There are over 28,000 email addresses on the database to receive my two main weekly publications – Tony’s View and Tview Premium. Each month I conduct five specifically focussed surveys inviting all or an industry-specific subset of these recipients to gain real-time insight into what is happening in the New Zealand economy.
These coalface surveys of;
Give us immediate insights into what is happening in some instances 2-3 months before other data sources reveal market changes. In particular, the surveys allow us to pinpoint shifts in the residential real estate market well ahead of other analysts.
For four of the surveys results are posted on the sponsor’s website and the Spending Plans Survey has a PDF available in the Spending Plans Survey below.
Each month we invite the over 15,000 licensed real estate agents in New Zealand to give their coalface insights in areas such as auction attendance, demand from investors and first home buyers, key factors concerning buyers and motivating investors. We have the only measures in New Zealand of both FOMO – fear of missing out – and FOOP – fear of over-paying. We can spot explicitly market shifts from favouring buyers to favouring sellers and can break down all results for all bar the smallest regions around the country.
The survey is sponsored by REINZ and is available from this landing page.
Each month we invite all readers of my weekly publications to give their thoughts regarding management of their wealth portfolios. We ask which assets they are considering buying and which they are considering selling. We seek insight into demand for varying types of commercial property, how share purchases are undertaken, whether conservative or aggressive managed funds are preferred and so on.
From the survey we can gain insight into shifts in demand for assets such as cryptos, businesses, residential property, and especially shares. For shares we also gain insight into sectoral preferences.
The survey is sponsored by Sharesies and latest results are available here.
Each month we survey residential property investors on my emailing list and those who are clients of Crockers Property Management. We gain insight into property purchase and sale intentions, rent change desires, the ease with which good tenants can be found, intentions of buying new versus existing dwellings, mortgage repayment plans, and the type of dwelling preferred.
The results are available from this Crockers Property Management landing page.
Each month we invite mortgage advisers identified from the list of my email subscribers to give their thoughts on advisory demand from investors and first home buyers, and mortgage term preferences of buyers. We provide the only monthly guide towards changes in bank lending policies based upon the comments which advisers make regarding changes in bank attitudes towards lending to clients.
The survey has proved very useful in identifying early on the shifts on the residential real estate market attributable to lending rule changes.
Results are available from this landing page.
Each month I invite all subscribers to my weekly publications to give their thoughts regarding whether they will spend more or less over the next 3-6 months. This gives us immediate knowledge of shifts in household demand which are very useful as a tool for measuring the impact of monetary policy changes in particular.
We ask about buying intentions across a variety of consumer goods and services as well as property and shares. The answers allow us to provide retailers with some guidance at the national and regional level as to where consumer demand is heading.
