Learn the property strategies advanced investors are using right now!


Start or scale your property income with the advanced systems experienced property investors use, no matter what the market conditions.

The property market is constantly changing.

So, how do you know which strategy will work and when?

They used to say that property was as 'safe as houses'. But these days, only the savviest investors keep their property side-hustle humming.

Lately, I'm getting A LOT of questions...

What will COVID-19 mean for property? Should I buy now? Should I sell? Is renovation or flipping the right strategy? How can I optimise the cash flow on my existing properties? Is it better to sit on my hands and wait to see what happens? And most importantly, "Ian, what are you doing in property right now?"

Micro-markets are volatile, rents aren't where they used to be, and can you even rely on capital growth anymore? How do you safeguard your investments, or even think about buying a property, when so much around you is in flux?

It's all pretty confusing. And I've been where you are right now.

Back when I started investing, I followed traditional investment advice and bought residential property after property (all negatively-geared). I was in the 'accumulation phase', and my equity was increasing like mad. 

But eventually, I couldn't afford to hold my properties anymore. The outgoings and finance costs were killing me.

I didn't have another strategy to fall back on. I didn't know of any other way to get out of the situation other than to sell up and practically start again.

You've heard it before, but yes ... I wish I knew then what I know now!

Now, more than ever, property is not a set and forget game.

Truth is, most advanced property investors have multiple strategies at their finger tips at any one time. They pivot, and they deploy the right strategy to take advantage of market fluctuations and stay one step ahead. 

If I had a deeper understanding of all of the strategies investors use to diversify and safeguard their properties, I wouldn't have sat as long as I did in a 'buy and hold' strategy.

Since then, I invested in educating myself. And these days my portfolio is Cash Flow Positive. I mix Development Strategies, Commercial, High Yield Strategies, Subdivision, and more. 

I look harder for a deal, crunch the numbers, and make more profit in the process.

And I put financial strategies in place to protect my assets, minimise my finance costs, and maximise my returns.

It's not easy to find all this information in one place. But I've made sure you can.

Here’s what people are saying about the course ...



I joined Ian and Christine's class to learn proven options of how to invest in Real Estate for the long term. I have been involved in the construction and property industry for some 20 years yet I still found Ian's presentations enlightening together with his down to earth invigorating deliveries. Ian provides sensible and proven ways on how to research and how to grow profitably if you're wishing to enter the property market. He always goes the extra mile. You are also not forgotten once you have undertaken the Advanced Property Systems Course. This has given me so much comfort as Ian's knowledge of the Industry is sound and he gives me a different perspective on the current situation evolving, within the changing world of the property market, backed up by research.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone to undertake Ian's courses whether you have been in property for some years, tried investing and it didn't work, or want to learn how others have successfully developed a profitable investment in property.



Ian ran a very detailed and extremely educational 12 week program. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more information and would encourage others with a property and financial freedom mindset to enrol - you will be glad you did.



Advanced Property Systems is a great course to fill in any gaps in your property knowledge. Though I've invested in property before, the course showed me how much there was that I didn't know. Ian's knowledge is far reaching, and his generosity in sharing it in this course has no doubt saved me tens (if not hundreds) of thousands in mistakes I would have made.

Course Curriculum

12 Modules designed to give you a deep understanding of the Property Strategies advanced investors use to always stay one step ahead of the market.


Module 1:
The Mistakes Property Investors Make

We kick start our 12-week traning program with the most common mistakes that novice and some experienced investors make. The market is currently changing and you need to stay one step ahead. So to help you avoid costly pitfalls, we'll challenge old investment paradigms and ensure you're using only the strategies that work in the CURRENT property market.


Module 2:
Asset Protection And Trust Structures

Unsure of the best purchase entity or structure to buy your properties under? Want to know how advanced investors minimise their tax and protect their property assets while maintaining favourable serviceability with banks to borrow and buy again? Don't be seduced into asset protections schemes that costs thousands. We'll give you all the information you need to set up your financial structure right.


