  • thanks steve.
    i just sold out on my nz property, i bought my last one for 96k in august, just signed off on the contracts to sell for 118k.
    not bad for 3 months work.
    i only spent about 3k doing the place up.
    i also agree there are still deals there, when i was on the kiwi adventure (2) i found a 14% yeilding property but instead of buying it i…[Read more]

    rotorua continues to grow as well, bought a place there 3 months ago for 96k sold it 2 weeks ago for 118k, and i only spent 2k on reno’s!
    rotorua has a lack of quality and cheap housing at the moment which is pushing house prices up very nicely! [suave2]

  • i must be reading this all wrong, i didnt see anyone criticising the results programme.
    i would have joined up but i was in new zealand at the time doing [biggrin].
    i would be interested (like others) as to some details, perhaps telling us how its structured?
    what are you learning, is there homework, are you being held accountable?
    just curious…[Read more]

  • hi all, i too had a blast. didnt buy anything though. another contract fell over yesterday, so it leaves me with 4 left on the table.
    wish i’d put an offer in on that14% yeild as soon as i saw it rather than dithering around.
    i was due back in nz next friday but i cant shake the damn flu. i will have to wait another week after it just to sort…[Read more]

  • you’re absolutely right!
    i have found a way around it, but it involves using a nz local as the majority stake holder in a nz company. even then my accountant cant tell me for 100% certain whether i will get away with it.

  • I’m setting up the same sort of thing in new zealand. we dont source property, we dont sell you property, but we do pick you up from the airport, organise accomadation and transport. and ensure that you’re paperwork is in order before buying over here.

  • hi all, its shaun from canberra.
    i’m coming along too!
    i just found out yesterday (wednesday)
    i was in auckland on the weekend, when i ran into dave and steve. after some gentle persuasion (i offered dave a signed copy of a book i’m in) he said i could come along.
    as i was networking over there anyway at the time. ive organised transport. a…[Read more]

  • just revalued a property i have up there in larrakeyah, bought for 210k now worth 265k.
    rents are finicky and if you dont buy in the right area you will have long vacancy periods. go for properties that the locals want to live in, not the tourists.
    vacancy rates for larrakeyah are currently at zero!
    cheers

  • firstly my background, i am speak timorese and have been over there a few times and have friends there.
    the problems that arise are:
    the indonesian military (in particular the generals) whilst living in ET stole alot of land to build coffee plantations. (this is why the military didnt want to leave by the way).
    and since they have gone, there are…[Read more]

  • i agree with yorker on this one,
    i bought there 2 years ago and have seen substantial growth. getting the rents put up however has been a battle.
    originally when i was looking up there (i used to live there so it helped). finding information was the hardest thing. steve once said that the stats didnt justify buying there, however overall stats…[Read more]

  • i put a unit up for sale june last year, but didnt get any offers after 3 months.
    it was giving a 8% yeild too!
    i ended up keeping it, got bodycorp to approve lock up garages which go in once we get council approval.
