In property investment, to be informed means to be in front.
Having the edge makes all the difference. QV Insider (www.qvinsider.co.nz) has just been launched and this is an invaluable tool for the serious investor.
The benefit of QV Insider is that it is a site dedicated to helping you plan, manage and make the most of your property portfolio. Now, you’ll always be up to date on your rents and house sales. When an area appreciates, you’ll have the edge.
Members of the New Zealand Property Investors Federation will receive 12 months membership for the price of 6 months ($330 incl. GST). That's six months free.
“We saw unfulfilled demand in the property investor community to access reliable data for a more analytical, financial approach to property, particularly now viable rental yields are difficult to find.” says QV spokesperson Julian Grainger. “The property market is getting harder but QV Insider will highlight where the opportunities still exist”.
QV Insider provides rental statistics derived from the bonds lodged at the Department of Building and Housing as well as sales medians for QV’s own database collected from councils around New Zealand. They combine these statistics to derive gross rental yields. This helps you drill into areas, or individual properties and validate information you have received on what type of rent to expect and what price to pay.
You can then add your own relevant information to properties to calculate the data that will become the basis of your investment decisions. You can also load your existing portfolio and receive estimated market values; probable capital gain since purchase and compare rents to the area median.
You can now use QV Insider to investigate suburbs that match your target criteria for yield, rent and sales values. Create a watch list of properties and compare returns to find the best investments.
The service is supported by tailored investor services from QV Valuations. In two clicks you can send multiple quote requests for specialist investor services like chattel/depreciation schedules and rental assessments to over 20 locations around New Zealand. This is a quick, convenient and unique offer from a Valuation service whose skills and experience is accepted by the majority of lenders, insurance companies and accountants.
