Over the last few years Hamilton has experienced its strongest residential housing boom, with an all time high in both the volume of new dwellings and average sale prices. Unfortunately, there is clear evidence of a flattening and there shouldn’t be any surprising highs and lows this year.

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%.

If you’re one of 14,000 Hamilton landlords, myRent can help to manage and advertise your property. myRent offers simplified, flexible, intuitive property management for only $17 per month and Hamilton property advertising on myRent,, OneRoof, Facebook, Trovit and myRent and for a one-off fee of $50, and a Trade Me and listings for an extra $140.
