You are really going to need a team of "experts". In no particular order:
1. Good property savvy accountant - for the tax advice and structure/entity advice.
2. Solicitor for the legal side of the structures and conveyancing on the purchases you make.
3. Mortgage broker for the finance.
4. Possibly a Buyers Agent for the property selection & negotiations,..... unless you are going to do all that yourself.

I'm looking to borrow against the home and buy inside super.
You can do one or the other but not both on the same property.

So you can suck equity out of your PPOR to buy IPs.
You can buy within your SMSF. But these are separate transactions.

Anyone had any good experiences with any person in particular in Sydney that coudl help me?

There are a number of good professionals in all the categories mentioned above, on the forum here, that could assist you.

Thank you for your repsonse. You make it known that there are many different people that have to get involved to make the purchase happen.

But not looking to do it all myself, I'm looking for someone who can assist and ideally a person who has helped someone here before.

Basically I want someone to look at my balance sheet, work out how may properties I can buy to set up me for a more secure future and help me select the right properties and then manage all the other people like solicitors, accountants, finance, property managers etc.

Hi Brad

That level of delegation I believe will soon have you parted of your money and in tears .

Sure, all these things can be outsourced, but best (in my experience) not to a one stop shop.

Rolf, nicely put.

Its such a shame most people will discount your advice, and keep looking for that elusive 'advisor', who will then proceed to fleece them.

Its almost enough to turn me into a liberal voting economic rationalist, but then, the desire to turn your finances over to someone else isnt really rational is it?
 
Once again, I'm sure tehre are people that will try fleece your money. At teh same time I'm sure there are people that are ethical and will do teh right thing by you as they can see teh importance of doing teh right thing and help you buy many properties.

Always take advice from people that specialise in their areas and form people that have a track record of performance!! Obviously do your homeowrk first and that why I am asking if anyone here has dealt with anyone exceptional.

I work 60 hour weeks and and any spare time I spend with my family, I need help and I don't want to get caught in the trap of buying in my backyard just cause it easy and thats all I know.

Once again, appreciate your repsonses but that's not what I'm after.

Cheers,
 
Brad,
You will find a company that is a one stop shop, however for them to have everything in the one place involves a great deal of cost. Usually this cost is recouped from 'busy' people in the form of undisclosed commissions, inflated fees and charges etc.

Lots of people work long hours, I congratulate you on making the effort to change something so you wont be having to work long hours into and after retirement. Do a little bit of research. You have come this far.

Depending on the amount of time you want to spend monitoring your investments, you may be better salary sacrificing into an industry super fund than setting up a self managed super. Even if you found a one stop shop, they would still need some of your time vetting structures, vetting lenders, and properties etc. Just the 'signing' time, without any of the explanations of PDS's loan documents, property docs etc might be too much for your busy schedule.

A middle ground might be finding a mortgage broker and a buyers advocate, and buying an investment property outside of super. Depending on your age and income levels, this could work out much better financially, and strategically. Just spend a weeny bit of time doing some research first. At least you will get a feel for what you dont want, when you get in front of a professional.
 
Hi Brad, where in Sydney are you?

You could try Nathan Birch http://binvested.com.au/forums/

You can sit down with him and he will outline a plan for you (cost? few hundred dollars). He also has a buyers agency and a team of experts.

Or you could try Right Property Group http://www.rightpropertygroup.com.au/homepage

They will sit down with you and map out a blueprint (free). They have meetings at Parramatta fortnightly ($10) and you gain a lot of info and opportunities to network there. They also have a buyers agency.

You don't need to spend thousands in order to get help.

Nathan and Right Property Group have both helped me make great gains in the last few years.

What a shame you are discounting such sound advice from very experienced property investors who are offering great advice - the biggest learning for me has been to listen to more experienced investors and notice what sets successful wealthy investors apart from people who try then fail with investments long term
 
Proportunity is absolutely right - you can enlist specialist companies who will charge you money to use their guidance in developing a strategy; or you can instead start to focus on building a core team around you of the stakeholders you'll engage with as you step into your property investment shoes.

It's important to remember that property investment is equally about having good relationships, as it is having sound advice given, and thorough research/due diligence undertaken by your own accord.

Even real estate agents themselves, who I know can frustrate many, can be of great help in giving you local information specific to their suburb patch. Sure, buyer's agents can do this but I find that buyers agents can be a 'jack of all suburbs, master of none'; so once they've helped you identify a cluster of target suburbs, you should then engage with local agents, even if you end up buying through a buyers' agent anyway.

Cheers

I'd strongly suggest hunting down a decent accountant. A good one will pay for him or herself, and then some, through helping structure your finances in a tax friendly manner.

Similarly, a good solicitor is a must for any commercial venture. They're not cheap, but from bitter personal experience I can tell you that the alternative is more expensive.

I'm sure that you could get a bunch of recommendations off Somersoft for the above, and then pick one from there. They will be more knowledgeable than someone in a one-stop shop, and there'll be less chance of a conflict of interest. Probably cheaper too, by the sounds of some of the comments. :)

If nothing else, go and have a chat to Propertunity. See what he offers, what he charges, and decide if that might be of use.
