New Zealand Property Investors' Federation
The NZPIF is the umbrella body for 17 local Property Investors' Associations throughout New Zealand.
The 2016 ANZ Residential Property Survey results show the impact of the LVR restrictions on investors’ ability to purchase more property or change their investment strategies. Nearly a third of investors (31%) across the country said that the high LVR restrictions have significantly impacted their strategy over the past year. That’s quite a step up from the previous survey when just 16% reported an impact on their strategy. Furthermore, nearly half of those investors (14%) said they hadn’t bought a property that they otherwise would have bought if the restrictions weren’t in place.
