How to get started in property investing?
The best place to start is by attending one of our interactive workshops or just calling the office to book a free appointment either in home or in one of our offices. This will give you a good insight into property and show you how to get started in property investment. At a workshop or appointment, you will learn some strategies that have been tried and tested in the market. You will take away enough knowledge to be able to go out and do it on your own.
Please call us on 1300 148 178 to book in.
Can I do it without using your property investment advice?
Yes. You don’t need us to invest in property, just like you don’t need a mortgage broker to get a loan, however, because just like a mortgage broker we don’t charge you for our services, why wouldn’t you use our expertise? Do you really want to have to spend hours on end researching where are the best locations, who are the best builders, what sort of property is the best for my goals and strategy, which property managers are the best etc? If you could have someone do all that for you at no cost, wouldn’t you use that service?
This is the same reason why the majority of people now use mortgage brokers to get finance. We are the property experts. We have been doing this for so long we can not only save you hundreds of man hours but potentially save you thousands of dollars.

How much money will I need?
The good news is that you don’t necessarily need any cash as such. If you currently have a home with around $100 000 of equity in it and a wage between you and your partner of $70 000 per year, then you should have borrowing capacity to be able to get an investment property.
If you don’t have a home at present or cash then you can joint venture with someone else. Come and see us and we can explain the many different ways of how to get started in property investment.
I am not sure if I will get a loan. Can you help?
Yes. We can check your borrowing capacity for you and give you some tips on how to improve it. Many people wonder why they can’t get a loan when the truth is it is just something very simple that they need to check which they didn’t know about.
I have never invested before. Can someone show me how to get started in property investment?
Yes. Everyone has to start somewhere and we understand that taking that initial step and getting started can be very daunting. We have helped thousands of people invest safely and securely in property. We can give you the right investment property advice also.
I don’t have a team. Can you recommend people to me?
Yes. We have accountants, mortgage brokers, solicitors and property managers that we can recommend to you that we have personally used in the past that we know do a great job. You don’t have to use these people but they may be a good starting point for you.
Are you an investor yourself?
Yes. Not only have I worked in the industry for quite some time, I have a sizable portfolio myself which I try to increase as often as I can.

How do you earn your money?
Either the builders will pay us a commission to use their product if we organise a new build for a client, the vendor of the property may pay us a fee or if the client wants us to find them a development site we will charge the client a fee based on what the client is looking for and value of the property.

I have heard that to own an investment property it can cost less than $100 per week. Is this true?
Yes, this is true.
The key part of building a property portfolio is to not only buy properties that go up in value but also buy properties that will give you maximum cash flow. When we take into account the Rent and Tax Deductions from a property, these cash flows can bring the cost per week down to lower than $100 per week (depending on taxable income)
Attend one of our interactive workshops and I will show you how.
I have no idea what “negative gearing” means or the tax deductions I should be claiming. Can you explain that clearly to me?
Yes. Not only am I an investor myself, I am also a Chartered Accountant and have worked in tax and business services, I have a very good understanding of the tax system and can explain to you clearly what you can claim and how to do it. I can also explain “negative gearing” to you so that you fully understand the term and how it applies.
Where are you recommending I buy an investment property?
The answer to that question is really a moving target. What was good to invest in last year may not be so good this year as that area may have already had a large increase in capital growth or the supply of property may have changed.
Each time we go back into the market to buy, we need to research again to see where we will get the very best chance at capital growth.
I work offshore/ in the country and can’t make it into the office to see you. Is there another way?
Yes there is. If you are time poor or live in a remote location you shouldn’t be penalised. We don’t necessarily have to meet to start working on setting a property investment strategy or showing you how to get started in property investment. We can conduct a phone appointment, find out what you want to achieve through investing then match your goals with a property that is right for you.
