  1. The thought that 'cashflow properties' never go...

    The thought that 'cashflow properties' never go up in value, or go up in value slower than 'capital gain' properties can't possibly be true in the long term.

    I've said it before, but there's a...

    High prices and quick price growth show there is demand in excess of supply, quite a distinction from just demand itself.

    It can (and arguably is, in Auckland) be due to a poor way of running an...

    Isn't there another thread here about Auckland dropping 4%?

    ANZ and ASB are both about as competitive as you'll get here. From memory it's 0.3% fee, with a minimum $30. Though I haven't bought anything in a while.

    No one's mentioned it yet, so maybe I'm out of date, but aren't they still having trouble insuring things in Wellington? That would certainly be an issue. Most banks require you to have your house...

    Put a lot of time and effort in, or put almost no time and effort in and hire a property manager. Depending where you've bought a property manager can either be a terrible waste of money or a...

    This is one of my points - it's very difficult to be sure. The law is not clear, purely so people can't just adjust their circumstances accordingly.

    You're correct that some freeview decoders require a UHF aerial. Had one, was excellent.

    To my knowledge you're not required to provide TV access to a residential rental.
