Housing in New Zealand

More than three-quarters of New Zealandís total population live in the major cities of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Manukau, North Shore, Waitakere and Dunedin. However, there are many people scattered throughout the beautiful countryside as well. No matter whether you are looking to settle in the city or the country, housing prices are extremely affordable and are yet another reason why New Zealand consistently rates amongst the best places to live in the world.

New Zealandís housing styles are many and varied. In urban areas, you will find homes ranging from old villas (many dating from the early 20th century) to new suburban homes and inner city apartments. In rural areas, you will find many old and new family homes, usually cottages, large modern houses and large old villas, many of which are made out of wood.

Do not expect to see concentrations of high-rise apartment blocks (although inner city living has become far more prevalent in recent years). Houses with spacious backyards with parks and shopping centres close by are far more common, and represent the kind of lifestyle most people can only dream about.

Comfortable and roomy housing within about one hour or less of central city business districts allows most New Zealanders to enjoy the convenience of travelling to and from work easily, plus easy (and mostly free) admission to national parks and regional leisure centres located in outer city regions on weekends. Similarly, visitors and immigrants to New Zealand should have no trouble renting or buying a home that is relatively close to their place of work or the tourist spots they wish to visit.
