Some Great Things About Living in Upper Hutt
After re reading my last column from 2 weeks ago, I realised that it could have sounded quite negative to some so, today, I thought I would balance it out with some positive news. In the last 2 weeks I have sold 3 properties and have 2 in negotiation, this isn’t meant to sound conceited but to point out that although the market is indeed considerably quieter than this time last year properties are still selling and good agents haven’t suddenly become duffers!
Not only are properties still selling in our fair city but there are many positives that Upper Hutt offers but we don’t give them enough credit or simply need to be reminded about them so in no particular order here’s a list that cheers me up. The views!! Now, in fairness, I am from a flat country but in Upper Hutt you don’t have to go far to see something wonderful, head up Maidstone Hill, Cannons Point, Riverstone and look down. The river! Feeling stressed, go for a walk, easily accessible and really relaxing on a sunny winters day. The parks! Harcourt, Trentham Memorial, Maidstone, fabulous family places. (obviously better in Summer) The schools! I don’t know of a bad school in Upper Hutt, every parent I speak to is very positive of their children’s school and much more so than my memories of London.
The Leader is a great source of information and keeping us in touch with what’s going on. River FM, 88.1, Upper Hutt has a radio station! Who knew? (Actually I did because I talk about real estate every Thursday morning at 9.30) Travel links! Wellingtonians think we live in The Wairarapa but we are 40 minutes away on a train and 30 minutes in a car (outside of rush hour) Cafés, seriously, if there is a bad one in Upper Hutt I haven’t found it and I look regularly!
These are some of the things that make me grateful to live and work here and I suppose if I had to add one more thing to my personal list, it would have to be the Upper Hutt women, after all I’ve married 2 of them :)
