            A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data

            The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco.

            Seems like an irrational over reaction to the Wuhoo flu.
            Any excuse to grab power and curtail freedom.

              The Gov'ts reactions are unprecedented so it's hard not to believe the worst and that tens of millions could die from it if it's allowed to infect hundreds of millions of people simultaneously.

                Its inevitable that this is going to have an impact, how long and and low prices will go for is anyones guess, just make sure you can afford what ever it is you buy. A downturn is imminent!!!

                  I don't know whether prices will drop, or sales will just stall. Urgent sales will probably get a much lower price than they want. Certainly some bargains to be had. But I reckon everyone else will just wait for things to blow over rather than dropping their price expectations much. Just my baseless prediction.

                    Rather than all out selling, we are refinancing to free up capital in anticipation of any opportunities which may come up.

                    Even when this Covid 19 issue is under control, it is election year. If Labour remain in government (I have my own muted opinion on that, depending on leadership decisions that the National Party make) then it will not be seen as positive by property investors. There have been articles in the newspapers lately suggesting landlords should be considering rent relief to assist in this crisis and pass on any margin they receive from interest rate cuts, laughable as many landlords are now scraping through worse than their tenants and many have or are selling up.

                    I think it is a great time to buy, but not right away. I do not know what the signal is that it is the right time to buy, but I know it isn't now.

                      Hi
                      Dose anyone know if Tony is still doing his "reports" on the economy?
                      I enjoyed reading his stuff.
                      Thanks

                        Tony pulled the pin on his weekly updates a few yrs back . He now only does occasional updates.

                        But from what I read from him yesterday in the paper I think he's gone mad.

                          Is now a good time to buy? The answer is ... it depends.

                          What is your risk tolerance?
                          What is your cash flow situation?
                          What is your exposure to losing your job?

                            Personally I think wait because job losses could lead to a lot of mortgagee sales and prices plummeting.

                              10 per cent drop in property values predicted by Economists

                              A right proper correction is on its way for NZ property market and elsewhere around the globe.

                              Could be just 3.5 percent or as high as 10 per cent. Who does this favour? Investors cash up - for sure. First home buyers - if they're cashed up but if they're relying on their Kiwisaver - that's nose diving with market activity so there's less to draw on. Will Labour throw them a lifeline?

                              source

                              Early election I reckon and the property developers who can hang in there will do well once we're back in recovery.

                              cheers,

                                My super has dropped over 20% in less than three weeks. Wiped out a whole years worth of gains in 21 days. Thinking of changing from balanced to aggressive soon.
