My Story

I’m Mark Shearwood and I have been in the property industry since 1991 and have over 18 developments on right now which total over 23 million dollars . I’ve also helped a large number of students on their property investment and development journey enabling them to set themselves up to be FINANCIALLY FREE.

Whether you’re just starting to learn about property development or have done some courses but finding it hard to find a site and take the next steps; I can help you achieve your property development goals WITHOUT the costly mistakes that could set you back years or stop you in your tracks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I start if I’m on a low income?
Yes, When I started I was only earning 60k a year or less. I worked 3 jobs and I was very motivated and determined to make this happen. You can start on a low income, it’s all about how it’s structured and planned out to achieve your goals.
How much do I need to get started? Can I get started if I have no money?

You’ll need to have a deposit saved or an existing property that you can draw down some equity on.

You can get started with no money, but it’s a lot more difficult. There are many people out there spruiking no money deals but they are extremely difficult to pull off, it’s like winning the lotto.
You will need an income of some sort and a strong detailed plan and strategy to make it work and eventually if you stick to the plan and you buy the right properties in the right locations with all the right fundamentals then the plan just works and the money will start flowing in forever.

How long will it take me to be financially free?
This is different for every person, it depends on your individual goals and what financial freedom means for you and how much income you need to generate every month to live your dream lifestyle.

Once you establish how much income you need then we work backwards to figure out how many properties you need and at what yields and leverage. This then becomes your goal and we then need to work out what properties in what areas will achieve that for you.
Most students find that they’re able to achieve financial freedom in a 10 or 12 year timeframe however some achieve it a lot sooner with the right knowledge, strategy and plan.

What if I have never developed or renovated before, I’m worried I won’t know what to do?
That’s why it’s important to get the knowledge and work with people who have done this before so that you avoid making costly mistakes and move forward with the right strategy and plan that’s going to get you where you want to go.

I have done many renovations and I also have over $20 million dollars of property development happening right now. I can teach you the skills of development or renovating or we can work together and do a renovation or development and you will learn along the way.

Do you help people in trouble?
Yes, a lot. Recently a 65 year old lady cried in front of me because she owned 14 properties and was paying a shortfall of $3500 a month to the bank because she bought the wrong properties that were never going to get her to financial freedom.

She has been working 3 jobs just to stay afloat. After working together and mapping out a plan she now has a clear direction and through actioning that plan in about 2 years she will be on an income of over 200k per year and she doesn’t need to sell any properties.

How can I work with you?

Are you a buyers agent?
I am not a buyers agent but I do help and consult with clients to buy the right property. I research, negotiate the sale with the agent on their behalf and help them with the loan structuring to make sure that they have the right loan and the right property that will get them to where they want to go.
Do you find people development sites?

Yes I do. As I currently have over $20 million in development projects happening right now, I frequently come across development opportunities that will work. I also do all the feasibility studies, easement checks, pre-planning mud maps, electricity points, stormwater issues etc.

It’s really important to select the right property to develop, for every property I approve, there are about 40 I say NO to because they won’t work.

Why do I need your help?

I see many many many times people who want to retire off a real estate portfolio fail because they didn’t have a plan or strategy to succeed. Did you know that 78% of people own 1 property and 5.75% of Australians own just 1 investment property and the figures get worse. There are only 0.06% of Australians that own 6 or more investment properties because they bought the WRONG house in the WRONG location with all the WRONG fundamentals which was never ever going to get them to where they want to go, do you want to be one of those statistics?

Imagine if you get this wrong?

How can you help me?
Most people fail in property investing and development because they don’t really know what they’re doing and they don’t have a clear strategy and plan for success.

In order to achieve financial freedom through property you need a strategic plan, tailored to your goals and circumstances, that allows your portfolio to grow itself. By buying the right properties, in the right order at the right times; each acquisition creates more wealth which allows you to leapfrog and buy the next and the next until you get to a point where those properties are generating enough income to give you financial freedom.

In Australia 78% of property owners only own 1 property (their primary residence) and only 5.75% of Australians own just 1 investment property and the numbers go down from there. In fact, only 0.06% of Australians own 6 or more investment properties and are financially free because they bought the WRONG house in the WRONG location with all the WRONG fundamentals which was never ever going to get them to where they want to go.

I can help you avoid becoming one of these statistics by educating you and working with you to develop your strategy and plan ensuring that you buy the right properties that lead you to financial freedom instead of making the costly mistake of buying the wrong properties that stop your dreams dead in their tracks.
