Tauranga Property Management

Tauranga is the largest city in the Bay of Plenty and one of the fastest growing centres in the country, with an urban population of over 130,800 people and 35% of people renting.

Tauranga’s housing market activity has slowed in 2017. An average house price is still a healthy $705,000. Even though sale volumes have dropped, home prices continue to rise. The average value has been pushed up because of increasing demand for $1 million+ homes and less transactions in low-end properties.

The lower price bracket often favoured by investors is impacted by LVR restrictions, banks tightening lending standards, and slightly higher interest rates.

If you’re one of the 11,000 Tauranga landlords, myRent can help to manage and advertise your property. myRent offers simplified, flexible, intuitive property management for only $17 per month and Tauranga property advertising on myRent,, OneRoof, Facebook, Trovit and myRent and for a one-off fee of $50, and Trade Me and listings for an extra $140.
