  • hmm..

    this time last year there were 6 vacancies in volt and the average rent was maybe $350pw

    today there are 19 vacancies advertised in volt and the average rent is about $410pw

    that jump in central city prices happened about april last year not the end of last year

    but right now there are a lot of empty units

    and for those owners, each week empty at the higher rate will take a month to catch up...

                Very interesting article.

                Fonterra must be a champion in China

                NZ dairy company Fonterra is at risk of being outclassed on its own home turf if it doesn't rapidly develop a strategy to launch high-quality New Zealand brands into the fast-growing Chinese markets.

                  • Come 2021 and this '1.3m' property; just how much will the income need to be in order to support an 80% mortgage?
                    You will need twice the amount of what's required today, unless you own it of course.

                    The typical couple clients have combined annual income of about NZ$160,000 and want to buy a house in the NZ$500,000 to NZ$600,000 range, equivalent to about four times their income, said Bolton.

                    • Rodneys Ravings point to no under supply and in fact a normal demand / supply balance, with maybe some excess in auckland and some lift in prices, to fall back over time.

                      And the lack of building of houses, simply as there is no demand for them, if people want to build there are plenty of sections they can build and get a house built.

                      • Trouble is the banks are being cautious about who they lend to and the Super City council is covering its backside like there is no tomorrow (heard one tale of a developer being asked what type of sprinkler system will be installed .... in an outside retaining wall!

                          Isn't that what they are supposed to do?
                          Finance companies were notorious for not being cautious.

                          John Bolton, principal and advisor at Auckland-based mortgage broker Squirrel, said bank risk appetite for higher LVR loans had clearly improved since 2009-2010. Bolton said, however, the banks are being more conservative with their borrowers than they used to be, seeking job stability, good debt servicing ability, good incomes, a genuine saved deposit of at least 5%, and people who don't have much other debt.
                          As prices rise, and if incomes do not also rise sufficiently, the banks will have fewer people to lend to.

                          • Hi everyone. It is great to see a few familiar posters here and a more constructive type of posting. We lost everything including our family home. We had 7 income streams worth over $3million, but they were -$8000 cash flow per month. We were trading to top up the difference. GFC came, trading stopped, and could not find the -$8000 per month. Document servers, fire sales and a mortgagee sale later, we are still trying to get back on the property ladder, but with a greatly enhanced understanding of financial literacy (basics I might add). I recently entered a (Wealth Dynamics) short story competition and it outlines the last few years and what I am up to now for those who are curious.
