Auckland is New Zealand's economic powerhouse, contributing 38% of the nation's GDP and with this booming economy Auckland provides multiple opportunities to grow and develop investments across a range of sectors including real estate.

The city is home to the vast bulk of multi-national and national head offices in New Zealand with almost 40 per cent of residents were born outside of New Zealand. Recent years have seen enviable growth in population due to significant increase in net migration as the rest of the world and returning Kiwis have come to appreciate what Auckland has to offer and have made the city their home.

About Auckland

To support the significant growth and population increase, Auckland Council and the Government have undertaken several infrastructural projects such as City Rail Link, Light Rail Project (ATAP) between City Centre and the Airport.

The job opportunities created as a result of such growth expansion and unemployment at 4.5 per cent, one of the lowest levels in the past decade there is a significant pressure on housing solution. Unfortunately, due to poor housing planning by the Council, Auckland has seen a property boom that is driven by high immigration, a severe lack of supply and record low interest rates. Developments simply can’t be built quick enough, which makes for an exciting time in the region's growth and expansion towards a modern city.

High entry barriers to home ownership has retained a strong and consistent demand in rental properties across Auckland specially with properties located in growth areas and close to transport hubs attracting premium rents.

With median Auckland house price soaring about $405K between 2007 and 2016 high yields are hard to come by although the huge demand and lack of properties has resulted in great capital gains and your odds of an extended vacancy period are minimal. Good returns can still be had, particularly with investors willing to be creative, while buy and hold is a viable strategy as the city adapts to the stunning population, infrastructural and economic growth.

"We had a GREAT experience working with iFindProperty. Having [iFindProperty] gave us the confidence to purchase our first IP and we think working with him in particular made the whole experience enjoyable, non-stressful, and calm. Buying an IP is a big commitment and although we already knew what we were after, we would not have had the confidence on our own. We are SO THANKFUL we had [iFindProperty] helping us and we 100% recommend getting in touch with iFindProperty to see how they can help you start your property investing journey"

"I decided to enlist the services of a property finder after becoming frustrated with Real Estate agents, who seemed more interested in promoting whatever they had on their books, rather than listening to my personal investing goals. iFindProperty gave some very sound personalised property advice and explained the purchase process very thoroughly. I had some reservations initially about not purchasing the property in the 'traditional' way, but once the process got under way it all went very smoothly. Even taking the finder's fee into account, I purchased an Auckland apartment below it's market valuation, and with the help of iFindProperty am planning to do a renovation and get some new tenants in at a higher rent, all from my base in Hong Kong. I have no hesitation in recommending iFindProperty and will definitely enlist their services again in the future."
