Date: 26-Mar-2019

Capacity: 40 (65% booked) 

Community Board Meeting Room, Birkenhead Library, Nell Fisher Reserve, Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead

6.30 pm to 8.30 pm 


Adding value to recycle equity and grow a property portfolio is a commonly deployed strategy that is especially popular in the DIY driven culture we live in. When understood and deployed correctly, a tremendous amount of value can be added to your portfolio and propel your momentum forward in a way that exceeds, or counteracts, the natural movements of the market. In short, you are manufacturing equity and boosting returns with a specific formula. Now, who doesn't want that? That said, a lack of experience and knowledge could hinder your progress, or worst, collapse your portfolio entirely.

Come along to hear industry insiders and experienced investors unpack the renovation strategy and share tips on how to achieve successful results. 

Talking points
  • A financial/funding roadmap to executing the renovation strategy; 
  • What types of funding are available for renovation and what are the current lending criteria;
  • Common roadblocks that limit/hinder funding and how to avoid them; 
  • The importance of valuation reports, what the banks are looking for; 
  • The financial implication on your overall portfolio when you renovate one property; 
  • Valuation reports - how closely are they scrutinised and what types of reports are accepted from a funding point of view;
  • What are the cardinal rules when it comes to renovating for profit;
  • What are the common reasons for renovation disasters and how to avoid them;
  • How can an investor prioritise his/her renovation budget to maximise the return;
  • What is the average project turn around time in the current market, do you see that time lengthening or shortening in the coming months?
  • Project case studies

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!
