The NZ Herald has done a search of public registers, to find out what assets are owned by MPs.
The house values are always interesting. I’ll summarise below the top few and bottom few:
Under $200,000 in property
Parekura Horomia $114,000 for two houses in Gisborne plus land in Wairoa!
Nanaia Mahuta $126,000 for a property in Waikato
Darren Hughes $141,000 for a house in Howowhenua
Dave Heroera $160,000 for a house in Manukau
Keith Locke $193,000 for a house in Auckland
Over $1,000,000 in property

Wayne Mapp $1,035,000 for houses in North Shore and Wellington

Shane Ardern $3,125,000 for two farms in South Taranaki

No ACT MPs in the over $1,000,000 list. They must be better at hiding their assets 🙂
UPDATE: That is no ACT MPs except Deputy Leader Muriel Newman. Missed noticing her.
