Episode 031 (Part 2) | Checklist to Getting A Great Property Manager – Chat with Carolyn Wright

In this second part of Episode 31 with Carolyn Wright from Your Property Manager, we look at one of our listeners’ question on managing rental through the property manager, what to expect and how to deal with queries for maintenance.

As mentioned in Part 1, getting a good or bad property manager can make a big impact on your wealth position but what are the characteristics of a good property manager? Our hosts  and Carolyn list out some of the key roles that a property manager should be doing and what kind of expectations investor should have when finding one. The first tip on this part is setting up the right rental rates. Property managers are in the market all the time, meeting both investors and tenants and having access to tools that provide those data. A good property manager will know what rate to list your property at that would make sure you get a fair market value and minimise your vacancy rate. Listen to this podcast to find out the rest of the checklist.

Episode 031 (Part 1) | Story of an Investor and Lessons Learnt along the Way – Chat with Carolyn Wright

This week on the Property Couch, we’ve invited Carolyn Wright from Your Property Manager to talk about her own personal experience as a property investor. Bryce and Ben will also be sharing the lessons that most property investors learn along the way, particularly during the post purchase process.

Episode 031 (Part 1) | Story of an Investor and Lessons Learnt along the Way - Chat with Carolyn WrightGetting a property portfolio plan and buying an investment property is only half of the whole journey. At the end of the day, if tenants aren’t moving in, then you could potentially be facing a fair amount of out-of-pocket expenses. That is why having a property manager and understanding the process that they go through is important. Unfortunately, a lot of investors feel otherwise. Start listening to this podcast to find out what our hosts and Carolyn have gone through both as property investors themselves and in their professional role.

Episode 030 (Part 2) | What is Gentrification and Signs to look out for – Chat with Peter Koulizos

Following from Part 1 of Episode 30 (Five Golden Rules of Property Investment), our hosts continue on to talk about a topic that Peter Koulizos is current researching on: Suburb Gentrification. Previously in episode 26, Bryce and Ben had briefly touched on this topic and in this episode, they elaborate it further.

Gentrification in general means wealthier people moving into an area and in Australia, the gentrification process varies across different states. Most people are able to see once the process nears the completion stage or sometimes, when it has gentrified but Bryce, Ben and Peter discuss about the signs that you can look for which indicate the start of this process.

Tune in to find out more.

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.
