*Members Only* APIA Webinar - How to transition from residential to commercial property investment


Date: 30-Aug-2017

Capacity: 100 (50% booked) 

1-hour webinar starting from 7.00pm
Presentation by Andrew Bruce

From residential property investors, transitioning into a mixed-residential-commercial portfolio does not always happen as smoothly as one may have hoped.  There are elements of commercial property investment that are so specific to the subject that often catch even the most experienced residential investors unawares.  Investor and APIA President Andrew Bruce learnt this lesson first-hand four years ago when he developed his first commercial real estate to hold.  Now, four years later, we ask Andrew to reflect on his personal journey and share some much needed insights with similarly ambitious investors who aspire to eventually purchase commercial properties. 

Specific talking points include: 

  • What are the advantages of investing in commercial properties and the trade-offs for residential investors;
  • What are some of the surprises in store for even the most experienced residential investors when first investing in commercial properties; 
  • What was his financing strategy to fund his way throughout the purchase and development of the site and how he had utilised the equity from his residential portfolio; 
  • How do you create a profitable commercial deal and how is that different from residential properties; 
  • How does Andrew strategise his portfolio as a whole so that his commercial property complements the rest of his portfolio?

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.

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!
