Hamilton Property Articles

Hamilton is New Zealand’s largest inland city with the Waikato River running through the middle. More people are moving here as it’s a modern, innovative city with affordable living costs and thriving businesses. Hamilton’s economy is strong, diverse, flourishing and part of the ‘golden triangle’ of economy and freight with Auckland and Tauranga.

The golden triangle accounts for two-thirds of all freight in New Zealand. Hamilton is also home to some of New Zealand’s more innovative and export-driven companies and research institutes.

The proximity to international ports and New Zealand’s busiest international airport means Hamilton is highly connected to the rest of the world.

Hamilton is a proven fantastic location to invest, providing strong long term capital growth and rental demand. Employment opportunities in the region have resulted in a population increase of over 23% in the last 10 years.

It really is impossible to keep up with the fast-paced Hamilton market at present unless you are immersed in it every day. In the last 12 months, Waikato median house prices rose 14.4%, and 4% in the time since lockdown here ended.

Hamilton is currently experiencing a consistent slow-burn in terms of price growth. Over the last 12 months it has experienced capital growth levels of 4.5%, outperforming the other two cities in the ‘Golden Triangle’.
