Professional Investor & Best Selling Author

Dear fellow investor,

There’s a saying I’ve come to know is true: the teacher comes when the student is ready,
so however you’ve come across this webpage, I’m confident that it wasn’t a fluke nor random coincidence – you’re here to learn and profit from something I can teach you.

Let’s try to figure out what that might be…
Who Am I?
Just like you, I was once someone trying to figure out how to successfully and sustainably use real estate to achieve my financial goals (which in my case included no longer having to sell my time for money a do a job I didn't enjoy).

It was 1999, and aged 27 and with little knowledge, but lots of courage (and perhaps more than a little bravado), I began investing in real estate: a pretty little three bedroom home in  one of the less desirable areas in Ballarat. 

I made lots of mistakes, some of them quite expensive, but less than five years later I’d managed to buy more than 200 properties, and in the process had accumulated enough positive cashflow to achieve financial freedom and never have to work again.

Things only accelerated from there, including buying hundreds more investment properties while also being blessed to be able to guide, impact and influence millions of people to invest more successfully. The latter came about via the best-selling books I’ve written, the many live training sessions I've conducted over the past two decades, and the library of acclaimed investing resources I’ve published.

Today, I control a purposeful property portfolio that delivers an annual high six-figure passive income. This empowers me to provide for my family, and enable us to live the life and lifestyle we desire, as well as supporting causes and charities that add significance and meaning to our existence.

I continue to firmly believe in the wealth building power of real estate, and look forward to helping people make sense of investing, and to guide them to become more empowered and confident in their decision making.
Four Short Steps To Success
Just about everyone buying and selling real estate, or teaching real estate investing, has a singular focus: the property. They say, or teach, that buying the right property, in the right area, with the right tenant, is the best thing you can do to make the right profit.

I respectfully disagree.

Just like your perfect life partner can’t be simplified to someone with blue eyes and brown hair, your perfect property investment can’t be dumbed-down to just a street and a suburb.

Your job as an investor, is to match your desired investing outputs (i.e. make the most money, in the quickest time, for the least risk and lowest aggravation) with your available investing inputs (your time, money, skill and risk tolerance).

My '4 P's of Property' is central to finding your perfect investment property. They are:
Do you see the difference? The masses advocate property as the first (and sometimes only) consideration, whereas I teach the the right property is the one that has the highest likelihood of delivering your desired outcome.

What does it matter? Focusing on property first usually results in a dysfunctional property portfolio that lacks cohesion and results in management inefficiencies, resulting in profit slippage and higher aggravation.

Here’s the lesson: don’t let the shoe dictate the foot size. Have the foot (i.e. your purpose and plan) dictate the shoe size (your profit and property).
Hot Tip: Look For Something, Not Anything
There are presently thousands of properties currently for sale. How do you know which is the right one for you?

Most people just want one that will be profitable, but that’s not much help because every agent with a property to sell would faithfully share that it might be profitable. So how do you narrow down the thousands of properties currently for sale to a handful that you can focus on?

The answer is not to spend hour after hour looking at real estate websites trying to find a great deal that other investors have missed, because the chances of landing the prize fish in a pond already fished-out by more experienced and professional investors is a long-shot at best.

Here’s what I advocate (assuming you have worked through the four steps I shared above)…
  • Calculate your ‘buying budget’ (based on your available capital and borrowing capacity)
  • ​Narrow down your ‘target area’ to locations where you can afford to invest (based on your buying budget)
  • ​Search for properties that meet the criteria you’ve outlined by completing my 43-point ‘Ideal Investment’ checklist as part of your Property Acquisition Plan

    And once you’ve found some properties that look promising…
  • ​Test their suitability by putting them through my three-part proprietary due diligence system to determine whether they are good deals, or are duds in disguise.
  • Calculate your ‘buying budget’ (based on your available capital and borrowing capacity)
  • ​Narrow down your ‘target area’ to locations where you can afford to invest (based on your buying budget)

    And once you’ve found some properties that look promising…
  • ​Test their suitability by putting them through my three-part proprietary due diligence system to determine whether they are good deals, or are duds in disguise.
Are you starting to see how real estate investing can be about choice, rather than just buying something and relying on chance? That your success is within your grasp when you invest with purpose?
Ready To Take The Next Step?
If what I’ve outlined resonates with you, and you want your success to be a matter of choice rather than chance, then here’s how I can help.
Using my 20+ years of real estate knowledge, experience and expertise, I’ve created what I regard to be the most powerful and purposeful system ever written for planning, finding and buying high-profit, low-risk real estate, my STEPS TO SUCCESS: PROPERTY PURCHASING SYSTEM (or just STEPS).
Course Outline
The programme focuses on twelve steps that I have identified that summarise the buying process from concept to completion, and that are grouped under the following ‘READY – SET – GO’ illustration.

