  • Good Point Terry…I just completed a Lease option here IN NZ (Today!) with $235/week nett cashflow….. and for various reasons the lenders were only going to give me finance at 14.75%… which would have cut me out of over $5,000/annum in interest…. So I went hunting and got a good main stream lender to gimme a business invesment finance for…[Read more]

  • you could try whacking some timber around the bottom skirt of the building (I am assuming it is on piles being a fibro)….. make a door for under house access … and paint it a half tone darker than the rendering work…. I am asuming you are using an earthy colour something like Stone Henge… or stonington Beige…….Should look pretty good.

  • Hey all … good comments here…..My swing on it is ….Just do something! Basically there are 3 ways that most people have in thier skillset to make money out of property:1. Buy and Rent – If the yeild is there…. this is typically in the down cycle or slump in the market2. Buy Renovate and sell or refinance… if you can't get cashflow then…[Read more]

  • All is in the eye of beholder….If you come from the side of the finance system that can get finance …. then it is hard to understand…. but if you put yourself in someone elses shoes that doe not have the opportunity …. then things change.Really if you think about it … it is like going into business and having to pay top interest (14.6%…[Read more]

  • I would do this….ONLY If you are certain of the discount is REAL!!!!!Get the property locked up  with a deposit bond and negotiate a 6-12 month settlement.with access to do renovations if necessary…. then get it financed on the new valuation in six months…. or sooner if you can prove a very significant rise in value by your efforts….. y…[Read more]

  • A couple of Ideas:- Go Below what you were looking to pay …. or – Offer your price and go for a soft discount (get them to pay 5% closing costs)… or- Offer discount price with a note paying more in 5 years… orOffer close to your price with a 6 month settlement + access for repairs and renovations…. this means you can add value without…[Read more]

  • Hey There,The beauty of these instruments are they are all flexible……. I tend to work out what the total payments over the term, (from the tenant) are and then work out an annual scale plan ….. if they go the whole 5 years … and they are paying say 500/week then I subtract the market rent (say 300 in this example) and the total amount of…[Read more]

  • Hey There,Try this….. Call the local council and speak with the local town planner.

It has still been a fun…[Read more]

  • Hi V8GHIA,Thanks for your encouragement!I am still finding deals in good areas in NZ that are in the 9% plus yeild range … and you are right though as it is the art of negotiation that brings the deals + the ability to screen quickly and sift through to those gems that have not appeared on the surface and work out how you can cut buff and shine…[Read more]
