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

Peter Lewis: Rent control is not the answer to fairer housing

We sometimes hear advocates for residential tenants claim that rents should be subject to price control. They say that rent controls provide long-term security for renters, and tilt the balance of power away from landlords towards the tenants. This, in their view, makes for a fairer housing market in which households with lower incomes cannot easily be pushed aside by landlords k... read more

Kiwi Houses Too Pricey? Or Has Someone Been Fudging The Maths?

New Zealand Houses Are Overpriced Figures published by The Economist this month suggest that New Zealand house prices are grossly overpriced. Basing its claims on a comparison between local property prices and rental prices, The Economist concluded that Kiwi homes are 66% over valued, second only to Canada (at 77%). Unsurprisingly, this figure has set off a flurry of media commentaries on ... 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!
