About this event


So you purchased your home. Congratulations! And now what's the plan...?

Median house prices across New Zealand increased by 16.4% in August to $675,000*, up from $580,000 in August 2019. According to the latest data from the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ), every region in the country saw an annual increase in median house prices.

Buying houses is a long-standing New Zealand favourite investment option. Whether it is for you to live in or as an investment, the process is simple; you save your hard-earned money to use for your deposit, and borrow the balance from the bank, which you endeavour to pay over 30 years.

The ASB Chief Economist cited that mortgage rates could drop below 2 per cent within the next year, as the world reacts to the fallout from Covid-19.

Although the official cash rate is on hold at 0.25 per cent until March 2021, it is increasingly expected that it could fall into negative territory by April.

Whilst on the surface this is good news, it doesn't necessarily mean that most people will be able to pay off their mortgages any quicker .

A loan of $250,000 over 30 years at a rate of 3.5% incurs a total repayment of $404,140that’s nearly twice what was borrowed!

Think a interest rate reduction will help?

The same $250,000 over 30 years – this time with a 0.5% discounted rate - still incurs a total amount paid of $379,443 – which equates to a saving of only $24,697 over 30 years.

That is the equivalent to about 4 flat whites a week (i.e. $4 x 4 per week x 52 weeks x 30 years = $24,960). And they’re only SMALL flat whites!!
