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

Tips on collecting and handling your tenant's personal information

Landlords should not be at ease in light of recent reports characterising the Auckland rental market as being under significant demand pressure. Your applicant base expanding does not make it easier for you to find your next tenant. In fact, it should mean quite the opposite. Now is as good a time as any for all landlords and letting agents to review your vetting process an... read more

Get ready for interest rate hikes

With interest rates having remained suppressed for as long as they have, chances are many investors are not entirely prepared for the coming rate rises. And rise they will. There is nothing sinister or extraordinary happening. The same economic entropy that has been pushing the rates down for so long is also responsible for nudging them upwards in recent months. And it is ha... read more

Stop it! 17 bad habits to ditch in 2017

While we are resolutely not fans of New Year's resolutions (see what I've done there 😉) we have to concede that January is the month of reflection and reset for a greater future. So what better time to take inventory of all the bad habits that have been holding you back from success? Make a commitment to yourself to eliminate one bad habit at a time, and I guarantee you wil... read more

How to prosper in 2017: 17 tips to become a better property investor

Fun fact, the month of January is named after the Roman god Janus. Janus had two faces - one looking backward, and the other looking forward. The ancient Romans imagined that on the 31st of December each year, Janus looked simultaneously backward to the year that was, and forward to the year that would be. And thus became the tradition of the new year's resolution when every Januar... read more

Sarina Gibbon: Evidence vs Eminence: Are you impressed or just infatuated?

Get comfortable, because I have a story to tell… I recently found myself taking in a talk on investment and how to be good at it. That, in itself, is ordinary enough. My role here at APIA takes me to these sessions from time to time and from there I get inspirations for upcoming contents, speakers, and resources. You will often find me, sitting in the audience, frantically... read more

How to choose the right investment strategy for you?

When it comes to property, one size certainly doesn't fit all. And it is precisely for this reason that property has such populist appeal. Come at it from any angle by any means and you will have a good chance at building meaningful wealth with it. But the overabundance of information flooding Google on different investment strategies makes it near impossible for newbies to id... read more

What The Block doesn’t tell you about renovating - Part 2

Renovation shows. Who doesn't love them? Arm a bunch of DIY enthusiasts with the latest power tools and design aesthetics, throw in some well-timed on-camera meltdowns and we have ourselves a winning formula for happily-ever-after - home edition. Entertaining as they are, these shows do have the tendency to hoodwink would-be renovators into underestimating the seriousness of a home... read more

What The Block doesn’t tell you about renovating - Part 1

DIY, it is in our DNA. Trust Mitre10 to encapsulate the Kiwi spirit in six short words. True, we love a bit of DIY. Home improvement is invariably a national pastime which makes shows like The Block so popular. The appeal is simple, a couple of camera-ready youngsters chanced upon a pile of bricks, et violà! Ten episodes later, we have ourselves a Disney castle. Who doesn’t love... 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. 

Stella Shao

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!
