2013 Resolution #3: Embrace Our Inner Maths Geek

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Why do we invest in property? 
We will tell you why,
That is why.

Smack our collective tight ar*s and call us Ebenezer all you want.  We are not ashamed to admit that we are primarily motivated by money.  Specifically we are trading overseas trips and trendy threads for property deposits and a chance of financial stability for ourselves and our families. 

Since we are in it for the money, we have resolved to be more number-savvy this year.  After all didn't mama say, "a penny saved is a penny earned"?  So this year we are going to get our heads around net yield, gross yield, interest rates (and savings) and tax saving tips and all the other sexy formulae that will drive up our investment returns. 

Additionally, we also want to make it easier for our super awesome members (i.e. you) to get their numbers working for them.  So all through 2013 we will be lobbying our sponsors for more assistance and funding to help us develop APIA members only financial tools making your life just a bit easier.  Ambitious but achievable.  Thoughts, suggestions even donations welcomed.  Who is with us?

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!
