Property investing takes more than passion, you need a good strategy! 

Want to create wealth with property but no idea where to start? Don't worry, our My First Rental Presentation Series is designed to give you the information and confidence you need to embark on your very own property journey.

Many beginner and would-be investors would like to achieve financial freedom with property but find themselves overwhelmed by the market and media mixed messages. Some do not have a honed-in buying strategy and find themselves stumbling from one property deal to another without a particular direction. Some are paralysed by the fear of buying the wrong property that will plague them financially for years to come. Others are intimidated by debt and doubtful about the power of leveraging. 

If you find yourself being held back by one or all of these common fears and hobbled before you even begin investing then this workshop is just for you! 

Come along to find out how to create a buying strategy that will get you closer to your financial goals. This session offers presentations and hands-on demonstration showing you how to: 

  • Set goals and create an action plan for your investments;
  • Research and understand the property market and values; 
  • Create a finance strategy as well as a buying strategy; 
  • Learn to find, analyse, and negotiate good deals; 
  • Spot common mistakes newbie investors make and how to avoid them yourself; 
  • Have your questions answered
Your speakers are Kris Pedersen of Kris Pedersen Mortgages and Insurance and Jonathan Chang of Core Logic NZ. Bring along your Wi-Fi capable tablet or laptop if you would like to follow along with the demonstrations. 

The My First Rental Presentation Series is an APIA initiative that is rolled out in conjunction with our business partners. The presentation series is designed to empower new investors with the tools and confidence you need to make sensible investment decisions in 2018.

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!
