Managing risk

There are no guarantees when buying an investment property and worse still there are some unscrupulous people with get rich quick property investment schemes. The old rule of thumb is that if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is!

If you are considering investing in property we recommend that you stay current with Scamwatch – a Federal Government initiative.
