Over Down Under' Reader Survey #2
Follow the sun, and winter
over, down under. Transform the depths of a cold dark
northern winter into the lightness and warmth of summer in one
of the most beautiful countries in the world.
About the concept I'm asking
your opinion on
People who live in the Northern Hemisphere (primarily Americans
plus some Canadians and British people too) would spend probably
some months of each year, during the northern hemisphere winter,
living in New Zealand, where the seasons are reversed and the
weather is much better.
You could buy perhaps a
condo in a block of condos, or maybe a free standing house to be
their winter home in New Zealand.
There would be a development
with a number of these residences located in the one area.
The development would provide property management services for
owners while they were away, and would optionally make the
residences available for short term rental (nightly or weekly)
to tourists during these times.
A two bedroom condo would
cost between US$200,000 and US$250,000; one bedroom condos would
of course be cheaper, and larger condos would cost more. A
free standing house will probably cost $50,000 and up above the
cost of a condo.
