  1. Yep, absolutely. But I got out when the going...

    Yep, absolutely. But I got out when the going was good (2006 and 2007). I still have an investment property or two, but those I use as actual homes – so I don’t really consider them as such.

    But...

    What is interesting about this article is that it has been three years since the “bubble...

    I guess that makes you an exceptional New Zealand patriot.
  4. Bob, If that is so then it could easily be...

    Bob,

    If that is so then it could easily be classified as a Ponzi scheme. Either way, spragg101 needs to inform the law.

    If you saw an opportunity to help a fellow New Zealander avoid a...

    Spragg101,

    You were right to come here.

    The business plan you quote should be warning enough.

    Imagine this: you give me $40,000 and if no return or profit is realized then I buy you out...
  6. Well then. Let us know what you find out.

    Well then. Let us know what you find out.

    Shane D,

    Hostility is not a business plan either.



    I’m amazed you would feel the need to attack a potential customer. If I was to invest in this scheme I would ask for a business plan. ...
  8. Speights boy, I beg to differ. Shane D is simply...

    Speights boy, I beg to differ. Shane D is simply regurgitating a vanilla, good-practice, real-estate purchase, itinerary. None of it a real business plan. And by business plan I mean:

    · ...
  9. DaveW, That is not a business plan.

    DaveW,

    That is not a business plan.
  10. Though, this argument of the law and taxes are...

    Though, this argument of the law and taxes are just semantics. With the right advice and the right connections it can all be overcome just by jumping through a few legal hoops.

    The reason I...
  11. You misunderstand. I’m not trying to offend you....

    You misunderstand. I’m not trying to offend you. So don’t take offense.

    The statement: “Ignorance of the law is not an adequate defense,” is actually a common legal argument. Type it into a...
  12. Yeah, I suggest you get some real advice instead...

    Yeah, I suggest you get some real advice instead of something off a web-site advertising real-estate products.

    The best summary I can come up with about doing dumb things through your own...
  13. I’m not sure what you’re saying. Are you one of...

    I’m not sure what you’re saying. Are you one of Dean’s cohort’s? If so, the “double-tax” as you called it, only applies to people who are legally allowed to derive income from inside both countries...
  14. You can buy a house in any State in the USA. ...

    You can buy a house in any State in the USA. There is nothing to stop you from doing it – you don’t have to be a citizen either. I too know plenty of European’s and even a couple of New Zealanders...
  15. Donna, But there is much more that you...

    Donna,


    But there is much more that you don’t know about. I can go on…

    Dean, Kerry, and co. have not explained how one is to take advantage of the US market yet. By explain, I don’t mean...

    Donna,

    All investment is about tolerance to RISK.

    If the average yield is 5% -- (to purchase, and then rent this house out -- sight unseen – in the USA). Then an investor must consider his...
  17. Xav, Thanks, but I’m surprised no one has...

    Xav,

    Thanks, but I’m surprised no one has come foward and corrected the numbers. But yes, you are correct: that is exactly how Dean worked his numbers;however Dean left off some very crucial...

    Is that the standard formula used todetermine yield?
  19. Though, a better question would be is: how are...

    Though, a better question would be is: how are Dean and Co. actually doing business in the USA? Do they have work visas? The USA has pretty strict immigration laws, and a work visa in the USA is a...

    How did Dean come up with a yield value of 10.01% ??


    And yes, I can confirm that in the USA, rent is customarily paid on a monthly basis.

    Everyone forgets the early eighties –or was simply not born back then.

    There was a very large population shift out of the South Island and into the North during in the 1980’s. It was a financial...

    Ideas?

    Ideas for a fancy new city are not worth much if those ideas are not driven by market need.

    The government should never be involved in business other than to the extent of providing...

    Donna,

    The facts are simple. New Zealand home values are too high, and regardless of slow or nil home sales in NZ, property values still remain artificially high. And yet, in the USA, property...
  25. At first, I thought it a lark: New Zealanders...

    At first, I thought it a lark: New Zealanders buying property in the USA. Now I’m just plain amused.

    It feels like the early to mid eighties: foreigners buying up bad USA commodities -- much...
