    Question Independent investors in brisbane

    Independent investors in Brisbane?

    Is there such a thing as a property investors association in Brisbane or Australia for that matter? Being a New Zealander I was helped along the property path via our property investors association, that is independent of the property industry as a whole and works entirely for the benefit of its members.
    Now living and trying to invest in Brisbane I am craving some independent advice from people that are not trying to sell me their product.
    Even a group of investors or a mastermind group would me great?? Any ideas??

    You can't get proper advice from a public website. Public websites are a bit like public toilets: Was Kilroy really there? Should we really fear the limbo dancers? Did he really "sit, broken-hearted"?

    But for what it's worth (ie, almost nothing), then sit on your powder. The current alleged "pick-up" is a classic dead-cat bounce.

    Give it 12 months, at the very least.

    Go to a registered established and sucessful real estate agent, they are there to help you and will inform you of anything you need to know be it prices/selling times/yields etc. A real estate agent is the most qualified and knowledgable person out there, its their job, they should know about any investor associations, whom to contact etc

    Can I just fill this out a bit. If you do decide to get along side a successful REA, just make sure that person understands investment property. Terms like "yeild" and "cap rate" can give you a blank look otherwise.

    WB, when you say "most qualified", I assume you mean that in the broadest sense of the word? Some tertiary qualified valuers, for example, would dispute that comment.
