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.

Should You Be A Borderless Investor?

 

There are many pros and cons in investing in other states across Australia but more often than not, investors find this a bit daunting. Well, to be fair, there are a lot of things to be cautious about such as unfamiliar territory, different state regulations and more. But in this video, Bryce explains why you should consider being a borderless investor. Here’s a snippet of the article:

So I guess the question for property investors are, should you be a borderless investor and what does that actually mean? More than ever, I’m talking to clients who are keen to not invest in their own backyard and actually look into other states for opportunities to buy because one of the biggest question that I’m always asked, in my role in the show (Location Location Location Australia) and my daily role as a buyers agent, is how is the market doing? It’s kind of a strange question because it’s probably a logical one that people want to know about. But the question is, are you buying? Are you selling? Are you investing? Are you researching?

Episode 014 | Should we buy in a Boom & are we in a Property Bubble?

This time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the hot topic of the month! Should we buy in a boom and are we in a property bubble? It is undeniable that there’s definitely a boom in Sydney and Melbourne is not far behind and we often received enquiries on how to buy in these two state. Well, the question should be more around is it wise to buy in these states? Bryce and Ben has spoken before about buying Counter Cyclical and this time they explain further why they don’t think it is good to join the bandwagon of investors and home buyers in these areas.

Bryce and Ben will be discussing about the new changes implemented by APRA (Australian Prudential Regulation Authority) as well. This is especially crucial for investors that have done a pre-approval. The final topic discussed today is whether Australia is in a Property Bubble. A great analogy by our hosts is we are not in a bubble, perhaps more like a balloon. Interested to know what they meant? Listen to this podcast to learn more.

Today the Reserve Governor and the Board met and they’ve kept interest rates on hold. Now this was widely anticipated. The facts are, at 2% cash rate, it is at historically low level and if we were to actually move rates further down which we do have capacity to do if you look at the minutes. Now, if you are wondering what factors have motivated the RBA to make this decision, check out Ben’s commentary on it.
