Rural Property Market Research

View the latest rural property research and insights from the Colliers Rural Valuation team.


We have seen strong growth in the wine industry with increased vineyard production and processing capacity, stronger demand from export markets and a lift in the contract grape price paid to growers. This has resulted in vineyard values increasing with an active property market at the current time.

The market’s momentum is driven by the resilience of the New Zealand Dairy Industry during a global pandemic and a strong farm gate milk price restoring confidence in those already invested and capturing the attention of new investors.
Research page_Featured_2021 Kiwifruit Report

Kiwifruit orchard sales volume is trending downwards in the past few years which likely reflects the lack of properties coming to the market as owners chose to hold rather than sell along with the increased appetite in historically lower tier growing areas. The record returns achieved in recent years compare very favourably to alternative investments.
