Episode 017 | Who’s Your Personal Banker?

TPC Ep 17 - TipsThis time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley drilled down a little bit more on one of the Four Pillars of Mastery: Borrowing Power.

The theory of getting your finance right is to think about two to three properties or loans in advance whilst you are setting up the current one. But a lot of people won’t be able to do that simply because they don’t have the knowledge or experience to do so. Instead, they go to a bank or lender and hope that the banker will sort it out for them. They assumed that the person they dealt with will be their personal banker.  But that’s not necessarily true. The banker works for the bank and probably doesn’t have the capacity to conduct a thorough analysis on your loan strategy and structure. It’s something like going to the GP and asking them to perform a knee surgery. You wouldn’t do that. Listen to this podcast to find out who Bryce and Ben thinks should be your personal banker instead. They will also be discussing about cross-securitisation, stand alone lending and more.

Episode 016 (Part 2) | 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia

Ep 16 The Property Couch - 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia Part 2In Part 1 of the 5 Essential Steps to Property Investing in Australia, Bryce and Ben talked about the Clarify, Evaluate and part of the Planning stage.

To recap, Clarify is collect information about yourself and to set your goals from the next five years up to retirement. Some of the questions that you need to answer are why invest in property, how much are you spending each month, how much savings do you have, how much do you want to retire with and so on.

Evaluate is to analyse these information and numbers that you’ve collected and pinpoint the shortcomings and identify the opportunities. Think about how you can save more, what is the status of your cash flow management, can you adjust your lifestyle choices to buy an investment property, is it time to refinance your home loan and more.

In this part of the 5 Essential Step to Property Investing in Australia, we move on to Plan, Implement and Manage. We all know that Planning is not easy especially if you are planning 30 years ahead. But if you don’t have a plan, you plan to fail. What’s more, you need to be able to implement your Property Portfolio Plan confidently and make sure you arrange regular review to determine how you are faring.

Episode 015 | Real Life Property Investing in Australia : Case Study

The Property Couch ep 15 Real Life Property Investing in Australia  Case StudyAs promised in our last episode (Ep 14 : Should we buy in a boom and are we in a property bubble?) this time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about a new topic suggested by Aaron, one of our valued listeners. He has provided us with a case study and we think it’s a great chance to discuss about real life property investing stories in Australia. Here’s a summary of the question:

“Why does some apartments that seem to tick all the boxes just don’t appreciate in price overtime? This block at Brunswick is close to the public transport, schools, cafes and lifestyle but based on the comparable sales, the apartments have only achieved very little if any price gain since 2010. Your podcast have been saying “Location First, Property Next”, but I’m confused with this property. Why is this place so cheap? If it’s because of the property itself, does it mean the location is not always the biggest factor? And finally, should investors seriously consider properties like this or stay clear?”

 

Start listening to the podcast to find out why this block of apartments is not appreciating in value and why they are not investment grade properties but more like investment stocks. If you are interested in investing in apartments, check out Episode 7 as well where we talked about investing in One Bedroom and Studio Apartments.
