    I think you are 100% right Donna, I cant see any government correcting the median house price which is the only way to get kiwis into kiwi homes, no matter how low you make the interest rates. Its a correction or nothing.

    And to be fair Jacinda wasnt voted in and she didnt want the role.

    I can see economics forcing our hand though in 2020, I just dont know how long a correction would take to reach the rest of NZ which is still going up. Always like a Tsunami, Auckland being the epi centre lol

    how can you expect a correction

    when new houses cost more than old houses

    and there's no more empty land in the places people want to live?

    further to that if you think that;

    - building standards will continue to rise

    - wage costs will continue to rise

    - nz continues to be considered a better place to live than most

    how can prices not slowly start to rise again?

    to bring prices down you'd need;

    - too many existing houses

    - cheaper new houses, built to lower standards?

    - more land, loaded with free infrastructure, to suddenly appear where jobs were plentiful and people wanted to live

    clearly more than jacindamania and fairy-dust is needed for that!

    An unspecified "correction" is as vague a prediction as it gets.

    Perhaps a career as an econ-o-mist beckons?
