Students to earn NCEA credits through money education

This looks like a step in the right direction! 

I hope many schools adopt it into their curriculum's and run with it.

It’ll be sanitized to the extreme but it’s a start at least and if the kids can leave school knowing ANYTHING about money, they’ll be a hell of a long way ahead of me!

Very cool.

Is Property Investment in NZ During COVID-19 a Good Idea?

Original article from Mortgage Supply Company HERE

Blog Hero Image_ Property Investment Post Covid-19

Property investment in New Zealand has proven over time to be an incredibly lucrative strategy for investors, with the growth of the housing market and the increase in demand for residential property. In fact, last year the nationwide median house price soared by 12.3% to NZ$629,000, according to the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ). That's a tidy increase in value from the previous year’s rise of 1.8%.

However, since COVID-19 hit New Zealand in March this year, the property market has been an ever-evolving and changing industry, raising the question with investors: Is property investment in New Zealand During COVID-19 a good idea?

We've taken a look at the statistics and reached out to some of the country's property investment industry leaders; Phil Thompson, Co-Founder of Property Education Company Asset Lab and Nick Gentle, Operations and Co-Owner of iFindProperty, to get an...

LVR Rules & Policy Changes: How Will it Effect Kiwi Home Buyers?

Original article HERE from our partners at Mortgage Supply Company

loan-to-value-ration-restrictions-removed-nz

You may have noticed in the media a lot of noise lately around the LVR restrictions being removed completely by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand until 1st May 2021, due to the economic fallout from COVID-19. There's a good reason for the media buzz too - this change marks the end of nearly 7 years worth of LVR restrictions, and has the potential to make home-buyers lives a lot easier when it comes to taking out a bank home loan.

However, there's a lot more to the whole picture than a free-for-all of lending for the next 12 months. Just because banks can lend without restriction doesn't mean they will, and taking out a loan with a low deposit still goes hand-in-hand with a significant amount of risk if not properly planned.

We've put together this blog to hopefully clear up any frequently asks questions around the removal of LVR restrictions, and explain what it really means for Kiwi home...

Battle of the Banks: Insight into NZ's Current Interest Rate Wars: Mortgage Supply Co

Original article Here

bank-wars-interest-rates

In reaction to the speculation that the official cash rate and OCR may drop below zero in the months to come and the bid to win the business of Kiwi home buyers as the country recovers from COVID-19, we've seen the banks enter what looks like an interest rate war.

In fact, just last week ASB made the move to offer a record-breaking low two-year fixed rate of 2.69%, and Kiwi Bank responded to the forecast change by offering a one-year rate of 2.65%. These rates have literally never been seen before, even considering back in '08 after the GFC when interest rates plummeted by around 3% (from 8.6% to 5.9% fixed) the competitive and reactive environment we're witnessing now is utterly unprecedented.

So what's the reasoning behind the extremely low interest rates and New Zealand Bank wars? Well, ASB executive manager of retail banking, Craig Sims, stated;

"This has been a difficult time for a lot of our customers. While we have put in place a number of support...

How I made my first million: Investment coach says being rich is within most people's reach

ORIGINAL ARTICLE HERE

Stuff's series How I Made My First Million talks to millionaires about how they got there. This week, it's property investor and coach Steve Goodey.

How did you make your first $1m, how old were you?

Looking back it would have been in my mid-30s.

I started buying houses to keep them as rentals in my early-20s, well before I'd bought a house to live in myself. I think the first house I bought to live in myself was my fourth property purchased.

I sold that first owner-occupier home to buy the second, which I still own and I'm currently living in my third home.

In the last 20 years I think I've bought and sold, traded, or renovated about 3000 houses, some for myself but most for clients whom I've coached.

You never really wake up one day and say "Oh wow I'm a millionaire" it's more likely you do a lending application that asks you for your assets and liabilities and the number under the heading "Total Assets"  has the second comma in it for the first time.
