It was one of those shows that is entertaining on the telly but an absolute nightmare in real life. It goes without saying that Breaking Bad has hit a raw nerve in the landlord community.

3 things you need start doing right now to make your life easier

If you think being a landlord is more hassle than it is worth then I challenge you to think again. The life of a landlord does not need to be a drag. True, there are always extra obligations and risks you take on when you become a property investor. But then the same thing could be said of all business endeavours. By being clever with your time and more selective with (superfluous) tasks,... read more

Key Money: A Cautionary Tale

I feel like we spend a lot of time talking about running our properties like a business rather than a charity and getting reimbursed for our costs, that we risk rousing our inner-Ebenezer who has nothing better to do than to claw back every single pitiful cent that is rightfully ours. Not to say I am not a subscriber to this particular school of thought. I am a big fan of wealth accumul... 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!
