Buyer puts The Block’s win­ning house up for rent

Waikato Times - - Business -

A buyer who spent $1.009 mil­lion on The

Block NZ’s win­ning house this year is of­fer­ing it up for some­one else to live in. Amy and Stu’s house at 27 Frances Bry­ers Rd in Hob­sonville, Auck­land, at­tracted the high­est price un­der the ham­mer when the tele­vi­sion pro­gramme’s prop­er­ties sold ear­lier this month. The cou­ple fin­ished the sea­son of the show with win­nings of $169,500. Now the three-bed­room, twobath­room townhouse is listed for rent on Trade Me at $820 a week. Prop­erty man­ager Shan­non An­stis, from Ray White Aus­tar Prop­erty Ser­vices, said the house was bought by a friend of a Ray White agent who planned to keep it as a ren­tal prop­erty. The pur­chase set­tle­ment was not un­til the end of the month but al­ready she had re­ceived an ap­pli­ca­tion from a prospec­tive ten­ant. She said there was strong de­mand for ren­tal houses in the area.
