Episode 041 | The Moving Parts of Cash Flow Management (Money & Wealth Accumulation Model)

Money & Wealth Accummulation Model - FinalThis week on The Property Couch, Bryce and Ben discuss about the moving parts of a cash flow management strategy. As compared to Episode 3 (Four Pillars of Mastery – Cash Flow Management) where we talked about the flow of money, this podcast is mainly about the Money and Wealth Accumulation Model. It includes the variables and assumptions to consider when modelling sophisticated wealth outcomes. As this topic can be fairly detailed, we strongly recommend our listeners to have the diagram open while listening to the podcast.

We will also be answering this question from Bradden:
You often refer to paying down debt during your talks as a means of creating passive income. Is there a strategy of paying down debt on your rental properties? Is it just as simple as paying P&I? Do you only start paying down debt once you have finished your accumulation phase? Does this only happen when you start to sell one of your properties? I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on paying down debt.
PS: Ben’s not a bad bloke for a Collingwood supporter.

 

This topic is also discussed in Part Three (Section 10) of our book: The Armchair Guide to Property Investing. For those who have the book, you can also refer to page 219 for additional reference. And here’s the video mentioned in the podcast:

Episode 004 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Borrowing Power

Episode 004 of The Property Couch is a continuation of our Four Pillars of Mastery series. Last episode we talked about Cash Flow Management and how it is the first step to your property investment journey. Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley also shared a Flow of Money diagram to illustrate their points. In this episode, they talked about the Borrowing Power. Once you know how much surplus you have at the end of each month then the next step it to know how high is your borrowing power so you can go ahead and buy an investment property. But it’s not as easy as going into a bank or a mortgage broker and get a loan set up. It’s never easy, isn’t it?

If you are serious about building wealth via property investment, then you need to make sure you plan ahead in terms of choosing the right package and structuring your loan correctly.

Episode 003 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Cash Flow Management

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the four areas that each property investor needs to master. Property Investment is not just a transaction. There is a science behind it and in this episode, Bryce and Ben disclose the Property Investment Formula and how an investor can use it. They started off with the most complicated area: Cash Flow Management. Why is it the most complicated? That’s because cash flow management requires a lot of planning, observation and discipline from the investors themselves. In other parts of the Four Pillars of Mastery, you can get help from professionals but in this area, you need to be able to do it yourself because the advisor can only give you an indication not your actual number. Cash flow management demands a lot of time and effort but it is the first step to building your property portfolio and very likely the most important step. Listen to this podcast to find out more.
