What we want as investors - technology part 3

In this third part of our four-part technology series, we’ll start diving into detail about some of the specific solutions Ripehouse makes available to you as an investor. As you’ve probably started realising, we’re dealing with an inherently fluid and potentially complex set of ongoing requirements to manage in the course of property investing. The good news is that technology has a key role to play in making each of our four core stages of learn, locate, acquire and manage considerably easier to tackle over time.

“Technology” is an admittedly broad umbrella term, so it’s worth breaking down what we mean by it in a little more detail. There are four main moving parts to consider:

●      Big data: Ripehouse has access to an exclusive and continuously updated set of hyper-local, real-time market data from all across the country. In terms of actionable information, we’re dealing with a combination of scale and specificity that can be used to unlock investment insights which are simply unavailable via other means.

●      Investor communities: Our platform gives you instant access to both investment peers and a range of industry experts with proven track records of delivering results. You’ll benefit enormously from operating in the privacy of a supportive knowledge network that’s been built specifically with your needs in mind.

●      A thriving research platform: In addition to mining data, we’re actively researching relevant trends, topics, theories and threats across all areas of the Australian property landscape.

●      Smart education resources: We’ve leveraged the best of modern online educational technologies to put together a world-class property investment learning centre that’s open for business twenty-four hours a day. Just a small ongoing investment of your time will deliver a full spectrum property investment education that will be the envy of many who’ve spent years studying the field.

We believe strongly that technology is a tool to be used, rather than a trial to be suffered. Regardless of how complex the number-crunching or data analysis behind the scenes might be, you’ll find our software a pleasure to use on the front end, and a genuinely transformative aid to your investment journey.

Regardless of your existing level of technical expertise, the learning curve involved with using the Ripehouse platform is gentle, and there’s an enthusiastic support team waiting to help you at every step of the way if you need it. Let’s look at some of the practical ways our technology can assist you.

Technology Provides an Impartial Scorecard

As you become more familiar with the local and national property landscapes, you’ll find no shortage of shrill voices trying to steer you in one direction or another for their own benefit. While opinion and market sentiment are important factors to take into account in investment, they mean nothing unless tied into cold, hard facts.

Our technology enables you to put together an impartial, data-driven scorecard you can use to independently assess the success and value proposition of any expert you encounter. You’ll be able to use our software to backtrack advice and recommendations that have been given to you, and put together a complete picture of any expert’s actual track records.

Technology Helps You Steer Clear of Spruikers

As a natural follow-on from our previous point, technology also helps keep you firmly out of the clutch of spruikers across the land. Sadly, there is a significant number of less than ethical sales and marketing people out there who make their living largely by feeding off unwary first-time investors. Technology helps you shine light on their more dubious claims and keeps them accountable.

Clarifying the Context Around Decisions

Emotion and intuition will always play a certain role in investment decisions, and it’s by no means a negative one in many situations. That said, long-term success hinges on being able to marry those elements to rational, data-driven factors. Technology has a crucial role to play in helping you get together as complete a picture as possible before you make any final purchasing decision.

Technology Should Empower Rather Than Confuse

We’re firm believers that the role of technology is to empower and not to confuse. There are far too many spruikers and unscrupulous marketers out there peddling sophisticated fear-based packages that work by dangling alleged “insider secrets” in front of investors that they then have to pay a fortune to unlock. It’s a black box approach that we rigorously oppose. By giving you the keys to your own data and strategies, we seek to use technology to empower rather than bamboozle you.

By choosing Ripehouse, you can be confident that the technology will be working for you rather than against you at all times, and that it will happen in a totally transparent manner. There are no hidden tactics, or magical, exclusive, inner circles of advice — just hard-working investors such as yourself who are using technology to secure a better future for their investments and themselves.

Keep a keen eye out for the final instalment in our technology series where we’ll wrap things up with a closer look at Ripehouse as an end-to-end investment research platform and our approach to integrating technology throughout.
