Property Prices and Removals New Zealand
There are plenty of options from ranch-style family homes to modern bachelor apartments and expats will find they have plenty of choice. In New Zealand ‘units’ are generally used to describe any single home. ‘Home units’ usually describe smaller homes that are grouped with other similar houses around a shared driveway. Owing to the large number of forests in New Zealand, many houses are made from wood; it is always wise to check that insulation is adequate. You can expect to pay NZ$ 9,000.00 per square metre for an apartment in a city centre in New Zealand.
