Any idea why there no more results for Tauranga from Harcourts?

Because Harcourts' Tauranga franchise does not want to supply them for publication.

Obvious reason is Harcourt's aren't doing too well market-share wise in Tauranga

Jeez, I never knew that NZ was this rich.
And getting richer day by day.
It is almost unbelievable.

Whoever bought that house in Whitby for 440k got a bargain. Good for them.

well, one could say anything more and you're getting ripped off.

No results for CHCH either. Things must be dire at Harcourts.

Can we please hear about the non sales, those are much more fun.
