High five for a house?

House prices in Auckland are pretty outrageous at the moment and it's hard to get a deposit together. So one Trade Me member decided to take matters into his own hand(s) to get on the property ladder in the City of Sails by selling a high five.

When asked how good his high fives are JP told one Trade Me questioner "I've been told in the past that I have a amazing hi-five, but not sure if I can trust family to give an honest review. I've started watching "hi-five fail" videos on YouTube for what not to do, this should help me on the day. But if I truly had to rate it I'd say 9.8... because there is always room for improvement."

It was a big sell and a great idea that saw JP raise $151 towards his home and rack up nearly 10,000 views.

Here's hoping it helped him get a hand on the property ladder (see what we did there?)
