Electrician installing outdoor connections on multifamily house-859-229-641-564Auckland’s Milan Dell doesn’t advertise his electrical contracting business like most. He doesn’t need to thanks to the reputation and word of mouth he has built up over the last 15 years, and the great work his father did before that. And, for 25 years now, the Dells have used Alliott NZ to look after their business and personal tax affairs. Between their business and Greg Millar, they have a very streamlined set up in place.

Investing your money - Property & those Auckland house prices

Written by David Burt - Investment Specialist on March 20th, 2015.      0 comments

The facts are reasonably clear, but the causes behind the relentless rise of Auckland's house prices are less so.
 

Don't believe everything you read in the papers

If the media are to be believed, it is lack of supply that is driving prices up.  But this masks the real issue, and rather cleverly because there is some truth in the “we’re building too few houses” theory.
 
What drives up the price of anything in any market is: more money chasing each unit of the target (good, service, whatever).  Merely building fewer houses than an increasing population wants will not, in and of itself, drive up prices a single dollar.  It is the number of dollars chasing houses that is the key.
