Episode 033 | Q&A – Investing with Equity, First Home Buyers Tips, Buy-Reconstruct-Sell Strategy and Leasing to Relatives

It’s Q&A time! In this episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be addressing some topics on:

  • Finance related question from Kat : Would you please explain more about using equity? E.g. I heard from a broker that one needs to refinance the loan on the existing property (PPOR or investment) – does this mean the old property and the new one to be purchased are tied together? Some suggest using Line of Credit to get equity out. To assess the equity available, does one first need to pay for a valuation report on the existing property?
  • Leverage question from Naomi : I am considering selling my investment property in order to pay off the mortgage on my family home leaving me debt free and with the ability to then use all the money I currently pay on the family home mortgage for investment purposes with tax deductible debt. Is this a good strategy? Is there a better alternative you would recommend?
  • Episode 033 | Q&A - Investing with Equity, First Home Buyers Tips, Buy-Reconstruct-Sell Strategy and Leasing to RelativesInvesting strategy questions from Andy : Investing for demolition and reconstruction vs capital gain. Is it worth buying an older property close to the coast however a little further out from the city to sit on with the view to demolish with a larger land size or to invest in a more expensive smaller property which could be a little closer to the city.
  • Buying a Home question from Tom : I’d love to hear a podcast on your advice to first home buyers – whether that be best ways to save for the deposit, traps to avoid, or some type of plan for young home buyers – for example I’ve just start work as a property valuer in Melbourne for the last 5 months, and my girlfriend of a few years finishes studies later this year and we have the hopes of buying our first home together in 18 months or so.
  • Investing question from Andrew : Guys, just wondering what your thoughts are on buying an investment property that is potentially going to be tenanted by a relative? A relative has their lease ending in a few months, and i see this as an opportunity to buy an investment with a secured tenant (all through the proper rental channels i.e REIQ rental agreement). I think the opportunity definitely outweighs the risks. What’s your thoughts?

Episode 032 | Investing in a Changing Market in Australia

Are we in a changing market? The Australian property market has had a great run but is it time to think about what happens when it cools down or even corrects itself. In Episode 32 of The Property Couch podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talks about property investing in a changing market. They started the podcast by discussing the signs and indicators of a changing market. As Ben mentioned in the podcast the leading indicators of a changing market is usually a month or six weeks behind. You’ll see a rush of supply come on and that exacerbates the small correction that will occur on top of the government interventions that are implemented via RBA and APRA.

Our hosts will also be discussing the type of properties that would be affected, the changes in interest rates and more. Tune in to the podcast to find out more!

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 025 | Q&A – High LVR, Capital Gains Tax, Cross Collateralisation and SMSF Property

Its Questions and Answers time! Thanks for all the suggestions on new topics to cover in this podcast. For today’s episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be addressing questions from:

  • High Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) question from Andy : As a relatively new investor, would you recommend gearing as many of my initial purchases at 90-95% LVR as possible to help get ahead early on and do you foresee a lot of the banks starting to restrict this type of lending going forward with the interest rates currently so low. If you do recommend it, how do we best manage the risk for the first few years until the properties grow and loans come down to the 80% mark?
  • The Property Couch - Property investing podcast - smsf propertyCapital Gain Tax (CGT) question from Paul : It would be great if an episode could cover “capital gain tax“. I have recently had to sell an investment property due to lifestyle decision but didn’t incur any charges as it was my first place. In future if I have to sell to upgrade to a bigger investment It would be great to know the CGT laws in each state.
  • Cross Collaterisation from Andrew : In recent Episode 20 you touched on cross collateralisation and while it is not the best option, I  was wondering if you could expand on where you might need to use, why you would use it, to what extent would you use it and how would you un-cross collateralise your portfolio?
  • SMSF and Property from Billy : I’m interested in using a Self Managed Super Fund to invest my super in property. I’d like to hear your opinions on this subject. Would you recommend SMSF Property or not?

Episode 017 | Who’s Your Personal Banker?

TPC Ep 17 - TipsThis time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley drilled down a little bit more on one of the Four Pillars of Mastery: Borrowing Power.

The theory of getting your finance right is to think about two to three properties or loans in advance whilst you are setting up the current one. But a lot of people won’t be able to do that simply because they don’t have the knowledge or experience to do so. Instead, they go to a bank or lender and hope that the banker will sort it out for them. They assumed that the person they dealt with will be their personal banker.  But that’s not necessarily true. The banker works for the bank and probably doesn’t have the capacity to conduct a thorough analysis on your loan strategy and structure. It’s something like going to the GP and asking them to perform a knee surgery. You wouldn’t do that. Listen to this podcast to find out who Bryce and Ben thinks should be your personal banker instead. They will also be discussing about cross-securitisation, stand alone lending and more.
