Event description



What can you really believe in the media and where are the real opportunities now?

You are warmly invited to our pre-spring Seminar on August 23rd.

Rich Harvey, CEO of propertybuyer and the President of the Real Estate Buyers Agent Association of Australia (REBAA) and Terry Ryder of Hotspotting, will discuss the difficulties consumers have in accessing quality information to discover what's really going on in the market. Terry and Rich will illustrate how unreliable most of the data that's published in mainstream media is, and talk about how you can access better information and make better decisions.

When you pick up the paper or read an online blog it is so easy to become confused as to what is really happening in the property market. The headline one day is saying the market is plummeting, while the next day an article points to continue price rises – in the same area!

Even the experts disagree and provide widely divergent growth predications. Who do you trust and how can you make sense of the real situation?

Here’s the most common frustrations we hear from home buyers and investors daily:

  • “The agent won’t tell me the price guide – he just said make an offer”

  • Undisclosed prices on recently sold property – how can you find out?

  • “How can I find real time data”

  • Misleading median prices – “The median says $1.2m but you can’t buy a dog house for that!”

  • “Does the property clock really work? Is it stuck on 12 o’clock?”

  • Which statistics are the most important and what do they really mean?

In this live seminar, Rich and Terry will share their collective wisdom and insights and help you understand the real drivers of the property market. With years of experience and actual research they will uncover some gems and show you how to find truth about real estate.

We also have a Clint Ducat, Managing Director Investor Success Network as our special finance specialist who will talk about the latest lending changes and how they affect you.

  • Should you pay interest only or P&I to avoid higher interest charges?

  • Which lenders are the most competitive?

  • What is the outlook of interest rates? Fast or slow rises?

  • How to plan for your future lending

Topics covered at this special event include:

  • Which statistics are the most vital and why

  • What are the real drivers of the property market

  • How to avoid the media spin

  • Interpreting “Agent speak”

  • Which data sources you can trust and which to avoid

  • Negotiating with agents – how can you find out if other offers are real?

  • What to research and how to conduct useful due diligence

  • How to uncover real estate gems

  • Learn the critical difference between “search” and “research”

  • Discover some “Hots spots” and “Not spots”
