    Pivoting to a positively geared philosophy

    Pivoting to a positively geared philosophy

    In this episode of Inside Commercial Property, co-hosts Phil Tarrant and Scott O’Neill sit down with an investor who’s relatively new to the space — and already seeing material gains from the move away from resi.

    Paloma is a Brisbane-based medical professional who was comfortable being negatively geared across a number of properties, but in December last year, she took a plunge into the commercial space, encouraged by the kinds of figures she was seeing — and the sensibility that accompanied the data.

    Having bought into a West Australian commercial property with three sturdy tenants and a Brisbane cold storage facility, the trio unpack the factors that are already driving a strong return on investment for Paloma as she looks to generate income away from her day job and continue on her commercial property journey.

Phils experience using Rethink is not the service we get

Overall the podcast is great, it provides lot of learnings for commercial property, but the service Rethink provides is not really as Scott describes, and the quality service that Phil has said he is receiving is definitely not the service that the rest of us receive.
I used Rethink Investing and Under their recommendation Rethink legal. The property they found me I am very happy with, but I didn’t get the “hours” on the phone Scott said they spend, making sure I understood the deal and the due diligence they did. My experience with Rethink Legal was appalling and I would never use them again or recommend them to anyone. They didn’t explain the contract detail to me, they missed things in the contract that I picked up, my emailed questions were often ignored, and I have been abused repeatedly by their lawyer who I was told is the director of Rethink Legal.
As I mentioned the podcast contains great info and well worth listening to, but if you engage Rethink Investing the service received is not what Scott says they provide
