Real Estate in North Shore
If you've fallen in love with Auckland, then Real Estate in Auckland might be your next move. Whether you're after a city crash pad, a suburban hideaway, or a coastal idyll, there are dozens of agencies waiting to show you your dream home.
Auckland is often voted one of the best cities in which to live, with a high quality of life, so it can also be quite expensive. Obviously, properties like apartments on Viaduct Harbour, or cottages on Waiheke Island, are going to be top of any price range, but if you shop around, you might be surprised at the bargains to be had. Areas like Mangere and Manukau used to be considered quite low-rent, but with the airport nearby and ever-improving transport links into the city, these are places to watch. North Shore is always popular, especially anywhere with beach, particularly Devonport and Takapuna, but spread your net to Albany, Birkdale or Birkenhead, and get more for your money. Parnell and Ponsonby are very desirable, but try going off the main streets onto the cul-de-sacs, where you might have to settle for something smaller but, as with most property, location is everything.
