  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.
