Remember your Bonus before 30 June

Quite a few of you were rather quick to take advantage of the pre-30 June discount, for the set of Workshop DVDs — which is great! But that means I now have only a certain number left.

The simple reason for the reminder is that 30 June falls on a Sunday this year. Therefore, that makes it a short final week for the month — and I just don’t want you to miss out.

Your Bonus Before 30 June

The response to the Property Workshop DVDs has really been quite amazing – both from those of you who attended, as well as those who were unable to make it on the day.

At the moment, I only have a number of these DVD Sets left — which you can now purchase at a special price, before 30 June. And, because they’re for Investment purposes … that means the cost to you would be Tax Deductible.

You’ll find when you click through, that the stated price for the DVDs will be $97 for the Set. However, I am reducing that to only $85 until 30 June — or until the remaining DVDs are sold!

Just place your order, and the special price of $85 is what you’ll actually pay. But you will need to move on this one.

Happy investing!

Rush to Sell Up or Transfer Your Commercial Property Investments into Your Super Fund!

Should you hold, sell, refinance or simply transfer your Commercial property investments into your Super Fund?

You have until 30 June to put up to $1million into your Super Fund tax free. And then, that figure drops to $150,000 from the start of next financial year.

This simple logic is very persuasive — some people would even say a “no-brainer”. But, according to ING, that logic could be misguided and leave you worse off for up to 20 years.

The G+L December eBulletin

By now you are probably winding down, and getting ready for a well-earned Christmas break.

As you’re aware, the purpose of the postings on this site is to give you quick updates on events affecting you as a Commercial property investor.

However, our regular eBulletins are still designed to give you a more in-depth analysis of Market trends — but on a quarterly basis.

The current eBulletin takes a look at where you are in the Property Cycle; and what it is you need to consider.

You can now go to our main website for the complete picture.

Stre-e-tch Your Thinking!

One of the questions I seemed to get asked a lot is … _How do we keep coming up with creative ways to package the deals, for the properties we help you (as a client) to acquire?_

As you’ll appreciate, it obviously involves an intimate knowledge of property itself; and having nearly 40 years’ experience probably doesn’t go astray either. But there is more to it than that.

You see, the real secret is in being able to see anomalies and discrepancies within the normal pattern of events. And also, being prepared to “challenge” the accepted (and expected) way of doing things.

Recent 2-day Property Seminar

A couple of weekends ago, I spoke at a 2-day Seminar in Sydney organised by Wealth Creator Magazine. My session was all about the *Emerging Trends in Commercial Property*.

As a regular subscriber, you are pretty much kept up to date with those trends through the eBulletins you receive — and now, via these regular Updates. However, several people at the seminar showed a keen interest in how you go about successfully structuring an acquisition.
