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?

Negative Gearing vs. Positive Gearing

 

You’ve probably heard Episode 21: The Negative Gearing Debate in Australia but do you understand what they mean and what kind of investment strategies are they? There are some who swears by the profitability of a positive gearing strategy whilst other sneer at the amount of tax that the investor had to pay. Well, The Property Couch hosts believe that there are pros and cons of each strategy and it all comes down to which strategy fits your current situation better. If you aren’t familiar with the basic concept of negative and positive gearing, and are keen to learn more, this video from Ben will be perfect for you!

Money Magazine – Earn $2500 a Week at Retirement

Money Cover Story - March 2013 - The Property Couch earn 2500 a week at retirementAs mentioned in Episode 20 | Science of Asset Selection – The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant, here’s the article that Bryce wrote on Money Magazine: Earn $2500 A Week at Retirement in March 2013.

 

Here’s a snippet of the article:

How often have you found yourself picturing a retirement where you’re enjoying regular overseas holidays, spending your spare time with your grandkids and leisurely filling up your days doing all the things you love? We all have but we’re brought down to earth quickly by reports suggesting there won’t be enough money for a comfortable retirement. Perhaps even worse, some of us will have to work much longer than planned.

So the idea of creating a $2500-a-week passive income for a life in retirement free of debt ($130,000pa in today’s money) could be thought a stretch of the imagination. This would put you in the highest bracket of retirement earnings in the country and, according to the latest census (2011), would provide you with more than double the average total household income of $63,960.

The goal is achievable

Nevertheless, after looking at three typical households – a late-20s single, a mid-30s couple with two young children and a mid-40s couple with two teenagers – that have never invested in property, and carefully considering if it’s possible to achieve this passive income of $2500 a week, it’s exciting to know it can be done with low to moderate risk and potentially minimal impact on their current standard of living.

The big question is, how?

Four Ways a Property Investor will Pay

 

With all the educational materials from this podcast to articles and videos that Bryce and Ben provides, a lot of property investors have an impression that we are encouraging them to DIY when it comes to investing in property. The fact is, we are not. Instead, what we are hoping to achieve is to raise awareness on how the industry works and help investors understand the process more and hopefully, when their advisor consulted them on an issue, the investors would make a better decision. So in this video, Bryce explains what are the Four Ways a Property Investor will Pay. Start watching it today.
