UNpacked: How to Retire on $2k per Week


Do you know what the number one trap is when it comes to money?

We’re not all playing the same game!

What does this mean?


In their 20+ years in the industry, Bryce & Ben often come across a common theme which is… “My friend/family invested in property via that strategy/location and was really successful, so I decided to do the same thing.

We might all have the same destination but bear in mind that how we get to this destination is different for everyone!

In this mini bonus episode, Bryce & Ben discuss our brand-new course “Unpacked: How to Retire on $2k per Week!

(More details on www.thepropertycouch.com.au/casestudy)


When it comes to our bestselling 2016 book The Armchair Guide to Property Investing, it is the case study chapter that often received the most feedback. Our readers love it!! The analysis, tables and charts have always been a popular hit. BUT one thing that they often requested for is…

The nitty gritty behind the modelling.


After all, there’s only so much you can see from table and charts on black and white printed paper.

And so, in a typical TPC fashion, we’ve taken their feedback to heart and are proud to announce that after months of work, our brand-new online course is now ready!!

This course discusses seven different scenarios (the book only covers six, but we threw in a bonus one for this course!), and how you can plan for a comfortable retirement no matter which “game” you are playing!

Each case study is around the 40-minute mark and covers more than what you can get from the book. And the best bit is… we’ve updated the variables and assumptions in the book to reflect current times!

Find out how everyday Aussies like yourself make $2,000 per week in passive income, whether you are:

  • A Rentvestor (Renter looking to invest in property)
  • DINKS (Double Income No Kids)
  • A Couple with Young Kids
  • An Older Couple with Older Kids
  • Empty Nesters
  • A Single Parent
  • (BONUS!) A Single Millennial with a Thirst for Travel

For only a few more days, this course will be available at a heavily reduced launch price of $97! After this, the price will go up, so you don’t want to miss out!

465 | How This Family Can Afford their Year-Long Holiday While Building Their Portfolio


We’ve always said that property investing is a process not an event but…

How does one successfully match this process with ongoing family, life AND travel goals to achieve it all?!? 🏡🌟 

Folks, in today’s episode, we’re revealing how it’s possible through two real-life case studies!   

In our first case study, “Scratching the Itch”, we’re exploring how a young family who is looking to spend a memorable year travelling with their young ones can achieve this while continuing to work towards buying their forever home.  

 In the next case study, “Older Demographics Need Help Too!”, we chart the path that Linda, a 54-year-old Zookeeper can take to achieve her dream retirement without sacrificing her current lifestyle.  

We’ll be deep-diving into the problems and life-changing epiphanies each of these brave investors have had, along with the exact steps and plans we created to help each of them achieve it all.  

From the power of prioritisation to seeing what is possible, we’re highlighting the many advantages of seeking professional advice.  A seriously motivational and practical episode for all, give it a listen now!

414 | How This Couple Is Smashing Procrastination & Retiring Early

One of the biggest derailers for any investor is…

Procrastination. 😱 

So how can you avoid falling into this trap?!   

Folks this week we’re back with another super-exciting, real Case Study about Annabelle & Jamie (Pstt – These are fake names!).  

A couple in their late 30s, they’ve spent the past 5 years procrastinating their life’s dream of building a property portfolio and moving from the bustling city of Sydney to the laidback coast of Byron Bay Hinterland. 

Overwhelmed with the number of options and their lack of knowledge, sadly, they believed that this dream has passed them by. 🙁 

Tune in now to discover the sequencing that Annabelle & Jamie can take to still make this dream a reality, and the frameworks and property plan that’ll stop them from falling into the procrastination trap (or from making more costly mistakes) ever again!  

A crazy-but-true episode that highlights the power of planning, taking action and smashing procrastination!

Listen now to see how this couple can achieve all of this while setting themselves up for a $120K passive income AND an early retirement!
