If you are thinking about moving to New Zealand, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"The average cost of housing in New Zealand is generally quite high, with prices varying depending on the location and type of property. Generally, the cost of buying a house in New Zealand is significantly higher than renting, with the median house price in the country currently sitting at around NZ$650,000. Renting is more affordable, with the median weekly rent for a three-bedroom house in New Zealand currently sitting at around NZ$450," remarked another expat in New Zealand.

"We lived in China before New Zealand, so housing and automobiles are much cheaper, but meat and vegetables are much more expensive," said a member in Dunedin, Otago - South Island NZ, New Zealand.
