Episode 58 | Will apartments value drop by 50%?

In recent weeks, a few lenders have begin to tighten their terms and conditions on apartments in certain suburbs across Australia. Needless to say, some commentators are putting a blanket statement on the future of apartments and claims that they are looking rather bleak at the moment. However, how much impact will these changes have on apartments value and if so, will it affect all types of apartments?

Listeners that have followed this podcast since its inception would know about Bryce and Ben’s view on apartments. Whether it is a brand new one bedroom apartment in the city centre or an attractive off the plan deal, our hosts still prefer established apartments in great locations. As property investment advisor and buyer’s agents, they have advised hundreds of clients to invest in apartments so, are they worried about this lending restriction? Are they expecting a massive drop in apartments value and where are they seeing this happening? Listen to this podcast to find out more.

Episode 029 | Common Mistakes when Investing in Property

We’ve all made mistakes in life. Some are relatively harmless but when it comes to high value transactions such as investing in property, the stakes are higher. So this time on The Property Couch podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley list out a few common mistakes that they’ve seen people make in their investment journey.

The first mistake is underestimating the importance of having a good lending strategy and structure. One investment property will not be sufficient to provide you with a self funded retirement so in time, you will need to buy another one and if you messed up your lending structure from the start, you might not be able to achieve your full potential in your portfolio. One of the common regret that Bryce and Ben have heard before is the investor’s drive to look for lenders that offer them the least interest payable has clouded their decision for better borrowing power and eventually, a better asset.

Listen to this podcast to find out the other four mistakes that a property investor often make.

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.
