    Next weekend, the 17th and 18th Janary, Country House and Land Sales is having a free weekend real estate tour of ten country towns. The advertsement was in today’s SMH. Apparently, it’s obligation-free!! woohoo ;)

    I wanna go- do any sydney people want to go too? Or regional people?

    I have absolutely nothing to do with this company, but I personally think it would be a fun thing to do. And they might feed and house us for a weekend?

    Anyone up for it?

    I saw that advertisement but didn’t cut it out.

    Yeh, I wouldn’t mind being driven around. [:o)]
    However I bet they will be putting on the hard word.
    (Sign or else [}:)]

    I’ve heard stories before that people going on a free trip who won’t sign up are threatened that they will be left behind.

    I am not talking about these people (I wouldn’t know them from a bar of soap, have never ever heard from them).

    That story related to people being taken on a plane trip interstate.

    I think the story you talking about is at gold coast. It was once where I was ask to go to gold coast with free flight, accom…etc all for free to look for ip…I wanna go but end up not going. That was back in 2000.

    Warm Regards

    Hi,

    Just a heads up… to be eligible for the free land you usually have to live in the area for a period of time.

    Cheers,

    Steve McKnight

    Nothing is free! That’s a bit synical isn’t it!

    I would certainly love to know how it was if you do attend. Please keep us posted.

    Cheers

    Dear all,

    Spoke to the chap who is organising the tour this morning. You go to ten towns- first stop wagga- then you stay at parkes- their shout. I asked if one had to give bankcard details etc and the guy said no. He basically said that they make quite a few sales throughout the year from the tours. He said he’s aware of the trips people givew that require bankcard (presumably from the old days of tewo-tired marketing) but that they aren’t into that.

    Seemed like a nice guy. I figure he and his friends have thought up a way to make some business and the bus tour (5-star coach), accommodation, and presumably food is their way to show people their real estate and so the organisers wear the cost.

    The numbers you can phone are:
    0243420085
    0402226685
    0402226659

    They send you out a package of info. Then you come to parramatta at 7am and go on the tour!

    Hi,

    Just spoke to the gentleman on 0402226685, who appeared quite helpful and will send out info.

    Please NOTE the landline number quoted by kay henry is wrong.

    The correct numbers you can phone are:
    0243420855 (and not 0085)
    0402226685
    0402226659

    Pisces- yeah, 7am is hell. But it’s only two days to see 10 towns- need a wakeup call? hehe.

    Leigh,

    I think suggesting people move forward with caution is sensible.

    I think the thread about this group went something like this:

    (A) Anyone know anything about Country House and Land Sales?
    (B) nope

    hehe. I don’t think these folks have a website. Their ads don’t mention one- maybe they’re a bit old-fashioned.

    I reckon the only thing to fear is making a decision that you didn’t mean to make. But the good thing about something like this tour seems to be that if, for example, someone did want to purchase one of the properties they saw… there’s be a heap of other property investors on the tour to discuss it with- check out the numbers etc. What could be safer?

    I was telling my mum and gf about this tour and they were telling me to be safe and careful etc. But I think if one isn’t prepared to buy, then one just needs to keep one’s head.

    And for those who think buying sight unseen is a bad thing, this is one way to check out areas you may not have visited before and know what kind of places they are.

    Leigh, I’ll do a reportback when i get back from it. Really though, why I’m sounding so positive is because I think that if anyone gives me a free weekend to view their properties- with no obligations- they can’t be that bad :o)

    No doubt others might come back from it and slag the organisers off- my gut feeling is I won’t be- the properties might not be suitable for my purposes- but one can’t complain too much about a free weekend.

    Except for the 7am thing! [:0]

    do they mention which towns you’re going to? I reckon the likes of Parkes, Orange, Forbes, Dubbo will be on the list… anyone else want to make some guesses?

    cheers

    Is a weekend like this good idea for one who would like to have a good look at the markets in country towns, evaluate areas, suburbs , buildings and prices.
    I am fairy new to this +IP ideas and feel this may give me some experience.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.
