Presentation by Debbie Roberts, Property Apprentice


When it comes to property investing, who doesn't want to pay less to get more in return? The negotiation stage is critical. This is when you stand to make a big chunk of profits by nabbing yourself a great deal. Similarly, this is also when you could make a dastardly mistaken and get stuck with a bad property deal for years to come. That is why honing your negotiation skill is so critically important for any serious property investor.

Talking points
  • Why is negotiation an important skill in this particular market;
  • What is worth negotiating for and which deals should you walk away from; 
  • What do you need to know about a deal before you start negotiating for it; 
  • What are the critical pressure points of a deal and how do you negotiate on them; 
  • How to negotiate to maximise your chance of success;
  • How to act ethically and with integrity without diminishing your opportunities.

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!
