    But the point is people don't know that. That video was a daily blog for mums and dads, not designed to educate skilled investors. When I talk about school zones etc. people get very excited. Most people don't know where to start

    Hmmm.... Like I am with IT - sometimes I need to stop and really think how much I know after 15 years in the industry when someone asks me what I consider to be an almost stupid question. You tend to forget how much you know when you deal with newbies.

    Really, Marc? I just laugh in my users' faces, flashing my yellow coffee-stained gnashers and directing my IT-style halitosis in their direction.

    I'm a hit with the ladeez in the office, let me tell you.

    Ha! I would love to be able to do that - though we would lose clients so maybe not....

    I really noticed this in the last 12 months. Suddenly all the same questions I used to answer were being asked by new people at my events and on PT. The problem once you get familiar with something is you assume everybody else knows it.
    In 2003 I didn't have a clue about investing. I'd never heard of gearing, yield, location, nothing.

    I go out of my way now to always go over the basics with people because so often they have big gaps in their basic knowledge.

    Just saw a piece on Close up on council valuations and how misleading some of them can be, just as in deans blog, on a coastal road the values were all over the place, QV had valued some of these properties at 600k more than what they actually sold for!!

    The government official could not explain why the values were so far apart, just backs up Deans blog about coastal property, I found it really interesting.

    Obviously if QV and others find it difficult to get the REAL value of coastal, what chance does the novice investor.

    3 cheers for Dean!!

    I hope this thread dies son, I have to keep going into xtramail to retrieve the notifications as they contain an unfortunate word association that dumps them all into spam.

    Thanks freezing, I just watched that also. Councils, irrefutable evidence of random selection :-)
