Episode 128 | How a Country Boy Went From a Butcher to Property Success – Chat with Duncan McPherson, Director of Nelson Alexander

That’s right guys. Duncan McPherson, Director at Nelson Alexander (also a successful property consultant, auctioneer, founder of Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation and a property investor himself) started his roots in a small country town as, well, a butcher. Yep—his story is absolutely a white-butcher’s-coat to wealth-building-creation!

Duncan is a family man, centred on honest and committed customer service, who has built his riches on sharing what he knows and paying it forward, giving almost $2.5 million dollars to local charities in the process.

On the couch to share his wisdom, humbleness and good humour with the boys, Duncan explains:

  • How he came to Melbourne as a butcher and ended up as highly-successful real estate figure
  • Why one man in a black BMW, a shiny suit and a bad attitude was likely the catalysis for his career change
  • How Nelson Alexander, since 1971, has transformed the face of real estate services, especially in the Northern suburbs
  • How he approaches property investment with 20+ years’ experience
  • What are his criteria for a successful asset selection?
  • Which one is a “better” investment: a house or a townhouse?
  • What “buying land and airspace” means and how you can value from it
  • What is “The Beef Wellington” to add value to your property?
  • What to look for in a quality real estate agent and how to outsmart them
  • How many off-market properties exist without you even knowing they’re For Sale? (Hint: it’s more than you think!)
  • The inevitability of housing affordability—has it always been tough breaking into the market?
  • When will he consider buying a property with someone else?
  • What he looks for in an investment property and what always impresses him
  • The mentors who have changed and continue to change his life.

 

We really, really think you’ll benefit from this one guys. It’s one thing to hear tips from the best in the business; but another thing entirely to hear it from someone who made it there from the humblest of beginnings!

Episode 125 (Part 2) | Everything You Need To Know About Picking The Next Hotspot – Chat with Jeremy Sheppard

Did we deliver on the gold in PART ONE?

Jeremy Sheppard, also the Director of Research at Select Residential Property, definitely has a serious knack for data collection and analysis, doesn’t he? (Side note: he actually calls himself the “property-data Nutcase”. Yep.)

Chasing the tail of Part One, PART TWO unpacks the remaining 3 of the 8 fundamental indicators that affect demand and supply.

The last 3 are:

  1. Vendor Discount
  2. Rental Yield

Yep. Did we warn you that this episode could be quite overwhelming? Stay with us.

It’s been no secret that we’ve been waiting A LONG TIME to share this episode with you because … LocationScore is finally live!!

 

So, what is LocationScore?

Jeremy met with The Property Couch’s Bryce and Ben back in 2016 and that led to their creation of this online property research tool.

All of the indicators you hear mentioned in this episode are exactly what LocationScore’s algorithm measures! They are the tools that sniff out supply and demand levels of all across the country, changing the face of Capital Growth, and investing, forever!

So, what if we could tell you the suburbs—right down to the specifics of houses and units—that are saturated in scarcity, landing you the BETTER LOCATIONS to increase your chances of making real returns in the long term?

This is what LocationScore, pioneered by Jeremy, Ben and Bryce, has been designed to do for you.

These indicators are the wires that power LocationScore. And with over 15,000 suburbs in the Australian market, Jeremy, Ben and Bryce continue to untangle them for you, hoping to fix the headache of finding investment grade suburbs and, in turn, crucial asset selection.

Let’s be honest: there’s obviously a lot to tell you.

We hope you like this one guys!

Episode 125 (Part 1) | Everything You Need To Know About Picking The Next Hotspot – Chat with Jeremy Sheppard

We’ve been building this one up a bit haven’t we? But TODAY is the day we’ve got Jeremy Sheppard on the couch! Jeremy—himself an investor with 16 properties in his own portfolio—explains his years of passion in data collection, analysis and research into the levels of supply and demand (across every market and 15,000 suburbs in Australia). This passion pioneered the DSR Formula and the inception of DSRData.com.au.

 

How it works (nutshell):

Supply and demand are the only things that affect the future price of any good. If you know the exact level of supply and demand in a market, you can roughly predict its capital growth direction—up or down/making you money, or not.

But how do you identify the level, and how can specific variables influence the market’s movement?

 

There are 8 proven indicators that measures EXACTLY WHERE demand exceeds supply, honing in on where the capital growth lives.

And in PART ONE, 5 of the 8 key indicators will be explained by the boys. They are:

  1. Stock on Market
  2. Auction Clearance Rates
  3. Online Search Interest
  4. Days on Market
  5. Vacancy Rate (and how to calculate your own vacancy rate)

 

Just listen. We promise more gold than ever.
