Unconditional House Offers & Home Insurance

2020.10.18 21:11 pm_me_labradoodles Unconditional House Offers & Home Insurance

Just another sucker wannabe first home buyer in Wellington here.
There is a steep learning curve on trying to buy a house. We put in a tender last week and lost by $130k+ but I hear that's a classic Wellington fhb experience.
How do you check you can insure a house before putting an unconditional offer in? Last week, I called an insurance provider to ask for a quote and that I wanted to confirm the property was able to be insured before offering unconditional as, if accepted, being able to draw down the loan funds would require proof of insurance. They advised the quote was not a guarantee of being able to insure the building, as when the time came to proceed and it went to underwriting there could still be an issue.
It seemed like any issues that might come up would be due to any previous EQC claims. They said I could proceed with the insurance quote, then they would complete the underwriting process, it would be accepted if possible, and a certificate of insurance would be issued with a future date (estimated settlement date). I wouldn't pay anything until a later date, and had 30 days after the start date of the policy to cancel with money back, so of course could cancel beforehand if I'm not successful with the offer.
Is this the usual way of checking a propery can be insured before submitting an unconditional offer?
Edit: spelling

2020.10.16 02:16 TimmyHate 0 New Community Cases - 4 New Imported Cases - 1 New Historical Case - 21 Days since last community case - 9 Days Since last Active Community Case

Please note the historical case is not part of the official numbers at this stage as it is still under investigation. Because Stuff beat the press release I was using their reporting.
Quick Highlights
Ministry of Health Press Release
There are four new cases of COVID-19 to report from managed isolation in New Zealand today. There is one suspected historical case currently being investigated, which is not included in today’s reporting numbers.
The first imported case arrived from the Philippines via Hong Kong on October 3 and was taken to a managed isolation facility in Auckland. They tested positive as part of routine day 12 testing and have been transferred to the Auckland quarantine facility.
The second imported case arrived from Peru via Mexico and the USA on October 10 and was taken to a managed isolation facility in Christchurch. They tested positive as part of routine day 3 testing.
The third and fourth imported cases both arrived from Hong Kong on October 11 and were taken to a managed isolation facility in Auckland. They tested positive as part of routine day 3 testing and have been transferred to the Auckland quarantine facility.
Our total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 1,524, which is the number we report to the World Health Organization.
Our total number of active cases is 46 – all imported cases. There are no active community cases of COVID-19. Further details about the suspected historical case under investigation are expected to be released later today.
Yesterday our laboratories processed 5,078 tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to date to 1,021,931.
Suspected historic case under investigation
Overnight we have been investigating someone who has returned a weak positive result.
This individual is a recent returnee from the United States and completed their full 14 days in a MIQ facility in September. They were asymptomatic during their time in MIQ and returned two negative tests during this time. They were released from MIQ on September 21.
After becoming unwell this week, they sought medical care. They were subsequently tested for COVID-19, which has returned a weak positive result, indicating an old infection. We have undertaken further testing today to fully confirm this is a historic infection.
A PCR test conducted today has returned a negative result. This follow-up testing result strongly suggests that this is a historical infection. We are awaiting further results from other tests including serology.
We are taking precautionary measures as we always do in these instances and the individual has been transferred to an MIQ facility in Wellington.
As we have seen with other cases, individuals can return weak positive tests if they have been infected earlier in the year. This case follows a typical pattern of what we have seen in other historical cases.
These cases can emerge after the person has a respiratory illness that is not COVID-19, such as a cold or influenza. Residual remnants of the virus can be picked up through swabbing, with inflammation often bringing forward virus particles that were not previously picked up.
Further information will be shared when it is available, which we expect to be later today.
On a personal note I will try and do these over the weekend but will depend on family obligations. If not hope everyone has a safe election day, and go the AB's.

