Please note that while this forum is hosted by Somersoft, the views expressed herein are not necessarily those of the company, nor those of Jan or Ian Somers. The forum is open to all those with an interest in property investment, but users should respect the views of others and refrain from any anonymous, rude, libellous or unfair comment.
The role of this forum is to provide a way that property investors can learn about property investment from fellow investors. To this end the forum is a place for investors to:
This Property Investor Forum has been a natural
extension of what Jan and I have been trying to achieve through our
books and software tools: to help fellow property investors and
potential property investors gain the knowledge necessary to
confidently invest in real estate. In this regard the forum has already proven to be a great
success, with thousands of investors taking advantage of it to
network and learn from fellow investors.
In fact, I would love to take the credit for the idea of
establishing the forum in the first place, but that belongs to
someone called Les (now one of the moderators on the forum). Its popularity has been such that the hardware and software
resources needed to run the forum have been upgraded several times
now to cope with the demands and its latest metamorphosis has
largely been the result of the efforts of another forum member who
goes by the nickname of Sim (now one of the administrators and
moderators of the forum).
Both Jan & I strongly support the concept that you stand to learn a lot from the experience and independent advice of fellow investors. However, this is not meant to suggest that such advice is always the best advice or that advice from industry professionals is always coloured. There are many industry professionals who also give freely of their time and expertise to make valuable contributions to the forum.
But always remember that it is a public forum and, as such, the views posted are not necessarily those of Somersoft (Jan or Ian Somers) or of any of the forum moderators. Nor does Somersoft recommend or endorse any specific investments or business opportunities discussed by participants in the forum. In fact, the forum is not meant to be a place for classified advertisements. However, there may not always be a clear line between sharing information on investment opportunities and using the forum as a place to simply market products and services. If you think that your post might be interpreted as spam, don’t post it. Furthermore, self-promotion should be by way of deeds not ads. We recommend forum members make their own assessment of what industry professionals have to offer based on the utility of their contributions to the forum.
We do not support unfair, unethical, unsupported, libelous or crude comments, no matter who makes them. We reserve the right to delete any posts we consider to be distasteful, disrespectful, degrading or in any way outside the spirit of the forum.
