    watched quite a few of her webinars, has some very good tips and hints.
    So maybe a workshop would be good depending on cost ?

    She's an ex mining engineer, used to work with explosives and other things that go BANG! Jane is awesome.

    I think the hardest thing to try figure out when purchasing a property is where to buy. The rest is easy. If she can give you a good methodology to figure that out, it's gold.

    A big part of her strategy is to buy and renovate to add value in area's set for growth or under valued compared to neighbouring suburbs.

    Looking for suburbs that have a big variance between renovated and un renovated properties also is a key metric she looks for..

    If she is hot spotting then you need to look at her track record.

    We know there are many gurus who hotspot, but get it wrong.

    If she is that good then she should be able to provide their past predictions, areas which performed well above average growth.

    Just remember some gurus were hot spotting mining towns, not only did they get it wrong their clients lost their shirts.

    Don't pay a cent to anyone unless they have a track record

    I haven't done this course, 2.5k is a little steep. I'm sure it is quality info. I have done Jane's Renovating for Profit at Community College. It was $110 from memory and was very good. She's running one in September in Sydney

    Might be a good starting point.

    Also

    With just two investment properties and one renovation the average Australian can put a million dollars in the bank within 15 years! In fact using my techniques you can do it even sooner!

    I know Jane professionally and she is pretty much spot-on with all her advice. Some of it isn't WA appropriate, but then, she doesn't do WA....!

    I believe that if you are going to pay for a course please make sure that they teach some of the other important parts too, finance, feaso, tax, structure. Many find out "after they have bought" ;)

    $1M in 15 years, that is very slow?

    Most will say slow and steady is best, low risk, not necessarily. I have not viewed the properties or areas she is purchasing. I am also not saying she is good or bad.

    Lets look at the last 3 years we have seen booming markets in Australia.. some young guns on this forum have made $1M+ during this period and this is not equity/cash.

    My point is when considereing strategy if you want better than average results consider market conditions, this is priorty IMO.

    JSS strategy is with just two investment properties and one renovation over that period though ;)

    The Young Guns may have done more
