011 | Property Spruikers

We’ve got four words when it comes to property spruikers, folks…   

Run for the hills! 🏃🏃 

Today’s topic is something we’re extremely passionate about which is why we’re focusing an entire episode on it!!   

Too often we’ve heard of “sharks in suits” who have no proper training giving terrible financial advice that can cripple folks’ wealth and make their lifestyle dream, well, a dream.   

In fact – hearing about these people is why we started this podcast in the first place!   

To help you avoid falling into the same situation, today’s episode will define who property spruikers are, what they do and why they even exist!   

More importantly, though, we’re covering HOW you can avoid them!   

We’ll be providing you with industry intel so you can also identify the main tactics they use (as you’ll hear with some spruiker “educators”…)   

AND we’ll explain how property advisors will act when they really have your best interests at heart!   

Did you know that Australia’s peak industry body, the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) can also help verify your buyers’ agent?   

Yep, that’s right folks!   

There are plenty of good tactics that you can use to stay away from the sharks. To find out more, just tune in to today’s episode.
