Calculate your investment


The main advantage of investing in property is leverage, which is the ability to make returns on someone elses' money (usually the banks). In some cases you may borrow 100% of the purchase price, but also keep 100% of the gains. 



Banks in New Zealand have long supported residential investment. Unlike most other forms of investment, banks are prepared to fund the purchase of property up to 100% of its value depending on the investor and their overall position.


Multiple income streams

Property provides both cashflow (rental income) and asset appreciation (capital growth). Both of these incomes are typically inflation adjusted, making residential investment property an excellent source of retirement income, since you are not eroding your asset each year with withdrawals.


Stable & predictable

As a long-term investment (7 to 10+ years), property has very consistent and predictable returns. Statistics from the Real Estate Institute of NZ show that property has historically returned, on average, around 6% capital growth per annum. 



Property is a tangible asset and offers direct ownership, meaning the investor is the registered proprietor (owner) of the asset. This gives you a greater level of control, and significantly reduces the threat of theft or fraud.
