Implications of the Christchurch Earthquake to NZD

Share |
The cost of the earthquake is believed to be around $16 billion. The hit to the city is going to cause many people to leave. They can be expected to take their insurance payout and go to Australia. Expect about $3 billion of insurance funds plus another $1 billion in savings to go to Australia in the next 2 years. In fact some will stay here, maybe going to Auckland, if only because of the hit on the NZD will make Australian out-of-reach.
The bad news of course is that there is potentially more earthquakes to come. Escaping Christchurch might not be the solution either. The stresses being released along the Tasman Transform Fault might well shift to the North Island. Already there was a 4.5 magnitude earthquake in the Kapiti region. Of course escaping the plains and high-rise buildings offers some reprieve, so does avoiding brick (brittle) structures, or new earthquake-proof designs.
On a more positive note, Christchurch presents a fresh-faced investment to build a new city with a new image. That might take time, but it will also create new jobs, and imagine that a lot of businesses will be opening to replace those lost. Its a fresh canvas. The opportunity is also a huge risk if it lacks taste.

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.
