Richard Bowser, editor and founder of Property Investor News Magazine, welcomed Louise Reynolds of Property Venture onto the PINCast to discuss the topic of due diligence and the need for thorough research when investing in property projects.

In this latest PINCast, they explored the importance of due diligence from both the perspective of property investors and developers in this constantly evolving marketplace. They both suggested using an online registry to verify claims made by developers and to check the authenticity of project ownership. 

Louise emphasized the need for triangulation, checking information from three independent sources, and Richard suggested seeking up to seven sources if the situation is critically important. They cautioned against complacency and overconfidence in both investors and developers, and stressed the need for thorough investigation to avoid potential pitfalls.
