Key lynched for pointing out that there are 1000 Auckland places to buy under $500k

Don’t the Media party and opposition just get their panties in a bunch when some inconvenient facts emerge about what ever crisis they are attempting to push.

The Prime Minister says he’s found plenty of homes for sale in Auckland for less than half a million dollars.

John Key made the comment after the government unveiled a policy that could force councils to zone more land for housing, in the hope of cooling rising prices, especially in Auckland.

Mr Key says while there are people who simply can’t afford to buy, he found plenty of cheaper homes on the website Trade Me.

“There’s nearly 1000 properties that are under $500,000 and quite a lot of them are much cheaper than that, they’re in the order of $300,000 and $350,000, again – go and have a look.”

Checkpoint with John Campbell searched for houses only on Trade Me between $300,000 and $350,000 and found 141 properties.

So, that is 141 more properties that you’d have had us believe existed under your manufactured housing crisis…and they are affordable.

Checkpoint must be retards with the search function. I did a search…for houses between $300k and $550k to weed out tenders, auctions and the like. Guess how many houses…in Auckland…yep the Prime Minister was right, over 1000 homes are available for sale in the Auckland region.

Affordable housing

Realestate.co.nz has 941 houses between $300k and 500K:

Affordable

Well, it looks like Labour declaring a crisis in housing has solved the problem, like them declaring a crisis in everything else.

I suspect though that the real issue is that the luvvies want to buy homes in Ponsonby for $300k.
