    Thank you, Neil, for a brilliant article filled with so much wisdom! I especially liked (and laughed out loud) about Rule 6 – “Some people will say they are “not comfortable” with being recorded in which case you should reply, “What, you are not comfortable with the words that come out of your mouth?”
    LOVE IT!
    Thanks Neil, for your continuing diligence in this field !
    Cheers,
    Gabrielle

    Love it Neil so very true. It’s not only unethical for a buyers agent to take from a vendor & a seller it’s unethical.

    I might blog this and credit back to your website.

    Good advice! I particularly confirm the one about “Love”. We have bought two investment properties and both were ones we could imagine to live in! Why?
    Because if it feels right to live in it yourself, it will be easier to rent and might attract long-term tenants, something you can’t count on in Australia. Our duplex at the Gold Coast has the same tenant for the forth year on her second lease; she once moved out (due to financial problems), we then had another tenant for two years, and when the place became vacant she applied to move back in. Our second property has stable tenants in their fifth year now – despite 3 rent increases.

    Thank you Neil, wish I had something like this to read 10yrs ago when I invested in a property in a mining town, lost over $100,000

    Don’t buy in a boom… so are we in a boom (or worse) now? Fear of missing out is a strong incentive, and I’ve been waiting for this market to correct for 10 years now…
