Independent Financial and Property Pty Ltd

My wife and I have been courted by Independent Financial and Property Pty Ltd based in Brisbane / Gold Coast. As rank new comers to property investment, we are wondering if anyone has dealt with them or have any information they can share.
All comments are welcomed.
Cheers
 
Havent dealt with them, so can't comment on them

But what is their product/service? And can that be done/obtained without their assistance for cheaper or free?
 
Just did a quick sweep of the website (not going to link to it) and it stinks!

Also, it's a wee bit suss that the first thread from a new poster is asking about a specific spruiker...
 
Interesting

ASIC would take a broker business to the cleaners with "independent" in it - my guess would be even if it were totally fee for service

I haven't heard of them either so won't comment about them.

Did they contact you directly or did you approach them?

Cheers

Hi guys,
Thanks for the replies.
They contacted us and invited us to a seminar.
They are pretty much a one stop shop for property. They have stock around Australia, they have brokers who can organise finance, either inside or outside Super, they people (lawyers ?) to look after the legal and they also have property managers to look after the property.

The "Independent" seems to come from the fact that they only represent the property and the other specialists are Independent.
Cheers

Sounds like everyone in that list is making money off you.. at what point do you make money?
 
I am always nervous about one stop shops. I would look carefully at their Form 27c to see what sort of cut they are getting from the property sale. I would suspect the marketing fee would be high. On the other hand I could be completely wrong as I have never heard of them until now.
 
Looked at their site... what is it that they offer exactly? Sounds like a BA service but it's not stated clearly. How do you use their service? Do you pay them or do they get commissions? "Our Team" doesn't have real people, what's the point of the page again? Most BA worth their salts can refer you to several, really good, independent professionals - so that part is not really unique.

Based on the site alone, I will run miles away. But who knows, maybe they're the victim of cheap web design and copywriting :rolleyes:
 
I am always nervous about one stop shops.

I'm seeing more and more, wherein they offer accounting/financial planning/mortgage broking/legal etc. under the one roof. They don't sell anything other than the services they offer. Nothing like 'oh hey, suss this mate! Our main business is selling properties and we just happen to have everything else here ready to go and you'll magically get the loan!' type stuff. Whether they are good or not depends on the individuals involved.

A lot of the time they appear to be targeted at professionals that are very time poor.

I have no problem if they don't sell property
 
Went to a QLD mobs seminar "WealthBuild Australia", one stop shop, flogging regional properties H&L packages where their development arm has purchased.
They were pushing Whyalla (which after researching on here was a very high price for the area)
They were advertising at good food and wine festivals etc, sign up to win a trip, oh look you've one a prize of some sort but you need to come to our seminar and you don't get your prize til after you listen to us.
