    Hi all,

    We thought we'd let you know about the exciting workshops that we are doing around the country this May. You will be able to hear from two of Australia's foremost Property Mentors - Simon Buckingham and Brendan Kelly - along with Australia's Leading Independent Property Market Analyst - John Lindeman.

    Whether you are new to property or well on your investing journey you will learn how to use smart property investing strategies in today's market, discover how professional investors use leading-edge breakthrough science (not speculation or 'gut feel') to pick the best areas for growth before other investors, and how they identify the best property deals - so that you too can 'Crack the Property Code'.

    Exclusively at the workshop, leading market analyst John Lindeman will reveal 3 suburbs in your state that are about to BOOM - and that most investors don't know about yet!

    Simply click here for full details, and come along for an incredible day learning profitable and actionable strategies for today's property market

    This is a free event with absolutely no selling property, however during the day you will hear about the educational and property mentoring services that we provide.

    Our guarantee is that you'll walk away from the workshop with practical strategies, techniques and tips that you can go out and actually apply in the property market right now to dramatically boost your property investing success!

    If you could identify good deals or areas, why wouldnt you do that for a living instead of making a living telling others about it?

    We do allow people to post about free or cheap events which may be of use to forumites.

    Having said that, the forum owners have not taken advantage of that themselves.

    This thread has provided an education in it's own right and is unlikely to be of much use to the OP.

    The OP has posted previously a number of times and has not provided an input to the forum. Sadly that would indicate that he is unlikely to even read these responses.

    Any business (especially if people intensive eg training or 'mentoring') if done properly is hard work and means being on call for much of the day.

    Maybe you can palm some of it off if you hire employees.

    But this has other burdens and they may not be as knowledgeable/passionate as you are.

    Then there's more paperwork, responsibility etc.

    Except for the absence of sick pay and a regular salary etc, how is all this different from a regular job?

    And what was it one was preaching again?

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry we haven't responded until now. We have been busy delivering our workshops around the country (which have received great feedback) and Tony who made the original post is having a few technical issues, so I'm posting this reply on his behalf.

    We can understand the natural cynicism with respect to free events as there are plenty of so called 'educators' out there with a vested interest in selling properties, or who lack a real understanding of how the market works.

    Yes - there certainly are many 'spruikers' and 'scammers' masquerading as educators, and it's a constant frustration for us when we come across such people, as they undermine the good information and education that is available from those of us who actually stand on integrity.

    For this reason we support and are members of the Property Investment Professionals Association of Australia (PIPA), and subscribe to a Code of Ethics as a member of the Association. You can find out more about PIPA at www.pipa.asn.au


    We're active investors and we use the same that information in our own investing that we teach in our workshops and programs. For instance, we wouldn't select a location to invest in oursleves without having personally applied the research techniques we discuss in the workshop.

    We're often surprised by the assumption that people who have achieved success in their field would be disinterested in helping others achieve similar success. Success doesn't have to breed selfishness.

    Our investing doesn't take up all of our time, and we can't buy every good deal on the market. So rather than selfishly keeping all this good stuff to ourselves, we've decided to put some of our time into sharing the information with other people and hope they can use it to make better investing decisions.

    As such, we give a lot of great, practical information away for free through our workshops and through various free investing resources that we make available through our newsletters and other mediums. For those seeking more in-depth education and suport than we can offer in a 1-day workshop, we've also built various educational products, information resources and our 1-on-1 mentoring program. Our investing has given us the time and funds to put into these endeavours.

    Is it not a good thing that there are actually some experienced active investors out there who care enough about seeing others succeed, that they are actually willing to put time and energy into educating other investors? Otherwise we'd all be stuck with 'trial and error', or trying to learn this stuff from a book (which frankly doesn't work).


    If you want a greater insight into the accuracy of John Lindeman's past predictions on the property market, just pick up a copy of Australian Property Investor magazine, where John has been writing the monthly column on property market research for the last 3 years.

    John was the ONLY analyst amongst all those who contributed picks for 'hot spots' in API magazine's 2012 'Hot 100' Suburbs issue to have every single one of his suburb picks actually go up in value, including picking the suburb and submarket that achieved the highest growth amongst those 100 suburbs (being Highgate units at over 40% median price growth).

    You can find out more about John and his property market analysis at www.understandproperty.com.au

    What you need to understand about the science that is being used by John to make these forecasts is that it is quite new - so much so that most investors and market commentators don't even know it exists. It's based on years of study on the dynamics of the property market, leading to the development of accurate short-run forecasting techniques that don't rely on speculation or anecdotal evidence.

    The team at Results Mentoring has been working with John over the past 3 years on ways of making these new advances in property market analysis more accessible to investors, and we've been demonstrating some of the techniques at our workshops.


    Actually guys, as a team we do post from time to time under our different individual names. For instance, I recently posted on the topics of predicting the property market, 'timing' the market, 'land banking' and more, on the thread here:

    FWIW I can say that I've worked with (been a client of) Simon and the team at RESULTS in the past and would happily vouch for their inetgrity as a group and personally.

    There's always a lot of good information content at their FREE workshops and yes, it's used to promote their services, but it's always a soft sell and you get real value.

    Cheers,

    Dwight

    I went to one of the full day presentations delivered buy john and simon.... mainly to hold my brothers hand and get him excited about property investing! I don't know about soft sell!!!!! lol One thing i found interesting was johns analysis of suburbs set for price increase based on Medium sales price and house volumes, not really rocket science though. The suburbs mentioned to boom where
    1 Agussta
    2 Kalgoolie
    3 mandurah this was around August last year ( they where saying there could be up to 20% price increases before Christmas, with people madly scribbling down these places i was cringing)
    This was in the last hour of the day which was pretty disappointing. then there was the had sell simon puts on which was more uncomfortable than anything.
    Like others have said "those who cant do, teach"
    Sorry if it sounds harsh but this is my honest opinion, I understand people need to make money and are trying to sell a product but don't push the whole "Free property information seminar" line please because thats not what you are providing!

    Let's look at Augusta & Kalgoorlie. No doubt some have done well in them, but do they stack up today?

    Augusta: 40km south of Margaret River & 320km south of Perth. Long way from nearest cities (bunbury & busselton). Good for a quiet life if you don't mind the winter cold. Town population maybe 2000? So limited trades, employment & services. Dependent on tourism.

    Kalgoorlie: Historically high rental yields but high vacancy has required landlords to drop rent greatly. Remote and high management & trades costs. More diverse and bigger than most mining areas but caution still required.

    Neither seem inspiring picks.
