Property Market Swingers Report | April 2018

Ever wondered if a certain city has reached its peak, or if another has finally bottomed? Well, we’ve calculated the average LocationScore for Australia’s 20 most significant urban areas over the last 3 years.

Now you can see which macro markets are swinging up or down. LocationScore is a mark out of 100 for the level of demand relative to supply in a residential property market. The higher demand is with respect to supply, the higher the LocationScore.

Episode 165 | Royal Commission’s Role in the Lending Sector and Q&A on Improving Loan Serviceability, Sell v Hold Strategy and Investing in Shares

Just a heads up, folks: we’re tackling a couple of serious topics today!

Because, not only are we diving into the world of the Banking Royal Commission (and what they do), we’re also answering a few voicemail messages about how to best service your loan, what to look out for if you considering investing in shares and having a crack at the million dollar question: should you sell or hold??

Yep, Ben will be donning on his Chair of PICA hat to address some of these topics, especially when it comes to choosing your mortgage broker wisely and making sure, as property investors our assets and financial wellbeing are well protected!

 

As part of this, we will be dropping the “F” word… Fraud.

It should go without saying, DON’T go there… but if you find yourself taking dodgy advice, you could find yourself in boiling water too. And remember — for the folks that haven’t signed up yet — you can get an individual Membership of PICA for as little as $5 to lobby government regulations and help us get rid of the “bad eggs” and spruikers responsible!

 

So, let’s jump into the SpeakPipe Q’s:

Question from Nick (from New Zealand) about Selling or Holding a House and Land Package:

I purchased a house and land package in Landsdale, Perth in 2012. It’s next to the parks, next to the school; it’s a beautiful place with nice places around it — should I play the long game and hold onto it? Or should I look at selling it & placing my money elsewhere? It’s cash flow neutral, so it’s not costing me anything. It’s rented out, I’m paying the debt down through my own cash flow… the only other thing is, I’m at university so if I sell it, I won’t be able to get another place — I wouldn’t be able to get a mortgage — for 2 years until I graduate. I know it’s a million dollar question — but should I sell it or hold it?

 

Question from Will about serviceability concerns with current lending regulations:

We’ve got a current portfolio of currently 3 properties, looking to buy our 4th and final property in late 2018. I’m a little bit concerned about serviceability since the new APRA rules? have been brought in with the big banks. I was wondering if there were any practical things we could do to improve our serviceability? The second part to the question: Is there anything we can do to increase serviceability with second-tier lenders and third tier lenders?

 

Question about shares from Jamie:

Through your podcast, Rich Dad, Poor Dad. In the book, it talks about using shares to raise a deposit to purchase property. I was wondering if you were aware of any podcasts or books or any other resources that are similar to your own podcast but talk about trading shares? It’s something that is less tangible than property and I have a harder time understanding it.

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!)
