Monday catch up: 7 things we are keeping an eye on this week

Monday, May 04, 2015

1. Looks like the IRD will be given more resources to crack down on residential property speculators.    

2. Auckland's housing crisis is by no means a unique phenomenon according to David Roberton.  Much could be learnt from the Canadian experience.

3. Cracks are showing between the central government and the Auckland Council re the city's housing problems.  

4. The Aussies are going to start charging foreigners new taxes in an effort to cool its housing market.  Perhaps a lesson for us Kiwis? 

5. Looks like the surging Auckland prices is pushing prices up elsewhere in the country.  

6. Meth labs are a serious and real problem in New Zealand, especially in rental properties.  If you are buying an ex-rental, you would be silly not to test it first.  

7. Annual building consent now top 25,000 - highest number in 9 years.  Not bad.  Not bad at all.  

What have you been keeping an eye on?  Comment and share below!

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!
