    This is a key issue. Worst case, it's going to be a 'right to housing' in a country with 25% unemployment.

    Quite right. They will avoid accountability at all costs.

    Key question here is does the government expect landlords to extend the tenants credit, or is it welfare?

    A repeat of the cultural revolution? That would be interesting.
  5. I actually think they will get better,...

    I actually think they will get better, situationally at least. More regulation will create distortions that will be profitable.

    Just to add, with a CFD you can go up 30:1*, which if my maths is correct is more leverage than 99.1%. On forex, I've seen people running at 400:1.

    You may find this explanation of what leverage...
  7. Yes, it is easy. I put the answer at the end of...

    Yes, it is easy. I put the answer at the end of my previous post. If you want lots of leverage, you don't borrow and buy shares, you buy derivatives.

    You can also buy leverage ETF's.

    BTW, I'd...

    I simply think you are ignorant.




    This isn't what I said. I said, quite clearly, that you can achieve the same leverage with share as you can with property. You can actually go a lot higher...

    the area gets driven by the building coverage requirement. I believe it is 35% for SHZ, so no more than 175m2 of building on that site.

    There are quite a few requirements to address before this can be answered. You need to look at site coverage, set backs and all that stuff before you can be sure .

    In theory you can both split...
  12. Nonsense. Leverage can be used on shares just as...

    Nonsense. Leverage can be used on shares just as much as property, and sharemarket returns exceed those of property. The data on that is clear for many decades.
  13. The sharemarket has always outperformed...

    The sharemarket has always outperformed residential housing longer term, and requires far less work. This should not be a surprise.
  14. I'm not much interested in just buying a property...

    I'm not much interested in just buying a property just for renting. That to me is just an arbitrage between rents and interest rates. Over time it works OK for most, but I'm looking for more out of...

    If I didn't know better, I'd almost think you were saying Jacinda will cynically use a high profile personal event to leverage political advantage.

    It was a good call. It thought it was unlikely, but just got an offer at 3.4% for 2 years with some cash.

    There is one of these in Gulf Habour. I thinks it's about $1.4m

    Yes, large part of South Auckland are these houses from the 70s/80s. As i have said before, no one is interested in low cost housing. What they want is nice, designer houses in good areas at a...

    Prefab and factory build have been around for decades. Lockwood and Keith Hay for example. The simple truth is that isn't just isn't that economic to use factory builds in Auckland with land prices...

    Why are these builders you know not working in NZ? Given you do not believe any of the information I've posted, they clearly would be making a fortune. Perhaps you should be running a business...

    Funny enough, I've just made an offer on another property largely based on my confidence the current, and near future government policies, will continue to choke supply and we will see rents rising...

    I'll project manage it for you, given your lack of project management skills. A house is a lot smaller than my usual gig, but if your happy to pay my rate at $280/hr I'll help you out.
