Hmmm ……those Aussies

October 8th, 2010

More than just a bit biased sometimes!

An article appeared online 5th Oct 2010 entitled “Now’s the time to inspect Kiwi properties” written by Anneli Knight, which has subsequently been syndicated this side of the Tasman by stuff.co.nz.

Amongst other items, they quote Mary O’Brien, a Sydney based [originally from NZ] mortgage broker from New Zealand Mortgage Solutions who apparently assists clients [am suspecting Australian based ones here?]  to secure mortgages with New Zealand banks as saying;

As well as Queenstown, O’Brien says areas of New Zealand that have been popular with Australian buyers this year have been Nelson and Marlborough (both in the top part of the South Island with vineyards and coastal attractions) and Tauranga, in the North Island’s Bay of Plenty area.

The article published by stuff.co.nz was just about quoted in whole, except for the reference sites mentioned at the bottom of the Australian based article.

These are headlined in bold as Useful web resources.

How, in October 2010 can they quote www.reinz.co.nz as a useful source of property for sale?

They go on to mention www.trademe.co.nz but fail to mention NZ’s biggest realestate only site www.realestate.co.nz.

Yes I know its a business these days, directing of browsers to your own web site but try to be at least a bit objective folks.

FOOTNOTE

To their credit they did publish my above comment though this morning.
