New Zealand House Prices - Half That Of The UK But Still Cause For Concern

Place In The Sun: Auckland House Prices Hit Record High Despite Talk Of Softening New Zealand Property Market

Interesting round-up of what is happening in the New Zealand housing market where things appear to be at much the same point as they are in the UK - prices rising fastest in the capital, concern regarding over-borrowing, talk of softening market, etc., - only prices seem to be half of what they are here.

As well as ridiculously overpriced houses, NZ has the highest interest rates in the OECD (7.25%) and a massive balance of payments deficit (circa 9% of GDP!!). The $NZD is also beginning to weaken which is likely to add significantly to imported inflation. The export sector has a massive job on it's hands to avoid the NZ economy going into serious recession in the next 2-5 years.

Cool, if NZ goes to pot, I'm gonna snap up huge swathes of it with my big strong pound notes. I'm then gonna live like Tony Montana in a vast mansion with my own personal militia, heli-pad, vineyards, Ferraris and uber-babes. I can't wait... :)

I can hear TickTock's teeth grinding from hear! :)

Tyrrellcorp - I'd be happy to line up the uber-babes for you, Merino or Romney?
