If a Property Investor Isn’t Using These 5 Tools, They’ll Be Left Behind


They say that 90% of all millionaires become millionaires through owning and investing in real estate. 

We’re not entirely sure if that’s true.

But one thing is undeniable.

If you aren’t using well-respected tools and resources to perform thorough and detailed research into the properties you buy and the market you’re trying to break into, you’ll be letting yourself down.

There’s no sugar coating it. 

You’ll be left behind.

That’s an easy fix. Below are 5 tools that every property investor should be using to keep themselves informed.


This well-known encyclopedia is highly accessible to both property newbies and veterans alike.

Not only is it a terrific resource to look for any property in Australia that you want. It’s superb for learning a whole range of different tips, tricks and investment techniques.

It’s also excellent if you’re hungry for information on taxes, renting, property management, property financing and more.

Basically, it’s your go-to guide for everything Australian property.

  1. Smart Property Investment

One of the best resources on the internet to find critical property market data.

Complete with detailed informative news articles and podcasts, this is certainly a place for every property investor to source information necessary for crushing goals.

You can source high-quality expert analysis on the property market, whether you’re craving information on the newest listings, trends on postcodes, taxes, the metaverse and more.


A brilliant resource to find exactly what its name suggests – the value of a property.

Sometimes we don’t have time to engage an agency or wait for a bank to come back with a property valuation.

A tool like Property Value can help you get a pretty good idea of what a property is worth at your research stage.

It can help you also make data-driven decisions when figuring out the best way to grow your portfolio.

  1. Smart Investor (Australian Financial Review)

The Fin Review’s Smart Investor is a well-known national authority on the topics of personal finance and investing.

This is another outstanding resource for the confident investor who has a strong understanding of financial concepts and is looking for ways to apply those concepts to their personal finances.

This, of course, includes property investment.

  1. (forum)

There is true power in community.

If you’re looking to pick other investors’ brains, join the Property Investment forum (it claims to have over 100,000 members and growing).

Sometimes the best ideas you’ll get are from bouncing off other people.

This community is incredibly active. You’ll be sure to learn something useful navigating your way through the various threads and drilling other investors for information.

You have what you need. So go nuts!

(Or, if none of these websites do it for you, ask for another reference – we have plenty of other resources up our sleeve).

This is what we do.

We are finance strategists in the Mortgage Broking industry, helping Australians build wealth through property investment.

Our sole purpose is to reinvent ways to keep the Great Australian Dream Alive. Because we believe it’s everyone’s right to the security home ownership affords our families and community. Yes, our niche is Finance Strategy for Property Investors, but it is not what we do that makes us tick;

Because property investment is a decisive step toward financial freedom, we cultivate lasting relationships with our clients. We ain’t just a ‘whame bam, see ya later man’ kinda outfit. In fact, our business is built entirely from our lasting relationships with our clients who have suggested us to their inner circle – their family and friends. That is a pretty big tick of approval and a sure vote of confidence.

This is How we do

What separates us from the rest?

Have you ever considered the difference between Mortgage Brokers?

A Broker worth their salt has a playbook of ‘scenarios’. They are finance strategies that have worked in the past. He will offer up one, two or even three scenarios that he thinks will work best for you. 

But the great ones challenge the status quo, strategising new plays that serve your unique situation and financial goals. They will study, visualise, and fine-tune before offering only the best scenarios that build a rewarding property Portfolio.  

They never let good be the robber of the best and only play to win!

InvestorFi is a group of finance strategists that will design a unique scenario for your state of play towards your long-term game plan.

But don’t just take my word for it.

Clients like Tony F. said: I couldn’t be happier with the service. Wayne was excellent in guiding me through and delivering a great investment loan. Very responsive and savvy investment brokers. Will continue to use their services in the next purchase. 

And like Kim, Wayne is extremely dedicated, professional and a pleasure to work with. He worked tirelessly to help me secure an alternate lender before the settlement date and was extremely prompt and clear in his communications with me. 


Robert wrote: Wayne is always very responsive and takes the time to lay out all the options in plain English.

Reviews like this make our souls sing. We’re in the business of helping people achieve real results that last!

So if you’re looking for a great Finance strategist like these incredible clients, you’re in the right place.

This is why we do

Gone are the days a single income could afford 2.5 kids, a pet, and a four-bedroom house in the burbs! 

At InvestorFi, our sole purpose is to reinvent the great ‘Australian Dream’. Because we believe it’s every citizen’s right to the security home ownership affords our families and community, not just for today but for generations to come.

But because it’s become so difficult, it requires complex solutions. One way is to seek finance strategy before purchasing a home. This way, you can leverage your full potential to live where you want to and invest where you can afford to. 

Property ownership has become a game of ‘finance strategy’, placing a premium on finance know-how. That is why we value education; our mantra is knowledge equals freedom, but knowledge shared is freedom multiplied.  

There is no drought; we have hit a new era with its epic challenges. Not everyone is up for the grind it takes to keep the dream alive. That’s why we also place a premium on camaraderie. We don’t see ourselves as a ‘hit and run’ service but as a hub and a way of life.
