The average New Zealand home owner could pick themselves up a lovely four-bedroom farm house in Brittany, France, or perhaps a 40-bedroom hotel in Veliko Tarnovo in Bulgaria.

That's according to'sFantasy Property Finder, which allows users to compare their house's price with those overseas.

If you sold your Auckland home for $535,000 (295,673 GBP) in February - the median price houses in the Auckland region sold for that month according to Real Estate Institute of New Zealand figures - you could buy a four bedroom apartment in Marrakech, Morocco, a three bedroom house in Phuket, Thailand, or a two bedroom flat in Budapest, Hungary.

Wellingtonians who sold their house for the region's February medium of $405,000 (223,837 GBP) could score themselves a nice one bedroom detached villa in Mendoza, Argentina, while if you sold your Christchurch property for the February median house price in that city of $383,000 (211,668 GBP) you could settle into a two bedroom apartment in Kuala Lumpur.
