I’ve lived within a five-minute walk to the beach for the last few years in a great little cottage, that I’ve made my home. So, you can imagine how I felt when I heard that it was going on the market. Not currently able to purchase a house, I now was faced with the difficulty (like so many others), to try and find another rental in this challenging market. So, it began, the trade-me searching, putting it out there to friends, current colleagues, past team members, and anyone that wanted to listen to my woes.
Like most of you, I have read the articles and seen the news reports on how tight the rental market is nationally, and here in Hawkes Bay, well, that has become my new reality! I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.
