    Default Who is buying Auckland Houses

    Tony Alexander did his report on who was buying houses a few months back, which made me curious about if there was any other data we could get that would give further insight into this.

    The below file is a list 400+ Houses purchased on Auckland's North Shore in the last 6 months with the addresses and owners names

    Does this data support his views? I would be interested in peoples analysis.

    Wow can't believe he made that public. Where did he get it from?

    And what was his view at the time?

    This Data is public information.... but his views are that a figure of just 3.6% of buyers nationwide from overseas and not intending to live in New Zealand.

    Commenters on the interest.co.nz website have tended to be very sceptical about the results from those surveys. But Alexander's not budging on his view.

    “Well, I say bring on YOUR results. Not a single person has come to me with anything other than some sort of sprawling anecdote about the Chinese taking over the world. Come to me with your survey. It only has to be Auckland for instance, showing the proportion of house sales that are going to people overseas. Chinese, poms or whatever.”

    But seriously, this is a pretty tricky exercise. For a start, how do you separate out those "from overseas and not intending to live in New Zealand" compared to those who are going to live in NZ. How do you separate out the pommy names?

    Yes Davo, that's the hard question. How do we get the real data that tells us how many of our houses are being bought by overseas owners and money, which are two areas of concern for people.

    The make up of the top 25 sales people should give you some more insight as to what connections Barfoot's are actually mining . See link below

    No no no McDuck, that's just coincidental. Nothing to see here, move long now.
