networkn:
I'd suggest that for most people it would have an opposite effect. Higher house values only affect you in the positive once you sell, until then you have higher property taxes, higher insurances and potentially a bunch of other value affected expenses, making most worse off.

Also worth noting that people usually buy in the same market as they are selling, so they got more for their house and paid more for the one they subsequently bought. 



1. People that don't own a home stop trying to save for a deposit as they think it's out of their reach. They end up spending it all instead of saving some of it

2. People that do own a home "feel" wealthier because of the rising equity in it and borrow against it for that new car, boat, boob job etc... The Bank's are happy to lend as your LVR is only 40% and at 6% p.a. interest it's much cheaper than hire purchase.

joker97: do we celebrate black Friday? or US only?


Click Monday would be as close as it gets to Black Friday here, no big sales events on the Friday anyway. There will likely be retailers leveraging off of the publicity though, so could be a few sales around none-the-less.

Yes. Some paves here do a black Friday sale. It tends to just be a couple of online computer retailers and that is it though.

Many of those which do do Black Friday seem to do it early anyway. E.g. this year PBtech, Playtech seem to planning it tomorrow. I used to laugh, but thinking more, it's perhaps not surprising. They lock in buyers well before the US deals (Black Friday in NZ on the same day as US would of of course be earlier, but it's perhaps still too close).

BTW, IMO the 2TB portable at WHS wasn't too bad at $139 (at least better than normal prices at other NZ stores, unlike some other deals) although nothing amazing (it was at Noel Leeming a few days later for the same price). I'm sure US prices are a fair amount less probably even after shipping but then you need to consider warranty etc.

A number of Click Monday deals have been made available early, nothing spectacular, but just in case anyone was interested.
