opportunities, and in some cases to retire. We are a friendly town and a welcoming district.
