New Zealand’s Southernmost city, Invercargill offers excellent lifestyle and investment opportunities, all at affordable prices. With all the benefits of city life and few of the drawbacks, this city of approx. 50,000 people has a solid economy with farming, horticulture and industry as economic mainstays and major employers.
A local emphasis on sporting achievement and free education through the Southern Institute of Technology has provided plenty of enticement for movement to the city. Council have set a goal of increasing the population by 25% over the next 30 years, a feasible target, particularly if mineral deposit projects currently in discussion become a reality.
The heritage buildings and warm Southern hospitality often surprise visitors to the town. The sporting facilities are excellent, and a big attraction for residents. Invercargill is also the gateway to multiple areas of interest including the Catlins, Fiordland National Park and beautiful Stewart Island.
Invercargill offers a lower cost investment alternative with a stable rental market producing good returns.
