    Whn I go to a property website I want real info.  Where is it? What services are nearby? What is the suburb like? what is the rental potential? Median Prices both sale and rental When built, who by? Rates, Strata fees etc    I dont want a few dozen warm and fuzzy 'wankwords' that dont actually tell me anything about the property!

    So far the only mob that seem to provide this sort of information on line are 'The Investors CLub'  and I have taken my baby steps with them but I am ready to walk by myself

    Come on sellers – wake up and start providing real information – it might actually help you sell the property!

    Do the hard yards, get out there or get a buyers agent – no shortcuts.

    Do your own research. Why would someone selling their house care want to do everything for you.
    One would assume anyone looking at a house in an area would look where the house is (try googlemaps). and if you don't know what the suburb has to offer and the median prices of the suburb you are NOT ready to go it on your own. These are basics. As for when the house was built. By who?? Does it really matter if it's 70's or 80's at the initial stages of your search. I'd say no! Maybe if you arte looking at 2 year old houses.

    No strata fees does annoy me. You do need to know that. Rates? If you want top buy in that area rates between different houses won't vary much.  Ask one person and you're done.

    Once you get some experience you will be able to dicifer the wank words.
    Puting all this info on the add will not get you to ring up. THAT'S the idea. Then they have your number. And they may even care enough to ask you what you are looking for and tell you about something that suits you.

    Sitting on a computer is great to START your Due Diligence, but it is not THE due diligence.
    Man up or stay with TIC.

    Yep that's me. Glad I didn't cause offense. I sometimes go overboard. I met some TIC people at the property show last year and thought I might go to one of their meetings as I find networking very rewarding. But the meetings seem to be geared at beginners and the get togethers seem to be on weekdays in the daytime. I still work so not suitable for me.

    Where are you situated Laury? and where are you looking?  I'm in Sydney.

    Please be careful if you are contemplating dealing with The Investors Club and Kevin Young a.k.a. Kevin Sampy.  I see others have posted warnings also.   

    The following news article explains just one disaster known as the 'Kirribilli Heights' development that no fewer than 12 TIC members were exposed to.

    I trust that my comments have not breached any of the terms of use on this site! I simply want to warn readers to be very careful when dealing with TIC. As others have allured to, they are not a club at all. They are a property market company making huge profits selling property to their so called 'club members'.
