New Zealand Rental Property Advice

Why is property still the number one investment for New Zealanders? We set out some reasons below.

  • Supply and demand: There is a lack of properties in comparison to the number of people, particularly in certain regions of New Zealand, such as Auckland.
  • Lack of land to build on: It’s important to understand zoning, especially if more value is added to a property through subdivision or adding second dwelling to improve cashflow.
  • Population growth: Our population is steadily growing from both natural increase and immigration. More people mean higher demand for housing.
  • Plenty of tenants: Around 34% New Zealanders rent their home, as at the first quarter of 2020.
  • Cashflow and capital growth: If the right property is purchased, it’s likely to create cashflow while also increasing in value over time.
  • Instant equity: Value will likely be added to your property after purchase, meaning that as the market value increases, you will be able to sell your house at a higher price.
  • Leverage: Using the bank’s money to fund investment by borrowing 60%-70% but keeping 100% capital growth.
  • Strategy: Considering the right strategy for you, will help you succeed in your rental property. Factors to consider include financial capacity, level of experience, risk tolerance and time availability.
