Hi neighbours, a landlord who is offering two properties for free to families in need during the coronavirus pandemic is calling on other landlords and property developers to do the same.
Just before the country went into lockdown at 11.59pm on Wednesday, a five-bedroom home in Auckland's West Harbour was listed on Trade Me for just $1 a week.
Owner Angela Olsen said she just wanted to do her part to help stranded families during the next four weeks and would do it for free.
What do you think of this? Do you believe other landlords would be in a position to do this too?
Hi Neighbours, It might be raining but the record dry which is depleting Auckland's water supply is not going away in a hurry. Is it "just a dought?": Read the story below:
My wife Denise Monteguti Dias lost her wallet at New Lynn Fresh or Laundromat on 3 Margan Ave. Please, if anyone finds it, please let me know. Thanks.
Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...
At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.
Well, they weren't wrong there.
Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.
As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.
