    Hey everyone,
    What's the general consensus on Michael Matusik and the reports he does regularly? Have the chance to buy an ipswich, north brisbane and logan report for $25 each..Anyone follow him for a while?

    Same questions about Terry Ryder and John Lindeman?

    Where do you guys suggest looking for the best reports on areas to invest? Residex? RP data? Realestateinvestar?

    By the time you read about them, the best places have already moved up significantly. You need to learn to be your own guru.

    Just have a read of this to see how wrong so-called experts can be - some by a factor of 2 x times!

    Ej89,

    Believe a great place to start would be Margaret Lomas and her "20 Must Ask Questions"

    These questions will give you a great basis and define the area prior to looking for the actual property..

    They all push their own band wagons, but if a $75 investment gets you reading, thinking and questioning then it is well worth the investment. I also think the Lomas publications are worth it - not because they will give the right answers but because they provide information on which you can base your own learnings. As Propertunity says become your own guru.

    I attended a talk with John Lindeman and thought he was quite systematic with his approach. He has a webside and, his reports go for a few hundred. Haven't bought any of his reports tho.

    I
    I reviewed his predictions Perth in the last rise, pretty average, all suburbs he predicted experienced CG however they were not the best performers, I would have expected a far better results to be honest.

    Then again perhaps their indications the do not include items that can make a significant difference to end values ie rezoning, infrastructure $. ..?

    Also I know one of his predictions last year in Perth was A suburb in south west, WA, unfortunately no growth this market is soft. I don't subcribe so these comments from I have seen. I would not subscribe

    I also looked at his predictions in Vic, NSW in the main they were regional areas, seems his missed the booming Areas.

    I'm not sure about Matusik, I've seen him on a video for an apartment development, so assume he was getting paid for it.
    Seen him named on Terry Ryder's stuff so maybe they're in cahoots?
    Lindeman seems to be linked with Yardney on the stuff I read.

    Thanks guys. Yeah I think the main reason i'd use to look at some of these reports and also "hotspots" and "top 25,50,100" lists is to maybe open my mind to areas worth investing in as I don't have as much knowledge of many of the places that the professionals name. I'm on the investing sidelines for probably the next year to be honest so I wanna do as much research on as many areas as possible so that when it's time to invest I can pounce.

    I like demographer Bernard Salt's presentations on areas as I know they aren't just real estate related. He did a great piece on Sunshine that may still be on youtube.

    Go ahead and try to read as much as you can. There's plenty of free info and reports available. If you were to pay for them now, they would probably be out of date in a years time when you're ready to buy.

    Thanks. Just watched this. He makes sense and talks about my kind of area with my kind of prices.

    Yes Matusik offers services to developers to rate developments (recommend)...he did that for one development we bought in and its our lemon...from an ethical perspective I feel it compromises independence as a researcher and conflict of interest emerges

    I'll read most things I see . I think we might have bought a report many years ago , but wouldn't waste my time now .

    HOWEVER

    I think there's one reliable , unbiased sorce out there which has been a significant factor in my success. It's something I check on a regular basis . Best thing is it's free .

    Also I find its been pretty reliable at picking areas before they move , but it can be time consuming . Haven't seen it wrong yet , but there's always a first time :eek:
