    WELLINGTON, Feb 15 (Reuters) - New Zealand house prices
jumped and sales volumes picked up in January as the market
continued its recovery from a prolonged quiet spell for much of
the previous year, the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand
(REINZ) said on Thursday.
   Seasonally adjusted median nationwide house values rose 0.6
percent compared to the previous month for a 7 percent gain on
an annual basis.
    Sales volumes grew for the first time in 19 months, posting
an annual rise of 2.7 percent.
