I'm 25, married, earning just over $62,000 a year, living in Auckland. In order for my wife and I to buy a property to live in, I would need a deposit of between $50,000 to $100,000. That alone is no small feat.
We have joint investments - my wife works (for which I am eternally grateful), and I don't (well, not for much money in any case). Her PIR rate is 21 per cent and mine is 12.5 per cent. So far, so good.
