Times are tough for renters

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

If you're looking to secure a rental property, get ready for a competitive and expensive time.

New figures say the number of Trade Me inquiries on rentals is on the up, and with the number of available properties decreasing, significant price jumps are expected in the coming months.

Auckland's median weekly rent rose to $560 in July, while in Wellington the median weekly rent has risen 10 per cent year-on-year to $530.

Are you having a hard time finding and affording a rental property?

A Heart of Steel

The Team from Neighbourly Property

Treasured by the current vendor for the last 25 years, it's now time to move on. Constructed with steel framing this private and peaceful property is set over two levels. The open plan upper floor layout with kitchen, living and dining flows to a sunny north east facing deck. The lofty high stud, let's all-day natural light flood into this space. Sharing this level is a generous master bedroom, with walk-in-robe and ensuite. On the lower level are two double bedrooms, which share a family bathroom and the lofty entrance offering an inviting feel to this home. The double internal access garage with storage and workshop space leads you to the low maintenance garden that wraps around the home. Privately located off St Heliers Bay Road and very close to local amenities. Zoned for St Heliers Bay Primary School and Glendowie College, both in walking distance, with St Heliers Beach and village, with local shops and reserves on your doorstep.
