HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC.

Trish Lawrence ph 0800 874 745 CHECKLIST FOR SELLING YOUR HOME MAKE SMALL FIXES Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges. SET A PRICE A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free of charge or commitment. Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that have sold in the past six months. Check out comparable listings yourself in the real estate section of your newspaper or on websites. Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or the highest possible price. CLEAN & DECLUTTER Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage— so the house seems more spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it. 3 1 - 15 LYNN STREET, OAMARU Price: $146,000 Web: ljhooker.co.nz/FS6GF3 Currently returning $240 per week 2 1 - 357A THAMES HIGHWAY, OAMARU Price: BEO $146,000 Web: ljhooker.co.nz/FTWGF3 Currently returning $260 per week STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free. READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight.
