If the exact address you want to add doesn't display in the address finder, you can add this address manually by following the steps below.

Step 1: If you have tried searching your address and it doesn't come up, please select the blue "Can't find your address?" link

Step 2: Search for an adjacent address that comes up in the search bar and select it.

Step 3: Fill in the details of your address that you want to add and select "Next"

Step 4: Continue with the process of creating your listing

This process is especially helpful if:
- you have a specific apartment or unit number that won't show;
- you have a granny flat that is being rented out separately to the main house (e.g. try adding a letter to the street number to show that it is an independent unit);
- the property you're trying to advertise is a new build, and the NZ Post database is yet to be updated.
