Quote of the Day

It’s not a (property) bubble because it wouldn’t pop. I think it’s more like a balloon.

Episode 015 | Real Life Property Investing in Australia : Case Study

The Property Couch ep 15 Real Life Property Investing in Australia  Case StudyAs promised in our last episode (Ep 14 : Should we buy in a boom and are we in a property bubble?) this time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about a new topic suggested by Aaron, one of our valued listeners. He has provided us with a case study and we think it’s a great chance to discuss about real life property investing stories in Australia. Here’s a summary of the question:

“Why does some apartments that seem to tick all the boxes just don’t appreciate in price overtime? This block at Brunswick is close to the public transport, schools, cafes and lifestyle but based on the comparable sales, the apartments have only achieved very little if any price gain since 2010. Your podcast have been saying “Location First, Property Next”, but I’m confused with this property. Why is this place so cheap? If it’s because of the property itself, does it mean the location is not always the biggest factor? And finally, should investors seriously consider properties like this or stay clear?”

 

Start listening to the podcast to find out why this block of apartments is not appreciating in value and why they are not investment grade properties but more like investment stocks. If you are interested in investing in apartments, check out Episode 7 as well where we talked about investing in One Bedroom and Studio Apartments.

How To Spot A Property Spruiker?

 

The issue about Property Spruikers is not a new one but a lot of investors out there are still unaware about it and as a result, receiving bad property investment advice. With this in mind, Bryce started this How to Session by defining what is a spruiker and describe some of the common ways to spot one. Here’s a snippet of the video:

I’ve been in this Property Investment industry for over 16 years and I’m often asked this question, “How do you actually spot a Property Spruiker?”. Lots of people talk about property spruikers but what actually is it? In my view, there’s actually three, I guess, people that you can take your information from in this property investment industry. The first person is the Salesperson who is not pretending to be anything other than a salesperson that’s being employed by the developer to sell their product. They sit typically in the sales office, they invite enquiry and they try to sell one of the developer’s product whether it is an off the plan apartment or a house and land package, they are very very clear on what they do. On the other side of the equation, you got the advisor. The true property investment advisor who has no stocklist, no agenda, they want to find out exactly what is going on for the investor so they can work out what tailored solution they need to provide on behalf of the property investor. And then you’ve got this grey area in between.