Module 3:
Renovation. Can You Flip Your Way To Profit?

We've all heard of renovating for profit or property flipping. But can you still renovate your way to property riches? We'll take you through this strategy's pros and cons, and explain critical feasibilities and due diligence that you'll have to take into consideration to understand whether a deal actually tacks up. Just because a property needs a renovation, doesn't mean you can make money renovating it!


Module 4:
How To Find The Best Deal

So many investors are worried about whether right now is the time to buy, when in fact, the question they should be asking is; "If I buy now, how much should I spend, where should I spend it, and what should I buy? In this module, I'll share the 27-step process I use on every project to unveil; where to buy, how much you can afford, the risks you should consider, and the best strategy for your budget.


Module 5:
Base Strategies

Inexperienced investors stick to one strategy no matter what the market is doing. Their returns are entirely market dependent. But it's when you stack strategies that you really double down on your property profit. This module looks at Base Strategies including; Subdivision, Strata Title, Renovation, Retro-Fit, and House Relocation. By the end, you'll understand how to use these strategies to grow your equity and property income.


Module 6:
Cash-Poor Strategies

It’s not easy to save money for property. Affordability in the current housing market is at an all time low in Australia in particular. But there is hope! In this module we'll dive into the many alternatives out there that can get you into property investing or grow your portfolio with 'low or no' money down like; Savings and Budgeting, Joint Ventures, Vendor Financing, Rentrepreneur, Builders Terms, Swaps, Options, and 'Rent to Buy'


Module 7: 
Development Strategies

There are so many steps along the way to a successful and profitable property development outcome. In this module learn to hone your skills as a property developer including; how to build your team, managing the D.A. process, how to fast track your applications, and understanding development feasibility calculations. Plus, learn to assess whether a property has development potential.


Module 8: 
Commercial Strategies

Commercial property can be an extremely rewarding place to play, but without the correct knowledge, it becomes a very high-risk game. In this module, we'll introduce the potential of buying cheaply increasing rents and delivering a massive return on investment. At the end, you'll advance with the knowledge of Commercial Cash Flow, Weighted Average Lease Expiry, and Yield Calculations.


Module 9:
High Yield & Multiple Income Strategies

When the market is uncertain, you want a high-return strategy that is relatively low-risk and that's where High Yield & Multiple Income Strategies come into play. Here, we'll cover everything from Short Stay (AIRBNB), Set and Forget Strategies, HMO, Single Room Rentals, New Generation Boarding House, Rooming House, and the Best and Highest Use of an investment property.


Module 10:
Sell Strategies

In a seller's market, properties sell quickly and typically for a higher price. But if your property listing is languishing with no 'bites,' you may need to look at changing your approach to one of these three things; The Price, The Property, Your Agent. You'll learn to understand how the language an agent uses can diminish your sale price, how to adjust your listing in search to avoid negatively affecting the price, and how to stage your property to maximise returns.


Module 11:
Property Finance & Depreciation

Understanding property finance and accounting, and knowing how to structure these to work in your favour can make or break your success. In this module, we'll explain loan serviceability and look at ways to ensure you can borrow again to finance your next deal. Learn to understand commercial finance, its benefits and pitfalls, and how easy it will be to resell. Plus, we'll dive into depreciation, to maximise your profit.


Module 12: 
Undertanding Subdivision

Subdivision is a great way to manufacture growth in the value of your property. By taking a single parcel of land and dividing it into multiple parcels, you have the opportunity to also multiply your profit. In this module, we'll discuss; how to determine your potential outcome through council local planning schemes, understanding subdivision terminology, and key feasibilities you'll undertake to assess the profitability of a possible subdivision project.

Are you as excited as I am?

I'm a big believer in pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, because it's in those moments that you learn the most, and more importantly, you grow!

Almost 3 decades ago, I started in property, and I've made my share of mistakes and learned more than I could have imagined.

I've designed this course as a download of my knowledge and experience. It's the jump start I wish I had when I started out.

And I'm so excited to share it with you.

I can't wait to see you in class!
