Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

Rare white and yellow pōhutukawa trees

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz
