Transport, lifestyle & property in NZ

Share |
Life in NZ is surprising different from Australia. I didn't think so when I cam here 15 years ago. That was a superficial view based on first day's view. I even made the mistake of presenting $AUD to a carpark in Auckland City. But culturally it is different; even more so since Australia took on an ugly repressed pursuit of materialism. NZ preserves a nice balance of work and fun, relaxed living; how Australia used to be before the government started pump-priming the debt machine, giving baby bonuses, the illusion of tax cuts that didn't even adjust for all the inflation we didn't feel because food & energy were excluded from the index, and because our asset prices were soaring. NZ had that as well, but because all the ambitious souls went to Australia, it has remained remarkably protected from such trends, at least in a rural place like Wanganui where we purchases our place. My partner and I can't imagine such an idyllic place to life. It reminds me of those bars I'd discover when I was young which existed for just a few months before everyone would go there and ruin it. Maybe the same will happen to Wanganui. It might take some years yet because its just too far from Wellington to be destroyed. I guess the problem is a pre-occupation with money and material possessions. This is often liked in with some ugly psychology, e.g. the need to impress, to achieve security, not to mention arrogance and repression. You see it in city people who come to Wanganui. So why am I talking up Wanganui? Well the reason is to fight the tide that will overtake this town (small city) as new freeways and very fast train services in NZ to replace the poor train services that seem to under-service every English colony. :)
Wanganui is particularly attractive. Its well located; it has an attractive beach; its close to the city when you need it; it has lovely tree-lined streets, and cheap houses.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
