Rentals still top priority for investors
Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:39a.m.
Rental property has come out on top again as the most popular form of investment, and retirement villages are proving to be a stand out investment on the stockmarket.
The share market may have risen 24 percent last year, but the latest survey of investors shows rental property is back on top as the most preferred form of investment.
There has also been an interesting survey on the impact of overseas buyers on the property market.
3 News business editor Michael Wilson takes a look at the latest findings – watch the video.

Don't know why it is so popular. Commercial property has a healthier return usually and investors can no longer claim depreciation unless the property in question is older than 50 years. Good if you invest in Dunedin, but miserable elsewhere. One day there's going to be a short sharp shock in this area because it is still retaining its reputation as a good investment, despite the opposite being true. It's pretty positively geared at the moment, ie, easy to get a better percentage return than the percentage you're paying on any mortgage, however that will change shortly and rental properties will quickly become not so viable an investment for the majority of mum and dad investors.

Take the volitility of the shares, sure it was up 24% last year, but it also had major downs just before that. How much of the 24% up was added listings like the Fonterra float?If take property in the last 25+ years and compare, it has probably risen more than the sharemarket, and it has fallen less, ie been less volitile. Most of the rise isn't in value, but speculation, or added listings, even just inflation.How about reporting that?
