August 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, August 4th 2008, 6:00AM

by The Landlord

Property is dropping in value and some investors are finding themselves in a tight spot. But every downturn has a sliver lining and our August issue is packed full of advice on how to Master this market.

Evidence from Hamilton, where we did an in-depth study this month, shows buyers believe the bargains have arrived. But those in trouble right now should best heed the advice of experts instead of putting their heads in the sand.

Beware, however, downturns never last for the length of time predicted by economists and other experts. They have a life of their own.

If you need cheering up at all, the profile of Tirau investor Henry Clothier is a right cracking read. The man has more or less single-handedly turned around the fortunes of the State Highway One town in the Waikato and made many townsfolk wealthy on the back of his passion for commercial property.

Michael Yardney’s column this month looks at four clever ways of using leverage that can help you become a better property investor.

Our new series this month, A day in the life, takes an in-depth look at the roles of professionals who make up property investors’ teams. First up, we find out what your property manager really gets up to.

We have a feature on the psychological traps of investing and look at why investors can sometimes make irrational decisions because of their past experiences. Take our advice and don’t let it happen to you.

Successful investors know clever tricks with mortgages. Our beginners’ feature looks at advanced finance strategies for investors.
