Here are some of the questions that we’re often asked and their answers. If you can’t see your question here, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What does Active Invest do?
Active Invest helps new and experienced investors accelerate their returns by tapping into the compounded growth of BOTH Passive and Active property investment strategies. We do this through a range of services including:
Who’s behind Active Invest?
Rod Peirce is the principal of Active Invest. He started as a property investors in 1987, and has successfully executed more than 15 of his own renovation / development projects. He has since helped hundreds of clients to further their success with property investment and is still as enthusiastic about helping investors succeed as he was when he started.
How do you help property investors?
Active Invest helps clients through all aspects of property investing including education, acquisition, renovation and development. We help you formulate the right Active investment strategy, and then help implement the pieces you need.
How are you different from other property advisors?
Firstly, Active Invest does not sell or accept commission from vendors on any property. Our fees are affordable and fully transparent. Secondly, we combine property investment expertise with the right funding strategies to achieve overall success. And thirdly, we focus on ACTIVE property strategies that may involve renovating or developing properties. We don’t leave you to wait for the value of land to appreciate.
Why do you focus on ACTIVE property investment strategies?
We advise clients to invest in properties that have ‘active potential’ so they have the opportunity to leverage their investment spend through a value-add renovation or development in the future. They can choose to implement a renovation or development themselves (with our assistance), or they can sit tight on their property holdings with the expectation of strong appreciation based on the future potential.
What kind of clients do you work with?
Active Invest works with first-time and experienced property investors. First-time investors may want to start by acquiring their first property with value-add potential. Or they may wish to embark on a renovation of that property to accelerate their equity gains. More experienced investors may be more comfortable moving straight on to a small development, where the potential gains are much more significant. We have a range of services to suit your experience level.
Where are your clients based?
Active Invest serves clients from all over Australia. Having said that, because most of our activity has been based around Melbourne, we have a large number of Melbourne and Victorian clients. We’ve also worked with Australian expats who want to build wealth at home in preparation for their eventual return.
How much do your services cost?
Active Invest fees are modest (many say too cheap) and fully transparent. They aim of every service we provide is to add much more value to you than it costs. An initial exploratory chat is free and without obligation, and will allow us to advise what fees may apply. Contact us.
How much money do I need to get started?
Getting started in property investing is not so much about how much money you have but rather what you do with your income. We’ve helped clients get started with as little as $80,000 in cash or equity. Most often this is drawn from the existing equity in your home.