STEPS begins by asking you to establish your very own Wealth Action Plan – a very important document that will become your blueprint for setting and accomplishing your wealth creation goals.

Many investors fail to have such a document, and without a ‘conductor’ their wealth creation is rather like an amateur high school orchestra. By itself an investment may sound and play okay, but in unison, the investments are often out of time, and out of tune.

Also included in STEPS is my Property Acquisition Plan – a six page template that includes in it a list of 43 key characteristics that you need to define that will become the benchmark for your ideal investment property.

Once you’ve completed the template, you’ll have a written benchmark upon which you can compare the deals you find to see to what extent they match your requirements (and to what extent they don’t)!

Next, and by no means least, my PFR template to find deals the smart way: by having real estate agents find them for you (including getting access to deals not listed for sale on the internet).

STEPS 5 to 9: SET

By the end of step 4 you’ll be ready to start searching for properties, and, when deals start coming your way, you’ll want to put them to the test to see whether they are as good as they look.

The process is called ‘due diligence’, and, sadly, few investors know what to do, nor when to do it, so they do nothing at all.

But not you! You’ll be armed with my three-phase due diligence technology, which is the exact system I use when I buy investment property to determine whether it is a good deal, or a dud in disguise.

You don’t need to be an accountant, or have an MBA. Just follow the step-by-step instructions.

Oh, and if maths isn’t your strong suit then don’t stress, because I’ve included my Property Maths Matrix – a very helpful worksheet that walks you through how to quickly, easily and simply crunch the numbers like a pro investor.

STEPS 10 to 12: GO

Once the property has passed due diligence, and you’re ready for the contract to go unconditional, you’re on the home stretch, but there are still several steps to walk through to ensure you’re ready to profit from the first day you own the property.
Course Structure
STEPS is comprehensive. It comprises more than 720 pages of detailed guidance and instruction on investing theory, and guidance on how to successfully apply and implement it to find, analyse and buy high-profit low-risk real estate.

To help you progress through the course and apply the content to your unique situation, I’ve split the 12 Steps into 90 sessions, all of which are delivered via the online training portal accessible via your account.

The training session includes:
  • Written course materials (which you can read online, or print out, if you prefer)
  • Application questions
  • Instructional videos
  • ​Additional course assets and bonuses
It's estimated that will take between 60 and 90 minutes to complete each session.

Remember, you don’t need to wait until you have completed the entire course to start buying real estate. After just the third week you’ll be empowered enough to find deals with confidence, and to start putting them through their due diligence paces.
STEPS Templates & Checklists 
One of the features of STEPS is how easy it is to understand and apply. I’ve spent months breaking down usually complex topics and presenting them in easy-to-understand ways, and by making use of templates and checklists and spreadsheets wherever possible, including:
What Do People Say About Training With Me?
We're so incredibly grateful for your life-changing course!

- Genevieve Snape
Training with Steve has helped me become a more intelligent investor who now relies on financial data and analysis to determine whether a deal is worth pursuing or not. If you have the opportunity to learn from Steve, I strongly recommend you invest in your skills because Steve teaches you how to fish for longevity.

- Tuyen Hoang
If I had Steve’s systems when I was starting out I know for a fact that my property investing would be more advanced than it is today. If I was you, I'd stop procrastinating and get on with creating a great future for yourself using Steve’s systems and wealth of experience.

- Ross Burke
Since finding and learning from Steve McKnight we've been motivated to take massive action in planning, carrying out due diligence and discussing findings with others, and making offers. It's like being swept up in a wave of investing empowerment, being humbled by those further along the journey and encouraging others who are just starting out.

Prior to training with Steve we lost over $500,000 on two failed property projects. Since signing up with Steve in 2010 we've completed 14 development projects worth $20m, made close to $5m in profit, and used that money to buy our dream home. I love what we do. I have a huge amount of flexibility, freedom and time to spend on what I choose as compared to my prior life in the corporate world - and I’m earning much more in doing so.

