Has anyone heard of Investment Focus? They are putting on a property seminar this weekend in Melbourne, which I have decided to go and listen to.
They follow the philosophies of Jan Somers they tell me and went into great detail over the phone and were quite forthcoming about their outlook. I have parted with $30 for the pleasure (?) of hearing them talk for the day. Not sure if it will be worth it. I thought for such a small outlay, it was probably worth it
I attended an “Investment Focus” seminar in Sydney last year.
As I was more of a novice then than I am now, I found it quite informative.
Anthea and Robert were very pleasant people and as you say, they follow the Jan Somers principle of borrow, buy and keep. The focus therefore is on -ve gearing not +ve.
They also broker property deals although this is only mentioned towards the end of the seminar. It is not high pressure.
I bought a house/land package through them at Robina, Qld. The total price was $315,000 and the house was completed in July 2003. I have had a tenant in the property since completion. Recently the property was valued by a bank for $340,000.
Investment Focus are my managing agents and I find when helpful and more importantly very competent.
