  1. Hi,
    You listing doesn’t include Central Wellington (Kelburn area). What would be the cost of an unfurnished 3 bedroom house on Kelburn?

  2. 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.

  3. 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).
