    Hi Wendy and welcome.

    To be able to immigrate to NZ you need to meet certain criteria before you qualify to apply for residency. It isn't just a case of deciding you want to live there. If you don't have close family in NZ who can sponsor you for residency, you would need to have specific job skills that the country needs. Have a read through this and see if you fit in with the requirements. If you don't have several years' experience in your work, you would need a good, solid qualification to get you in, which usually takes the form of a university degree.

    For an idea of house prices, you can look on our NZ website list under Real Estate where you will find links to property agents in NZ. Using their drop down menus you can navigate to find houses that you like in the area you would be interested in. Some of the links might be defunct because they were put on there quite a while ago but I'm sure there will be something for you to look at. To get an idea about the cost of living downunder, you could do a search for the terms 'cost' or 'living' and pick out the likely threads. We have had a few in the past.

    Sorry, no, only immediate family i.e. parents, brother, sister can sponsor you.

    I didn't understand the bit about the ex o qualifications so can't help there, I'm afraid.
