As Auckland's housing market continues to climb, its residents are looking to cheaper areas where they can commute from.

This has caused house prices to increase in Waikato/Bay of Plenty by 22.1% compared to a year ago.

Hamilton Mayor Julie Hardaker says her city is struggling to provide the necessary infrastructure needed to cope with the massive influx of people buying and building property.
