Investing in residential property in New Zealand can be a big winner. There’s less to worry about than you might believe especially when you focus on the right requirements to firstly get the property and then how to manage it so it’s adding value i.e. equity and cashflow as a rental property.
In this article: 7 reasons for investing in real estate some basic pros for investing in property are presented including it’s flexibility as an investment asset. There is no specific lump sum required for getting started in property and there are many property types available from units, apartments, townhouses to large standalone homes. The deposit and lending requirements differ per property.
Specialist knowledge about property investment is also not required so that too is a positive reason to get into it, however the more knowledgeable you are, the easier it is. Errors can be avoided and challenging situations mitigated. In PropertyTalk forums there are discussions on how it can go wrong so it’s not without it’s risks. Like any investment risks can be minimised especially when using expertise to help you.
What’s not mentioned in ‘7 reasons’ article is the ease of managing your investment property when you use a property management firm especially one that’s been around a while and has great reviews like Pedersens Property Management. Taking on the management of your investment property yourself requires in-depth knowledge of the legislation like the Residential Tenancy Act and the it’s Amendment Act. Plus there are inspections to do and general upkeep of your property to manage too so it’s a no brainer to outsource it all to an expert provider.
In New Zealand most regions have more than just a few property management firms to choose from. There’s more demand than ever before for rental properties particularly in the main centres like Wellington and Auckland. Renters are staying in their rentals a lot longer too so there’s no reason not to be confident investing in a property.
