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

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

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

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.

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!
