September issue – available now

The latest NZ Property Investor magazine is out now, full of all the tips and tricks to keep your investments humming in these challenging times.

Monday, September 1st 2008, 2:00AM

by The Landlord

There is another great debate being waged in the housing market at the moment. The first, as you probably remember, was the Mexican stand-off between buyers and sellers; this latest stand-off is between “boffins” (the number-crunching academics) and the buyers/investors, over the question – is now the time to buy?

Our September issue looks at just that: Is this stage of the downturn actually hiding the next big boom? We talk to some property experts and also a few investors about on their take on the current situation.

In the second article of our new series, A day in the life, we spend the day with a property valuer and learn how they come up with their numbers.

Investing 101 looks at the number-crunching business side of property investing. We look at how to budget, calculate rates of returns, identify risks and tools to use.

If you can’t sell you property – swap it! The swaps market is staging a comeback in the current climate and we look at how lucrative an option it is for investors.

Mortgagee sales are also a hot topic at the moment. They have the potential to be very good bargains for investors, but there are hidden stings to be aware of.

We also talk to property veterans Murray and Anne McDrury about their 30-year history in the property game and what they’ve learned along the way that could be valuable information for you.
