Default Help wanted - finding rented in Wellington

Heeeelp

We are looking for rented property in Wellington, preferably the Eastern suburbs but are having problems finding something that will allow us to lease for a few months until we buy a house.

Does anyone know any companies that will lease for under a year?

Any help very much appreciated

Kerry

PS Happy New Year to you all

I cant see that it has changed that much in 4 yrs, but when we first arrived in Auckland and were looking to rent we had no problems finding short term leases. All the major estate agents had properties for 6 months or more on the books. We ended up taking one for a year but we knew we wanted it for that long, after that we renewed 6 months at a time. Also, might be worth looking at rentals on Trade Me?
Hope you find what you are looking for. How long have you been here now? I might have you confused with another couple but it isn't long is it?

Hi Jude, yes your right, we have only been here for a month, we are living at my partners sisters but would like our own place for now.
Had a look on Trademe, found a couple of places but were a years lease. Apparently many are like that as winter gets very quiet and there are lots of rentals available therefore they can tie people in during the quiet periods. We were looking for fully furnished to begin with but due to the lack of these available, we will just buy second hand stuff from trademe until we find a house of our own and then will get all our own stuff out of storage

Hi Poppets


Thanks for your response. Not had much luck today, rang quite a few property management companies and they have advised that there is not much about as they are getting snapped up. One company seem to have a few but its a one off $90 subscription charge so will need to look more into that. Tried looking under Ray White but did not find anything available for our area but will try on net again tomorrow. I'm not sure if they go through Realestate, looked at some many my mind is a blur

Have you looked in the local papers? Also try calling the offices rather than looking on the net, as you can imagine they don't update it everyday, make freinds with the property managers and let them know you are nice, respectable and not gonna smash up the place then hopefully they will give you a ring when places become available.

Rang others in paper, some have gone already, left ans. machine mess for others to call us. Now going to ring some more property managers and will try grovelling very nicely . I know I wont smash up the place .... but not sure about my 11mth old ha ha but we wont mention that to anyone Kerry
