From the President's desk - change of leadership at NZPIF

In October Andrew King resigned as President of the NZ Property Investors Federation (NZPIF) to begin an extended motorcycle tour, with his wife Sarah, through Central and South America. After 26 years of involvement, it is the end of an era for NZPIF. His enthusiasm for property, tenants, landlords and the improving of membership benefits has been exemplary.  Much has been achieved during his tenure for the Federation to become a well-informed voice for property investors in political and media circles.

Best wishes to all rental property owners from Andrew King

By the time you are reading this, my wife, Sarah, and I will be starting a seven-month motorbike journey from San Francisco to Santiago in Chile. This is part one of a plan to motorbike around the Americas. Naturally this means my 26-year involvement (nearly half my life!) with the rental property industry is coming to an end. It has certainly been a journey and I’d like to thank Sarah and the kids for putting up with a lot.

Comparing the cost of different types of rentals

There are people and organisations that would prefer rental properties to be provided by social landlords like the state or Community Housing Providers (CHiP’s). They make the argument that social housing providers charge lower rental prices and offer better security for tenants and the Government appears to agree. But is it true?

Cameron is not your typical Property Investor type. He enjoyed a normal rural childhood in Invercargill; hunting, fishing and playing rugby. My Dad was a freezing worker and Mum was a stay at home Mum, he did not come from a financially abundant mentality, the family lived pay cheque to pay cheque and he did not get much experience in regards to finances in general. At 16 he left school to pursue various jobs in the agricultural industry. At just 24 years of age, he started to renovate and sell properties in South Auckland, working up to buying and selling more than 50 houses in a year. By age 37 he's been involved in more than 300 + transactions across all types of residential property , cosmetic trade renovations , extensive reclad projects , new builds , infill developments , home & income conversions, small subdivisions, minor dwellings & consulted on large land procurement projects. Its needless to say that his team have done most things related to the residential property market and this gives great insights and knowledge in helping others. Come along and hear his inspiring story.
