NZ Property attracting Overseas interest

While many New Zealanders are finding it tough to get into the property market with the huge boom in recent years, prices here are still very attractive to investors and prospective new residents.

New Zealand's "clean green" image and more relaxed way of life is proving a drawcard for many workers in the likes of Europe and the United States, keen to get out of the daily grind of the big cities.

A new site has recently been launched in the UK, aimed at helping people research the new zealand real estate market and discover what's on offer, with details of the newest property developments around the country.

Property New Zealand has buying guides for most regions, including what they describe as "Iconic NZ" type locations overlooking mountains and lakes. NZ property prices are still very reasonable when matched with the buying power of Pound or the Euro.

New Zealand has the added benefit for many overseas buyers of having no land tax, property purchase tax, wealth tax or death duties.

The new site is aimed at more than just regular property investors though, with good information for people looking to become permanent residents... with topics like Finding work in NZ, Emigration, Shipping your belongings overseas, the country's weather, and New Zealand's Government, schooling and healthcare systems.
