I can't see tight finance, tougher tax rules, reduced investor confidence, banned foreign buyers, and a climate of investor bashing and increasingly negative media being a positive environment for property in the next couple of years. Add to this we were at a cyclical peak in 2017 heading into a well-predicted cyclical downturn for Auckland in 2018, with the rest of the country being typically 1-2 years behind the Auckland cycle.
I'm sure there will be other pockets of growth around the country, but residential investment property in Auckland is overcooked and must be flat to declining for at least a few years, if not 4-5 years. After that, rents will rise, household incomes will rise, and what is expensive today will become more affordable as incomes catch up to stalled asset values, and we can thereafter see more growth. But it's 5+ years away.
Yes, it was a very informative and structured workshop. I have attended a few Matthew's presentations and workshops and they are always very structured, easy to follow and understand. That was the reason why I switched to GRA a few years back after attending one of his presentation, I thought he was just brilliant. Many Thanks. - Tatiana
