Residential Construction Increases: Residential and non-residential construction of new buildings has increased markedly across all the major regions, with Greater Christchurch's residential construction rivalling Auckland levels.
Auckland House Values and Rents: The dichotomy between Auckland's house values and rents is explored across the housing boom, the recession and more recent times.