Our trail of tears: the story of Ihumātao

Vincent O'Malley Guest writer
The current standoff at Ihumātao has deep roots in the legacy of colonialism and land confiscation. Historian Vincent O’Malley writes about how it was taken by the Crown, and why that matters today.
The New Zealand Wars may have ended nearly 150 years ago. But their consequences continue to be felt today. Nowhere is that clearer at the moment than at Ihumātao. To understand what is taking place, we need to step back to the time of the Waikato War.
In July 1863 the Crown launched a premediated war of conquest and invasion directed against Kīngitanga (Māori King movement) supporters in Waikato and those of their kin who lived further north, around the shores of Manukau Harbour, at Ihumātao, Māngere and elsewhere.
These were the same Māori communities who had been feeding and protecting the settlers of Auckland for more than two decades. Earlier, during the Northern War of 1845-46, they had pledged to defend the township from possible attack. But now they stood accused by the Crown of plotting to massacre these very same Pākehā. It was a desperate lie, attempting to justify the unjustifiable – the Crown levying war upon its own subjects.
Those allegations were not only entirely unfounded but also illogical. Destroying the key outlet for their produce would have been suicidal for the Māori communities concerned. Their wealth and power depended, to a large degree, on Auckland’s ongoing wellbeing. It was a mutually beneficial relationship – at least until Governor George Grey decided that the Kīngitanga had to be destroyed, paving the way for the invasion of its Waikato heartland in July 1863.
In the days leading up to the planned attack, Māori communities at Ihumātao and elsewhere in South Auckland were driven from their land and forced to retreat beyond the Waikato River. An ultimatum dated 9 July 1863 was delivered to the people of Ihumātao and other settlements requiring them to take an oath of allegiance to Queen Victoria or immediately retire to the Waikato.
Some of those who received this notice understood it as an order to leave. Others feared that if they took the oath they would be forced to fight for the Crown against their own relatives. Only a handful of people agreed to pledge allegiance, some of them visitors from the north. When the ultimatum was delivered to Ihumātao on 10 July, the response was clear: they would join their kin in the Waikato.
They left with only what they could carry. Everything else was seized from them. The lands were subsequently confiscated, houses and property looted or destroyed, and horses and cattle seized by settlers for sale in Auckland. One settler later observed that ‘The Ihumatau [sic] natives…were good neighbours and very much respected by the settlers around; nearly all their houses and fences have been destroyed; their church gutted…their land…occupied.’ Generations of Māori were condemned to lives of poverty and landlessness.
Crown official John Gorst later wrote with respect to one group of Māori evicted from their South Auckland homes that ‘All the old people showed the most intense grief at leaving a place where they had so long lived in peace and happiness, but they resolutely tore themselves away. The scene, as described to me by an eye-witness, was most pitiable’. This was New Zealand’s version of America’s Trail of Tears. Except hardly anyone here knows about it, because we don’t learn this history in school.
Two days later, on 12 July 1863, British troops crossed the Mangatāwhiri River. The invasion of Waikato had begun. Many of the people driven from their homes at Ihumātao and elsewhere fought alongside their Waikato whanaunga in defence of the Kīngitanga.
A professional standing army belonging to the world’s greatest military power was unleashed on a civilian population that was heavily outnumbered and did not have the firepower and technology available to the British. In this asymmetrical war, the British had armour-plated steamers. Māori had wooden canoes and were outnumbered four to one. In these circumstances, the Māori defenders suffered casualties that were almost certainly greater in relative terms than those incurred by New Zealand troops during World War One.
In 1927 a royal commission found that ‘a grave injustice was done’ to South Auckland Māori ‘by forcing them into the position of rebels and afterwards confiscating their lands’. In 1985 the Waitangi Tribunal concluded that ‘all sources agree that the Tainui people…never rebelled but were attacked by British troops in direct violation of Article II of the Treaty of Waitangi’.
It added with respect to Ihumātao that ‘not only were the inhabitants attacked, their homes and property destroyed and their cattle and horses stolen, but then they were punished by confiscation of their lands for a rebellion that never took place’. In 1995 the Crown apologised to Tainui for ‘the loss of lives because of the hostilities arising from its invasion’ and ‘the devastation of property and life’ which resulted.
From the outset, the Crown had intended funding its war of conquest through seizing Māori lands as these were occupied, planting military settlers on some of these to consolidate its control and selling the remainder for huge profits. Around 1.2 million acres of land was confiscated, stretching from Auckland all the way to the northern boundary of the King Country, a few kilometres beyond Kihikihi.
An area of 1100 acres was confiscated at Ihumātao, 260 acres of which was eventually restored to Māori deemed not to have engaged in, aided or abetted acts of ‘rebellion’ against the Crown. The rest was sold to settlers, including an area known as the Ōruarangi block that was granted to Gavin Wallace in 1867.
In 1999 Manukau City Council, Auckland Regional Council, the Department of Conservation and the Lottery Grants Board jointly purchased a 100-hectare site from several owners and two years later the Ōtuataua Stonefields Historic Reserve was officially opened. The lands adjacent to the stonefields reserve remained in Wallace family ownership until being sold to Fletcher Residential Ltd in 2016 after being rezoned a special housing area. It is this area that is the focus of current efforts by SOUL (Save Our Unique Landscape) to prevent 480 houses being constructed on the site.
In the 20th century, the construction of Auckland airport and nearby sewerage works caused more harm to those Māori who had returned to settle on a small fraction of their former lands. Those issues were reported on by the Waitangi Tribunal in its 1985 Manukau Report, which concluded that ‘The policies that led to the land wars and confiscations are the primary source of grievance, although they occurred last century. It is the continuation of similar policies into recent times that has prevented past wounds from healing.’
It is only through understanding of the historical context that we can fully make sense of the present. From whatever angle the current controversies are viewed, it seems clear that the legacies of Crown-directed invasion and dispossession against tangata whenua remain at Ihumātao today.

2020.10.14 19:04 Halls_of_Durin Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead

Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead
This is the third in a collection of true crime events, by themselves uniquely brutal and investigations themselves unquestionable, yet quietly set aside by the local public servants - be they police, justice workers, and others.
Note: This story contains the names and descriptions of deceased Aboriginal persons.
This series of crimes is not unique, but I think provides an illustrative example. Additionally, this is relating to a series of historical criminal events. The details are intentionally scarce as the perpetrators were worried about convictions so did not keep many records. The accounts of events from the local population were limited to those of the settlers.

The rolling green hills of Gippsland, Victoria [N1]
The Gunai/Kurnai people
The Gunai/Kurnai, formerly called the Gunai or Kurnai, is an Aboriginal Australian nation of south-east Australia. This post will refer to them as the Gunai Kurnai people. Their territory occupies most of present-day Gippsland and much of the southern slopes of the Victorian Alps. This land runs along the coast of southern Victoria, home to stunning old growth forests in East Gippsland and noted for its modern agriculture. Gippsland was a true Garden of Eden for European settlers. However, the Gunai Kurnai people were well established there. With about 4000 persons before European settlement Gippsland was more densely populated than many other areas.
In the mid-1990s, there was a so-called culture war (the "history wars") within the halls of Australian historic academia [N2]. This was a fierce debate driven by a bone of contention - it was a long-held, deeply believed myth that Australia was a county where explanation into Abogional lands was a largely peaceful one. During that time even calculating the number of Aboriginal dead was seen as a controversial attempt at changing history and assigning blame needlessly. When Australian history began to develop as its own area of interest in the 1950s there was little to no attention paid to Aboriginal Australian history; at best it was a backdrop to the European experience and at worst of a fluke of perpetuation by unusually clever beasts.Now there is a map available showing the locations of the Colonial Frontier Massacres from 1780 to 1930 [N3].
Note that on Tasmania the native Palawa is fully extinct, as is their language and culture: in 1803 there was an estimated 3,000 to 15,000 people but within thirty years there was just 47. The final death keel came where the last 400 persons were incarcerated in camps where most died from a toxic mixture of malnutrition and disease. Some current descendants of Palawa women and European men refer to themselves as Aboriginal Tasmanians.

