    Our experience in talking to investors is that it is all about trust and professional credibility. Firstly, they can't tell the difference between a real estate agent acting for the vendor's best interest and a property investment advisor. Often their trust is misplaced with the wrong party.

    Secondly, they don't know what technical measures of the market to pay attention to, hence they are seduced by the 'real estate' myth that all property goes up in value over time and choose on glamour. What we need to create credibility are recognised technical measures of potential performance of property products to up skill the advisors and educate the investors.
