Episode 037 | Understanding the Scarcity factor in Property Investment

Scarcity. It is one of the three filters in our asset selection criteria and you’ve probably heard Bryce and Ben talking about it numerous times in previous podcasts. In this current market condition, it is more important than ever to ensure you nailed the scarcity factor right. But how do you determine if a property is scarce or not?

Ep 37 Podcast - Understanding the scarcity factor in property investmentIn this episode, our hosts will be breaking the scarcity factor into two parts and will be sharing their very own “Scarcity Scale”. As mentioned previously, location usually does the heavy-lifting on the performance of an asset so, Bryce and Ben will be starting with area/location (right side of the scale) and then move on to the property type.

Seven Mistakes Property Investor Make

 

In Episode 32 (Investing in a Changing Market), Bryce and Ben talks about the changes in the property market, recent lending regulations and how investors can react to the changing environment. In this video, Bryce explains some of the investing mistakes that he’s seen investors make.

The first mistake is this unwavering belief that all property doubles in value. We’ve mentioned it over and over again, not all properties are the same. Even if you are buying two identical property in the same suburb, their growth performance might differ because of their location; what’s next to them and are they on the main road? So it’s not as if you can put your name on a title and sit back and enjoy the equity and rental yield. It’s not that easy.

Watch this video to find out the other six mistakes property investor make.

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 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.