The Accused

One of six historical bronze figures, McMillan is represented by a coat of arms, Scottish thistle, and two human skulls in a saddlebag. By Annemieke Mien, 1986. [N5]
Angus McMillan, such a famed explorer that his cairn lists the sites he discovered, is also a notable mass murderer. He led many of the Gippsland massacres a ten year period starting in 1940 that killed or displaced the Gunai Kurnai. Born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland McMillan migrated to Australia in 1838; by the time of the Warrigal Creek Massacre he was entrenched in pastoral activities, leading many of the assaults on the Gunai Kurnai. Presently, nineteen monuments honouring McMillian exist in Gippsland, his homestead was preserved then moved to its current location at the open-air museum Old Gippstown. The federal seat was named after him in 1948. The Federal Division of McMillan was renamed Division of Monash in 2018.
Captain William Dana was born in England into a family of notable military experience. He established the Native Police Corps in what would become Victoria. He was also responsible for the Barmah Lake and Snowy River massacres. The Corps is considered reasonable for 125 deaths over two decades. Dana was notable for refusing to arrest Aboriginal people, preferring to have them shot.
The reports on Barmah Lake do not list any official deaths. Instead, an unofficial verbal report made to GA Robinson by a man only referred to as Allen made the following statement:
...a number of men also women were shot by Dana's party at the Murry [sic] and children were knocked on the head with carrabines [sic]. They first sent out a party to look for the natives and then went and planted themselves in a scrub and sent two or three troopers to round or drive them like sheep to be large party carrelled; then they commenced firing and shot some of them in the river. Dana told me he had a brush with the natives. He went to the Murry [sic] by the Campaspe and returned said 20 men, one woman, five children were shot. Kelsh's overseer told me that he, Dana, said he would turn the natives out. (Robinson 5 Jan 1844). [N6]
The Deaths

October–December 1840: Nuntin Station
In October 1840, squatter Angus McMillan brought down cattle from Numblamungie to the stock run at Nuntin in Gippsland. He left his men in charge there and on his return some weeks later they told him that the Kurnai had scattered the stock and attacked them. McMillan gathered his stockmen together, and massacred any Kurnai [possibly Gunnai or Tatungalung or Braiakaulung speakers] at Boney Point on the confluence of the Avon and Perry Rivers. McMillan admitted to this incident in a letter to Lieutenant Governor La Trobe on August 25, 1853. When G.A. Robinson travelled through this area in 1844, he saw many human bones and skulls along the shores of Lake Wellington. Historian P. D. Gardner considers that at least 15-20 Aborigines were killed. Total: 20

June 1843: Warrigal Creek Massacre [N7]
In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Lachlan Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy'. They went on a five days rampage, killing over 150.

Box’s Creek Massacre
In 1841 some thirty Kurnai were murdered by European settlers at Box’s Creek (also known as Butcher’s Creek). They were pursued in retaliation for allegedly spearing cattle and trapped on a peninsula of land at Bancroft Bay by an armed party of twelve. On that strip of land, hemmed by endless water, they were slaughtered.
Warrigal Creek Massacre
In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. According to G.A. Robinson he was murdered after some depraved white men, had, in a fit of drunkenness, 'shot and killed some friendly natives.' An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Ronald Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy' and they appear to have set out on a five day rampage attacking 4 Aboriginal campsites.
After slaughtering about 75 at Warrigal Creek Waterhole and a further 25 at Warrigal Creek mouth, they then shot down another family group of 25 at Freshwater Creek, before moving on to Gammon Creek. In reviewing every known account of the massacre in 2001, Peter Gardiner considers that Gammon Creek was the last in the rampage and that 25 Kurnai were slaughtered and human bones later found. In all 150 Kurnai were killed in the 5-day rampage across 4 sites. The rampage would fit the criteria of 'genocidal massacre'. In reviewing every known account of the rampage in 2001, Peter Gardner considers Warrigal Creek mouth was the second campsite where 25 Aboriginal people were killed.
Afterwards, McMillan kept a hessian bag of human skulls for some time after the event.
Human bones have been found at the site on several occasions. Total: 150
The White Woman of Gippsland
A rumour around the area led to the repeated abuse of Gunai Kurnai by local pastoral settlers. They thought that a white woman had been kidnapped and was being held and raped by locals of Gippsland. Repeated raids were held based on the discovery of woman's undergarments and the assumption that survivors of a shipwreck in 1836 made it to shore. The white men...
"They also carried a number of handkerchiefs, with the following notice printed in English and Gaelic:
There are 14 armed men in search of you. Be cautious and rush to them when you see them near you. Be particularly on the look-out every dawn of morning. For then the party are in hopes of rescuing you. The white settlement is towards the setting sun.
Possibly this is the only instance of Gaelic having been used officially in Victoria, the reason being the supposed loss of a ship in Bass Straits with a number ol' Highland immigrants, many of whom at that period were unacquainted with English.
The expedition succeeded in taking prisoner the woman's supposed captor, Bunjaleena. But, although he was imprisoned and not released until he undertook to deliver her up, that wily individual only appears to have led the police a succession of wild goose chases. One interesting find they made, however, was the figurehead of a small vessel. It was the bust of a woman. The blacks carried it aboutwith them, and appeared to hold it in great reverence, for it was only obtained from them with the greatest difficulty.
The late Mr. Allan McLean always expressed himself as having been very doubtful of a white woman ever having been with the Gippsland blacks, asserting that the figurehead secured by the third expedition was the fonset orgio of the various reports. How he held this view it is hard to conceive, for on October 29, 1847, only four miles away from Tyers' Camp, a native trooper found the dead body ofa white woman and a half-caste child. The following day Angus McMillan held an inquiry, but nothing was found by which the unfortunate's identity could be established." [N8]
It's been suggested that the figurehead is the most likely theory as to the rumours of the White Woman of Gippsland and the repeated raids were driven by hysteria. Total: 50
In 1846 Gippsland squatter Henry Meyrick wrote in a letter home to his relatives in England:
The blacks are very quiet here now, poor wretches. No wild beast of the forest was ever hunted down with such unsparing perseverance as they are. Men, women and children are shot whenever they can be met with … I have protested against it at every station I have been in Gippsland, in the strongest language, but these things are kept very secret as the penalty would certainly be hanging … For myself, if I caught a black actually killing my sheep, I would shoot him with as little remorse as I would a wild dog, but no consideration on earth would induce me to ride into a camp and fire on them indiscriminately, as is the custom whenever the smoke is seen. They [the Aborigines] will very shortly be extinct. It is impossible to say how many have been shot, but I am convinced that not less than 500 have been murdered altogether. [N10]

Wellington also had Portugal maintaining food supply lines, at least during the Spanish campaign.
The British were more used to preserving food for winter than the French. Smoking, pickling, drying, sugaring foods made supply lines easier to manage. Long use-by dates!

