    The usual way to find accommodation is either through the property agents or the small advertisements in the local newspapers. Living in the city is probably more expensive than living further out. What some people do to save money on rent is to share with others so maybe consider this option. To find some property agents you could look on our NZ Website List under Real Estate and then Rentals. Some of them, like Lugtons, may be centred on different areas away from Auckland, so just take a look through and see what you can find.

    Only registered today so I'm making a few posts and getting sidetracked!

    htp://www.TradeMe.co.nz is the main place people use to advertise rooms for rent, but most of them will be a room in a shared house.

    Other sites are :
    nz flatmates - Flats for Rent - Find a Flat or Flatmate - Flats & Flatmates Wanted - Flatshares, Flat Shares & Rentals
    nz flatfinder - list or find accomodation flats free with the nz flatfinder. flatmates wanted, property listings, flatmate wanted, vacancies, houses, homes, apartments, offices, For Lease, To Let, For Sale,flatmates wanted, property listings, flatmat
    Flatmates Wanted, Flats & Flatmates

    Compared to other western countries you are more likely to be able to find somewhere for a few months rather than having to commit to a 12 month lease. Not sure how these will stack up if you are looking for your own place.

    Rent in NZ isn't that cheap - you could pay $140-$350 NZD per week for a room easily in Auckland or Wellington....which is why many share!
