Bonusisode | Listen everyone… This Is Serious!

Housing Affordability. APRA. Investor’s Lending. Super Property Deposit Debate.

These are headline news for the last few weeks which have been monopolising the business section of most press for some time now. So, we don’t think we can wait any longer either!

Now, what did they chat about today? You would be expecting conversation around the long-term sustainability of the Australian Property Market, an upcoming correction and who will be affected; APRA’s move on investment lending; changes on interest-only loans and how it will affect some borrowers out there; implementing Money SMARTS during these times; relationship between migration and the economy; the Superannuation Property Deposit Debate and more.

Let us forewarn you that this Bonusisode is not as light as our usual episodes. This time, Bryce and Ben discuss some critical housing and political issues and as usual, the commentary in this show is general in nature and is an opinion comment by both of them. It does not take into account the particular investment objectives or financial situation of any potential listeners, and you should always consult a qualified professional advisor before making any investment decisions.

Episode 108 | Five Ways To Improve Affordability

Back in Episode 102, Bryce and Ben discussed if we are facing an affordability issue and when Jan Somers appeared on our show last month, she mentioned that her aunt was also concerned about housing affordability back in the 1950s. Now, with the Federal Budget just a couple of months away, this topic appears yet again, and it seems to be the favourite amongst our politicians.

This time, the debate is about improving affordability for first home buyers. Now, don’t get us wrong. The Property Couch believes in the Great Australian Dream and owning your home. But as mentioned before, your first home will not be luxurious nor will it tick all the criteria of your dream home. This is about setting the right expectation because you would get to your dream home, and you would be able to get that quarter acre house eventually. But it will not happen overnight. You need to work for it, and you need to be smart with your decisions especially when it comes to money and planning for the future. Your first home, may not be your dream home but this does not mean that your second or third home wouldn’t be.

That is why education around property and awareness on the risk of investing in property is so important. This is one of the suggestions that Bryce and Ben chat about to improve affordability in the Australian Property Market. Tune in to find out the rest.

A few of our listeners have asked us about Fractional Property Investment; what is it and how does it actually works. It is a relatively new investing concept and often, people are confused if it’s investing in shares or property especially when it comes to ownership of the property. So we’ve invited Anthony Millet, CEO of BRICKX, to come on the show and share his expertise! Appointed as the CEO back in April 2016, Anthony comes from an investment banking background, had been the Chief Operating Officer of a leading global online sports retailer and is active investor himself. So for today’s podcast, the three of them will be chatting about:

  • What motivated Anthony into this industry and his investing story
  • What does fractional property investment means and how did it start in Australia
  • Who owns the property in the portfolio and what rights do the investors have
  • How does it work and how much returns would you get
  • What type of assets are included in the portfolio and the asset selection criteria that’s in place
  • The regulatory requirements surrounding this investment product
  • Are gearing or leverage a consideration in fractional property investment
  • Is it possible to trade the ownership of the product and what are the technological platform available for investors to trade in

Episode 104 | 7 Ways To Lose Money In Property

After last week’s much-anticipated talk with Jan Somers who is an example of someone who has made many successful choices when building her 40 plus year old portfolio, today’s episode features Bryce and Ben discussing seven of the most common ways many of us lose money when investing in property. With key advice and some examples of how and why the choices we make as property investors can have a negative impact on our portfolios, the guys make sure to warn us and help us understand why these ways can cost you money rather than make you more.

The first way to lose money in property is choosing the wrong location. As they have mentioned in countless episodes, location does 80% of the heavy lifting when purchasing property so making sure you have the right location is one of the key things to look for. It covers many areas such as amenities, human interest and practicality; so getting it right means a lot to your portfolio. To find out the rest of the points, make sure you tune in to this latest episode!

And don’t forget, we will be at the Melbourne Property Buyer Expo this weekend so if you are around, do come and say hi! 🙂