I have seen a lot of post saying that NZ will be going mid November. Have any applicants from Auckland or Wellington received any information, regarding when the departure date is in November?. If so have you also been given your placement already.

2020.10.06 04:00 patery Are index funds always better?

I've been reading for decades about how bad active management is. If you start browsing funds on Morningstar, the data looks pretty bad indeed. Why have we decided to throw out the baby with the bath water? Why isn't the advice to look for actively managed funds which deliver value?
When I look at growth of $10k charts from the big, budget active funds like Vanguard and T Rowe Price (and American Funds, minus the load), they almost always outperform their benchmarks. Doing a poor man's Monte Carlo (varying timeframes and looking at historical results), I hardly see any time periods where the active funds ended up worse off than their benchmarks. When it comes to fund of funds, if you look at their components they're often indices underneath, with most of their fees going to trading in more expensive markets where inefficiencies are greater.
Here's two examples to consider: Vanguard Wellington and TRP Balanced. Both are super old funds, with positive alpha, better Sharpe ratios, and drawdowns.
An argument I can see is that passive strategies give you more flexibility in customizing your portfolio, as we have a limited amount of good funds like these. The only way to get a glide path prior to Target Date funds was to use index funds for example. And, even then, they only come in a few buckets. The same is true for target risk funds. They all seem to be missing low/high equity ratios for example (ie 10% or 90% equities).
Am I misunderstanding how to value these maybes? Are they actually bad investments and I just have a poor understanding of the value they're delivering? In that case, I may be better off at a place like Betterment.

2020.10.06 01:32 Patnix5 Help choosing my retirement investments

Intro + Background
Hi, I'm 24 recently graduated and am enrolling in my company 401k through vanguard. I make $100k flat, and get a 100% match for first 3% and a 50% match for next 2% up to 5% of my salary. I believe in short if I put at least $5k my employer puts $4k.
I have a quite a few options in my 401k. I was initially planning on doing a 3 fund portfolio with 20% total international stock market, 70% total stock market, and 10% total bond market. It would be a aggressive portfolio but at 24 I think I've read that it is around where you want to be.
Target date fund:
My employer offers a target date fund (Target Retirement 2060 Trust Plus to be exact). It fits my portfolio with 90% stocks and 10% bonds. It does, however, have 35% in international stocks then my planned 20%. In any case, it holds institutional plus shares at vanguard and has an expense ratio of 0.06%. Which I think is very low. One of the reasons most people always say to manage your own portfolio is due to higher expense ratios. If that's not the case as seen here would it be advisable to go this route?
Individual funds:
Portfolio Distribution:
Since there is no VTSAX equivalent my 3 fund portfolio would have to be 4 funds. Though I'm not sure if I have to combine s&p 500 fund with extended market which is small and midcap or another small cap. I do have option of Wellington CIF Ii Small Cap 2000 A1 with expense ration 0.92%. I might need some help with this part since I'm not entire sure.
The 4 fund portfolio above all has expense ratios under 0.1% which is great and the target date fund has 0.06%. so which way should I go? I'm not sure the math behind getting a total expense ratio for my created portfolio to compare directly against the target date fund. Is the target date funds expense ratio low enough that I'd be okay going that route?
Thanks for any help and sorry for long post. Also sorry about some of the funds (trusts?) not having symbols for you to look up I guess things work different when buying through 401k. If you need additional information let me know.

EDIT: Just updated the formatting to make it slightly easier to read. :D

2020.10.05 03:43 PhotonGenie House buying in Wellington - a first homes buyers experience/guide

