How come you post negative stuff on shares etc when property investors like this guy get yields of 4%... 1.3m property renting for 1100 a week... my rule when I started in the early 2000s was to roughly double the peice in rent. You'd want about 2600 a week rent on that.

Hmmm

There are so many Auckland investors in similar positions but most are not as extreme as this situation. This is a perfect example of how overcooked the market is and why a correction is inevitable.

Buying apartments.

While I do not recommend buying apartments, and my first investment was a shoe-box apartment on Queen Street Auckland in 2005 (pictured).

I was very lucky to sell this apartment 12 months later for the same price to my tenant, while the apartment market was dropping prior to the GFC. Have I held it longer when GFC hit, I would have lost a lot of money!

Here are few things to watch out for when buying an apartment:

1) make sure the apartment is at least 50m2 to get bank lending

2) avoid apartment blocks that has any structural issues such as leaks.

3) read at least 2 years of body corp minutes with a magnifying glass and go through with a fine tooth comb

4) avoid apartment blocks that are predominately investor owned. Investors will more likely fire sell in sign of trouble during recessions, and drive prices down. More owner occupier the better!

5) avoid apartment blocks where there are too many substandard tenants. Good luck attracting desirable tenants...

6) personally I would check ownership of all apartment units in the block. Avoid any blocks that have HNZ ownership.

7) make sure the body corp has allowed for a robust long term maintenance plan

8 ) make sure you calculate your rental return by net yield and not gross yield. Body corp fee can significantly reduce your net yield!

9) make sure the view the apartment unit is getting is not going to be blocked by the next new build right in front of it, which will reduce the price significantly in the future

10) talk to a few owners and tenants living in the apartment block to get a feel of the points above

11) talk to the building manager and find out as much about the apartment block and who is living there as much as possible

12) stay well clear away from leasehold apartments. Lack of capital gain and horrendous ground rent will set you back years to come!

13) make sure body corp rules and building insurance policy specifically allows AirBnb short term accommodation. You do not want your short term tenants to trigger fire alarms or burn the building down, and you are not covered by insurance!

What would you like to add to the list?

Gary Lin The apartment building you bought in is low-end hence your issues. However if you’d kept it you’d definitely have made money on it. Your advice is subjective as it all depends on your investment goals. Eg. I know people who’ve done very well with leasehold, and I hold a few apartments under 50sm that have performed well. People shouldn’t be put off buying apartments as the market is growing due to lack of land. They’re also low maintenance, cheaper to buy and generally have higher yields than houses, and they can have the same percentage of cap gains as houses if you buy well.

Apartment land leases?

Get your self equipped otherwise stay away from apartment 😂

Great advice....thanks Gary

Catherine Southwick good tips for you 👍

Gary Lin A greedy prat who received parental money to begin his path of buying New Zealanders potential homes for his own mercenary self. You're a part of the housing problem you soulless asshole 😡

Buildings with the fancy amenities like swimming pools, spas & tennis courts are nice, but these facilities aren’t free. Body corporate fees are often significantly higher in these buildings.One bedroom apartments generally attract young professionals, two bedroom apartments generally attract flat mates. Young professionals usually mean less drama & better ROI%.Small apartments = students, larger apartments = lower percentage ROI. You need to find a balance, as students are less likely to be long term tenants (more than 1 year), and then you have the costs of finding new tenants + a vacant apartment while searching.

Useful tips 👏

I would say that 2years of body corporate records is not enough... Dig back as far as you can go.

This is awesome! Thank you!

Do u see an over supply of apartments in the near future?

Out of interest what is that same apartment worth today?

Allan He

Well said Gary Lin

Stating the obvious: better buy one with a car park if you can! HahaBuying apartments is a different game, a lot more research required but maybe well worth it, yield could be much higher than the average unit/house ...

look for a do up, apartment do ups can be cost effective and look at furnished rentals can work good

Look for air bnb reviews for the building / neighborhood.

Very good advice Gary Lin.

Congrats Max on your first property investment purchase!

15% under value and 6.5%+ gross yield in Hamilton!

Max is based in Auckland, and was new to property investing.

He didn't have a clear investment strategy.

He didn't know where and what to buy.

He also had a limited budget of $300k, which was unlikely for him to buy in Auckland.

Two months ago Max enrolled in my Property Investment Blueprint course (www.GaryLin.co/Blueprint).

Fast forward two months, Max was able to implement the strategies in the course step by step.

Max narrowed down his focus, found his target market, and found the right suburbs in Hamilton to hunt for the right deal.

The more he followed the course, and did the work, the more confident he became.

Soon Max became an area expert of the areas he was searching properties.

He is now able to secure his first investment property in Hamilton, 15% below value, and positive cash flow at 6.5%+ return!

PS: Funniest thing is this is the first time I met Max in person. Before I checked out his purchase I didn't even know what Max looked like!

If you would like to be Max, enrol in the Property Investment Blueprint course today:

To me when im inspecting a place I think if they skimp of this shall stuff what else have they been cheap or lack or maintenance with. After I submit my offer and in the attorney review period I send a list of repairs and maintenance needed and have the price revised. I find that emotionally the seller doesn’t want to have to start the process again and 9/10 times I get a good discount because of things like s crappy letter box and on from there. Great tip!

