A Business Times article was published “Property Investment Seminars on CEA Radar” dated 23rd September, 2013.

“There’s a need for the authorities to regulate the content and claims by these speakers,” said PropNex Reality Chief Executive Mohamed Ismail.

I openly praised and support Mr. Mohamed Ismail’s statements for authorities to tighten the content and claims by these speakers, be it in property, stocks, or commodities.

With implementation of cooling measures and the Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR), more Singaporeans are looking at overseas properties to invest in.

From a business point of view, it is enterprising for some seminar providers to tap on this demand pool of potential buyers with enticing advertisement claims.

Having spent more than 2 decades in sales with a majority of that in direct sales, I’ve known and used every 101 sales tricks in the book. If you’ve been to free seminar previews, you would’ve known what I meant. Some speakers are in fact no more than salesman than the ‘expert’ they claimed to be.

And here is one perfect gift for lazy people – a new type of Rubik’s Cube

Yes! I just purchased the best property investment deal from a property seminar. I don’t have to do anything. All I do is sit on my couch and the checks will be deposited into my bank account. They say they promised a 20% guaranteed return during the first year with a contract. Should I want to sell it anytime, they will either find buyers for me or simply buy it back from me. And the best part? I have only to fork out a tiny sum for the property down-payment. Where’s the exact location of the property? Well, just Google, it’s somewhere there on the map. I’ve seen it on presentation and it looks just fine. No risks, little money to start yet comes with great returns!

Even if it’s 100% financed, a bad property is a bad property!

There are many myths about doing property deals. Most contain a grain of truth – and a lot of misunderstanding.

Several printed advertisements and mass emails in the past couple of years have been exhorting that one can invest and own properties, with no money down. One advertisement even claims you can make millions of dollars with no money down in just 24 months!

Essentially, the advertisers would run a paid (or most of the time free) seminars to induce participants to sign up for their property courses that come with very hefty fees in the thousands of dollars to learn their ‘Secrets of the Experts’ property strategies that any average investor could apply with success. These advertisers would also sell you overseas properties on a no money down scheme and claimed they come with high returns.
