Kelvin Davidson: What lies ahead for property in the rest of 2020?

It’s obviously been an unprecedented year for the economy and property market so far in 2020, but it’s at least been reassuring that the number of appraisals generated by real estate agents, for-sale and for-rent listings, valuations ordered by banks, mortgage lending flows, and agreed sales activity have all rebounded since we left alert level four lockdown in late April. What’s ... read more

Kelvin Davidson: Which property types provide the best rental yields?

In the coming months, there are likely to be some ‘bargains’ on offer for property investors, although a slowdown in value growth may well mean more emphasis on a property’s rental yield. On that point, three-bedroom houses tend to have better yields than four-bedroom, while apartments tend to yield more than houses. Of course, there are other factors to consider – and the knock to th... read more

How to set rent?

Setting your rent can be a bit of a Goldilocks Paradox: charge too much, you turn off inquiries; charge too little, you compromise the performance of your property. The right amount of rent will not only help you attract the right types of tenants, it also ensures the continued success of your rental portfolio. We asked five APIA investors to share their rent strategies and elab... read more

Nick Goodall: Impact of the 2017 Election on Auckland’s property market

As the year draws to a close, we’ve got a good understanding on likely changes to the property market and certainly which buyer groups are under the new Government’s property spotlight. In short, property speculators and foreign buyers are the focus. The Government has been clever in using the Overseas Investment Act to restrict foreign citizens buying existing property, but there’s... read more

Is banning foreign buyers the answer to our housing crisis?

Per its election promise, Labour is pushing ahead with plans to ban foreign buyers from buying existing residential properties in an effort to calm the housing market to benefit first home buyers. By all indications, the government is working on legislative changes with the expectation that by the end of this year non-citizens and non-residents will not be able to purchase exis... 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!
