Re: Out of the frying pan???

That's shocking, I'd have thought it would come first in the mispronunciation of vowels.

As for that swim? about 30 years or so.

Re: Damp homes- there are solutions!

The best solution to a damp house is not to buy one in the first place!

For heavens sakes do yourselves a favour - buy a piece of land and have a house built to code.

Re: Well - How much then?

I was being realistic love, we used to think the same way as you too - the rule of thumb we used was "double it and add a bit" which is similar to the ratio you quoted. Still wasn't enough though.

Re: Well - How much then?

This isn't meant as a criticism at all but how would you fare if you had four kids to bring up on a reduced salary? My point being that it's mostly the families who find it hard to make ends meet. ...

Re: Hamilton

The few times I went there I thought it was quite pleasant. It's becoming a bit of a suburb of Auckland, even though it's quite a distance away.

Re: Well - How much then?

This question often crops up and is a very valid one. The problem with NZ is that property prices are way out of proportion to incomes.

Re: NZ Shack for sale

I disagree with that, if that was the case the value of a property would stay the same after the land has been built on which is never the case.
