Episode 379 | Why Time is the Secret Sauce?

FOLKS if you take away one thing, let it be that the secret sauce to investing is…  

⏱⏰ TIME! ⏰⏱ 

That’s right! While playing the long game may be boring to some, we dive into why time is exactly what you need to achieve amazing returns. Don’t believe us?  

Did you know that investing legend Warren Buffet accumulated 99% of his wealth after he turned 50?!  

Yep. And to build on that, we’ll be unpacking some case studies that have achieved an 84% growth in their third decade and exploring the TRUE power of compounding. 

In fact…  

This ingredient is so important to property investing that we also did a Facebook LIVE session on this too, and today, we’ll also be uncovering some of the questions that YOU asked!  

 

Here are the questions we answered…

From Julian Bradley
Pros v cons. Investing in $600k in an investment grade property vs. 2x $300 investment grade properties. What is the better strategy if looking to source BA’s? 

From Brodiee Brodiee
When the property cycle is at the peak of the cycle and properties are generally overpriced, Is there another investment type/area that you recommend? 

From Pete Fairley
Hey fellas. Pete from the Adelaide Hills here. Im a carpenter and just starting up my property portfolio. Thoughts on if I should look closer to home within half an hour so I can do maintenance/ renovations myself, or would something further away with a little more growth and set and forget it? 

From Doug Slater
Love your work gents. Is it realistic to assume that property values could continue to rise 7% (on avg), over the long-long-term? I know past performance demonstrates this, but looking to the future, can wages continue to grow to enable this?! 

From Patrick A.
I purchased an investment property (2br apartment) 10 years ago but has only achieved 5% annual growth with flat rental growth. Is it time to sell & reinvest into property with land, or continue to hold the apartment? 

From Emanuel Bulli Camaj
Do you guys have a list of recommended brokers? Western Sydney if that helps.

Did you know that 1 in 3 Australian women retire with no super? Or that women are twice as likely as men to sell their house and move to lower-cost accommodation because of tight financial circumstances during retirement?

That’s a SHOCKING fact folks.  And joining us to deep dive into this complex topic is none other than Nicola McDougall: Chair of the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA), Director of Bricks & Mortar media, award-winning journalist and editor, and co-author of the newly released book: “The Female Investor: Creating Wealth, Security, and Freedom through Property”!!

(Talk about talented right?! Not to mention she’s our good friend from way back.)

Today we deep dive into Nicola’s history from journalist to property investor, her work with PIPA, what she hopes to achieve with her new book, and WHY women need to gain greater financial independence!!

You’ll also get to learn Nicola’s TOP 5 tips for financial empowerment…

  1. Prioritise your _______
  2. Learn about strategic _________
  3. Focus on the ____, not the ___!
  4. Understand there is no _______ approach
  5. Work with _____

 

And be sure to stick around to the end to hear the lifehack that applies to both dealing with anxiety and … property investing?!

We also slip in a special discount towards the end folks! 😉

Would you like help in setting up your Money SMARTS?

We’re ready to help! 👋

Building on from Bryce and Ben’s post summer series message on the podcast, we are thrilled you want to learn more about how we might be able to help get you started with our MoneySMARTS money management system in 2022.

You’re not alone, in recent years we have received a growing number of enquiries coming in about getting ‘human’ help to set up Money SMARTS the right way from day one, which is amazing, but we didn’t have anyone who could help until now. And based on the feedback we got after telling them to just rely on the book and use the free online MoneySMARTS tool, there was always a risk, they will instead pass on using this amazing time saving and life changing system due to their lack of confidence in getting started in the first place.

So… fast forward to 2022 and we’ve listened to the feedback and we’ve decided to launch a new hands on Money SMARTS Set Up service for people just like you.

Ben Kingsley himself, along with Joel Burton, one of our in-house Money SMARTS guru, will be leading this new initiative, so you will be in good hands. They are planning to run a few free 15 minute information sessions in February & March to outline what’s involved and what you will get as part of this service.  They will also answer any questions you might have, so you can make an informed decision if this set up service is right for you in getting you started with the MoneySMARTS money management system.

If you’re interested, leave your details below and we will be in touch shortly.

It’s that time of year when everyone is interested in where the property market is going… And so are we!

That is why we’ve gone and locked in a chat with Australia’s most quoted property commentator, Nerida Conisbee, a great friend to the show as well as Chief Economist at Ray White!

Before we spill all the great things on Nerida’s 2022 Outlook, we want to take a moment and thank all our Summer Series Guests!

It was an honour and privilege to have all of them on the show and we cannot thank them enough for their honesty and transparency on their transformation journey. And if you’ve been equally inspired by their stories, we want you to take action this year and get in touch with us when the time comes for the next Summer Series!

Now folks, back to today’s episode…

If you’ve been listening to us for some time, you would know that Nerida is no stranger to the show. With an innate ability to explain complex economic (and sometimes political) scenarios in a simple and easy to digest manner, Nerida will be reviewing the year just gone.

Of course, that’s not all! (This episode is called 2022 Property Market Outlook after all!)

We’ll be unpacking some of the expected market movement this year, interest rate hikes, affordability and heaps more!
