Buying a House in Auckland

Auckland has been dubbed “the big little city”. And it’s a name New Zealand’s largest city lives up to. Auckland offers both the simple, relaxed living of NZ as well as the fast paced hustle and bustle of a city. Buying a house in Auckland can be a great move depending on what you’re looking for. 

If you buy a house in Auckland, you can expect the following:

  • More housing options with a wider range and number of suburbs to choose from.
  • Being surrounded by beautiful coastlines, a lovely beach is never too far away. If you own a boat, the “city of sails” may be just the place for you.
  • A culturally diverse population. This is reflected by the range of festivals and events on offer throughout the year.
  • Plenty of dining and shopping hotspots throughout the city. Variety is the spice of Auckland.
  • A home that matches and reflects your personality. Auckland has a range of character filled villas, bungalows and art deco houses to choose from.
  • More schools, tertiary institutions and study options in general.

Other not so ideal things you can expect are:

  • High house prices on average. Due to the demand of the approximately 1.4 million population, low interest rates and more buyers than sellers, Auckland house prices sit around the $550 000 mark. For first home buyers, this may mean buying outside of central suburbs or in emerging suburbs.
  • Traffic can be a nightmare. Peak traffic times are early morning and 3-5pm due to school and work timings.
  • Auckland was voted 3rd most liveable city in the world in 2012. That reflects a lot of the great things about living in Auckland. Explore both the positives and negatives to make an educated decision!
