Episode 180 | Building A Portfolio in a Changing Market – LIVE Q & A in Melbourne

The Australian property market collapsing. Housing market under the pump. Melbourne’s property downfall. House sales hit new low…

… folks, with headlines like these, we may as well call it a day, bid you farewell in a foreign language like old times, and exchange the ol’ investor returns for an earlier-than-planned retirement!

Wait, why would we say such a thing?

Well, you might’ve noticed — the market’s corrected and it’s making a LOT of folks out there nervous! And why shouldn’t it?

You don’t want to fork out the big bucks (probably the most you’ve ever spent) on a property that’s going to end in little-to-no return come market crash, right? Not to mention, you don’t want this said “investment” to wind up in an economic tsunami, which by the way, WILL happen when life follows the fate of a catchy news headline.

So… is that what’s really what’s happening here? Is the market seriously “bottoming out”… because, as far as we see it folks, we’re sitting pretty happy where we are!

BUT for the record folks, there ARE things you need to keep in mind come a market correction (whether you’re a current investor or just getting started)… so, what do you need to know?

We shared all of the exclusive hacks and current market news in our Melbourne LIVE Podcast last week… and we’re bringing the love to you right now!

Episode 164 | Q&A – How to Avoid Poor Loan Structure

It’s Q & A Day, folks!!

Off the back of last night’s webinar, “7 Deadly Sins of Building a Property Portfolio” we’ve got plenty of questions leftover that we reckon are going to help you with ALL THINGS LOANS and INVESTMENT LENDING!!!

Before it kicks off though … we’ve got a BIG announcement (well, big news for Bryce!!)… so make sure you keep an ear out!

So, we’ve got SIX questions to get through, which will help you in avoiding poor loan structure and more importantly, your planning stage of building a property portfolio!

 

Question from Mark:

I have a PPR mortgaged at the moment, as does my girlfriend. We wish in the future to turn both into investment properties and buy a further property to live in long term. Should we be spending money doing any works to the properties that we currently live in? Or should we spend the bare minimum and save every cent for our “together” house?

 

Question from Laudy:

I thought they’d changed the PPR loans and didn’t allow interest only loans anymore — how can this be done?

 

Question from Dean

Can you use equity in your investment properties to wipe out your PPR mortgage?

 

Question from Chris:

I understand the concept of “tapping into property 1’s equity” but HOW do we do it? Is a Line of Credit an appropriate method? Is this with the same bank or a different bank? Thanks guys, appreciate the help!

 

Question from Matt:

In the case studies it shows the debt on investment properties being paid off over time. When do you switch from IO to P&I? Should you refinance after 5 years to extend IO period as long as possible or switch to P&I when your cash flow allows?

 

Question from Shanki:

Regarding loan structure, can I use the equity from 1 property to pay the deposit for 2 separate investment properties? Is it similar to collateral?

 

 

p.s. Here are all the links for today’s podcast!

 

 

 

Episode 163 | Infrastructure: What’s the Game Changer for Property?

We’re going off the cuff today, folks! Yep, there’s been no prep behind this podcast… BUT we guarantee it’s still going to be golden!

Why?? It all started (yesterday) when Ben created a little pop quiz for the staff at our company… and his question is:

What is the No.1 infrastructure needed to grow property prices?

Based on the banter that spread through our office, the answer might also surprise you!!
So, let’s drill it down to these two points:

  1. How are megacities built?
  2. What’s the connection between infrastructure and property prices?

 

Here’s the deal:

 

Stick around for Ben’s Did You Know … you’ll find out the projected population growth for Australia’s cities (this might influence where you invest!)

Missed our Facebook Live yesterday?

We announced a Free Live Webinar — The 7 Deadly Sins of Building a Property Portfolio: The hidden habits undermining your success (and how you can overcome them)”!

P.S. This episode’s a true glimpse of what an overheard convo between Bryce and Ben sounds like! Gold!!!!
