Looking at things long term for investors, it’s clear that Hamilton has and will continue to be a safe place to invest. The January
2023 data from QV shows that property values in Hamilton City have increased in value by 45% in the last 5 years and has only decreased by
12.2% in the last 12 months. This contrasts with Auckland city increasing by 18.6% in the last 5 years and diving by 14.7% in the last 12
months. This is due in part to the lower price entry level of Hamilton, making a more affordable place for purchaser to buy, in addition it
is due to the massive infrastructure improvements that Hamilton is currently experiencing, as shown in the video below. As an investor
you’ll reap your ever-growing reward as both income and property capital continue to grow here.
Need further convincing? Let’s take a quick look at what Hamilton has got in store for potential investors.
Hamilton’s population of approximately 179,000 is expected to grow by 50,000 people by 2035. According to the Hamilton City Council, at
least 18,000 new homes are needed across the city to meet that demand. There are several projects and developments underway to ensure this
target can be met. This includes the development of new sustainable communities in Peacocke and Rotokauri.
One of Hamilton’s largest greenfield areas — Peacocke — is currently under development and is set to deliver a new bridge, main roads,
parks, strategic water and stormwater networks. The area’s development programme was supported by a funding package of $290.4 million from
the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to enable the transport facilities and essential services new homes and communities need.
Let’s consider Hamilton’s placement, located in the heart of the Waikato, one of New Zealand’s richest regions, responsible for 20% of the
country’s total exports. Agriculture, biotechnology, light aviation, transport logistics, science research, education and healthcare lead
the Hamilton economy, providing diverse employment opportunities in the city. Residents also get the best of both worlds living the city
life while being surrounded by rolling emerald green hills and bush. Proximity is another appealing plus, as you’re only an
hours’ drive away from Auckland and a short 90 minute drive away from the sunny Bay Of Plenty.
People are flocking to Hamilton for one word: opportunity. Working men and women find opportunity in the form of jobs, and students are
flocking by the thousands for the reasonably priced education on offer for them at The University of Waikato. So where’s the opportunity for
you, the investor? Just a few more words: rental property.
The key to clever property investment is to invest in a growing market such as Hamilton, where the demand for property and rentals is
