Property Investment Advice?

By justsomeaussie 31 October 2010 23

Hi,

I’m looking to find a company to provide me with independent investment property  advice.

I’d appreciated any personal experiences people have with Canberra companies, or even better negative experiences so I know who to steer clear from.


What’s Your opinion?

My experience with The Investors Club over the past 14 years is that they are a group of like minded individuals helping others to make there way through the investment property maze. My involvement has certainly boosted my meager super to a point where I was able to retire at an age that leaves time to enjoy it!

Given its a business website it seemed appropriate to suggest looking at making better. Hardly having a crack at them.If it was just a post by someone I would have let it go. I made no judgements about the person involved and managed to avoid schoolyard name calling in saying it. Your inability to express an opinion without resorting to dated cliches and desperate attempts at bon mots doesnt give you the credibilty to lecture anyone about how or what they write

Salad dodger.

Ah, point missed. Again.

My final word on this (since surely you should be back in school at 1:29pm) is that if you start to practice what you preach, and tidy your own writing up (i.e. use an apostrophe or three) then it just might help you get that after-school job at McScottish.

Your point wasnt missed, you just didnt make one.There I go with those darn postrifies again..sigh…how will the internet survive?

Its tedious enough seeing you drone on without any concept in this thread. Why would I want to be your boss on the drive through window?

Im done with this anyway you seem to be quite the expert on writing but no idea on reading. Besides it must be hard for you to keep typing with just one hand.

The Investor’s club quite openly state that they take commissions: you are paying them the equivalent of what you would pay to a real estate agent completing your sale. Out of this commission come the fees for buyer’s agents, conveyancing, mortgage brokers and administration of the company.

Contrast that to the service you get from a real estate agent which is … introducing you to the property. You then have to pay conveyancing out of your own pocket. Sure, you might be smart enough to do Queensland conveyancing on your own. More power to you.

You might just want to run the old spell check over that site 🙂 Plus consider what does and doesnt need a capital. Im not perfect either and yes its beside the point, Im being pedantic, who cares etc. All those comments would be true.

Just a personal bug when looking at a business if it cant get basics right I tend to move on

Um, beg pardon? This from someone who wouldn’t know an apostrophe if it jumped up and started having contractions in their face?

Overreact much.Did you see the part where I said Im not perfect? That would include times I type in a hurry and dont check it. You can probably find a bunch of times on here Ive done that. Oops there I go again! Then again Im not using a website to promote my business so my failings as a typist really only affect me and it seems you.

It was a minor point and done with no malice but please feel free to keep climbing that moral high ground you are so keen to get to though 😉

Right. I’m over-reacting. Just because I don’t do smiley faces doesn’t mean….. see it was the use of the word ‘contractions’ that sort of gives it away. I guess I could have added ‘See what I did there?’ but I didn’t really think it needed that much literal translation.

Sorry that you seem to be so possessive. (See what I did there?)

But seriously, think about the occasional apostrophe. Makes you look less like an eighth-grader. Which you could almost get away with if you weren’t beating up someone else for their under-capitalisation. (See what I….)

My typing is pants and I can rarely be bothered going back to fix it so your sad little attempt to be patronising is wasted.By the way WE dont have an eighth grade. Its Year Eight. Try to include less American sitcom stuff when pretending youre using your own witty banter. Oh noes I used different yours and I didnt put in postrophies . Only Underdone (See what I did there?)can save the world!

Yeah, newsflash, brainiac: you were the one who started this by having a crack at someone over their formatting and expression. So tuck yourself up back in that glass house and, I don’t know, get stoned rather than throw them.

Oxygen thief.

The top of the bubble is absolutely the best time to be investing in property.

Snort. Every day, there’s another one born, isn’t there?

The bubble has been slowly deflating for a couple of years now. A few more and we’ll be ready for some more decent rises.

Hurry over to this thread everyone, its an apostrophe fight! Or should that be “it’s an apostrophe” fight. Hell, I’ve just gone from the sidelines to the middle of the battleground.

a glance at the TIC website reveals that it’s involved in property development and mortgage broking – so it is definitely a for-profit venture with an interest in luring people into socking their money into real estate.

Absolutely! TIC is simply a real estate agent in disguise. They get kick-backs (they call it “commission” in their literature) from developers whose property they on-sell.

By and large, the Investors’ Club and other such fora are confirmation traps aimed at unsophisticated investors who think that they can’t lose with property and are suspicious of any other type of investment. In fact, a glance at the TIC website reveals that it’s involved in property development and mortgage broking – so it is definitely a for-profit venture with an interest in luring people into socking their money into real estate. You’d get an honest and more objective viewpoint elsewhere.

I suggest looking at John T. Reed’s website. He is a property commentator who gives a more balanced and realistic view of what’s involved with being a landlord. Try the following:

Go talk to someone who is doing what you want to do and pick their brain. My uncle is a bit of a property mogul so I get my advice from him. So far I have 2…compared to his 17!!!

I agree – do your own research. Look nationally. Check returns in say Derby – WA & Qld mining towns.

If you buy in big cities – check how close it is to public transport always get something close to CBD.

Check out the Investors Club – they have a web site, advise on property investment & are pretty much not for profit.

I have had experience with Dixon Advisory and found them very good – I know they have property investment advisors.

After a quick look at their website I found http://www.dixon.com.au/Services/Property-advice.aspx

They’re originally a Canberra company now with additional offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
