Dear Property investment Educators,
Putting some thoughts together about Property Investment Educators (PIE) has been long overdue. Probably the fact that we have just completed our second property through your program is testimony in itself as to how highly we rate your service.
Working as a property valuer, I’m taught to critically analyse various real estate opportunities and in doing so it is easy to be skeptical.
With this in mind we approached the first information night and the in-home consultation in a cautious manner.
The approach from PIE was certainly not high pressure and an excellent introduction to the world of property investment. This was particularly so for my wife, who was less familiar with some of the concepts involved.
From the time we decided to undertake our first investment project with PIE, we have found that the task is made extremely simple and a genuine ‘turn key’ process. After being guided through the selection of house and land and organising finance; the construction phase, handover, organisation of depreciation schedules, tenant selection through to property management is all taken care of.
In contrasting this with self-managed projects, the advantages of PIE become clear; particularly for anyone who is time poor or starting out in property investment.
It may be possible to source properties which initially appear to be a cheaper option, but PIE offer added value in many areas, which is evident once the house is completed and a tenant is in place.
PIE have established relationships with builders which allow the project to unfold in a simple and timely manner. Having assisted numerous clients build specifically for investment purposes, the designs and specifications are tailored to maximise appeal to tenants, maximise depreciation benefits and minimise vacancies to name just a few of the ‘hidden benefits’.
We would like to sincerely thank all associated with PIE for their assistance in getting our investment portfolio started. Their service is something that we have already recommended to others and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.
Second time around was a lot easier. Less stressful and knew what to expect. Very happy with the end product. Will do again when we have enough equity. Thank you to Sonya, Andrew and the team at Vibe Finance.
Meeting the team of “Property Investment Educators” has assisted us in our endeavour to secure and sound ﬁnancial future. In a time of much talk about skills shortage and long waits for homes to be build we were pleasantly surprised and delighted that our home was completed with minimal fuss, on time and is a much shorter time frame than what would normally be expected.
The team are not only professionals that know what they are talking about, but their enthusiasm and NO PRESSURE approach allowed us to make the decision to stop talking and start acting.
From start to finish, this has been nothing short of exceptional; from all the people we have had contact with, Sonya, Adele and Gary and now Simone & co from LJ Hooker Modbury. (Not to mention Andrew Dudson for introducing us to NRAS).
