In chapter 4 of Jan's new book, More Wealth from Residential Property, the role of financial advisors is covered. "...most financial advisors are not trained in the area of property investment. The Diploma of Financial Planning (DFP) tertiary level course provided by the Financial Planning Association (FPA) for advisors wishing to attain the highest level, titled Certified Financial Planner, does not include the study of investment in property."
Jan suggests seeking advice from financiers/ mortgage brokers, real estate agents and other property investors (at this site!!!)
Why not invite some of the banks and smaller lenders to advise you in your own home! Mortgage brokers are also an invaluable source of information as they teach and learn from property investors daily.
Before purchasing my first IP, whenever I needed financial advice, help or reassurance, I would visit this forum and my very own "financial advisors" would answer my questions.
Thanks to all the forum members (financial advisors) who have helped and are helping me to become a successful property investor!
Good Luck Mannie,
