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

The Team Reporter from Stuff

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?

GREEN - A Colourful History

You may be planning to wear green this St. Patrick’s Day. Green, the color of kissing the Irish! The color of money! The color of… horrible, horrible death.

You may be planning to wear green this St. Patrick’s Day. Green, the color of kissing the Irish! The color of money! The color of… horrible, horrible death.

At least when it came to green dyes through the Victorian age.
In 1814, a company in Schweinfurt, Germany, called the Wilhelm Dye and White Lead Company developed a new green dye. It was brighter than most traditional green dyes. It was bolder. The shade was so jewel-like that it quickly began being called "emerald green." And women loved it. Largely because it was during this time that gas lighting, rather than candlelight, was being introduced. When women went out to parties at night, the rooms were considerably brighter than they had been only a few decades before. These party-goers wanted to make sure they were wearing gowns that stood out boldly — gowns in a shade like emerald green. People also began using it for wallpaper and carpeting. Victorian Britain was said to be "bathed in… green."

Unfortunately, the reason that dye was so striking is that it was made with arsenic...The effects of arsenic exposure are horrific. In addition to being deadly, it produces ulcers all over the skin. Those who come in close contact with it might develop scabs and sores wherever it touched. It can also make your hair fall out, and can cause people to vomit blood before shutting down their livers and kidneys.


So, this is probably one of the worst chemicals for a society to be "bathed in." This was obviously unpleasant for women who wore green apparel.
