I am a bit fed up with the election in particular being dominated by the Auckland housing crisis/challenge. The journalists and politicians seem to forget that over half of New Zealand is outside of Auckland.
Our part of New Zealand is affordable for most people. In Feilding in the last three months, there were six houses sold through Real Estate Agents at under $200,000, 15 between $200,000 and $250,000, and 20 between $250,000 and $300,000. I would call those 41 houses affordable.
In Auckland many people are calling $600,000 affordable, a few are saying $450,000, and some are even calling $1,000,000 + affordable.
Regional New Zealand has so many advantages. We can always visit the big cities.
