Ryan Smuts: Making sense of the RBNZ Nov 2019 FSR

The RBNZ publishes its Financial Stability Report every May and November outlining the key areas of interest relating to the NZ economy, with a snapshot of where things sit today and things to be aware of moving forward. As property investors, we operate in a market which is strongly influenced by the financial system, due to the need for capital and the benefit of leverage when it co... read more

Is Auckland Homeownership The Impossible Dream?

A month into the new banking era of mortgage lending caps, I am already hearing anecdotal tales of quieter open homes, vacated auction rooms, and buyer frustrations. Whereas previously the housing market rivalled that of supermarket frenzies witnessed every 24th of December, now there is an eerily silent scene awaiting vendors and agents. I am confident that in the coming weeks there will ... read more

No Silver Bullet: LVR Restrictions and the Role of the Reserve Bank in the Auckland Housing Crisis

In his address to the Property Council Of New Zealand yesterday, Deputy Reserve Bank Governor Grant Spencer gave a broad-view digest into the current housing supply pressure faced by New Zealanders, in particular, Aucklanders and Cantabrians. The Reserve Bank is under no disillusionment that LVR Restrictions are the silver bullet to the current market challenges, nor had it ever expected... read more

LVR Restrictions: The Reserve Bank Takes Action

The incessant hum of LVR restrictions and other macro-prudential tools to curtail the seemingly out-of-control Auckland housing market by the Wheeler led RBNZ is crescendoing into a full-blown chorus set to underscore lending ethos in the low equity market. From 1st October onwards, banks are required to have no more than 10% of mortgage lending flows at LVRs of more than 80%. Translation - i... read more

A Message For First Home Buyers - Warning. Reality Check Ahead.

I scratch my head every time a first-home buyer gets into the media and paints her position as nothing more than a Dickensian victim; marginalised by society and grasping at straws. Apparently, if newspapers and televisions are to be believed, half a million dollars will not get anyone a single house in Auckland. Not one jot. Just last week, I sat through a Barfoot auction in the CBD and... read more

If there's somethin' strange in your neighbourhood Who ya gonna call? Price-Buster If it's somethin' weird and it won't look good Who ya gonna call? Price-Buster Are you singing along? Bear with us, we are getting somewhere with this analogy.

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!
