Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know SPI is legit? The industry isn’t regulated.

Excellent question. It is important to be very wary of anyone giving you ‘property investment advice’. Unfortunately most property marketers and some real estate agents will promote their exclusively listed properties under the guise of property investment advice however their responsibility is to the vendor and not to the investor (purchaser).

A checklist to use whilst interviewing who you are getting your advice:

  • Are you qualified with legitimate certifications/qualifications?
  • Are you insured to offer property investment advice?
  • Do you/does your organisation get exclusive property listings?
  • Are you a member of an organisation or association that enforces you to adhere to a strict code of conduct?

The team at Simple Property Investment are insured to provide property investment advice and are an accredited Property Investment Advisory under the ASPIRE Advisor Network. Founder Nick Holden is a Licensed Real Estate Agent, holds a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) and Certificate IV Financial Services (Finance and Mortgage Broking). He also has more than 15 years experience investing personally, as mentioned on the About page.

Can I buy a property in my suburb?

Yes, however we want you to have the property best suited to your needs, rather than just because you live nearby. After we discuss your goals and create a strategy, we will help you find a property anywhere around Australia that fits your profile and comfort level. To give you the best choices, you will have access to properties across Australia through a private online property portal. Or if you have something specific in mind we can request the Acquisitions team to source it if possible.

Whether it’s in your suburb or interstate, the Acquisitions team will personally visit every property to make sure it meets our strict property selection and due diligence requirements. And importantly, we will make sure it will meet your long term property goals.

So onto how we get paid…

What are your fees?

At no point will we ask you personally for a fee. Our advisory work is also provided without obligation to qualified investors. To be a qualified investor you simply need to have a suitable borrowing capacity and a genuine interest in wishing to invest in property.

How do you get paid?

We get paid a professional services fee from the vendor for introducing you to their property through the ASPIRE Advisor Network . Often a vendor may be selling their property through a local real estate agent and will pay ASPIRE the equivalent of the sales and marketing fee that they would pay the agent. This effectively allows us to provide our complete service free of charge to you.

This is similar to how a mortgage broker gets remunerated. They help you get the best finance option for your circumstance and get paid by the lending institution for introducing you to them.

Am I paying current market value for my property or has the price been inflated?

One of the most important requirements that our Acquisitions team undertake during their due diligence process is to make sure that the purchase price the vendor has set is at competitive market value. If it isn’t, it will not pass this step and will not be listed on the portal.

Remember that we work for you and not the vendor. We have no obligation to promote any particular property. This is a major point of difference from property marketing groups and some real estate agents where they have exclusive listings and can set the price at what they hope to get. They do not have your best interest at heart.

One thing to be aware of is the difference between bank valuations and market valuations.

I don’t have an accountant or financial planner. Do I need to find one?

Through our extensive network, we can introduce you to a range of professional advisors.

We have strong relationships with every advisor we work with, so you can expect the experience to be as smooth and enjoyable as possible. With peace of mind that everything will be taken care of.

Will you get me to only buy certain properties?

No. Our role is to give you professional advice and guidance based on your goals and strategy. We’ll also act as your buyer’s agent to find the property that fits your personal criteria – anywhere within Australia, not just your local area.

With access to a broad range of properties all around Australia we identify the very best in each segment of the market. From affordable options to boutique properties, house and land to luxury apartments, if it makes a good investment we’ll find it.

We’ll give you options to properties that will have the best possible chance to perform well. You will have all the insight, data, research and reports at your fingertips through our online client portal. So you can make a well informed decision about your investment.
