Buying products in NZ

Share |
Living in NZ poses several problems or challenges. Among the biggest challenges are:
1. The high cost of products - clearly price mark-ups are very high because retailers are unable to get adequate returns, but more likely its a case of inadequate competition. Thus the company with the best distribution-sales model wins the bulk of the market.
2. The small range of products - there is a small amount of product to choose from.
3. The low currency - the NZ dollar has weaken considerably over the last 50 years. NZ used to attract premium prices for its exports. Today, its terms of trade are far worse.

If one chooses to NZ there are few opportunities to overcome these unfavourable challenges, but there are several common approaches:
1. Second hand goods: There is the opportunity to buy products online at sites like TradeMe, or from garage sales.
2. Buy online: There are opportunities to buy products online direct from the manufacturer. The attraction of this strategy is that you are buying direct from the manufacturer, or near-so, you are avoiding a huge mark-up by the distributor and retailer, and you have a far greater range of product to choose from. Living in Australia & NZ I am accustomed to a lack of product choice. Online the choice is wide-ranging. There is a trust issue finding a credible manufacturer, so you need to search for a credible supplier online. My GF does the marketing for Modern Tailor, but you can find others online. They sell tailor-made business shirts online.

There are of course a great deal of products which can be bought online. There are however logistical, order size, risk and other issues buying online from some suppliers, so its nice when there is a business who offers an online presence which offers all the convenience you could want.

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.
