Auckland housing bargains can still be found, but act quickly
Only 10 Auckland suburbs have average house prices under $500,000.
Just a handful of Auckland suburbs remain with average house prices under half a million dollars, new figures reveal.
The latest QV.co.nz E-Valuer statistics show only 10 of Auckland’s 167 suburbs have homes with a median value under $500,000. The number of suburbs that have hit an average $1m mark has jumped from 43 to 50 in just two months.
Real Estate Institute of New Zealand chief executive Colleen Milne said there were still opportunities for first-time buyers but they had to move quickly.

All 10 suburbs are in South Auckland: Otara, Otahuhu, Clendon Park, Waiuku, Red Hill, Papakura, Manukau, Manurewa East, Weymouth and Randwick Park. Wellsford, north of Auckland, is also in that bracket.
