Over the last 12 months or so, we have seen price decreases in some suburbs of Auckland, but the market now appears to be stable/flat. There are still discounted deals available, particularly from vendors who are under financial stress. Due to Auckland’s growing population, high employment, higher wages and supply-demand imbalance, I don’t see any major indicator causing further price reductions (unless we suffer a left-field global economic event).
3. Rents are increasing
Increasing rents means improved cash flow for Auckland investors, so buy-to-hold yields are starting to look better.
Hello Matthew, I am just wishing you the best of success with your excellent book Property 101. It is very rare that I come across a book on real estate that is in the league of other financial securties writer's. Thank you for taking the time and more importantly writing about real estate in a easy to read manner. I am still learning after 30 years in real estate. I am also a true contrarian like yourself and have learned this art from my favourite contrarian, Jim Rodgers (Former Quantum Fund). I have been preaching this to our Investor net work and corporate clients for some time, but most find it very hard to-do. Thanks again! Kind Regards, - Chris Kerr - The New Kids On The Block Pty Limited - October 2015
