  1. Elliot Shayle says:

    Are most Auckland residences, apartments/flats, and what is the quality of them? By this I mean what size are they and what amenities and views do they have? Also what is the range of prices within each administrative region?

  2. No most auckland houses are stand alone 3 bedroom dwellings squeezed into someones backyard.

    There are allot of apartment options in the city centre, not much in the way of terraced houses
