Chinese has increased buying and renting power in New Zealand due to several reasons. The main reason is the growth in population. Between 2001 and 2013, the New Zealand residents that identified themselves as Chinese in heritage increased by 13 percent (100,680 people to 171,000 people based on the Census). The population growth is due to the influx of Chinese born immigrates moving into the country. These immigrates are made of students and those enticed by the immigration initiatives related to skilled based immigration and family immigration acts.

These students, skilled workers and family units have now become a large buying demographic with in the country. With an average median home sell price of $400,000 so far for this year (according to landlords.co.nz), property owners are looking to sell or rent homes to the global market and take advantage of the Chinese influx of buyers. This is where PropertyOnly NZ comes in. New Zealand property owners and renters looking for flatemates can now post their properties on the New Zealand based site for current New Zealand residents to view and have the ad instantly translated into Chinese for possible new New Zealand residents to view.
