Buying & selling property in NZ - and the currency decision

Share |
What is the outlook for the AUD:NZD? A pertinent question don't you think since so many Kiwis are looking to go to Australia? The press are of course trying really hard to convince New Zealanders to stay at home. Just like the churches they are presenting a lot of SCARY!! stories about Kiwis living on the poverty line in Australia.
Just in case anyone has forgotten. Australia is taking NZ's best workers, not its worst. Those on the poverty line are clearly people who didn't have a realistic sense of their own worth. This is not surprising of course. Australia is a competitive market, and NZ's are inclined to lack a good work ethic if they are not accustomed to living in a competitive market. i.e. A person coming from a country town, accustomed to spending 20 minutes talking to others at the local post-office will have an adjustment.

No, if you have useful skills, then you will find a place in Australia. The following chart suggests however that your chance to move your wealth over to Aussieland is quickly disappearing. The NZD seems destined to fall back to 0.68AUD in the next 6 months as the Australian economy regains strength.

NZD doldrums is of course good news for Aussies looking to buy property in NZ. NZ are eager sellers, whether to move to Australia, or because of the rural drift to the cities, or simply because the 'batch' is quickly turning into an investment nightmare. What is the rationale for living in NZ, or having a house here? Well, depending on where you buy, it could be easy an investment or lifestyle property. Land rates are padded with welfare here, i.e. $1800, so its best to factor that in. Retirement probably makes the most sense. There are many motels for sale or lease. My favourite locations are Rotorua, Wanganui and Nelson, and of course Queenstown if money is no issue.

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.
