    Default Less People Per House

    New Zealand: A nation of loners?

    Over that same five-year period that the number of single households increased, the median house price in New Zealand rose from $370,000 to more than $500,000 and the nationwide median rent rose by almost $100 a week.

    Default Just a Scenario - Not Going to Happen - Dhil Twitford

    Warning 2020 may be a tough year in rental market

In areas like Wellington city and Auckland city we reckon we will see record-breaking median weekly rents in the coming months as we head towards what we call March madness - when students return to the area for the university year and look for a new place to rent."

With rental demand still outstripping supply, LLs can pass on these additional costs to renters, which is keeping rental prices heading up further.

    That thwarted buyer will drive past the development in future years and know she dodged a bullet.

    Default Hello! Anyone Here?

    Apart from the farha-way distraction, none of this will be news to PT forumites. But given the amount of sound-dampening sawdust in the ears of the W'ton woonedheads, nothing will change.

    UN right about 'human rights' housing crisis, but wrong about the solution
    25 Feb 2020

    Quote Originally Posted by Stuff
    The government had invited UN special housing Rapporteur Leilani Farha to spend ten days visiting New Zealand. Farha suggested New Zealand needs a capital gains tax to keep housing costs in line. But a capital gains tax has never built a house. She also suggested rent freezes as a way of keeping costs down for tenants. But rent controls discourage investors from building new housing. And they also make it harder to deal with the existing shortage.

    Farha saw the problem as property price speculation. But the real problem is a massive shortage of housing. And that is an issue of the set of rules councils put in place which make it difficult to build new housing, and a set of institutions created by central government making it difficult for councils to accommodate growth. What we really need is a right to build, and the institutions to support it.

    We do not need a UN 'expert' in housing that seem utterly clueless. We have better experts right here. Minister Twyford was absolutely correct when last year he suggested the best way of dealing with capital gains is by allowing so much building that those gains never happen in the first place. It's time to build. And it's the right thing to do.
    And isn't it interesting that the UN's farha-way distraction has done so little homework as to suggest a CGT, oblivious to Taxcinda Tooth Fairy's announcement on the subject.

    Doh!?

    I have a real problem with somebody who says adding a tax on something will make it more affordable. Has it worked anywhere ever?

    A CGT is levied in a lot of places with expensive housing and hasn't stopped the housing being expensive.

    The adherents of a CGT are unbelievable stupid if they think that imposing one in NZ will produce drastically different results to other places it has been imposed. A bit like the loony commies who suggest communism is the best form of government, and when the abject failures are pointed out. Reply with it just hasn't been done properly yet. Blinded by ideology and can't see the obvious flaws that anybody with the smallest ability at critical thinking can pick up on almost instantly.

    Cheers

    Default Morons of the Nation Unite! (Under Labour)

    Spacie has it right and this cartoon - which I've posted more than a few times - epitomises the profoundly stupid within the ranks of the even more egregiously stupid socialist morons who are 1000% devoid of any capacity to learn from their innumerable mistakes. Or the mistakes of their congenitally idiotic progenitors



    As for the NZ gummint inviting yet another vacuous idiot - at taxpayers expense, no doubt - one wonder what Comrade Commissar Clarke had to do with such an asinine idea.

    Yes definitely that UN moron Leilani Farha needs to be sent packing . Her idea is that evictions should be illegal .Honestly this is the corrupt socialist "˙ou got it , we'll take it from you" narrative constantly coming out of the UN. High time we left this organization who are just looking for ways to extract more money to carry out its plan of global takeover.

    The best part of her visit - we the tax payers paid for it.
    The level of ongoing incompetence and stupidity from our public servants is just staggering.
