Properties in Auckland

Many people agree that investing in property is one of the most proven investments for creating wealth.
New Zealand has a wide variety of properties across areas, including residential, commercial, lifestyle and rural. Through the years, we have seen different areas of New Zealand flourish, gain in value, change, and become home to investment opportunities.

Houses have the ability to double in value over a period of time, and in many cases, can be tax free. Investing in Auckland particularly, has a lot of potential, considering the huge influx of people wanting to live here, whilst the supply or the ability to produce an adequate number of houses just cannot keep up.

Despite what the media says, or a number of commentators have said about a ‘bubble going to burst’ of price rises, time and time again, we have seen that property prices continue to grow. Many people believe that there is no bubble, but a fundamental supply and demand issue, which can contribute to appreciating house prices, and hence, an investment opportunity.

Buying a property for investment is different than buying a home to live in. It becomes a matter of money, dollars and growth, not a matter of what type of home would be nice for you and your family to live in, entertain guests, come home to, and so forth. You probably would buy an investment or rental property in different suburbs you would normally live in. Examples of these can be up and coming suburbs, as opposed to ones that do not expect any growth or government investment any time soon.

Choosing to invest in residential property can have benefits that are worthy of consideration. Relatively speaking, occupancy rates of residential properties are much higher than those of commercial properties. It’s rare to see most residential properties go without a tenant for an extended amount of time. But it’s not rare to see a commercial property be “For Lease” for weeks, months, or even years.

When buying a property for investment, there are a number of things you need to take into consideration. You should, of course, seek proper advice, but for the purpose of an introduction to the matter, you may want to consider matters such as:

– Construction
– Size
– Age of property
– Location
– Local amenities
– School zones, access to medical facilities
– Investment by the government or businesses in the area (new malls, new libraries, new bus routes, motorway expansions)
– The types of potential tenants (e.g., retirees, students, middle aged couples)
– Market trends
– Affordability, yield, rent expectations

You may also wish to consider what properties suit your budget and finances. A financial advisor can typically give you more information on this.

After you have bought your property, you should also consider making your property investment a “hands-off investment”. The job is not done once you buy the property, as for years to come, you are probably going to be dealing with tenants who have a hold of a variety of issues: late rent payments to chase up, tenants who may dirty or damage the property, repairs, and so forth. There are also a number of considerations around regulation and laws in relation to tenants and tenancies.

As a result, many people choose to consider using a Property Management Service. This is where someone looks after your property and acts as a buffer between yourself and the tenants.

Some people are hesitant to consider using a property management service, as it feels as though it may devalue or reduce the profitability of their investment. However, typically, a good property manager can bring more value than the fees they are paid. In fact, using a property manager can be an investment in its own right. A property manager will be able to pool together a wider variety of tenants to choose from, screen them more comprehensively, handle repairs at a competitive cost, and help you achieve adequate rent increases every year that remain profitable, without upsetting the tenant, among other things.
