Just an hour and a half from Auckland, Hamilton is located in the Waikato plain, straddling the Waikato River. Home to a great number of shops, restaurants and sporting venues, Hamilton offers the entertainment opportunities of a city set in a country town.
Home to a number of bars and restaurants arguably more trendy than Auckland’s much-touted Viaduct Harbour, and more cafes than Ponsonby Road, Hamilton is seeing more and more Aucklanders leaving the city for a less frantic way of life. A university town, Hamilton is infused with young life and atmosphere. Education is at a premium at the University of Waikato. Because of this, Hamilton also has a booming night-life, not just on rugby night. Though it is an agricultural center, Hamilton has increased rapidly in the past decade, with an excellent museum and wonderful gardens to add to its cultural offerings.
State Highway 1 bisects Hamilton, bringing a wealth of visitors in on day-trips from Auckland or up from Taupo and Rotorua. Once a ’suburb’ in its own right, Hamilton is coming into its own, hosting more and more business opportunities as its resident population increases. Residents can enjoy a city lifestyle while still purchasing lifestyle blocks and still enjoying an agricultural way of life, without having an hour-plus commute into Auckland City for work.
The best of both the city and the country, Hamilton is a prime spot for real estate investment. Parties interested in buying property in Hamilton may be eligible for finance. Please contact us about getting finance for property in Hamilton.
