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

Ryan Smuts: What investors need to know about the recent OCR cut

The OCR has been cut recently by 0.5% - a lot higher than many economists were initially expecting. What might this mean for the borrower? Over the last fortnight, we at the Kris Pedersen Mortgages team have seen some key effects come into play: across the market floating rates have dropped and in many cases, as much as 0.5%.

OCR increase - a sign of things to come?

Interest is without a doubt the biggest expense for most, if not all, property investors. A movement, however slight, in the OCR can have real consequences for property investors. It is perhaps unsurprising then that the latest increase in OCR announced by the Reserve Bank once again propels interest rates into the national psyche. Still, yesterday's Monetary Policy State... 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!
