Money Magazine – Earn $2500 a Week at Retirement

Money Cover Story - March 2013 - The Property Couch earn 2500 a week at retirementAs mentioned in Episode 20 | Science of Asset Selection – The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant, here’s the article that Bryce wrote on Money Magazine: Earn $2500 A Week at Retirement in March 2013.


Here’s a snippet of the article:

How often have you found yourself picturing a retirement where you’re enjoying regular overseas holidays, spending your spare time with your grandkids and leisurely filling up your days doing all the things you love? We all have but we’re brought down to earth quickly by reports suggesting there won’t be enough money for a comfortable retirement. Perhaps even worse, some of us will have to work much longer than planned.

So the idea of creating a $2500-a-week passive income for a life in retirement free of debt ($130,000pa in today’s money) could be thought a stretch of the imagination. This would put you in the highest bracket of retirement earnings in the country and, according to the latest census (2011), would provide you with more than double the average total household income of $63,960.

The goal is achievable

Nevertheless, after looking at three typical households – a late-20s single, a mid-30s couple with two young children and a mid-40s couple with two teenagers – that have never invested in property, and carefully considering if it’s possible to achieve this passive income of $2500 a week, it’s exciting to know it can be done with low to moderate risk and potentially minimal impact on their current standard of living.

The big question is, how?

Episode 019 | Four Ways an Investor will Pay

Last week on Episode 18 | What is A Buyers Agent and Do You Need One, Bryce promised that he would talk about the Four Ways an Investor will Pay. So this week, he and Ben listed them out.

The first is Buying the Wrong Asset. We’ve mentioned about this many time before; Asset Selection is crucial. It is the whole reason why you want to invest in property because it would provide you with the best returns. If you start your portfolio with the wrong asset, there is a high chance that the rest of your portfolio would be affected. But sometimes, when an investor is exposed to different opinions and when they are under pressure or assumption that they need to act now, logic tends to get out of the window. It happens to a lot people but it is not something that is unavoidable. Listen to Bryce and Ben in this podcast to learn what’s the other three ways a property investor will pay.

Also, The Property Couch is hoping to get nominated for the Investor’s Choice Award 2015 for the category: Property Educator/Mentor. We would like to spread the word out on the podcast so that we can help more people avoid making bad investment choices and avoid buying the wrong asset. So if you think we are doing a good job, please do nominate us here.
