The ethnic make-up of the area at the 2013 Census was: 58.1% European/Pakehas, 10% Maori, 9.7% Pacific Islanders, 28% Asians (includes all Asian countries). This means there is a much lower proportion of Maori and Pacific Islanders, as well as a much lower ranking on the social deprivation index, than all of the surronding suburbs (except Totara/Goodwood Heights). It is overall a middle-upper class area, although compared to the rest of "South Auckland", it is very much an upper class area!

    If you need any more info, feel free to ask. I am more than happy to help

    If you take the standard measurement $120,000 deposit (20%) on a $600,000 property in The Gardens, you will virtually afford nearly 0% of houses in the suburb, which basically means you need to stump up more money.

    It's a useful map and it allows you to make more practical decisions on where to live, what you can afford to buy or loan etc.

    $600,000 is what most first-time home buyers are looking at when buying. If you have more, like within the price range of high 700s- 800s, you will be comfortable in many nice suburbs in Manukau with plenty of good choices for homes.

    There are a few OK streets in Favona if that's really the price range you're looking at. However, if you can afford more, definitely go for a better neighbourhood especially when you have school-going kids.

    Sometimes, it just means having a smaller place and being creative about space. I'm sure you have no problem with that coming from HK! All the best!

    Can I ask why you said a 'large polynesian population' ?