- Amanda Conroy
I went from zero to 3 properties in under 8 months, and made $107,000 profit in one year. I'm now on my 5th deal... all by using what Steve teaches.

- Shehan Tambinayagam
Training with Steve has been phenomenal. His knowledge is second to none and his ability to share that knowledge, in easy to understand terms, made it informative and interesting and fun.

Do yourself a favour -sign up and you will learn more than you thought possible from a very genuine subject matter expert.

- Gayle Philpotts
The training materials Steve has produced have given me a tangible way of becoming a more sophisticated investor instead of aimlessly gazing at real estate ads. It has also motivated me to put in the effort required when the rest of life just wants to take over.

Steve’s proven strategies, systems and experience sit well clear at the top when it comes to wealth creation education. There has been nothing more valuable than learning in real time, side by side from an expert investor who is so giving of their knowledge, experience and time.

- Troy Small
The new knowledge we've gained through studying with Steve has increased our level of confidence, provided us with a systematic approach to conducting due diligence and management, helped us successfully sell two of our investment properties and ultimately saved us tens of thousands of dollars now and hundred's of thousands into the future. Steve has given us the tools for a strong and steady foundation upon which to continue to build our investing, come rail, hail or sunshine.

- Rebecca Le Brown
Training with Steve has helped me immensely with due diligence in analyzing deals and following through on the numbers that validate a good deal and also support effective negotiation techniques.

Many thanks Steve for your awesome skills, pearls of wisdom and guidance that supports ongoing life and financial success!

Training with Steve has helped me gain the confidence to invest in commercial property with his clear process and guidelines.

Additional Bonus #1: Owner Interview Questionnaire

But not you! I'll gift you a template that contains the questions I ask the seller as part of my due diligence process.

Ever wondered what questions you should ask the tenant to find out whether they're happy with the property, or to tap into their knowledge to find problems that only they know about? Wonder know more, because as a bonus item I'll send you a list of the questions I ask tenants before I buy a property.   

Additional Bonus #3: Agent Interview Questionnaire

The real estate agent is another source of great information about the property - both as it is now, and how it might be if you added value. Join STEPS and I'll give you as a free gift my 'Agent Interview Questionnaire' template which includes the questions I recommend you ask.

Polish your investing skills as I review and critique real deals and provide raw and unfiltered feedback. Gain incredible new insights into real life investing, and glean new ideas, tips and techniques about how to find and filter new opportunities.

Alternatively, if you can pay it all upfront you'll save a further $1,000!

I’m new to investing – is this suitable for me?
Absolutely! There is no better way to start than off the right foot, and being part of STEPS will ensure you do just that.

I already own property – is it too late?
I recommend that you put the property you own through the STEPS experience in hindsight to work out whether it was a smart purchase, or something that may be holding you back. Of course, you’ll also benefit from the knowledge you’ll gain on your next purchase ensuring you don’t repeat any mistakes you might have made.

Can I go at my own pace?
Yes, you can. You can just work through the course at your own pace. Access to the first seven sessions is instantly available, with the remainder unlocked once the 7-day trial period ends.

How long until I’ll be ready to start looking for deals?
You’ll be ready to start looking for deals in earnest from Session 20 (end of week 3).

Does STEPS include how to make offers with confidence?
Yes, it does. I outline how to make an offer that is dependent on your deal passing due diligence so if you decide you want to pull out (before the contract goes unconditional), you’ll get 100% of your deposit back.

Is the course tax deductible?
You’ll need to see your accountant to check, but as a guide, if you already own investment property then there is a strong case for it being tax deductible. Regardless though, don’t let the tax tail wag the investing dog! Wise people invest a little in education, because ignorance is expensive.

What support is offered?
The course is written to be self-sufficient, however if you encounter problems than you are able to lodge a no-cost support query.

If you’re after 1-on-1 assistance and mentoring from me personally, then I make myself available when time permits to those in the STEPS community for an additional consulting charge.

Can you offer an installment payment plan?
Yes, you can pay in four installments of $990: today, and then 3 monthly payments thereafter. However, you’ll save even more if you can pay in one lump sum payment.

Can I pay via EFTPOS?
Yes you can. Details of how to electronically transfer funds direct into’s bank account will be given during the checkout process. Your access will be granted once the funds arrive.

I have a question not answered here…
