Did you know Australians build the largest and most expensive homes in the world? Every developer and property investor has four bedroom and two bathroom houses that all look the same. With 2.5 people on average in each household. Many of the rooms in these homes are unoccupied. 

On average, there are 12 million empty bedrooms tonight in Australia, and the reason those bedrooms are empty is because up to 50% of home owners and renters are either singles or couples. 

Negative gearing has created the false pretense that you will get wealthy in property, however all that has happened is that people are losing money on their properties weekly, are struggling to live and this has created an unprecedented climb in the cost of housing. 

Add to this that the housing built in the last 50 years has not catered for the demographic and we have a problem that has never existed before – housing that is too expensive to rent or buy and a demographic that does not require the extra room. 

The average tenant to rent rooms is the middle class single person or couple and they have no accommodation to rent or live in that suits their requirements. They have a good job, want convenience and accessibility to other components of their lives and they have no place to go except unsuitable stock. 

Homelessness is also increasing, government housing is ill-equipped to deal with the issue and does not match the requirements of the people seeking affordable housing options.
You CAN enter the property market without over extending yourself.

You can turn your negative geared property into positive geared cash flow and;

You can, no you MUST start fixing the housing gaps that exist by providing needed housing opportunities.
If you want to start doing this, you need to start thinking Small is the New Big. 

Why? Because smaller is smarter and will return you much bigger rents, much bigger opportunities and much bigger outcomes for you, the community and tenants. No one loses here!

The High Income Real Estate System is a system that will set you up for life and put you on the path to even greater financial success, while creating housing diversification and realistic solutions in the housing shortage epidemic.

We offer you solutions on how to enter the property market, maximise the earning potential of your existing portfolio, create housing diversification and help people find homes that are suitable to their needs, NOT homes that a developer thinks they need. 

This system bucks the trend by using out of the box strategies. Having done the hard work of navigating through the mountains of sometimes illegible government, state, local policy, rules, regulations, standards and summarises this into clear and succinct processes, tools and analysis on how to implement those proven strategies.

What if you could follow a formula to replicate the strategies, processes and tools of the successful property entrepreneurs leading this method to produce the same results, but with better outcomes, would you do it?

Imagine if you knew the keys that let you reap the benefits of a passive income from the positive geared cash flow from real estate, while being able to tackle housing diversification and housing needs and demands at the same time? What would knowing these strategies and applying them do for your career, your relationships, your finances, and your happiness?
Traditional Property Investment Fails
On average 80% of people on housing lists are made up of 60% single and 20% couples. This means that 80% of people can live in a studio or 1brm accommodation. Unfortunately for them 80% of available accommodation is 3,4 or 5 bedroom dwellings. Therefore, traditional systems of development are not meeting demand. As a result rents are higher, competition for rentals are higher, it takes people longer to find something suitable which consequently puts more pressure on the housing system. Housing is not meeting the requirements of the single and couple demographics requiring appropriate accommodation.

The traditional strategies of investment include building wealth over time in the hope that it may replace your income in the long term future. The HI RES strategies help you maximise on your investments and triple your earning potential in a shorter period of time whilst accumulating more property, earning more income and consequently having banks wanting to work with you more!

The traditional system does not work or only works for a select few that get lucky but the luck is after much pain. 

The High Income Real Estate System (HI RES) gives you a new system that does work, is attainable and sustainable.

Ian & Christine’s Turning Point
A decade ago, everything was going well for Ian & Christine. They were financially established, with a growing portfolio of investment properties. So they thought! Christine could not take time away from work to be with their young children. Ian had a job that he loved and was passionate about.

In 2010 it all came crashing down…

Ian’s job turned sour, the working environment now toxic, and he began to dread leaving for work each morning. His income was at risk, which was a problem since Ian & Christine’s property portfolio was very negatively geared – a black hole for cash. The banks who’d financed it were already banging on the door and it suddenly looked like they might lose everything. The stress of it all was damaging their previously strong relationship. Ian and Christine were miserable and in utter despair.
The High Income Real Estate System program is the brain child of Ian Ugarte and Christine Manning, who from humble beginnings turned their property portfolio from negative $36,000 to leaving paid employment within 13 months and they have continued to grow their income. They have spent the last 5 years working on and developing the Hi-Res Cash Flow System.

After much testing and coaching and working with of a handful of early adopters this system is finally being released to the public.

Real People, Real Results

Gloria Aslan

"Since joining Ian and Christine’s first work shop we have rocketed ahead with confidence and the belief that we could do it and we have. We bought our first high yielding investment property in October, and only 2 months later and have exceeded our own expectations. They are a wealth of knowledge and we are very lucky to have had the chance of being their students."

Melissa Fisher

"I have had Ian and Christine as mentors for around 2.5 years. Between the two of them they are a wealth of knowledge, and absolutely love to share what they have researched, learned and experienced themselves.

They both become a part of your team moving forward, and put their all into what they offer as mentors and leaders in their field. Their concept of the HI-RES program is brilliant, a very impressive program with win win results, again a direct result of the belief and dedication they have. "

Josh and Kara Collins

“Since joining the HIRES program in August 2016 we have completely changed our lives around! We are beyond grateful for the program and by September we had our first property sorted then mid September were onto the second and early 2017 our third. Ian & Christine really are amazing people who will go the extra mile for everyone. We have freedom, we have options, we have more time together as a family, That is absolutely priceless!”

Greg and Karen Kings

“We meet Ian and Christine 2.75 years ago. It has truly been a privilege to meet a man with such great passion for what he does and has an even “bigger heart”.

The passion and excitement that both Ian and Christine have given us with Ian’s visions, has allowed me (Greg) to follow my passion in property and to begin living a lifestyle that we had only ever dreamed about. When you love what you do people are drawn into this atmosphere, this is why we and many others including our kids, adopted kids, family and friends who have joined the journey, are in such a wonderful place today because of Ian ‘s passion, knowledge and willingness to share, which is so inspirational."
Ian talks to Deborah Hutton, TV presenter and founder of coaching company Balance.