My partner and I have recently purchased a house in Wellington and I thought it might be useful to others who are about to start looking or are in the middle of the process to write up about our experiences. On that note, these are my opinions and your experience may/will vary.
This guide is going to assume that you have a deposit lined up, we used our KiwiSaver so we had to decide how much of it we wanted to use. You may also be eligible for a home start grant, which you can check here:
Before the viewing -
First you are going to need to find a house you want to look at, there are a few websites that I used to look at properties:
There are a few things you want to consider, what area do you want to look in, how many rooms are you looking at wanting, does it need to be close to schools, what is the commute like?
There is a sort of wave moving out from Wellington of increasing prices as people are looking for affordable homes to buy, you really want to be on the right side of that wave.
I find by sorting by new listings you can see when the latest properties have been listed and get in as quickly as possible.
You will also need to sort out a lawyer, they will walk you through all the legalities of purchasing a house and also check the title of any purchase you are looking at. Title check and pre-purchase work cost us around $200-$300 per house. After a time we found that we knew what we were looking for in the documentation and if a property needed a title check or not, so did not use our lawyer for every offer we submitted.
The viewing
When you have decided to view a property this can be done in 2 ways, at a private viewing or an open home. You can arrange a viewing with the property agent or take note of the open home. Most open homes happen on Sundays and I would aim to see 4-6 every weekend.
When you get to the open home be prepared as it can be very busy, make sure you get a chance to introduce yourself to the agent. If you like the property they will be the people who are selling you to the homeowners, so be polite and friendly. I would suggest having a few questions ready for the agent, for example:
- Are there any disclosures? This is usually where they will tell you about any known issues with the property, like unconsented work or asbestos.
- Expected price? They may or may not give you a price, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
- If the house is under offer already? you can always put in a backup offer.
- What the purchase method is? This will usually be one of tow 'tender' or 'price by negotiation'. Tender has a date when all the offers will be presented to the homeowners. Price by negotiation is when the offers will be presented to the owner as they come into the agent. With these, you need to be quick. To give you an idea the house we bought was on the market for 8 days, we offered the day after the open home.
- Is there is a building report? if there is not then ask if any other offers have completed builders reports, this way you an enquire to get the report re-signed to you. This is usually at a reduced cost, saving you a bit of money. A new builders report can cost anywhere between $600-$1000, a re-sign is usually around $300.
The house
When you are looking at the house you need to have in mind what is important to you and what you can compromise on. size of the rooms, the layout of the house. What can you upgrade in time, note new kitchens and bathrooms can be done at a later date. Other things you want to look at are:
- Flashings, keeps water out of doorways and windows
- Heating, is there a heat pump?
- Insulation, is ceiling and floor insulation installed
- Amenities, is the dishwashefridge included in the property ( ask the agent or it will be included on the offer documents)
- Moisture, the best place to look is in the corners of window sills. Does it feel soft and spongy?
- Floors, are they sagging anywhere, may be a sign of settlement.
- Roof, is there rust present, or does it look like it may need replacing in the near future.
- Cladding, what type is it? Is it in good condition?
When was the house build? For a certain period between the 80s and mid-2000s houses in NZ were not built to a great standard and as such could be rotting from the inside out which will get very costly. Check out this for more information:
LIM Report - (thank you Angry_Sparrow) "A LIM can tell you about flooding hazards, weathertightness issues and previous claims, land instability, the rates, outstanding building consents etc etc" We found that LIM reports were helpful when dealing with an interesting title, for example cross lease. You can also find a lot of this information out on the respective councils website, hutt valley being the best.
The offer
So you have decided to make an offer on a property, this is an exciting time. You need to ask the agent for the offer documentation and decide what conditions you want to put on the offer. These are things like a building report condition or finance condition. However you want to keep your offer as clean as possible, the owner wants as little obstacles to the sale of the house. So if the house is being sold by tender you can look into getting a builders report done before the tender date. This means you can submit your offer with no builders report condition.
Send the offer documentation to your lawyer for the once over, they will let you know if any wording needs to be updated or new clauses added.
Now comes the difficult bit, how much to offer? This comes with experience and keeping an eye on the market. Most of the houses will come with an RV, but take this with a pinch of salt as it can be wildly inaccurate. Note the date the RV was assessed and slowly you will get an idea of what properties are going for. Use the below 3 websites and look at the estimates.
Trademe insights
Look at similar properties that have sold recently (same size, same number of rooms, in the same area) and calculate how much they have sold over RV. This will give you a good indicator of how much it will go for. Also take into account the condition of the property, if it has a new kitchen etc will put the price of the house up.
I think I will finish this here as its already the longest post I have ever made. Feel free to ask questions below and I will try to answer them.
The last thing I will say is to remain positive. The market is crazy out there and you are going to go through some ups and downs. We must have gone to more than 50 open homes and got our house on the 6th offer. so keep at it.
Thank you and good luck
One happy new homeowner.

2020.10.04 23:40 chimpwithalimp /r/Wellington Newbie Night drinks and chat, Friday Oct 16th, 6.30pm onwards at Heyday on Cuba street. Come and say hello!

The last few we've hosted have gone great with loads of new people meeting regulars, so I booked in another. Hopefully you can make it.
Please join us for drinks, chat and laughter at Heyday Beer, Cuba st on Friday Oct 16th, 6.30pm. I'll be there from early and until it starts to wind down. Put it in your calendar!
Heyday Beer Co. is located at 264 Cuba St. Te Aro. Wellington. (map)
We make this an easy meetup to mingle and chat and everyone is very welcome, new or regular, lurker or daily poster. In fact, the more people that show up, the merrier we'll be. In case you're wondering about demographics, ages typically range roughly 20s to 40's, equal male and female, but if you're legally allowed be in a bar, you're very welcome along.
I'll be trying to do my normal gig of running around welcoming everyone, so please do say hello to me if we haven't met yet (and if we have, of course)!
If you have concerns about going in alone and not knowing anyone, just mention it in the comments and we can sort that. People always offer to meet a little beforehand to help people come along. The events are designed really to not be intimidating and I really try to ensure that people are welcomed and feel comfy. This is the meetup people use as an example when we get asked "How do I make friends in Wellington?".
The very lovely Chloe from Heyday has confirmed we have a section booked out that can grow and shrink based on numbers, and we will probably be the biggest group there so it'll be easy to to find us. I'll pop some snoos and other indicators around too. Even an eight foot tall yellow banner donated by the lovely scotchable.
Let us know in a reply here if you can make it. I really hope to see any many of you as possible!
Points of interest (will be added closer to date):
  • If you're an established member and have been to a few, please consider mingling and getting to know some new folks. It's incredibly valuable to the community. A small welcome or friendly face can make all the difference.
  • We're at the back, big yellow banner!!

2020.10.02 17:04 rchrd92182 What’s the better strategy for Traditional IRA?

Currently 38 years old and have 100% of my traditional IRA in Vanguards 2045 target date fund.
Someone recommended I do 50%/50% splits between the Wellington and Wellesley funds instead because of their returns, dividends, and capital gains. Thoughts?

2020.09.30 15:14 3bananasaday 401k - Roth - Taxable fund selection

If you were only buying One fund per account would this make sense:
401k: target date (not Vanguard but my company has an 85/15 stock/bond option with 0.14 expense ratio)
Roth: Wellington
Taxable: VT
And if not, what would you swap?

[Tavia pulls out her gun and shoots Tyler in the head, killing his undead self.]
Tavia: “Now we can go…”
Samuel: “Becca… we need to move…”
Becca: “O-Okay…”
[Samuel helped Becca to her feet and the group moved away from the bridge, resuming their path to Wellington.]

