COVID-19 Lockdown Level 2 Update

Ruby Housing is now open for business and operating with contact tracing and careful control of requested viewings at rental properties.

We are delighted that over 98% of our Ruby Housing tenants continued to pay their rent on time over the Covid 19 lockdown! The very few tenants who were waiting on financial help and were only able to pay part rent initially, let us know promptly so we could keep owners informed.

We have rented many homes over the lockdown period, at Levels 3 and 4, using online applications, video, and private viewings. If you are a landlord and have been left with a vacant rental, contact us today to find out how we can help. #propertymanagement

For tenants: We have a range of homes available now, from large 5 bedroom family homes, central city apartments, and a cosy 1 bed home near the beach. Most are unfurnished but some are fully furnished if this is what you require.

For your own safety and well-being we are offering private viewings to pre-approved applicants, and can answer any questions you may have about a property.

Call Ruby Housing on 03-379-5033 or email to office@rubyhousing.co.nz

Owners Testimonials


Owners: What Will My Property Rent For?

The first question many landlords have is what will my property rent for?

If you’ve been managing your own investments for a while you may not have looked at whether your rents are keeping up with the market. Private landlords will often leave rents as is, for fear of upsetting stable tenants. 

However it is possible to maintain fair market rent and keep good tenants. Our 3 - step rent review process keeps your investment up to date with the market, while also keeping quality tenants in the property.
