Presentation by Kris Pedersen and Ryan Smuts, Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance      


Existing equity is a way to fund rental investments. With the last few years being so generous to Auckland homeowners, it stands to reason that many investors would be thinking about putting that equity to good use. Before you do that, however, you should have a good understanding of the implications, risks and benefits of using the equity of your home to fund a purchase. 

Dial into this webinar to hear experienced mortgage advisors and property investors, Kris Pedersen and Ryan Smuts, talk about the ins and outs of using your home to fund your next rental purchase. 

Talking points
  • How it would work - the actual mechanics of buying an investment property using the equity of your home; 
  • Benefits vs drawbacks - overview of the risks and rewards of this particular strategy at this point of the market; 
  • Cash-flow forecast - how would your cash-flow likely track in the short, medium and long term; 
  • Worst case scenario - what do you stand to lose if things take a bad turn.

Kris Pedersen is an experienced investor, broker and trusted industry speaker on matters concerning property strategy and financing. He is the owner-director of Kris Pedersen Mortgages & Insurance, a regular content contributor for the APIA and a passionate industry advocate. 

Don't let his youthfulness fool you. On top of being an award-winning mortgage broker, Ryan is also a passionate property investor and respected speaker. Ryan is no stranger to APIA members having given several financial presentations that are the most watched on APIA TV. He is known for giving solid no-frill presentations that give investors a coalface feel of where the market is at.

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!
