Ryan Smuts: I own a Kiwibuild, how do I make a start at investing in property?

If you’ve bought yourself a Kiwibuild property you may find yourself in a position where you’re unable to get additional lending on the property, or rent it out for a certain period of time (often between 2-3 years depending on the development & agreements signed). While things certainly seem rather restrictive, in reality you’ve just bought yourself ample t... read more

Debbie Roberts: You totally don't need a 6-figure income to invest in property

In the 10 years we have been helping Kiwis get ahead financially by investing in property, one thing that has become abundantly clear is that there is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to purchasing an investment property. You might be surprised that many people launch into property investment without even a basic understanding about rental returns, return on deposit,... read more

How to build your B&H dream team

It is often said that real wealth with property comes with time. You are more likely to succeed if you take the long-term approach to accumulate both cash flow and capital gain over time. Which is why it is so important for any investor to build a strong investment team, not just for now, but for the long term. The goal here is for all the elements of your team to come together lik... read more

A lot of times I find people asking at APIA meetings Where is the next Auckland hotspot? But what if somewhere that was flagged, quite legitimately at first, as giving investors good capital growth and yiel... read more

Property Starter Tips Inspired By Madonna

Phone convo of the day: Enquirer in his 50s panicking about having no financial safety-net. He feels that he is not clever, learned, informed, brave enough to invest. Here we are thinking, ... and Madonna went to Catholic school, what is your point? We are going to keep saying this until your ears fall off, "You are entitled to the financial future you deserve." And again, "You are ... read more

2013 Resolution #2: Get an investment plan and stick to it

... just because we are deeply OCD and plans have historically calibrated our existence. In doing so, we hope to live in the now and re-learn the imperial power of adapting ourselves to different stages of the property cycle. The investment landscape today is a far-cry from what it was back in 2011 when prices were low and tenants were scarce. For over 12 months commentators have been ... read more

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!
