Monday catch up: 7 things we are keeping an eye on this week

Monday, May 11, 2015

1. Giving credence to the saying, all that glitters is not gold, looks like the happy harmony of the Auckland Housing Accord is no more.  Tova O'Brien gives his take on the Nick and Len relationship.  

2. Perhaps rather unsurprising, the rising prices in the residential market is pushing ma-and-pa investors into the commercial sphere - a market that is usually preserved for the savvy and the elite. 

3. The Auckland housing crisis is gathering so much speed even the Americans are weighing in now.  

4. Property is on everyone's lips these days, which is more a reason why we need educated and informed opinions on how we can solve the Auckland housing crisis.  

5. Sweeping changes to the Building Act are to be expected says Nick Smith.  

6. What bubble?  BNZ says that while there is an affordability issue, we are not in bubble territory at all.  

7. Finally, one for the nay-sayers.  Landlords are insulating rental properties after all!  

What have you been keeping an eye on?  Comment and share below!

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
