Living here

Whether you’re looking for an outdoor lifestyle, a place in the heart of a city, or a family home with plenty of space, fresh air and room for a garden, you’ll find it in New Zealand. There’s a wide range of choice in location and style, so you’ll have every opportunity to match your new home to the lifestyle of your dreams.

When moving to New Zealand, most people start by renting a property on a short-term basis. This gives you time to find out more about the area and be sure it’s the right place before committing to a long term tenancy or buying a property.

As a new arrival, you might want to buy immediately, to help you and your family feel more settled. Although that’s understandable, don’t let the urge to settle or any sales pressure push you into a decision too quickly. And do consider renting as an option.
