First-home buyers definitely have it easier in the 21st century, thanks to social media.

Aside from having access to near-limitless information, they are also able to find online property communities where they can share advice, problems, stories, and more!

Unfortunately, not every member of your forum or chat group is a housing market expert–nor do some have the purest intentions at heart.

In today's episode, we're discussing online property communities, forums, and chat groups! Should you rely on these online "experts" for information or are you putting yourself and your property investment at risk?

We also discuss the influx of FinFluencers in the digital space, the advantages of belonging in a group of like-minded individuals, and some questionable advice from these online "experts" on bidding at auction!
