From Morning Report, 7:19 am on 17 November 2017

Homeowners in one of Auckland's cheaper suburbs could find themselves out of pocket when their next rates bill arrives in the mail. The average value of Auckland properties rose by 45 percent in the council's latest rating revaluation, bumping the average value of a home in the super city up to just over $1 million. RNZ's Nita Blake-Persen visited Manurewa East, where values have jumped 62 percent.
