Capital Adequacy & The Implications For The Property Market
Hear What Other Expats Have To Say
Jayne and Brett, London
We were thinking that it would be a good idea to purchase another property before we permanently move back to NZ in a couple of years’ times. It didn’t seem to be achievable as we live overseas and couldn’t spend a decent amount of time in NZ in order to search and secure a property.
Erskine + Owen did all the relevant research about potential areas that we could afford to buy in and then presented property to our specifications. They also managed the whole purchase process and proceeded with the purchase.
Although we were investors, I think the concept would work really well for people who have lived overseas for a while and are planning to move back to NZ to live. This way, they will have a home waiting for them when they arrive.
Ben, Melbourne Australia
I was referred to you as I wanted to invest in property in New Zealand but I didn’t have any idea where to start and being based in Melbourne it was a logistical challenge.
Starting with your Plan session showed me what could be achieved and gave me the confidence to take the next step. As I said, I really had no idea when I first started out, but you made it very clear what was happening, and what needed to happen along the way.
I’d highly recommend anyone who is remote (overseas), even if they know about the property market. Erskine + Owen knows the market and they have a team on the ground that acts as your eyes and ears.
Matt & Leah, Sydney
When we came to see you, neither Matt or I had experience in buying investment property. Erskine + Owen helped us put together a theoretical property investment plan. It gave us confidence that we could afford to buy at a time when we were moving to a single income.
We also used Erskine + Owen’s sourcing services to find and purchase our first investment property. Being guided through the property purchase process taught us a huge amount and gave us the confidence to go on to purchase our first home only a couple of months later.
Joshua and Adrienne, New York
I had been thinking about purchasing a property for a while but living away from New Zealand made this a daunting task.
During the purchasing process, I felt as though you were not just “walking the talk” but had passion for what you were doing – it was not just a job but a vocation! Despite being offshore, I felt I was kept fully informed along the way by the Erskine + Owen team, even when I was moving cities and was harder to contact.
I would not have been able to find such a great investment property without your help and would highly recommend anyone overseas looking to invest in NZ property to use your services.
Lucy and Craig, Sydney
My brother Craig and I were looking to purchase our first investment property but had the difficulties of Craig living overseas and my travelling on a regular basis. Finding time to commit to searching and looking at properties would have been extremely difficult.
Erskine + Owen made it easy by firstly preparing a searching profile. You then found us a property that met our criteria, and this all happened within our timeframe.
It was a relief to have someone experienced who could answer our many questions and guide us through the acquisition of our first property. You made it so easy we can’t wait to buy our next property asap!
Thanks for your help and information through the process of buying our first property. If we hadn’t used your services, we would probably still be looking for a property to buy now! Anybody wanting to invest should use you.
