Why borrow? Why do people borrow money? When we know, it is cheaper to save and pay for an item, whether it is a house, car, boat or household item.

We would have a whole new economy and the risk of setting up a business, wouldn’t have business owners having to risk their homes, if the business wasn’t successful. People would buy what they could afford to pay for when they had the cash, there would be no hire purchase. Things would be so different.

5.19

Well would that be a dream world to live in? Banks, Building Societies and Finance Companies have been around for a fair few years now and lend money to those that want to borrow to purchase houses, businesses, cars, boats and virtually anything. These financial institutions are different and have varying interest rates and risk appetites. I’m probably lucky that these financial John Moore institutions are here as I wouldn’t have a position as a Registered Financial Adviser if it wasn’t for these institutions, as it is What would happen with banks, my job to place the right borrower with building societies or finance companies. Simple; if they were around, they’d charge the right lender and the lender pay me for doing this on their behalf. See why I’m to look after your money. We’d have to lucky, people borrow to buy these items. presume, as they wouldn’t be able to It is a different world out there and pay interest on the money you invest as changing all the time and financial they wouldn’t be able to lend it out and institutions change as well, staff change make a margin on it. It would be a zeroand these people have different attitudes rate interest rate environment “similar to to different people and why they Japan” and you’d pay a holding fee for them to look after your money. You’d then borrowed in the first place. This can cause

some people stress and they wish they were with another lender, again this is for me to place them correctly in the first place. With this all-in mind, let’s come back to the question of how much interest you’ve paid over the years to your bank, building society or finance company? Do you know if you were getting the best rate and package available, if you can’t answer yes; give me a call and I can see what I can do for you. Again, ask yourself, why borrow at all? It has been said it’s always cheaper to use someone else’s money than yours.

Wow; what a world we’d live in, different yes.

Just sit down and think, what you as an individual has paid in interest to a bank, building society or finance company over the last few years. This may make you take a second think when you go to borrow next time, although it probably won’t as borrowing is now ingrained in our physics. Imagine if you couldn’t borrow money and you had to pay cash for everything you purchased, what impact would it make on the economy, especially house prices? This could be the cure for the Auckland housing market “or dear I say it, the Reserve Bank has virtually done that anyway across the country”.

ask, why have someone to look after your money, when you could do it yourself at no charge.

INDUSTRY COMMENT

7

Rural update The holiday season has been and gone as well as the madness that goes with it. Most farmers are frantically harvesting crops and making silage on the back of the exceptional growing season we have had. The Bayley’s Rural Team locally has seen some exceptional sales across all classes of land during the spring of 2016 and into the summer of 2017 with Mid Canterbury coming through the downturn seemingly unscathed in regards to land values. With all farm transactions selling at very good levels and some even exceeding our expectations! However buyers continue to be very careful doing their due diligence, perhaps more vigorously than usual to make sure the farming business is one that will be viable and profitable. More specifically we are seeing potential purchasers looking very closely into water allocations and costs associated, as well as the nutrient allocations on the farm and whether that property suits their business model. These seem to have become the two biggest factors when doing a due diligence investigation on a property and from what we have seen have been the biggest points of value differentiation for land. Demand for land with cheap and reliable water from either one of the local schemes or sound ground water consent continues to be the most highly

George Morris sought after. We also continue to field a lot of enquiry on good cropping land (heavy soils) both dry land and irrigated and there have been some very hotly contested sales which has in turn left a lot of unsatisfied buyers in the market. The lifestyle market remains strong with people wanting to move out of town and onto their lifestyle dream. We are finding that the highest demand for lifestyle properties are the blocks are within the $450k to $650k range and some have sold within days of reaching the market. All in all Mid Canterbury remains a strong and robust market and still highly desirable in the eyes of a potential property buyer.

GARDENING

Cottage love

Henri Ham

Awapuni Nurseries If you’re a fan of the cottage garden style of gardening, you can’t look past love in a mist. It has been commonly grown in cottage gardens for over 100 years and is perfect for creating the informal and charming style that makes this look so popular. Use it to fill in gaps or to create mass beddings of pretty, and delightful blue flowers. Team it up with other complementary flowers like hollyhock, Canterbury bells, cosmos and sweet william or try growing our cottage garden mix which also includes plants like those I’ve just listed. You can order love in a mist (technically known as nigella) from our online store at www.awapuni.co.nz or pick up a bundle or two of plants next time you’re at one of our local stockists. Next you need to find a sunny and dry spot (preferably with free-draining soil) to plant. If you have roses, you could grow some love in a mist amongst these. They both like the same conditions so grow well next to each other. Dig a small hole and plant each seedling around 15cm apart from the next. The trick is to plant each seedling far enough away to allow room to grow without the plants being too spread apart so you end up with gaps. Each seedling will grow to around 40cm high and start flowering around six weeks after planted. To extend the flowering season, I suggest dead-heading (taking off any dead flower heads) and planting another round of seedlings a few weeks later. Or let the flowers go to seed (the seed heads are also very attractive) and they’ll regrow next season.
