The Case Against Property Investing Education

An Urgent Warning to All Property Investors from Property Mentor Helen Collier-Kogtevs

You may be wondering why a renowned property educator and bestselling author who regularly appears on national radio and television is stating the case against property education.

Well first of all, let me say that there is property education, and there is property selling... do you get the difference?

When my husband and I started on our journey eight years ago, we made the decision to invest in our property education, much to the shock of my friends and family who now ask me for advice! That investment, which I was understandably nervous about making at the time, has been largely responsible for our financial retirement with a $7 million dollar plus portfolio.

BUT, here's the thing: not all property education courses teach you how to invest in property. Sadly in our industry 'education' to some provider's means a weekend pitch fest that is more focussed on selling you real estate or products, than on teaching you the strategies behind successful property investing.  The other common form of education consists of an educator providing you with a thick binder of confusing information, with no follow up or personal support. Pardon my bluntness - but that just ain't going to get you to where you want to go.

This is why I will be providing personal one-on-one coaching and five full day workshops as part of my 12-month property mentoring program for 2010. It's this personal support that has lead to 80% of clients successfully investing during our mentoring programs.

It's also why I have joined the Property Investing Professionals Association (PIPA)
to actively raise standards in the industry. Real Wealth Australia is QPIA® accredited through PIPA.
