I am frequently asked by people to teach them about property. While it is a passion of mine and many of my friends and colleagues it is impossible to teach you every thing there is to know in one hour. My mistakes have been made of many years!
Here is a very low cost opportunity for you to learn and ensure you are up to date with all of the 2010 budget changes which will affect property in NZ.
