Campbell Venning Episode 1.jpg

An interview with The Property Factory founder – Campbell Venning, on what inspired him to create the Property Factory’s; bulk wholesale property sourcing model, more than a decade ago and the types of property opportunities he focuses on sourcing for his clients. Campbell touches on some of the pitfalls to watch out for when buying off the plan, the key issues a typical investor would never ask about and why developers and builders want to work with The Property Factory, instead of just selling through real estate agents or directly.

Campbell shares why due diligence is so complex when critiquing new projects and explains the evolution of investors away from buying older property and into brand new stock to minimise maintenance and offer better-quality dwellings to tenants. He shares his 1-3 year outlook on the New Zealand property market and where he sees the geographic opportunities are next for investors. Campbell gives insights into some of The Property Factory projects in the pipeline, that the team are doing due diligence on at the moment.
