At a glance, Hamilton may not be the destination of choice for people looking to leave Auckland, but take a closer look and you will find a vibrant city full of art, music and culture.
Why more and more people are looking towards Hamilton
Whilst Auckland has long been a popular place for New Zealanders, the rising population is causing many people to begin to look elsewhere to settle down. For people who are looking to continue to work in Auckland, but would like to be able to come home to a quiet and relaxed lifestyle with a community vibe, Hamilton is the perfect solution. Located just over an hour from the Auckland CBD, Hamilton is a hidden gem with an abundant arts scene, top educational institutions, and coffee that warms the soul.
For those who love the rugby, Hamilton’s local team, the Mooloos’, is the pride of the region. Fans who come to support the team, brandish cow bells – a testament to the strong presence of dairy farmers in the region.
There is plenty of opportunity for work in Hamilton, as it is home to a vibrant shopping district, as well as the University of Waikato and New Zealand’s premier dairy company, Fonterra. For those wishing to find work outside of the city of Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland are both near enough to commute for work.
With a smaller city, comes a larger sense of community, and this is true in Hamilton. Hamilton is home to many community organisations such as Rotary, Lions club or even the Hamilton Laughter club. There are plenty of groups that you can join to make friends and feel a part of the community in Hamilton.
Choosing a home in Hamilton
If you are moving to Hamilton with a family then you should try to ensure that everyone is involved in the search for a new home. Sit down with your family and keep them up to date every step along the way.
To make the home search easier, you should have a list of requirements when looking for your new home. These requirements might differ for every person in your family. Maybe one of your children would like to be involved in the local rugby team, so would like to be close to a rugby field.
Maybe your partner would like to be able to walk to work, and so you need to be close to their place of employment. Maybe you would like to live on a street with lots of trees, or near a supermarket. Once you have this list, go and speak to a local real estate agent. They will be able to look at your list, and find you the perfect home that matches your requirements.
