Another chapter – On Your Terms

Here’s another chapter for the new book, ‘On Your Terms’

As big decisions are involved with buying property, it’s important not to skimp on the right advice. Good accountants and legal advice can be vital in ensuring things don’t end up going ‘pear shaped’.

Sure it costs a little more in the short term, yet in the long term it might just save you an astonishing amount.

On Your Terms – Our new book

On Your Terms is our new book we are promoting at the moment. It’s for sale on this site at the moment for a $10 download.

It’s a simple and straight to the point book about successfully buying property in today’s market. The main focus here is that the ‘natural market’ can make plenty of mistakes and it’s important for prospective property buyers to understand this.

By thinking the opposite to what everyone else thinks, we can often put ourselves into the best possible position. This is an early chapter discussing the herd mentality. The market often moves in a herd approach. Confidence breeds confidence while doubt breeds doubt.

Welcome to the revised site has gone through a few big changes of late. You’ll notice the cleaner site, high emphasis on videos and ‘the stripping back’ of unnecessary information.

It’s really just the start for Secret Agent. We’ve got some big things happening in the pipe line that we look forward to sharing shortly.

Thanks for reading as always.

We’ve taken a few days off!

A quick sunshine break before the Spring market really starts to kick into gear.

We will be back next Monday with the normal auction wrap.

Catch you then – Thanks for reading.

I’m off to San Francisco

As part of trying to see the best of the world when it comes to Real Estate practices, I’m off to America for a little over 1 week.

I’ll be posting some random thoughts over the next week on this blog.

New Book

BookWith so many ‘self help’ books being more harmful than good in the property arena, we decided to write a book that gives very simple, straight forward info to property buyers.

The book is now complete and should be available for digital download on our site over the next month or so.

We will keep you posted on final dates for its release. Thanks for reading.

Easter and Good Friday

From Secret Agent, we hope everyone has a great time over Easter. No auction wrap on Monday as a result of minimal auction activity.

Enjoy the time off!

500 Posts

Thanks for tuning in. 500 Posts is a little milestone for me. Numbers mean little for most, so I hope you’ve enjoyed the content. If you feel like anything should be added here I’d welcome your feedback to [email protected]

Interesting times anyway, last weekend yielded over $1 Billion worth of Real Estate sold. With the long weekend in front of us, transaction numbers will be smaller.