2020.09.26 09:44 finnagains The First 'Dune' Trailer - by Trevor Lynch • 24 Sept 2020

Dune Trailer -
If movies can have previews, why can’t movie critics release “pre-reviews”? I ask because September 9th was the release date of the first trailer for the first half of Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune.
Dune is one of the most-anticipated movies of 2020. Trailers can build up a lot of excitement for a film, but they are immediately forgotten when the movie actually appears. Yet due to COVID-19, there is a real chance that more people will see the movie’s trailer online than will see the actual film in theaters when it is released in December, and it may take months before the film is released on video and streaming services. Until that time, this and any subsequent trailers will eclipse the film itself.
Hence this little experiment. I want to prereview Dune based on the first trailer, plus other information gleaned from interviews and promotional materials. When (and if) you see the film, you can judge my prereview for prescience.
Any Dune adaptation is highly significant, because the novel is one of the great works of twentieth-century popular fiction, straddling both the sci-fi and fantasy genres. First published in 1965, Dune inspired legions of fans. Herbert wrote five sequels, and after his death his son Brian Herbert, together with Kevin J. Anderson, wrote more than a dozen Dune universe books, none of which I have read.
This movie is also significant because Dune has already inspired a series of screen adaptations. The first was by Alejandro Jodorowsky, which was highly influential even though it was never filmed. David Lynch’s 1984 Dune belongs in the category of great flawed films. In 2000, the Sci-Fi Channel did a four-and-a-half-hour, three-part Dune miniseries, which I thought was pretty bad, although its sequel, the Children of Dune miniseries (2003) is surprisingly good.
Dune also inspired screen homages and rip offs, most notably the vast Star Wars “franchise”—which is what the movie industry calls a “mythos.”
Beyond that, a Dune adaptation is politically important because, as I have argued in “Archaeofuturist Fiction: Frank Herbert’s Dune,” , Herbert’s vision is deeply reactionary, anti-modernist, and anti-liberal—and for quite compelling reasons.
Based on his movies Sicario, Arrival, and Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve is a highly talented director of both science fiction and action films. Thus he was a good choice to direct Dune. But will Dune be a good movie? Will it be better than the Lynch or the Sci-Fi Channel’s versions? (Yes, the Sci-Fi Channel adaptation was inferior to Lynch, but it included plot elements omitted by Lynch but not by Villeneuve, so it is reasonable to compare the two.) Will Villeneuve’s film bear any relation to Jodorowsky’s Dune? This three minute, five second trailer contains many clues.
Perhaps the chief flaw of Lynch’s Dune are the clunky special effects. The Sci-Fi Channel version’s effects also look cheap. Based on the trailer and Villeneuve’s other science fiction efforts, this adaptation beats the rivals easily in this department. But this is largely due to advances in technology. The big question is whether Villeneuve’s use of the new technology be tasteful or vulgar. Based on the trailer, I can’t yet decide. Aside from the sandworms, most of the effects in the trailer are static images that give one a sense of the design of vessels. But the test of effects is how well they move.
Another flaw of Lynch’s Dune was a lack of grand landscape photography, especially on the watery world of Caladan and the desert planet of Arrakis. Lynch mostly used models without much context. Fortunately, the trailer shows us glimpses of dramatic vistas on both planets. Another flaw of Lynch’s Arrakis is that many of the scenes, even in the desert, are dark, gloomy, and ugly. Deserts are beautiful places, but you’d never know that from the Lynch film. Unfortunately, based on the new trailer, Villeneuve’s Arrakis is almost as dark and ugly as Lynch’s.
Villeneuve’s movie dramatizes the first half of the Dune novel. The setting is more than 20,000 years in the future. Mankind has colonized the entire galaxy. No other intelligent life forms have been found. Because of the great distances between planets and the high cost of space travel, the political order is feudal. Noble houses (Dukes, Counts, Barons) rule entire planets, all of them subordinated to the Padishah Emperor on far-off Kaitain.
In addition to the noble houses, the other major powers are secretive initiatic societies dedicated to the development of human capacities.
The Spacing Guild has developed higher mathematics and prescience to traverse space.
The Bene Tleilax brotherhood, who are Sufis, has developed mnemonics and to create “mentats” (human computers, because artificial intelligence is religiously prohibited), yogic superpowers that allow them to shift shapes, and genetic engineering techniques.
The Bene Gesserit sisterhood has developed skills in martial arts (the Weirding Way), memory sharing, hyper-observation and abductive reasoning, seduction and sex, religious and political deception, and eugenics.
Nobody knows what their ultimate goal is, but their proximal goal—which they are nearing—is breeding a superman, the Kwisatz Haderach (shortener of the way), a Janus-like figure who will be able to access all of his ancestors’ memories as well as presciently peer into the future.
The most valuable resource in the universe is the so-called spice mélange, harvested from the sands of Arrakis, also known as Dune. The spice extends life but also expands the mind, thus it is used by the Guild, Tleilaxu, and Bene Gesserit in all their schemes to transcend the human condition.
The plot of Dune centers on the struggle of two noble houses, the Atreides and the Harkonnen, for control of Arrakis. But this is no normal aristocratic feud, because the most precious resource in the universe is at stake, and one of the players, Paul Atreides, the fourteen-year-old heir to Arrakis, may well be the Kwisatz Haderach the sisterhood has been searching for.
In the trailer the two primary characters are Paul Atreides, (played by Timothée Chalamet) and the Bene Gesserit Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam (Charlotte Rampling), who has come to test Paul’s powers on the eve of the Atreides’ departure to take control of Arrakis. Their scene and bits of dialogue from it are intercut with flashes of events to come as the Atreides are attacked on Arrakis by the Harkonnen. Paul and his mother are forced to flee to the desert, where they take refuge with the Fremen, the indigenous people of Arrakis.
