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

Peter Lewis: What happened in 2018?

Well, that’s 2018 all wrapped up and stowed away. If I said it was all pretty much dull and boring, you’d know I was lying. Throughout the year property people seemed to have retained their reputation as being down there among used car salesmen, politicians and other assorted undesirable low-lifers among both the general public and the body politic. For some reason it is perfectly Ok... read more

Peter Lewis: DTI is but a band-aid solution to the bigger housing crisis

Reserve bank Governor Graham Wheeler has been working for some time to reduce the risk that he sees in the New Zealand banking system, mainly centred on house price inflation and low dairy product returns. Now that the milk market has turned up again, property prices and the related mortgage lending seem to be his main target. He has already attempted to restrain the demand for h... read more

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

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 e... read more

Is Auckland Homeownership The Impossible Dream?

A month into the new banking era of mortgage lending caps, I am already hearing anecdotal tales of quieter open homes, vacated auction rooms, and buyer frustrations. Whereas previously the housing market rivalled that of supermarket frenzies witnessed every 24th of December, now there is an eerily silent scene awaiting vendors and agents. I am confident that in the coming weeks there will ... read more

No Silver Bullet: LVR Restrictions and the Role of the Reserve Bank in the Auckland Housing Crisis

In his address to the Property Council Of New Zealand yesterday, Deputy Reserve Bank Governor Grant Spencer gave a broad-view digest into the current housing supply pressure faced by New Zealanders, in particular, Aucklanders and Cantabrians. The Reserve Bank is under no disillusionment that LVR Restrictions are the silver bullet to the current market challenges, nor had it ever expected... read more

Young Investors Alert: How To Go On Your OE And Continue To Invest In Property

By Karen Phelps Your OE or pursuing your property investing? It’s a hard choice but fortunately one you don’t have to make. It is possible to invest in property while doing your OE. Could you picture yourself sunbathing on a beach in the Caribbean while investing in property? Or perhaps partying with other backpackers in Rio knowing you can return home and buy another house? I... read more

A Message For First Home Buyers - Warning. Reality Check Ahead.

I scratch my head every time a first-home buyer gets into the media and paints her position as nothing more than a Dickensian victim; marginalised by society and grasping at straws. Apparently, if newspapers and televisions are to be believed, half a million dollars will not get anyone a single house in Auckland. Not one jot. Just last week, I sat through a Barfoot auction in the CBD and... 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!