You must be so bored today lol

So when my property manager/agent gives me a figure I simple say you can add another $10-10000 dollars to that mate cos I’m heading to bunnings to get a stainless Letter box 😂😂

Charging $520 a year for a new letterbox is one of the reasons we need stronger tax laws and regulation against predatory landlords and investors.

The consequences of a proposed CGT, ring fencing of losses, healthy home bill x 2, remove depreciation of building etc.

All these steps to incrementally make residential property investing harder, are driving away novice mum and dad investors.

The consequences?

Less landlords

Less rental properties

Less new developments specifically built for renters

Higher rents due to simple supply and demand.

Experienced investors like myself, who can see the effects from a mile away, enjoying less completion when buying more rentals.

Rental yields and income are getting better and better the more attacks from government on landlords.

Long term property investment is still king.

Try borrow money to invest in shares and stock market without property as collateral, banks will laugh you out the door.

Kiwi saver?

Already taxed from 28% up to 33% each year!

Destroying the compounding returns by 40% of sometimes more depending on circumstances over 20-30 years. If adding another CGT at the end would kill kiwisaver.

Latest Labour slogan: We’ve what it TAX to TAX what you’ve got.

The proposed CGT is aimed at property investors and most of the other noise will be diluted or removed (only for now if this lot are returned to power) it is driven by ideology that resents the private sector having a bigger foothold in providing accommodation than the State, They want to change that and this is step 1. I once worked in a role supplying materials to HNZ and the abuse of tax payer dollars was unbelievable, the State will never be able to do it - take a look at the Kiwi Build mess - which this govt knowingly lied about to get in power. Vote them out or watch them screw it up for future generations - cashed up wiser heads will swoop at that time - “the markets are simply are transferral ground of wealth from the impatient to the patient”

Now increased rates? Smh.

They should just fix the chargable rent price if they want to go down the regulation bonanza ha

Rents go up and interest rates drop, that’s a pretty good pay rise in my eyes 👍🏻

I am just going to rent a room at my friends place and use it as my office.

Can you please explain claim home office and pay CGT in which way related?

It’s such a small proportional cost it should not make a difference.

That is a no brainier.The typical self employed that claims home office expense would claim 10% or less of their total home expenses so the benefit of doing so would be gone if CGT kicked in as a result.

Haha rhetorical question?

I’d imagine that most would use it as an office to claim expenses and then a year or two prior to selling change to not claiming expenses.As I’m sure that there would be so many loop holes to utilize to negate large sections of the tax if it were ever implemented.As having an exception to not include the family home, cars, boats, jewelry or artwork, it likely opens up a raft of ways to minimize tax for savvy investors/accountants.

You are only screwed if you vote these ill equipped ideologues back in.

Don’t be sucked in, this does nothing for housing affordability, vote them out, the wheels are falling off and they haven’t the ability to see us through, have you listened to The PM speak - no substance, waiting on a working group to give feedback on every issue - she’s winging it.

Don’t be so dramatic, there are ways around this, sit back and watch.

Any kid who works hard and smart, start their career at McDonalds with no experience at age 15.

By age 21, you can potentially become a store manager earning $80-90k. One store is even offering $140k per year. Australian store managers are even younger than NZ counter parts.

Yes - good training systems

my first job was at KFC i learned about how systems can extract productivity out of someone with little knowledge

In hindsight yes, but as a 15yr old I probably wasn't thinking about that kind of stuff.

No. But they do have a good training model. A perfect business if you were to judge it's merits purely on systems and processes.

Think bigger. One of the only businesses on the planet that if you pass their franchise vetting the banks are 99.99% going to throw money at you and they are known for offering franchises to employees before investors. Owning a business that can be run by 15 year olds and you only need to visit once a year to make sure the building hasn’t burned down, doesn’t get much better than that

I started at McDonalds when I was 15 and worked through the rest of my high school years, that job paid for me to get to university and I learned a lot of great things in the process!

No gang area
No commercial industrial properties next door

No Housing New Zealand clustered in the immediate streets
No steep slopes or cliff tops
No apartment
No body corp/unit title
No meth lab

Buy in high ownership area
Street appeal
Quiet street

Look at what your potential neighbours are throwing out at rubbish collection especially the recycling bin, ie overflowing alcohol bottles is bad sign

Alex came to me and wanted to invest in Hamilton 2 months ago.

From knowing almost nothing about property, Alex went from strength to strength.

Within about 1 month after completing my Property Blueprint course, Alex found a deal that is 6% return. Best of all the dual income property has already got services separate, plus the council development contribution was already paid by the seller!

Alex only need to spend $4000 to complete the subdivision!

After subdivision is complete, each of the two separate properties will be worth $430k to $450k each, giving Alex a combine value and equity gain of over $200,000!

If you want to be like Alex, have confidence, knowledge and skills in your property investment journey, I provide a range of group coaching, online course, and one on one coaching.

The Australian housing market is getting worse and worse.
Australian government will feel the pressure to:
1) lower interest rates by cutting OCR
2) relax interest only loan periods to give negative cashflow borrowers more breathing space
3) ease lending to revive the market
4) accelerate immigration to boost demand for housing
5) entice foreign buyers back somehow to boost demand for housing, especially new apartment market that have been worst hit

Will be interesting to see the reaction in New Zealand market, which has been relatively not as badly affected by the credit crunch by the banks.
