OMG…. I am completely stressed about this Mark Rolton seminar i have just signed up for. After reading these comments I really want my money refunded, I can least afford to lose this amount of money. I see a few here have managed to get a refund, would you be so kind as to advise how you went about it and how I should manage…[Read more]
You have been given great advise from people in the know here so far. Construction cost is around $10k per square for double, or around $7-8k per square for a single storey but that can change dramatically depending on what quality you're after and the type of contract as well. Turnkey would generally be higher cost but lower risk in terms of cost…[Read more]

There is no shortage of real estate agents, most residential agents are just short of skills. What do you expect when you can get your ticket in 3 days or your license in 4 weeks. Most commercial agents have got more than the basics ie they will have a land economics degree, specialise in sales, portfolio/property…[Read more]

Great info. I will PM you for that other forum.I love reading and will hunt down those books you posted.
I have them all on Kindle for iPad(1). The good thing about Kindle is you can have it on your iPhone and PCs as well (no extra charge) and remembers that last page you read on all of them. I hope you pick up a lot of stuff…[Read more]

@EVTo be honest, I've been busy with work and uni and haven't had the chance to look deeper into commercial property at the time being.I did find however that reading commercial property related books to be helpful. Some titles are:The Fundamentals of Listing and Selling Commercial Real Estate – Loren KeimConfessions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur…[Read more]
Hi, Freddy here. Currently doing a property related Uni program. Have been concentrating more on the real estate side of things for around 3 years now after being involved in the money market. I am currently concentrating on the commercial side of property which is part reason for the Uni program.I look forward to discussing more commercial…[Read more]
Just read your other post regarding 'Management Rights' and looks like there is an asset base for you to build on. It sounds like you are very young and doing the right thing asking questions and you probably need to further educate yourself to be able to handle your current situation which I hope you continue to do.If I were you, I would start s…[Read more]
Do you have any assets at all like a house or something? Is there a reason why you're unemployed or do you simply don't want to work?There's plenty you can do with $200k but there's a lot a risk elements to be considered. I'm probably in a similar situation where I was unemployed because I tried a few things that didn't work out but learned a lot…[Read more]

Thanks for your post OceanA.Whereabouts are you again? How is the development business around your area? Are you an architect or have an architectural background?I'm in Melbourne and do see a lot of advertisements for real estate agents. I'm more after people's observations which is exactly what you did. Have you had experiences with valuers? I re…[Read more]
If you love what you do and having fun, who cares! I have a renewed passion for property that's why I'm doing it. I know if I concentrate on the principles, the fundamentals, strategies, etc with risk management techniques chances are I'll get there. Some of the millionaires interviewed in 'The Millionaire Next Door' mentioned that they love what…[Read more]

No comments? I would have thought that there would be somebody able to contribute. I really want to have a bit more insight on what these roles do specially from individuals who have experience and have experienced dealing with them.I would appreciate any info though, any…… good, bad, ugly….
I have a copy of a prospectus of Custodian Land where John is the CEO. Not to sell you a property but to become an investor on their development in Sunbury Victoria. All I can say is they seem to have used or partnered with quality consultants. Just to be clear, I am not associated with or involved in this project. I simply use the prospectus as r…[Read more]

@Zaul.You might also want to think more about your statement. Do you want to retire or become financially independent? Retirement to me is like playing golf, or going to the beach, waiting for money to come and practically don't do much else. Financial independence is simply your financial worries are taken care of and you can choose your own…[Read more]
@Anthony. So what you're saying is the original post should have been 'Looking for possible Joint Venture Opportunities'? That seems to be the implication.Thanks for the info. It makes a lot more sense.
Is there a section here where there's 'forum rules' or 'guidelines'? I've been hanging around forums long enough to know that a post like the original post triggers alarm bells specially if it's the first few posts (no offence meant).I would listen and ask advise from Qlds007 about this type of things if I were you Rayden being a newbie. This is…[Read more]
All part of the learning process. Thanks for sharing.Just thought I'd ask since it's a two storey if the window would be overlooking someone's backyard. There could be further issues if the windows do overlook someone's backyard and one way to avoid it is to design the windows to look straight or upwards.I was in a tour one time provided by the…[Read more]
