Folks, let’s just come right out and say it… getting a Building and Pest Inspection is very, very important if you’re going to buy a property. So much so that we’d go as far as to use the word “vital”. Yep, this is true for both homeowners and investors!!

So, we think it’s in your BEST interests to listen to what today’s guest, Andrew-Mackie Smith, Principal Consultant of BuildingPro (Building and Pest Reports) and author of Building Success: Why Property Investors Need Building Inspections has to say about it.

The reports that we’ve combined are…

  • Australian Population Map – This population map resource outlines Australian demographics – city by city, state by state.
  • Sydney Vs Melbourne – Comparing the most significant data of Sydney and Melbourne in a visualised infographic to show how these global cities measure up.
  • Australia’s Household Income and Wealth Distribution – This infographic of annual household income by quintiles shows the spread of total earnings in Australia
  • Australian Income and Wealth Distribution by Generation – Exploring how both income and wealth is distributed across the generations of households in Australia and how it has been changing.
  • Live the Dream Report – FPA and McCrindle partnered to conduct new research into the regrets, dreams, and attitudes to matters of money and life across generations, genders and geographies. The new research shows almost one in four Australians (23%) believe they are ‘definitely’ or ‘mostly’ living the dream. These enviably content people are nearly three times more likely to seek the advice of a financial planner (24%) than those who describe themselves as not yet living the dream (9%)

Again, all of these reports and more are free for download on their website so please do check them out if you love what you see here.

Episode 185 | Will your Generation achieve “The Great Australian Dream”? — The Future of Australia’s Population, Retirement Expectations, And Other Things You Thought Were True – Chat with Mark McCrindle

Attention! Baby Boomers, Gen XYZ,  Alpha and everyone else — yep, that’s probably you — we have THE episode that just might teach you a thing or two about your generation, your next door neighbour’s generation, AND the next “smashed avocado” to take Australia by storm!

What are we talking about?

Folks, making himself comfortable on the couch today is Mark McCrindle, founder and Principle of McCrindle Research, and an award-winning social researcher, best-selling author, influential thought leader, and, wait for it… a demographer!

This is one topic that made all of us on the show super excited because as a demographer, Mark tracks emerging issues, researches social trends and sets the stage for Australia’s population — which is VERY handy if you want to know where the future’s heading, and why. Plus, he’s also the author of best-selling book, The ABC of XYZ, which opens the “can of worms” on each generation, their values and shares the story of a country centred on “the fair go”.

So, aside from learning the story behind the data, you’re about to hear all about Australia’s people, and our insights into property, retirement and wealth creation!

Oh, and Mark’s brought in his latest infographics and insight and everything — you can get all of them here — so get ready for a knowledge-packed episode! His team’s research into Australians living a successful life is one that you can’t miss as well! Just click here to download or fill in the form below and we’ll send it all to your email. 🙂
