How To Spot A Property Spruiker?

 

The issue about Property Spruikers is not a new one but a lot of investors out there are still unaware about it and as a result, receiving bad property investment advice. With this in mind, Bryce started this How to Session by defining what is a spruiker and describe some of the common ways to spot one. Here’s a snippet of the video:

I’ve been in this Property Investment industry for over 16 years and I’m often asked this question, “How do you actually spot a Property Spruiker?”. Lots of people talk about property spruikers but what actually is it? In my view, there’s actually three, I guess, people that you can take your information from in this property investment industry. The first person is the Salesperson who is not pretending to be anything other than a salesperson that’s being employed by the developer to sell their product. They sit typically in the sales office, they invite enquiry and they try to sell one of the developer’s product whether it is an off the plan apartment or a house and land package, they are very very clear on what they do. On the other side of the equation, you got the advisor. The true property investment advisor who has no stocklist, no agenda, they want to find out exactly what is going on for the investor so they can work out what tailored solution they need to provide on behalf of the property investor. And then you’ve got this grey area in between.

Episode 009 | Buying Counter Cyclical

Last episode, we mentioned about Investment Stock vs. Investment Grade Properties and following that line of conversation, Bryce and Ben emphasized that some investors are just snatching up investment stocks now because they think that the property market is heating up and hence, are afraid of missing out. So this week, Bryce and Ben talk about understanding the property market trend and buying counter cyclical instead of chasing for properties which is potentially at the peak of their cycle already. This could potentially mean borderless investing for some of us and is especially true in Sydney where the property value seems to have overshoot the fair value.

 

Episode 009 - Buying Counter Cyclical - Core logic RP DataWhat investors also need to remember is that each state has its own cycle but it’s not always easy to determine where the market is currently at. So how do you know if you are buying counter cyclical? A good source of information is the CoreLogic Monthly Housing & Economic Chart Pack where you get to see how the property market in each state had performed for the last 30 years.

Episode 007 | Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property

Ep 007 - Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property - The Property Couch - Property Investing in AustraliaIn this episode, Bryce and Ben answered one of our listener’s question on whether studios or one bedroom apartments are good investment properties. This a great question and is often asked by many especially when we are seeing a surge in apartments around the city area. Technically, we are looking at this question in two parts. The first part is about understanding whether a studio or one bedroom apartment is a good choice of investment? And the second part is; are they are good investments if they are in the city?

Before we start discussing their potential as investment properties, we also need to understand the difference between a studio and one bedroom apartment. Bryce and Ben started this podcast by defining these types of asset class, the regulations surrounding them and how do they fare as an investment property. Listen to this podcast to find out more.
