Episode 022 | Q&A – Building & Pest Inspection, Rentvesting and Next Wage Growth Hotspot

Its Questions and Answers time! Thanks for all the suggestions on new topics to cover in this podcast. For today’s episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be addressing questions from:

  • Building and Pest Inspection question from Mark : How do I find a good quality building and pest inspector and with the property market being so hot with auctions at the moment, how do I ensure I don’t burn through my deposit money when constantly missing out at auctions?  I could end up wasting thousands on inspections until I actually win at auction! Should I try doing it myself and find a friend or family member with some building knowledge or use one of the smartphone apps?
  • Rentvesting question from Ryan : What are your thoughts on the property investor him or herself to buy and live in their own PPR or to rent? Obviously both have advantages, a place to call home or the ability to keep investing with out loosing potential borrowing capacity.
  • Next Wage Growth Hotspot from David : As mentioned on previous podcasts, investors will want to avoid “glass ceilings” in terms of capped wage growth in certain areas.  Given the changing Australian economy (more knowledge-based), are there particular areas of Australia in which you expect to see wage growth occurring?

When to Conduct a Building and Pest Inspection?

 

In Episode 22 of this podcast, Bryce and Ben answers some of our listeners’ questions. One of the question is on Building and Pest Inspection; when do you conduct one and how do you make sure you don’t spend all your deposits on these inspections without actually securing the property. At the end of the day, we believe that it is mandatory to have a building and pest inspection done before you sign on the dotted lines because you don’t want to be buying the wrong asset. But the key thing here is to time it well. Bryce Holdaway explains more.

What is Rentvesting and Is it for You?

 

In Episode 22 of this podcast, Bryce and Ben answers some of our listeners’ questions. One of the question is on Rentvesting and if it is a good option for property investors.  There are a lot of investors out there who would like to continue renting in an area because they couldn’t afford the properties in that area. But at the same time, that shouldn’t stop their desire to invest their surplus money. How will it work?
