Notes and Definitions
• Cheaper: One-quarter of properties rent for less than this price.
• Average: This is the median price
• Dearer: One-quarter of properties rent for more than this price.
Prices include social housing, so ‘cheaper’ levels of market rents are unlikely to be found in the private sector in some suburbs. Properties are often let from January for 12 months, hence there is often an increase in rents at the beginning of the year.

Comments

  1. Hi, I have a three bedroom home in Massey West, Waitakere (Still paying mortgage off). Could you tell me how much I can expect to rent out two of the rooms. E.g 1 person wants to rent both the two rooms, also facilities would be shared, plus garage storage, carport for the tenant, Use of kitchen, bathroom, laundry and cupboard storage in hallway/kitchen/laundry. Rooms are both single sized?

    How much can I reasonably expect for rental of 1 room and two rooms?

    yours sincerely

    • Hi Mary,

      For your specific circumstances, a local real estate agent may be the best person to advise you on the rent to charge as they can take into account exact area, condition and size of rooms.

      Looking at the tenancy services median market rent figures for one room in Waitakere, the median rent ranged from $157 to $220 a week. Since you would be renting out two rooms to your tenant, I suggest you could charge a little more.