I wasn’t thrilled when I heard that Chalamet was cast as Paul. He does not look as good as Lynch’s Kyle MacLachlan or the Sci-Fi Channel’s Alec Newman. He looks too delicate for the action sequences. But it is difficult to find an actor who can pass for a teenager and handle the role. Judging from the trailer, however, Chalamet has some steel in him. He will probably do the character credit.
One of the best sequences in Lynch’s film is when the Reverend Mother tests Paul with “the box.” We see glimpses of this in the trailer. Lynch’s Reverend Mother was played beautifully by Siân Phillips. In the Sci-Fi series, she was played by a Czech actress, Zuzana Geislerová, who would have been forgettable if her stupid hats and heavy accent had not made her ridiculous. (She was much better in Children of Dune.) Based on the trailer, Rampling has poise and a great voice. She will do justice to the role.
The only other character in the trailer with significant lines is Duncan Idaho. (Baron Harkonnen and Chani have just a few words.) Although Idaho is a very important character, especially in the subsequent books, Lynch’s adaptation left little room for Idaho, who was played by Richard Jordan. In the Sci-Fi miniseries, he was played by the forgettable James Watson. (In Children of Dune he was memorably played by Edward Atterton.) Villeneuve has cast the half-Hawaiian bodybuildeaction hero Jason Momoa to play Idaho.
Momoa is a very good choice. The first half of Dune contains a number of flight and fight scenes featuring Idaho that were cut by Lynch. These will make excellent action sequences, so Momoa with his heroic physique and martial arts skills will shine in them. As for Momoa’s mixed race ancestry: Duncan Idaho is really the only character in Dune who is described as not being white. “Idaho” is an American Indian name, and the character is described as having high cheekbones, a somewhat flat face, and dark, wavy hair like a karakul sheep. Momoa actually looks the part.
Oscar Isaac plays Duke Leto Atreides. This is actually a better choice than Lynch’s Jürgen Prochnow and Sci-Fi’s William Hurt, since the Atreides are supposed to have a Mediterranean look (brunette, aquiline noses) and descend from the ancient Greek house of Atreus. Isaac, who is of Cuban, Guatemalan, and French ancestry, looks the part. Chalamet, who is half-French, half-Jewish, does so as well.
A beautiful Scottish-Swedish actress, Rebecca Ferguson, plays Lady Jessica, Paul’s mother. She looks good, but not as good as Francesca Annis in Lynch’s film. Saskia Reeves in the Sci-Fi series was too earthy. Alice Kriege (the Borg Queen) was, however, utterly regal in Children of Dune.
Just as Kyle MacLachlan looked like he could have been the child of Jürgen Prochnow and Francesca Annis, Chalamet looks like he could be the son of Isaac and Ferguson.
Josh Brolin is a great choice for Gurney Halleck, the Atreides weapons master, who was memorably played by Patrick Steward in Lynch’s film.
I can’t complain about Villeneuve casting a Chinaman to play the traitor, Dr. Wellington Yueh, even though he was not described as oriental. Thufir Hawat, the Atreides mentat and Master of Assassins, is played by Stephen McKinley Henderson, who has some black ancestry, but who looks quite white. So even this choice doesn’t really stray from Herbert’s vision.
As for the Harkonnens: Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård plays the mad Baron, Vladimir Harkonnen. Dave Bautista plays his brutish nephew Glossu Rabban. Bautista is part Philippino, but is in whiteface. The Baron’s nephew, Feyd Rautha, does not appear in this movie. David Dastmalchian plays the Harkonnens’ twisted mentat Piter De Vries. With his Armenian, Iranian, and European ancestry, Dastmalchian is a strange looking guy and inspired casting for this role, which was memorably played by Brad Dourif in the Lynch film.
The Fremen leader Stigar is played by Javier Bardem. He’s a great actor and will be the best Stilgar yet, although Steven Berkoff was outstanding in Children of Dune.
Unfortunately, at this point Villeneuve’s casting goes completely off the rails.
The character of the Imperial Planetologist, Dr. Liet Kynes, is described by Herbert as a natural leader of astonishing nobility as well as a scientific genius. He was memorably portrayed by Max von Sydow in Lynch’s film. Villeneuve has decided to cast Kynes as a very black woman (Sharon Duncan-Brewster).
This is such outrageous political correctness that Villeneuve claimed that it was necessitated by his choice of a mulatto actress, Zendaya, to play Liet’s daughter Chani, who becomes Paul’s love interest.
This argument is complete nonsense, however, since Zendaya presumably had a white male parent, so there was no need other than blatant racial appropriation to change Kynes’ sex and race. And, of course, it is also racial appropriation to cast his daughter as a mulatto.
But it gets worse. Villeneuve casts two other Fremen with black actors as well. Harah, the wife of Stilgar, is played by Gloria Obianyo. Jamis, who fights with Paul and is killed, is played by Babs Olusanmokun.
This is a very bad sign, for it seems likely that Villeneuve wishes to portray the Fremen, who are the good guys, as primarily non-white. Given that their enemies, the Harkonnens, are depicted with shaved heads and conspicuously white skin, Villeneuve is turning Dune into an anti-white race-war prosecuted by non-whites and white race-mixers (Paul, Stilgar). This isn’t Frank Herbert’s Dune. Like every other piece of mainstream entertainment, Villeneuve’s Dune is just another version of the White Genocide script.
The fact that America has been convulsed for four months by people LARPing the same script is producing a great deal of fatigue for blacks and their white saviors. If COVID does not turn audiences away in droves, this blackface desecration of Herbert’s vision just might. In the past, I could overlook this kind of casting if other parts of the story were good. I don’t think I can do that anymore. This isn’t a game. Our race and civilization are dying, and the politicians, journalists, activists, and artists who are promoting the Great Replacement are simply evil. Denis Villeneuve has desecrated Dune. This movie deserves to bomb as badly as Disney’s Star Wars.

