I have had a building inspection for house 4 today and my finace is all in place. The purchase price isn’t that much, but if the house is going to be a maintenance nightmare after you buy the property, it could cost you a lot more in the long run.

I also got a second opinion on the rental value from another agent. I am not sure if it is true but the builder remarked to the agent that the property would make a good rental.

I was thinking of writing a step-by-step guide to buying a house in New Zealand and the things I have learnt so far. I don’t have much experience as some investors, but I think I might have something to offer – and at least the guide will be free!
