It’s the day in our week we most look forward to… Happy Podcast Day, folks!

And, you betcha: this episode is ESSENTIAL!

Why?

If you’re a regular listener of the show (legend), you know that we go on and on about making sure you head back to our earliest episodes (pre-studio & pre-“professional podcast hosts”), because the information we shared in our glory days is vital. It’s foundational. It’s absolutely the name-of-the-game in property investing!

That’s why today we’re revisiting The Four Pillars of Mastery….. the ABCD of Property Investing. Because now, more than ever, they are going to determine the success of your property portfolio.

What are they again? (Click the link for their full episode).

ABCD. Memorise them. Make sure you’re intimate with every detail and action them in 2018.

 

Before we explain how you can achieve all this, we want to let you know that if you missed our Throwback Thursday this morning — either you haven’t checked your inbox yet or are yet to register for our free stuff — we gave you Dr Danika Wright’s slides, Controlling the housing asset bubble: Affordability, financial stability and regulation, which she presented at the Affordability Conference  late last year. So, if you’re interested in The Housing Bubble Debate or Supply and Demand, we suggest you check it out. You can access it here.

Episode 152 | Bad News for The Australian Property Market

We’re sorry to bring you Bad News while you’re on holidays.

Unfortunately, we have heard some negative talk out there and, well, we think it’s best you know. So, today’s podcast is a little on the “doom and gloom” side, we’re afraid.

We’re talking about the correction in the market. We’ve all seen the property prices in Sydney come down a bit, and we’ve all heard (perhaps too much) about the Bubble…. Is today the day it finally burst?

 

A longtime listener from Singapore, Saxton, left us a rather distressing voicemail message:

“I want to ask you about the article that was published by Matt Barrie the CEO of freelancer in Australia where he painted a very negative and bleak future about Australia’s future prospects and described the Australian property market as a bubble built upon a bubble, built upon a bubble; namely mining and commodities. Anyway, it’s a long article and I would love to hear your negation on some of his gloomy outlook and why property is still a good bet moving forward.”

 

If you’ve read the article… you’ll know it’s pretty bleak. Also what’s interesting is that Matt Barrie isn’t a property expert — note that his business has nothing to do with propertyand on social media channels he is, which makes sense, an “influencer”. And influencers are good at doing just that.

But, at the end of the day everyone is entitled to an opinion.

More importantly, who is right?

 

What’s about to unfold:

  • Are the conditions that precede a bubble “popping” finally here?
  • What happens if the market drops 30%?
  • What is money and wealth built on?
  • What are the biggest banks LVR and why does this matter?
  • How is Australia’s lending system differ from the rest of the world?
  • Is Australia’s economic climate stable?
  • What is “short selling”?
  • How can you tell when an agenda is influencing an opinion?
  • Why do we keep going on about supply and demand?
  • What is “irrational exuberance” and why is contributing to the bad news?
  • Why is now (perhaps more than ever) time to look back at your property fundamentals?
  • Is interest rate the King in all of this?
  • What’s the future of the Australian Property Market?
  • What do you need to start telling people today?
