Why has this Tauranga home been on Trade Me for 10 years?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Most people listing their properties hope to see a sale within a matter of weeks – the sooner the better. But one Tauranga couple have been waiting 10 years.

That's how long their 1.61ha Welcome Bay lifestyle property has been listed on Trade Me, which makes it the longest current listing on the website.

Why do you think the property hasn't been snapped up? Would you keep your home on the public market for a decade? How has the Tauranga property market changed in the last few years?

Buy-back and amnesty for prohibited firearms and parts

Bay of Plenty & Taupo Police

After changes to firearm laws, the government introduced a six month amnesty period. This means that anyone with firearms and parts that are no longer legal have until 20 December 2019 to hand them in to Police.

Police are providing a number of ways for people to hand-in their firearms or parts, including Police-run collection events - bit.ly...

If you can’t make a collection event, check whether there is a dealer near you - bit.ly...

If you think you have a unique prohibited item and are eligible to apply for compensation, find out how you can do that here - bit.ly...

Some firearms can also be modified and there is also a list of approved gunsmiths eligible to do the work - bit.ly...
