    There are a lot of baby boomers, current and soon to be moving out of Auckland and buying in the regions. How much income do they bring in to the area? Not alot I would say. They have their living costs but they aren't working and so therefor not contributing in that sense to the economy.
    However having said that, experience in both Hawkes Bay and Whangarei currently are experiencing a shortage in the trades, which is just as well as there are a lot of tradeys moving out of Auckland to get work.

    Is the impact of property investors buying in these these rural towns having any impact?

    Kawerau residential real estate has seen some dramatic price rises in recent years.
