Migrating to New Zealand - UK currency advantage

Share |
There was a story on New Zealand television tonight suggesting there were some 40,000 English planning a move to New Zealand. According to the report Hamilton, the 5th largest city is a popular destination for Brits at the moment. The reasons cited for coming to NZ was unemployment, a better life, better weather and the forex advantage. The British pound might be falling against the Euro, but the pound goes a long way in NZ.
The adjoining chart shows that the NZD is very weak against the pound, such that a pound will get you 2.8 NZDs. In Jan-2006 the exchange rate was even more favourable at 3:1. Its not such a big difference. The advantage of NZ is that a Brit can buy a house in NZ for as little as $NZ80,000 in places like Wanganui, Taumarunui and Otago. By implication asset-rich Brits can live here very comfortably, even if they do it just for a few years. Many Brits come here because they find it a better place to raise a family. Dad's are more relaxed, the working hours are less, but the salary is also lower. NZ runs on a different value system. Money comes a distant 3rd to relationships and sports here.
Clearly NZ makes more sense for people with a lot of assets or offshore income, as these are the people that profit from the low currency. Other nationals, whether Koreans, Americans, Japanese, Australians, Canadians and Europeans will also benefit from the currency advantage. Its that weak.

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.
