Webinar presentation by Alex Rogers    


At first glance, the financial upside of an AirBnB property seems clear: travellers are almost always happy to pay more for short-term holiday accommodation than tenants are for long-term rents and Parliment doesn't seem terribly fussed about regulating holiday home landlords these days. On paper, the profits certainly look incredible with no much downside. But is that really the case in real life? 

Alex Rogers is an Auckland-based property investor and longtime APIA member who had one of the most highly-rated AirBnBs in Auckland CBD from late-2016 to mid-2018, with the property even being featured on TV. Since the introduction of the Auckland Council's accommodation provider targeted rate this year, the property has transitioned back to a traditional rental.

In this presentation, Alex will provide you with an insight into the highs and lows of investing in the short-term market, and will outline what it takes to have a 5-Star AirBnB.

Talking points will cover:

  • Reasons for and against including short-term rentals in your overall investment strategy; 
  • How to start strong and maintain the momentum in the short-term rental market; 
  • An inside look at the day-to-day running of short-term rentals vs residential tenancy; 
  • Common headaches you should be prepared to deal with; 
  • Should AirBnB be a forever plan? If not, how do you know when to stop and finish strong? 
This presentation is suitable for all investors who are curious about AirBnBs and other short-term rental solutions.

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!
