While capital growth for properties is historically cyclical in New Zealand, showing alternating stable and gain periods, New Zealand has not experienced the bubble-bursting highs and lows of parts of Europe and the USA. It provides a more predictable safe-haven for a medium to long term investment.
Investment properties show reasonable returns and generally steady capital gain over time. As in all markets there can be a trade-off between rental yields and capital gain. Some high capital gain properties may show lower yields , but returns can still be structured to show cashflow flat or positive returns depending on the level of initial capital input.
