A closer look at the Western Ring Route

We take a closer look at our rental data over the past six years for suburbs surrounding the Western Ring Route.

For background information on the Western Ring Route project, watch this video from NZ Transport Agency.

  • Data from the past six years shows that many suburbs along the Western Ring Route have consistently had a much higher gross rental yield than the Auckland average for two and three bedroom properties.
  • Manukau, Manurewa, Mangere and Takanini are among the suburbs who have consistently had a much higher than average gross yield, and this continues to be the case. 
  • Hobsonville has had a fluctuating gross yield, possibly due to the increase in new building in the suburbs and fewer properties for sale and rent historically.
  • Waterview is a small suburb and also has historically had a fluctuating yield with few sales or renters.
  • In West Auckland, Ranui, Massey, Royal Heights, Henderson and New Lynn have gross yields above the Auckland average.
