March issue - available now

Every issue of the NZ Property Investor magazine will continue to bring you all the news, tips and statistics you need to keep your property investments humming in 2008.

Monday, March 3rd 2008, 12:00AM

by The Landlord

Our cover story this month delves into the Blue Chip saga and sheds light on what investors didn't see. We also look at what it means for the property industry and the lessons to be learned for investors.

This issue features part three of our Investing 101 series, designed to help readers become property investors, with a practical guide to residential property investment. Part three asks the question, 'What sort of investor do you want to be?', and looks at the importance of setting goals and strategies to ensure you profit from your investing.

We profile the successful property investor with the modern-day 'Midas touch' - Peter O'Keeffe, and ask him to share his advice when turning knowledge into gold. O'Keeffe is a great example of how forward planning and careful number-crunching actually works. Keep the faith, your dreams are achievable!

We look at how to increase cash flow through renovation - how a little cosmetic TLC to an investment property can add value and boost income.

We also acknowledge the reality of renovation, and how it can often wreak havoc on your relationships. We give some helpful hints on how to cope with situations that arise in stressful times.
