These people and organisations in the property investing industry can help you get started in real estate investing:

  • ANALYSTS and COMMENTATORS  – economists, financial planners, journalists, or others with some financial qualification, who comment on and analyse the property industry. Some also analyse general investing, investing data and claims by some in the property investing industry.
  • Before you waste your time or money, avoid investing scams and mistakes by checking out BiG’s ‘Property Guru Cops’, such as:

Specific property industry watchdogs:

  • Property Investment Gurus (below) give some type of property investing advisory service or product (often not real estate agents) – particularly advice on strategies. They’re rated red, yellow or green.
  •  In the BiG Directory you’ll find people who provide ancillary services, such as:
    • people who source property (such as developers, and real estate agents,  buyer’s agents)
    • financial planners
    • finance providers
    • conveyancers
    • lawyers
    • property and strata managers
    • quantity surveyors

The BiG Directory only lists the real estate agents that I, or our members, have used, or who have paid for advertising (all are subject to comments and review). BiG isn’t a real estate agent ‘yellow pages’, because you can already find many directories on the internet (eg in the various real estate institute member sites).

The Directory has tips on choosing real estate agents (see below too).

  • Take a look at some blogs and forums where investors discuss their experiences of real estate agents and property investing in general – such as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ real estate agents and commissions. Some are:
    • investChat  – forums on investing generally
    • PropertyChat – forums and information on property investing (previously Somersoft)
    • Whirlpool (particularly their Finance forum)
    • Australian Property Portal (Forums and a lot of real estate information):
      •  Australian Property Portal News – updates property news from Property Observer; Australian property Magazine; Business Spectator; Australian Property Forum; SMH Business and Money Morning
      • Australian Property Blogs: [*their  marketing/claims*]
        • Macrobusiness Superblog
          No nonsense analysis of the Australian and global economy and the effects on your assets and business.
        • Steve Keen’s Debtwatch
          Steve Keen is Associate Professor of Economics & Finance at the University of Western Sydney, and author of the popular book Debunking Economics.
        • Chris Joye’s Aussie Macro Moments Variously described by News Ltd as an “Inflation Hawk”, “Iconoclast”, “Svengali”, a pollie’s “Economist Muse”, and “Pungently Accurate”.
        • Michael Yardney’s Property Update
          Property update started as a humble email newsletter in 2001 and now thousands of property investors from Australia and abroad visit the site each day.
        • Property Observer
          A source of independent news and information for property investors and astute buyers, so they can make informed property investment decisions.
        • RPData Blog

PROPERTY INVESTMENT GURUS

The property investment ‘experts’ or ‘gurus’ below (often not real estate agents) give you information and advice on property investing. They usually specialise in a specific method or strategy.

 The ‘About’ column quotes their marketing blurb, so “They claim” (I in no way endorse their claims.

If they’ve been reviewed (under our Traffic Light System) we rate them: red, yellow, green. If you or others send me any information or feedback on them (including any rating suggestions), they may be re rated.  They may go back a colour if there’s negative information or feedback. I’d love you to contact me and tell me any experiences, good or bad, that you’ve had with anyone in the property investing industry.

(The BiG Directory lists people who provide ancillary services such as: mortgage brokers; property managers; builders; and developers.  If you’ve had great service and want to recommend anyone, feel free to share the love and contact me! )

Traffic Light™ system: I’d love to hear your experiences of any ‘gurus’ – listed, or not. As the site grows and more reviews done, I’ll show their strategies and as much information as possible. You then decide whether or not you’re interested in using them.
