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.

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?

"Kia ora – Kapil Mathew from New World Te Puke here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Music Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a new one that I discovered thanks to their place on this year’s Top 50 list, and one I highly recommend others to try for themselves. I enjoy it because it has beautiful fresh aromas of pineapple and guava with a nice crisp finish of citrus and melon. I would pair this wine with spicy, grilled and seafood dishes - pop in and grab a bottle next time seafood is on the menu in your house.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
