Want to Snap Up a Real Bargain?

Because … the Vendor is rather keen to wrap this up, over the next week to 10 days.

Last Friday, the Rouse Street auction ended up being passed in on a “Vendor bid” for $975,000.

The current net rental is $65,500 per annum. And, in the current climate, the Vendor is now extremely realistic on price.

Have a quick look at the property, if you haven’t done so already. And then, give me a call on 0425 791 254.

The Rouse Street Retail Opportunity

Last week, we had a little hiccup with the “advance notice” email I sent out to you. And again, my apologies for that.

The Shop itselfSo far, we have had some good interest in this Port Melbourne property — however, a few people did have a little difficulty, while trying to access some of the legal documents.

“Hardware Lane warehouse
goes at wholesale price”

67-73 Hardware LaneTHIS IS how The Age (on 9 July) described this recent purchase, which I successfully negotiated for one of my interstate clients.

Managing to reduce a $7.2 million reserve price down to a final figure of $6.4 million … resulted in a saving of almost $1 million.

So, What is the Market Doing?

With all that has occurred recently as a result of the American Sub-Prime crisis … Property Investors are finding it hard to gauge the current market.

Some are preferring to “sit and wait”. Whereas, others are seeing it as an opportunity to secure a good deal … while the present confusion reigns.

Retail — Where to from Here?

The Prime Minister’s “freezing” of parliamentary salaries is a clear endorsement of RBA Governor Stevens’ warning to curb our spending.

Last week, I mentioned the impact this could have on retail turnover — with a flow-on effect for growth in rental and sale prices for the Retail sector.

The Effect of the Rate Rise?

Yesterday’s interest rate increase by The Reserve Bank carries with it some hardship for the outer residential suburbs around Australia.

p=. CPI Figures

Curbing inflation is clearly the RBA’s main aim. And from their additional comments yesterday, we now have confirmation that Australia is effectively seen as being shielded from the turmoil in the US.

I Did Warn You About this …

You probably saw that the “Full House” notice went up yesterday for the Property Workshop.

But there is provision for you to go onto a Wait List, if you missed out on reserving your seat — because, invariably a few people will drop out between now and March.

PLUS, if you do put yourself on the Wait List BEFORE the end of January … I will still honour the early-bird rate of $797 for a seat.

However, if you wait-list yourself AFTER 30 January … then unfortunately, it will have to be at the full rate of $1,100.

So, make sure you don’t miss out for a second time.

Only Your 3rd Day Back?

Well, here’s some good news on the next Property Workshop!

Following a barrage of emails from those of you who took off the week before Christmas … you will see that the early-bird registration has been extended until the end of January.

However, I suspect the “Full House” sign will be going up before then. Therefore, if you haven’t already reserved your seat … make your decision now — rather than miss out.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Property Workshop … Early-bird rate soon to Expire

I was just checking through the enrolments for the Workshop so far … and it seems that the interstate people are currently outnumbering those from Melbourne … by about 3:1

Last time, local and interstate enrolments were more or less balanced … so let’s try and even that up.

Make sure you enrol now, to secure your pre-Christmas discount.

This time — Don’t Miss Out on
The Annual Property Workshop!

Details are now up for you to read and enrol.

If you do come along … I promise it will completely transform the way you invest in Commercial property.

Last time … sadly, I had to turn a number of people away. However, those who did manage to secure a seat were truly stunned by some of the bold new ideas we covered — as part of the breakthrough 9-Step Formula.

Key issues like …

* Structuring your Finance to “beat the Bank”, and …
* Negotiating & Marketing techniques to make sure you leave NOTHING on the table!

To capture these same insights and enhance your own investment success … why not find out more about this Property Workshop?

Project Workshop 2008 … Update

Last week, I confirmed that the next Workshop will be held on Saturday 1 March 2008.

Because people had to be politely turned away from the last Workshop, I gave the opportunity to pre-reserve a seat … for those not wanting to miss out on this one.

Anyway, I was rather surprised how strong the pre-reservation has been.

And this Friday, it will be ONLY these people who will be given first chance to enrol — before the official posting of the Workshop registration page goes up next Monday.

So, if you would like the opportunity to “jump the queue”, you can still do so now. Because, with only 27 seats available (and some 4,019 on my Membership list), it may well end up being a locked-door Workshop.
