Housing in New Zealand is as varied as its people. Whether you’re looking for an outdoor lifestyle, a place in the heart of the city or a family home with room for the kids to run around in, you’ll find it here. Your options include suburban homes, rural living and lifestyle blocks, apartments, flats and townhouses.

New Zealand homes are generally built to make the most of the light and the outdoors. People prize an ‘indoor-outdoor flow’ because it is ideal for barbecues and summer living!

Historically people have built standalone houses, made with a timber frame and either timber or brick veneer cladding, but as cities become more populated, apartments and multiple unit houses have become more popular.
