Episode 028 | Is the Property Market Oversupplied & What’s Happening in the Lending Sector?

With dwelling approvals remaining close to record high levels and the latest housing credit data suggesting a slowing investment credit growth, will this lead to an oversupply in the Australian property market? On top of that, how is the lending sector affected by the recent changes put in place by Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA)? All these factors are a cause for concern for most property investors especially when there is a lack of awareness in this industry.

So in this episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be discussing if our property market is oversupplied and which areas will be affected by this market movement. They will also be discussing the recent changes made by APRA, how will it impact property investors and what can investors do to ensure their property plan remains on track.

Episode 020 | Science of Asset Selection – The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant

There is a high chance that when you are looking to buy an investment property, you would already have a few factors to consider. This time on The Property Couch Podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley discuss about these factors and how it can be a framework or rather the Science of Asset Selection which they called: The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant.

Ep 20 - science of asset selection Buyers Decision Quadrant 2The whole concept is quite simple and most investors would have gone through this decision quadrant in one way or another. But the secret is understanding which part of the quadrant can be compromised and which part is absolutely non-negotiable. One thing to bear in mind is; finding an investment property that fits all the pieces of the quadrant is really slim and most of the time, you would need to compromise slightly. Listen to the podcast to find out more.

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.
