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.
Properties are often let from January for 12 months, hence there is often an increase in rents at the beginning of the year. The data shows market rents for non-government owned properties for which Tenancy Services holds information. Any category that has less than five bonds lodged has been excluded, to prevent individual properties being identified.

    I am currently living in Singapore and considering accepting a job offer in Dunedin. I will not be bringing any furniture with me and really don’t want to purchase a lot of furniture in Dunedin.
    Can you advise how difficult it is to rent a fullh furnished house?
    Regards Shane

  2. Hi thanks for providing this surface it is very helpful.
    I’m planning to go to Otago Uni in 2014 so wanting to flat near uni campus. I will have to rely on walking and busing my way around so looking for:
    * Area where bus system is convenient (comes every 15 min or 30 mins straight to central city)
    * Safe area especially near evening time.
    * Sunny houses where it’s condition isn’t too uncomfortable eg poor insulation, leakage etc…

    Thank you again for your time, very appreciated!

    I want to know how much that it cost for a month. thank you for your time.

    • Hi Sonia,

      Looking at the market rent figures for Dunedin, the minimum amount to rent in Dunedin for a room or a one bedroomed flat would be $200 a week which would work about to be around $850 – $900 a month.
