Kelvin Davidson: It’s been an unprecedented year – the swings and roundabouts of 2020

Thinking back to the start of 2020, nobody could have anticipated what was about to playout for the economy or the property market. But after a lot of uncertainty and conjecture about what the future might hold, we’re almost at the end of the year and it’s remarkable to see that house sales and prices are on a strong upswing. Indeed, the number of... read more

Kelvin Davidson: How has COVID affected the property market

COVID-19 hasn’t significantly undermined the property market so far In this fast-moving COVID environment it’s easy to lose track of everything that’s changed since the end of March and how the property market has been impacted. Recall that since March: The Government has launched a huge fiscal support package, including the wage subsidy, which has kept people in jobs and pay... read more

Kelvin Davidson: Property seems to be off politicians’ radars

The 2020 General Election is fast approaching and even in normal years elections tend to create some uncertainty in the economy and the property market, with investors often finding themselves staring down the barrel of some kind of new tax or regulatory change. Needless to say, this parliamentary term has seen plenty of these (e.g. extra insulation standards, tenancy law reform, ri... read more

Kelvin Davidson: What lies ahead for property in the rest of 2020?

It’s obviously been an unprecedented year for the economy and property market so far in 2020, but it’s at least been reassuring that the number of appraisals generated by real estate agents, for-sale and for-rent listings, valuations ordered by banks, mortgage lending flows, and agreed sales activity have all rebounded since we left alert level four lockdown in late April. What’s ... read more

Kelvin Davidson: Which property types provide the best rental yields?

In the coming months, there are likely to be some ‘bargains’ on offer for property investors, although a slowdown in value growth may well mean more emphasis on a property’s rental yield. On that point, three-bedroom houses tend to have better yields than four-bedroom, while apartments tend to yield more than houses. Of course, there are other factors to consider – and the knock to th... read more

Kelvin Davidson: The tax ring-fence is unlikely to cause a sea-change in investor behaviour

From April 1st the tax ring-fence for rental property losses needs to be accounted for by investors. It is currently going through the ‘bill to law’ process, which starts with a select committee and then ends up before Parliament for the final stage. In other words, although it’s not law just yet, it looks pretty likely to pass and once approved will apply to the current tax year (end... read more

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!
