Kelvin Davidson: Property seems to be off politicians’ radars

  The 2020 General Election is fast approaching and even in normal years elections tend to create some uncertainty in the economy and the property market, with investors often finding themselves staring down the barrel of some kind of new tax or regulatory change. Needless to say, this parliamentary term has seen plenty of these (e.g. extra insulation standards, tenancy law refor... read more

You are about to be robbed. Put a stop to it.

After failing to pass The Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill through the standard legislative process, Hon Chris Hipkins, Leader of the House, made the extraordinary announcement last week that he would move to pass this bill into law under urgency on Tuesday 4th August just before the 52nd Parliament dissolves.  This is a widely unpopular bill. 82% of New Zealanders opposes it... read more

Ed McKnight: You can't just buy and hope

Some property commentators (and investors) look at the data the Real Estate Institute release and proclaim that it doesn’t matter where you buy … properties go up roughly the same amount no matter what the region. One economist released a fantastic piece of analysis that showed over the last 28 years, Gisborne house prices went up at the same rate as Auckland h... read more

Ryan Smuts: 4 things to watch out for when working with 2nd-tier lenders

Second-tier/non-bank lending is not for the faint-hearted. Rules differ widely from traditional property financing. Still, with the banks taking a tough stance on property lending these days, it pays to open up your mind to second-tier lenders to get yourself moving forward.  I have been asked to share some not-so-obvious tips with first-time borrowers in the second-tier market:&nbs... 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!
