    "But what constitutes a housing market crash? ...... I define a property market crash as a 20% drop in the median sales price from market peak, and which lasts for more than 12 months."

    I agree with all you've observed, except for the mass delusion aspect. It is possible that some kiwis are delusional, but please, present company excepted, at least. Oh, I suggest squander would be a better word in place of your "splurge."

    Kiwis have mass delusions around Property ... as too why I can't find anything decent to buy that returns a yield worth the risks... looking forward to the Crash thats got to happen even though I'm sure the Commies will do their best to stop it happening and wouldn't be surprised if we see UBI talk come to the forefront in as floating rates blow past 7%... Cindy will blame Russians .... evil overseas oil barons , climate change , ageing population ,moon cycles ,the rich ,the national party , overseas influences on NZ productivity ,a Bad Flu ... COVID 23 , the Aussies , China , etc etc

    Anything but the actual Government thats pushed taxes and endless rules regs , lockdowns , massive overseas lending to spurge on green projects and working groups ...

    Addendum

    The plight of heavily indebted PIs or home-owners will likely be very painful, as inflation increases. But for PIs with little or no debt, any pain will be insignificant.

    As another PT thread avows, almost everything a Labour / Watermelon Party govt. does to ostensibly help tenants makes everything more difficult or expensive for tenants. Or both. Often a double-edged sword. (E.g. Higher rents and fewer rentals.)

    Both a Labour / Watermelon Party govt. are ever-incapable of learning from past mistakes or obvious o'seas examples of failure. They always think they'll be OK, because everyone else "did it wrong" and so they will do it right! This time!

    Tell us, Chris, does everyone have the same definitions?
    Especially the word bubble.
    Other words come to mind, like value.

    Much of what I see is just an inflationary change-in-numbers.

    E.g. The numbers on my insurance valuation certificate have increased.
    Is that a change of value, in any true sense?
    Consequence for me: a $2k premium increase.

    With CPI inflation running at the un-surprising number it is, I don't see anything cheerful ahead.
    Especially give comrade commissar RobUsome's hundreds of billions of gummint bond issues / borrowings.

    As I see it, he - for one - would welcome and find inflation a great thing.
    (Not that he'd ever admit that, of course.)
    In theory, it makes the pay-back look less forbidding.
    Nothing so nice as inflating debt away, eh?

    Warren Buffett on the housing bubble in the US:

    1) "the entire American public, eventually, was caught up in a belief that housing prices couldn't fall dramatically."

    2) "very very few people could appreciate the bubble. That's the nature of bubbles. They become mass delusions of sorts."

    Sorry. I should've checked. Tech fatigue. Tech's great when it works as we hope / want. With luck and a sprinkle of skill, I've fixed the glitch, now.

    Well, Chris, according to some - yes. See my PT post, here, in which the ANZ's airheads and drongoes aver that current housing supply growth was “far outstripping” new demand, describing population growth as “anaemic” with the border closed.

    Straight for the horse's mouth. Or maybe straight out of the other end of said horse?

    Really, who's kidding who? Or trying to?

    Idiots of the world, unite and march to ANZ (NZ) where employment opportunities are boundless for people with your qualifications.

    Many say that one of the early signs of a property price bubble is that too many houses have been built resulting in an oversupply of housing.

    1) has there been any area in NZ where too many houses have been built?

    2) are there any areas in NZ with an oversupply of houses currently?

    3) are there any areas in NZ with a potential oversupply of houses in the next few years?

    But if it goes on and on and on, then what? Just a trend . . . ?
    In light of current market conditions, this seems to be a very common perspective at the moment.

    I speculate that a property price 'bubble' only becomes discernible as such if and when it pops.

    But if it goes on and on and on, then what? Just a trend . . . ?
