With Auckland house prices as crazy as they are - first time home buyers and investors are moving their searches to our smaller Waikato towns and we have noticed a large surge of inquiries coming from families moving to Te Awamutu.
"Ken Hagan director of LJ Hooker in Te Awamutu, said there was no doubt the Auckland buyers were coming to Te Awamutu and estimated 60 per cent of open day attendees hailed from outside the Waipa rose town."
Te Awamutu is a beautiful town situated a 2h 15m drive South of Auckland and an easy 30m drive to Hamilton and between November and April the town lives up to it's name with over 2000 rose bushes blossoming across the road from the Visitor's Center.
The area has great walking tracks, hiking opportunities, a great range of shops, good schools and plenty of parks for the young ones. Visit www.newzealand.com for more information.
If you are moving in or out of the Te Awamutu area, give us a call for a free relocation quote. We can also quote to pack your belongings and unpack them for you - so you can start to enjoy this beautiful town as soon as you arrive.
