How do I find and inspect a property to rent?

There are a number of ways to find New Zealand rental properties. Many rental properties are listed on internet websites, including the First National Real Estate website.  If you don't have convenient internet access, you can also visit your local real estate agency branch, and ask to speak to the property rentals team.
