Looking back on Christchurch...

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

It's been 13 years since the 2011 earthquake - a day many of us will never forget.

If you'd like to look back on Christchurch as it was before the earthquakes hit you may wish to head to Google Maps today and see past images of your old school, workplace or favourite haunts.

How to do it:
- Head to Google Maps and click the yellow man icon in the bottom right corner.
- If you search an address or location then move him to a spot on the map, it brings up Street View.
- There is a black menu and usually an option to "See more dates". You can view that spot on the map in past Google street images.

Feel free to share any of your finds on Neighbourly for others to see!

Stop paying too much!

The Team from NZ Compare

The affordability of everyday items just keeps increasing!
If it’s not the petrol prices, it’s the cost of food, insurance or rates and let’s not get started on mortgage interest costs!

From our recent poll, it shows that over half of people are paying more than a 6% mortgage interest rate. Home loan interest rates don't stay the same for long these days and it’s causing many households to feel stressed out.

Could you be saving thousands of dollars a year? If you don't check, you don't know. Get a FREE mortgage health check through Money Compare and find out. If you could save money, why wouldn’t you right?!
