What your money gets you in Northland

Are you looking to purchase a new home, but are put off by the house prices in Auckland? Do you feel that you are just not getting value for money in Auckland? Are you tired of big city living and hanker for a more laid-back lifestyle?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then consider a move to Northland, where the houses are cheaper, jobs are plentiful and the lifestyle is simply the best!

Northland Houses for sale

We’ve all heard the stories of Aucklanders selling up and moving north to find better value for money and a better way of life. It’s hardly any wonder, with the often prohibitively high cost of housing in New Zealand’s largest city.

As of mid-2016, the average home in Auckland costs $942,760. Compare that to just $430,000 for an average home in Northland, and you can see why so many people are choosing to move north.

Let’s compare a property in Auckland and in Whangarei listed for sale in mid-2016, to give you an idea of what your money can get you in Northland.

Auckland Property

A property in popular Avondale is on the market for an asking price between $850k and $950k. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, its’s a reasonable, family-sized house in a reasonable area. It ticks all the boxes for a growing family: you have good access to schools, shops and work. But, you’re still in the middle of a big city, with all the downsides that brings – heavy traffic, long travelling times and the stress that this brings.

Now, take a look at the value for money you can get in Northland.

For just $829k you can buy a stunning home located in popular Lang’s Beach, one of the most beautiful and sought-after spots in the world. It’s such a lovely place to live, that Rod Stewart and Rachel Hunter honeymooned there! With this house, you get a beautiful, decent family-sized home, in a good neighborhood, just like the Avondale house above – but with so much more.

A home like this opens the door to a lifestyle that most people don’t have access to in a big city. A home like this offers so many more opportunities for a family. Imagine waking up to this view every morning,  imagine the kids coming home from school and having not just a back yard, but the whole beach to play on! Yes, Auckland has some stunning beaches too, but how long do you have to spend in the car to get there? Imagine how much fun weekends would be in an area like this – the sea is right there, practically on your doorstep! It’s so easy to take advantage of the lifestyle here, and the many options on offer – fishing, boating, sailing, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking…the list is practically endless. Keep an eye on our Lang’s Beach houses for sale to see the one that is perfect for you.

With business and shopping centres such as Waipu, Ruakaka and Whangarei close by, you have convenient access to good schools – without having to spend hours every day in traffic!

What are you waiting for?

When you make the decision to purchase a property in Northland, you get more than just a home – you get a lifestyle, far superior to anything you could dream of in a big, crowded city like Auckland.

Many Auckland families have already made their dream of a better lifestyle come true – it’s time for you to do the same. Take advantage of what your money can get you in Northland!
