Episode 083 | Do you think like a sophisticated Property Investor?

If you are new to property investment, don’t you want to know what the sophisticated property investors are doing? Why would you want to reinvent the wheels? It will certainly save you more time and money if you understand the norms and fundamentals from those who have already experienced the journey. So this time on The Property Couch podcast, our hosts will be discussing the practices of a sophisticated property investor.

Their discussion will be based on the recently released PIPA Annual Investor Sentiment Survey. It’s the only sentiment survey for property investors in Australia and has a unique sample of Australia’s property investment community. Distributed via PIPA’s extensive investor networks, it provides a rich insight into the views of Australia’s investors.

Some of the key findings discussed in this episode are:

  • What do investors feel about the long-term merits of real estate?
  • Does negative gearing really matter?
  • What kind of dwellings are the sophisticated property investor going for?
  • How much attention are they giving to the property market cycle?
  • Where do they get their advice from?

Episode 077 | Right Strategy in the Right Market at the Right Time

What is the possibility of investing in property with the right strategy, in the right market, at the right time? Well, that depends. Now, we know this sounds really vague but in order to determine that, one need to ask if they have the right understanding in the first place? Because it is very dangerous if the perception of a right strategy or a right market is wrong and you go ahead and build a property portfolio based on your assumptions. For example, if Alex believes that capital growth is the right strategy and buying within 5km radius from Melbourne CBD is the right market, then he would be in a very tricky situation because the supply at the moment is quite low (unless he has a very deep pocket).

So in this episode of The Property Couch podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley focuses on understanding what is considered as “the right market” and why it is important that you take the long view on where the market is going before committing to anything. Bryce and Ben will also be answering Maria’s question on cash flow management and an investor’s mindset. Here’s the question:

“Hi guys

Love the podcast and the book,  well-deserved success with both.

How do you draw the line between good cash flow management and depriving yourself of things you enjoy? My husband and I have always lived within our means and we now have two properties under our belt in Sydney, with plans to buy more. We’re in our thirties. But I’ve found that as we’ve come along the investing journey I’ve become increasingly preoccupied with spending less. I have no issues buying necessities, paying bills, or paying for things that benefit our investing or our health. I don’t blink an eye at spending on insurances, BA fees, etc, because those things are useful and necessary.

However, when contemplating discretionary lifestyle purchases, often costing less than $100 (you know, stuff you don’t need, but want) I spend weeks analysing whether to buy, to the extent that I’m spending too much energy on it. I guess I worry that if I spend $100 here and $100 there, I’ll just eat away at our cash buffers. What are your personal real life experiences with discretionary spending while trying to build a property portfolio? Did you and your family buy your toys and vices freely, or did you find yourself analysing every purchase?

I want to have the best cash flow position possible, but I want to have occasional frivolous luxuries too. I know I need some sort of mindset shift, but what does that shift look like?”

Episode 52 | A property investor’s journey and confidence in the Australian residential property market – Chat with Phillip Tarrant

It’s our One Year Anniversary!! 🙂

Time does pass rather quickly and if you’ve found this podcast from Episode 30 or something, we strongly recommend you to rewind a few episodes and start with Episode One. It used to be 15 minutes, so it wouldn’t take long to catch up.

For today’s episode, we are bringing in Phillip Tarrant, Director and Managing Editor of Sterling Publishing and host for the Smart Property Investment Show Podcast. Apart from his daily job, Phillip is also on the board of Property Investment Professional of Australia (PIPA) with Ben. But Bryce and Ben is not talking about his role in the media industry today. Instead, they are focusing on his journey as a property investor, what triggered him to invest in property, how did he purchase his first investment property and how confident he is with the Australian residential property market. The three of them will also be discussing about the recent 60 Minutes investigation, which air on Channel 9 last Sunday (21/02/2016).
