Peter Lewis: Even old dogs can learn new tricks

Long ago, when I first became a landlord, there was no Facebook, no chat groups, and communication between landlords was minimal. Learning to run a residential rental was similar to learning to ride a bicycle – trial and error at the cost of scraped knees and bruised knuckles. I fell down, got fleeced, swindled, and defrauded. But somehow I survived. However, life is ... read more

Peter Lewis: What happened in 2018?

Well, that’s 2018 all wrapped up and stowed away. If I said it was all pretty much dull and boring, you’d know I was lying. Throughout the year property people seemed to have retained their reputation as being down there among used car salesmen, politicians and other assorted undesirable low-lifers among both the general public and the body politic. For some reason it is perfectly Ok... read more

Peter Lewis: Is residential landlording a business?

The genesis of the New Zealand Labour Party lies in the gritty, grimy and muscular blue-collar labourers who worked long grueling hours in the mines, the factories and on the wharves. Armed with quite genuine grievances and fired with visions of a just and fair society they achieved political power by the 1930s and then propelled a number of their own colleagues into Parliament.

Amanda Watt: Removal of negative gearing

I have delayed writing about the removal of the negative gearing, so I could spend more time thinking about what it will mean for property investors. The Government’s issues paper addressing negative gearing came out earlier this year and asked for submissions. Both the NZPIF and APIA made submissions on behalf of members. The proposal outlined in the issues paper is that negative ... read more

John Paynter: Some thoughts on ring-fencing rental losses from the landlord's perspective

There is the widespread belief that residential landlords make large profits with minimal effort and negligible risk. This is quite untrue. My gross income from investments is probably about the same I would get if I was once again employed in the corporate world. I typically work more than a forty hour week but, unlike corporate employment, I get no paid holidays or other benefits. There... 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!
