    Default House for sale in Tauranga

    Hi all, anyone want to buy a house in Tauranga?? We have reluctantly decided to sell our house now and Taffy and Welshgirl have very kindly allowed me to post a link to the agent here. Its a gorgeous house (5 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, impressive open plan kitchen/dining room - granite worktops, american style fridge/freezer, dishdrawer - air con, panel heaters in bedrooms, double glazing, fully landscaped section with views to Kaimais, Tauranga harbour and Mount Maunganui, on new development on city outskirts - major private hospital opened nearby in 2007)

    Property Advocates First National MREINZ, Owen S Phelps

    If anyone wants any more info on the property please do feel free to PM me, or contact Owen Phelps directly.

    Looks beautiful Maggie, but sadly out of our budget.

    Best of luck with finding a buyer ....

    A bit of an update - we switched agents a few weeks ago, and decided to try putting the house up for auction in mid June. Got a bit more interest in the house through the new agents (Bayleys), and today we have accepted an unconditional offer on the house. We aren't exactly cracking open the champagne and whooping with joy as its for a lot less than we were originally asking, but that's the way the market is in Tauranga at the moment, and we could not guarantee that anyone would come in with a higher offer at the auction as properties are just not shifting. We are looking at is very realistically and realising that it will enable us to close the chapter on our NZ adventure, and we can start re-building our life back here in the UK.

    Best wishes to everyone setting out on their journey, or already settled in NZ.

    Maggie and the Moos xx

    Hi Maggie,

    I guess thats good news in it's own way. Might not be what you wanted to get but as you say, it's done and dusted and now you can move on

    How's tricks back in Blighty these days, anyway?

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
