    I subscribe to his mailing list and received this today. Giving away 'free' seats at a seminar he is speaking at around the country in March/April and stopping at every capitol city. Seems the cost is reduced from $99 to free using the code MS1620.

    Property Market Update » Metropole Property Market Update

    Yes i'm sure you'll have to put up with some Metropole sales talk, but i've read some of his more recent books so i'm sure i should learn something.

    I've learned a lot from Michael both in investing and business.
    Well worth attending.

    Surely cant hurt as long as your wallet stays at home.

    Metropole's mantra is buy in "blue chip" area's for CG and equity harvest for next buy.

    He may also be promoting his latest book as per below

    Clicked on the link and watched 2 minutes of his "footage from 2013 seminar" at the bottom of the website. Sounds like he is advocating LOE (which I thought he never used to but could be wrong) and using equity to repay the interest on the money loaned to fund the lifestyle. Not a fan of LOE.

    I went to one of his seminars at the same time last year. A quick way to add to my learning as I had not purchased an IP at that point. Agree with the above - keep your wallet closed. All the real advice you need is here. A seminar helps to get you thinking on strategy, just avoid the trap of accepting one person's point of view ( he pushes 'inner ring', I guess because that's where his affiliated buyers agents, etc are ).

    Lets see how well that works in a more regulated credit environment.

    All these models, introduced since the white shoe brigade evolved out of SE Qld in the late 80's, have been formed around an assumption that equity can always be accessed / harvested ... easy to do when rates were falling, dual incomes were rising , LVR's were expanding and servicing calcs were accommodating "actuals" ..... not so easy any more...

    Tthe countless stories on here of investors with oodles of equity who are now unable to access it quite so easily should tell you all you need to know about the longevity of these models.

    Certain models worked pre APRA. Certain models will work post APRA. never ending harvesting of equity isnt one of those that will work for most people, post APRA. APRA and ASIC have disrupted these antiquated models.

    Models where ongoing portfolio building works hand in hand with cash flow management and deleveraging, have a much brighter future post APRA

    I went to one of his 1 day seminars around 10 years ago.. I did get some value out of it, although I didn't have as many IP's then. May attend this one and see how it is!

    Hi @Thorm,
    I attended in 2014. I had no properties at the time, and I was hitting up every seminar I could find. Of the free seminars that I have attended, Michael's one is probably one of the best ones I've been to. They had Dr Andrew Wilson (Snr economist of APM/Domain), Ken Raiss from Chan & Naylor, and some other experts in their field give good presentations at no cost.

    They do try to flog off some products at the end of the show, including a $10K mentoring package.

    I find the networking opportunities the most beneficial aspect of attending events like these. You're in a room full of investors, and would be investors, and you can make some great contacts. I'm starting to attend more of these again this year.

    Hope to see you there.

    I paid $99 and went to the one in Melbourne last year, mainly for Andrew Wilson's preso. I would go if its free but be prepared for MY's sales pitch on mentoring, property development, wealth retreat, books and other products and Ken Raiss selling his "special" trust structures and other accounting products. I've noticed with lot of these low entry cost seminars are minimum on education and more on selling their bigger ticket items. Only person that won't be selling you anything on the day is Andrew Wilson and he knows his stuff.

    I just had a look and punched in the promo code. If it's free, why still need your credit card details?

    @Thorm you legend! Almost paid for 2 tix couple days ago but got distracted and didn't follow through. Subscribe to the emails too but missed this promo. Do have to put in the credit card details but comes up $0 to be charged.

    Got all his books at a Vinnies for $20 and found them very informative on all aspects of PI'ing.

    Hope to see some of you there :) Maybe arrange for a PC table?

    Some of them are free, but charge if you're a no show.

    So boring, they all sell the same lines. Make you feel like you have to do something now, or else. Then you end up buying his books at least.
    Which was ok to read to be honest.
    You will learn more on this site anyday.
