With the average price of $550,000, Hamilton affordability has decreased, though the city still remains the most affordable of all major North Island cities.
Demand for rental accommodation remains strong with over 160,000 people continuing to rent. Unfortunately, tighter lending restrictions are driving a lack of supply with reported vacancy rates as low as 1%.
