Māori home ownership

People of Māori ethnicity who have remained at their current address for more than five years are much more likely to own their homes than Māori people who moved. Less than half of Māori non-movers own their own homes, but this drops to less than one fifth for Māori movers.

For both movers and non-movers, affordability is a factor. Home ownership is lowest in the Auckland region and highest in the West Coast and Southland regions. Similarly, main urban areas, which have higher proportions of rental accommodation, have lower levels of ownership than the smaller urban areas and rural areas.

There are variations by region. For example Canterbury region has higher home ownership among movers than Otago region, but among non-movers Otago is ahead of Canterbury.
