Episode 024 | Seven Habits of Highly Effective Property Investors

Drawing from Stephen Covey’s book and as promised in the previous episode (Exit Strategy in Property Investment), this week our hosts talk about the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Property Investors. Some of our listeners have asked us before about having the right mindset when investing in property and this episode sort of ties in with that. Bryce and Ben lists out the seven habits that Dr. Covey talks about and explains how we can use it in property investment.

The first habit is to be proactive. As Bryce mentioned in the podcast, you won’t achieve Financial Freedom unless you take a step forward to make it happen. It is not going to happen by osmosis or by default. You need to get off your chair, overcome some conditioning and take action. Bryce and Ben will also be sharing some of the stories from the own personal journey as an investor and an advisor. Listen to the podcast to find out more.

Episode 023 | Exit Strategy in Property Investment

This week on The Property Couch podcast, Bryce and Ben talk about planning ahead and have an Exit Strategy when investing in property. As Stephen Covey once said, “Begin with the End in Mind”. We think this concept can be applied to property investors as well.

Ep 23 Exit Strategy in Property Investment - The Property Couch - Property investing Podcast 2Now, there are a few exit strategies out there and as we’ve always emphasized, each household is unique and hence each investor’s exit strategy would be different. But generally, there are two main categories; either you buy and sell or you buy and hold. Under these categories, there are sub-categories and different scenarios where it’ll suit you better. Bryce and Ben will be discussing about these exit strategies today so make sure you tune in!

Also, the Money Magazine Cover Story that we have been talking about is out. Grab one off the Newsstand today and let us know what you think!

Negative Gearing vs. Positive Gearing

Episode 018 | What is a Buyers Agent and Do You Need One?

We’ve all heard about real estate agents before but how much do you know about a Buyers Agent? Although this role is getting increasingly popular in Australia, not many investors are using one and some may not even know why they should use a buyers agent to start with. Ep 18 The Property Couch tips - What is a Buyers Agent and Do You Need OneSo this time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley help our listeners understand what is a Buyers Agent, what do they actually do, how do you find a good one and do you need one when you are buying your investment property?

 

A great analogy that Bryce used in this podcast is an investment property is like a bricks and mortar bank account. It doesn’t need to be pretty and all. It only needs to be investment-grade. And one of they key advantages of using a Buyers Agent is that you leverage on the skills and experience of a professional to help you find the best possible property for you. Both Bryce and Ben are experienced, qualified and licensed buyers agent in multiple states across Australia and in this podcast they share some of their recent stories – the successes and the challenges they and their clients face. They will also be discussing about the role professional bodies such as REBAA and PIPA play in this space.

Episode 016 (Part 2) | 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia

Ep 16 The Property Couch - 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia Part 2In Part 1 of the 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia, Bryce and Ben talked about the Clarify, Evaluate and part of the Planning stage.

To recap, Clarify is collect information about yourself and to set your goals from the next five years up to retirement. Some of the questions that you need to answer are why invest in property, how much are you spending each month, how much savings do you have, how much do you want to retire with and so on.

Evaluate is to analyse these information and numbers that you’ve collected and pinpoint the shortcomings and identify the opportunities. Think about how you can save more, what is the status of your cash flow management, can you adjust your lifestyle choices to buy an investment property, is it time to refinance your home loan and more.

In this part of the 5 Essential Step to Property Investing in Australia, we move on to Plan, Implement and Manage. We all know that Planning is not easy especially if you are planning 30 years ahead. But if you don’t have a plan, you plan to fail. What’s more, you need to be able to implement your Property Portfolio Plan confidently and make sure you arrange regular review to determine how you are faring.
