His extensive research has lead to some very interesting findings,which members will definitely find extremely interesting and may impact on future investing. These include:

  • Demographics
    • Can property market movements be more accurately predicted?
    • Can you get ahead of the trend?
    • If property demand drives supply, what drives demand?
    • Birth rates? Can birth rate trends over the last 70 years be a property investment predictor for now and 50 years into the future?
    • Can we use birth rate trends to predict...student rental numbers, rental demand, first home buyers, mortgage demand, interest rates, beach bach prices, granny flat demand?
  • And his formula the 1:1.74 Ratio.
    • What is the 1:1.74 ratio?
    • How does this ratio affect house prices?
    • Why is it that for every core job created demand is created for 1.74 houses?
    • Why could Palmerston North house prices lift by 60% in two years?

We also welcome Daniel Ryland a Massey University summer scholarship student, presenting his research on some key findings on: Incentives and Barriers to affordable one and two bedroom properties in the city. The focus has included exploring what are understood by property developers and investors to be the barriers and incentives to the development of such properties.
