    Most people are fixed on low rates though Ant so you are only talking about those floating or about to come off fixed who would be affected. And it is not going to happen for years according to all the global coneheads.

        Never learn..
        Gosh that's a bit tough. I'd say Dean has learned a lot:

        How to put everything in a trust.
        How to put everything else in your wife's name.
        How to cover you butt really really well.
        How you can go bankrupt 3 times and still act like a big noter - and many people will listen to you.

        I'd say he's quite clever in some respects!
        Squadly dinky do!

          No doubt he is clever to protect himself... but he has no regard for anyone else. He has been in the same tune of "Auckland prices will never drop or drop a little bit" for personal benefit disreagarding what would happen to poor souls follow him just like last time around.

            No one fixes long term here, most are on 6month to 2year rates. Say on average (averaging the 5 & 7yrs with the 0.5s and 1s) everyone was on 2 years, a quarter of them will be expiring within in six months. Then add on all the (probably few) floaters holding out for the next rate drop, and you're looking at big numbers, that keep getting bigger every month for the next two years. I'd argue a moderate but extended drop that keeps getting worse for two years is worse for the market than an immediate sharp dropoff that starts to improve quickly.

              I hope you aren't investing on that expectation...

                Legal verses moral.
                That was Trumps line also - going bankrupt was legal, why wouldn't you to get out of paying debt?

                  Yea, it is a bit reckless to state an opinion just as if it was a fact.
                  But if that's how he sees it, then he has a right to say it.

                    I assume you mean long term here on PT? Lots of investors in NZ are fixed long term. It just means things have to stay bad for longer before they feel any pain.

                        Not sure what you mean. I invest on the expectation that real estate will continue to double in value on average every ten years as it has always done. Not that I need it to but it's comforting.
                        And that Auckland is the most robust and safest market in New Zealand.
                        I certainly wouldn't be buying much in Auckland right now though until the banks and govt stop changing the rules every 5 minutes. I had enough of surprises in the GFC. But if I was starting out I would only buy in Auckland or Hamilton. And I would find a way to buy something now as it is only going to get dearer.

                        It's all well and good to be mindful of short term shocks and things that can happen, we are after all in uncharted waters. But it's dumb in my opinion ot be bagging Auckland as a market. it is bullet proof to use Gilligans expression for the foreseeable future.
                        Another few years it is likely to be even more similar to places like Melbourne and London where the rich can afford to live there and the rest can't. Only a global problem will stop or slow that process and it will of course bounce back anyway, that's the nature of real estate.

                            It will just keep going. Eventually wages will catch up a bit in the next slump but it just is what it is. Welcome to Auckland.

                              They've been predicting a crash for more than a decade. One day they'll be right, not sure when

                                So we shouldn't worry if DTI was 1:4.5 in Auckland. It will be fine just like London :P Bring it ON.
