Evening PCs Just wondering if as anyone has had any dealings with 'Merlot' in QLD ? I have older family members who have done a map session and are considering going with them for a house and land package on the Gold Coast. Merlot have a 9 year rent guarantee (with 3% increases each year), 12% management fees and an establishment fee which works out to be about $7k per house. The product is a 4/2/1 on 300 sam (something I personally am not interested in). The family member has very poor finance skills and believes this company will help them pay off their house faster (but is yet to demonstrate how) and will set them up for retirement (in 8 years). This company cold called them on the home phone. They asked my opinion as I "understand numbers". I have never heard of this company but they sound similar to other spruikers. I would be interested to know if anyone else has used this company or is doing house and land packages in on the gold coast.
