NO 1…. DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE

This month we have seen a rise in clients actually picking up the phone & doing their due diligence, when buying off the plan House & Land Packages!  Good Job guys, I’m very impressed.

With many investment consultants selling house & land packages to their often “New Clients” for tax depreciation purposes, it is imperative buyers do some investigation for themselves. So who do you turn to? Continue reading Investment House & Land Packages

Rental Demand Bundaberg

Investors – I refer to the article written in our local Newsmail recently…

Got to love how the media takes 10% of reality to create a story.

media lying

Two things to remember when you read articles like this;

  1. They have interviewed one local agent only.
  2. The REIQ the Newsmail’s only other source, is not an actual legal governing body, they are a marketing institution for agents who want to pay for the forms they provide- that’s it.  They may wrap themselves in a image of authority, but they are nothing more then a business who makes money off real estate agents!

Rental Demand Reality- ANYTHING IN BUNDABERG ITSELF UNDER $380.00 per week RENT, walks out the door, as in can’t get enough houses compared to tenant demand – each surrounding beach area is viewed differently by tenants, so check with a number of agents when researching a coastal area to buy an investment property!

creative

I’m speaking to agents now….THROW the training manuals in the bin & get out in the real world!  Who invented this stuff.  The world is moving so fast, these manuals CAN NOT & DO NOT keep up with the reality in selling & current markets.  They are a guideline only!  Try something new. HELP your clients achieve what they need by thinking differently.  STOP selling auction methods in markets where auctions don’t thrive in, meaning they are not in favour of your vendor only the buyer.  Stop jamming vendor paid advertising down your clients throat as the first option, because that’s the only method you understand & have been taught.  Each sale needs to be individually assessed.

We are in a buyers market! Creative real estate comes into play in a buyers market, because YOU need to come up with something unique now to help your clients sell at a price they will be happy with.  In a market flooded with sellers that NEED to sell and savvy buyers who have researched the market well,  who have a clear and defined idea of what it is they want to buy, how are you going to put your vendors interests first?