2020.09.25 13:39 Worm2120 DIA conspiracy made top page of this sub finally!!! Now seems like the perfect time to maybe share new things, but more importantly ask for help in connecting MAJOR dots. They aren't THAT smart, we can solve this.

I'm so happy to see people are looking at Denver Airport again, however we were never looking close enough. I've been interested in DIA for quite a long time now and within the last year had the chance of visiting, and can't help but wonder why no one has ever found anything?
When you reach this point as a Conspiracy Hypothesizer (I didn't stutter), you have to realize that answer is still there, you just have to see the issue in a way many others aren't.
Now, to brush up on the basics of DIA:
At 33,531 acres (52.4 sq mi; 135.7 km2),[3] it is the largest airport in North America by land area and the second largest in the world, behind King Fahd International Airport.[4] Runway 1634L, with a length of 16,000 feet (3.03 mi; 4.88 km), is the longest public use runway in North America and the seventh longest in the world.
For reference; Manhattan stands at 22.82 mi^2, meaning you could fit Manhattan TWICE in DIA's property.
The runways totally DO look like Swastikas. You can't even deny it.
-Not to mention they openly admit, but never DISPROVE any conspiracies surrounding the airport. The effect has been... well no one thinks DIA is up to anything really anymore from workers claiming they've never seen anything to gargoyles literally mocking you for thinking they are up to something, they did a great job considering I still smell shit in the air and it isn't me. Yet the rest of the population seems to have forgotten some VERY important history.
Now onto some deeper thoughts:
The infamous "New world airport commission" stone.
The biggest thing anyone has pulled from this was that infamous, yet non-existent group that is first listed under "Contributors". While I agree this is strange, there is so much more to this stone guys.
March (3) 19, 1994.
1+9+1+9+9+4 = 33
Time Capsule to be opened in 2094 "for the people of Colorado"
20 + 9 + 4 = 33
-This date surrounding 1994 CANNOT BE COINCIDENTAL. I will prove it... keep reading.
Important person:
-Wellington E. Webb.
If you google that name with "Freemason", you'll find his PERSONAL WEBSITE. Where it strictly lists he is a 33rd degree mason, yet you cannot find that info anywhere else. This man is very mysterious to me and I'd love if someone can help me dig on all of this info. ANYWAY:
Wellington Webb's 1991 bid for mayor included his "Sneaker Campaign", in which he walked door to door through a large portion of Denver, introducing himself as a relatively unknown candidate.
Unknown candidate.
Webb served as mayor of Denver for 12 years, from 1991 to 2003. One highlight of his years in office was the South Platte River Corridor Project, involving commercial and residential redevelopment, as well as reclamation of park land, along the South Platte River in central Denver. He was also mayor at the time of the completion of Denver International Airport, started by his predecessor, Federico Peña.
Finished DIA, and is a 33rd degree Freemason. His name is on the stone, so this isn't hard to believe, I mean like he John Hancocked the thing lmao. Also in 1994:
In 1994, officials ordered a $62 million backup baggage system built to speed the airport's opening and to fill in until the kinks could be worked out of the main system.
So, Wellington Webb took over as mayor in 91', delayed DIA's opening 4 times and went so far over budget for an airport its unreal. The airport opened in 95', making 1994, the year the stone was also laid, the last year DIA would be closed and anything not hidden could be hidden.
Why am I so focused on 1994 and the stone?
-I was dumbfounded once I REALLY looked at the stone closer. Why is everyone so tied up on "The New World Airport Commission" if it doesn't exist on paper? Perhaps the members are listed on the stone I thought...
Martin Marietta Aeronautics.
That is the second name listed, right below the new world airport commission. Who is this company and why has no one ever heard of it you're wondering? Because in 1995, The Martin Marietta Corporation merged with the Lockheed Corporation to form what we now know today as: Lockheed Martin. This would make 1994 the last year that "Martin Marietta Aeronautics" would even exist, thus placing the stone in this year would never raise suspicion of conspiracy to anyone in the future, because Lockheed Martin is the most advanced technological companies in the entire world. Especially regarding military equipment. Just read up on some patents that Lockheed Martin holds to understand the true gravity of what this means.
Martin Marietta Corporation + Lockheed Corporation = Lockheed Martin = largest military arms supplier in the entire world, arguably holding the most advanced tech of our race = The New World Airport Commission? Why else would Martin Marietta hold any relevance to DIA whatsoever?
Fentress Bradburn Architects is also listed, though I couldn't find anything relevant but a quote:
I don't begin with a preconceived notion of what a building should be – it is not a sculpture. I prefer to patiently search through extensive discovery until I find a seam somewhere, crack it open and discover the art inside.[27]
from their Wikipedia page. The stone also lists:
Benjamin H. Bell Jr. and Claude w. Gray Sr. Both are very high ranking Freemasons, you've never heard of them before and cannot find ANYTHING online about these people EXCEPT for Freemason websites. VERY strange and I really need help finding out more, these people are smart but they are naive in thinking they can't be caught, the answer is here somewhere.
Now, this is gonna get me some hate I bet but I need to mention it: Wellington E. Webb, Benjamin H. Bell Jr, and Claude W. Gray Sr, are ALL 33rd degree African Americans. I don't know what this means or why, but I just know... it means something. Especially considering His recent political views from this 2020 interview. Notice him cheering on the violence of BLM protests:
Webb: I am so proud of these kids protesting that I boil over with pride. It’s also good to continue to see the old-timers who have been protesting police brutality and social justice issues for decades.
Strange markings on the floors:
Dzit Dit Gaii - "White Mountain" - Blanca peak, Colorado. If you're paying close attention... you'll notice the ranking for this mountain for North American highest mountain peaks is ranked... 33rd. Why would this be put in a strange language in the middle of the airport? HMMMMMMMMMMMMM. No coincidences.
Anywho, I know DIA has just loads of shit out of the ordinary and spending multiple hundreds of millions of dollars for a "Luggage system" that failed is just not true. If you've worked there, I can assure you, you have not seen all 53sq Miles of that location and you never will. They could MILES underground for all we know and from the tech they can have. Anyway Im really tired so thats all I got for now lol, please help me expand on this info WE CAN SOLVE THIS MYSTERY PEOPLE WE JUST GOTTA THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!!!
EDIT: Just wanted to add that 54.2sq miles is also 33,531 acres... gotttaaaa love the 33rd.
EDIT2: just wanted to state that on a map, its eerie that DIA is practically the start of Denver.
Also, I took my own picture of Bluecifier when I flew in to DIA... ill never forget that horse man.
