Property Workshop 2009 ~ Here are the Details …

chris-seated-sqThis year’s Annual Workshop is set down for Saturday 4 April at the Athenaeum Club, 87 Collins Street in Melbourne — and the booking arrangements are now in place.

Come along and learn first hand about a proven 9-Step Investment Formula for Commercial Property — and you can find out now, exactly what you will be covering on the day.

Also you will see there’s an “early-bird” discount there for you, if you’re quick to enrol. And of course, I would love to catch up with you there.

But even if can’t make it along — just have a read anyway.

And if you think the Workshop sounds worthwhile … make sure that you Digg-it. And feel free to share it with any of your friends or colleagues as well.

You May be a Doubter … But I say: “Yes, we can!”

The Weekend Financial Review ran several articles, which seemed to echo many of the sentiments contained in my last blog about the Capital City Markets — but perhaps putting things a little more bluntly.

Taking Stock of Commercial Property

As I mentioned in a recent email to some Clients, it’s been surprising how few quality properties have been forced onto the market — given the difficulties caused by current global turmoil.

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.

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.

Trying to Make Sense of Things?

There has been much made of the poor US Retail Sales Data for December.

However, the figures were only down 0.4% on November. The most likely explanation being that some early Christmas shopping occurred November; and the increase in gift-card sales will not come through until early in 2008.

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.
