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.

  1. Stephen Riley says:

    Just out of interest, how much would a 5 bedroomed house rent for in Tawa. Thanks Stephen Riley

  2. Hi,

    Market rents for 5 bedroomed houses in Tawa are not easily available from the Tenancy Services Division as the number of bonds received is very low for this property type. However in the July – December 2012 period, 6 bonds were received for 5 bedroomed houses. The average market rent was $515 per week (upper quartile $530 and lower quartile $440).

  3. Hi. I am looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom house or f;lat for me and my son. I am 47 years ol and my son is 23 years old. We are looking for a place for us because we are living in a 1 bedroom flat with my daughter and her 2 children and it is getting really cramped up in the flat. She also has 2 extra adults as well living under the same as we are. Please help me and my son to look for a place somewhere in porirua please. The amount of rent that I can pay is between $150 to $250 a week and my son will help me pay for the power and food. Thank you.
