Buying a Property in New Zealand

British property buyers looking for a fresh start continue to flock to New Zealand, despite being located on the other side of the world. And who can blame them? It's a similar size, has a similar climate and most appealing of all is stunningly beautiful, with snow-capped mountains, rolling countryside, rivers, lakes, beaches and fjords. Throw a stable economy, world-class healthcare, excellent schools, job opportunities and relaxed pace of life into the mix and it's easy to see why New Zealand is consistently placed in the top 10 of the World Happiness Report.

From bustling Auckland on the north island - home to around a third of the country's population - to remote rural communities on the south island, you'll find somewhere that suits you.
