Pukekohe a property hot spot

Pukekohe is one area of Auckland feeling the heat according to Barfoot & Thompson’s latest list of ‘hot spot’ suburbs.
Pukekohe branch manager Nick Bates says the town is emerging as a hub in its own right and will continue to see investment in infrastructure and housing over the coming years.
“There is an overall feeling of energy in the town centre, and it’s backed up by big plans in the pipeline for transport, education and housing. In particular, a surge in new build homes is attracting more people to Pukekohe. They can have the perks of modern construction and a more rural lifestyle,” he said.
Managing Director Peter Thompson said the list includes a number of up-and-coming neighbourhoods, many in the midst of major growth and regeneration. “This list includes suburbs we haven’t seen in the running since 2016, and some completely new to the top 20,” Peter said.
Waiuku was 17th on the Barfoot and Thompson Auckland Hot Spot list.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
