Question from Sambooks
Long time listener, first time engager.! We have been epically saving for our first home, which we would like to have the option to make an investment property when we grow out of it. Only catch is we currently live and rent in the Whitsundays, which is struggling significantly due to lowered tourism rates from COVID. Having listened to the podcast for over 2 years, I understand the risks of purchased property in a location with a poorly diversified economy. Understanding that you are unable to provide personal financial advice, is there anything else we can do to mitigate the risk, as we love the area (& both have stable employment) and can see the potential of some of the lower range properties coming into the market.
Question from Matt
I often see properties bought by Empower Wealth with the historical capital growth rate – on Facebook, Instagram etc. Is this a factor to consider when deciding whether a property will perform over the long term (20+ years)? Thanks in advance
My partner and I are looking at buying our next property interstate to 1) diversify our portfolio and 2) reduce land tax liability. Are there Buyers Agents which cover Australia wide who can give an objective view of which interstate market to buy in? Or do we need to reach out and find a local buyers agent in each state?
Question from Dan
Obviously depending on your own horse and what course you want to ride, but typically speaking Is it worth having 2 smaller to mid-range properties delivering high yield ($300-350k with 6% y) or worth chasing a high growth high level home (600-700k with 3%yield)?
Or even if the yield and growth stories were aligned, is 2 at half the pa income better than 1 at full pa income? Lower or higher risk?
(Psst… Bryce and Ben here. If you’re interested to learn more about this subject beyond our answer, check out this free case study on growth versus yield 😉)
Question from Kieren
Tossing up between moving into one of my rental properties as I have been renting the last twelve months after selling my last home ($1 saved is better than a dollar earned at the minute). Do you think this is a good strategy to ride out this COVID storm rather than buy right now? I want our next property to be the big rock in the jar. I also want to buy acreage, what are your thoughts on samford valley in Brisbane for long term Growth?
Question from Jack
Getting the location right can be narrowed right down to the street but as an investor holding long term and not actually wanting to sell, is it better to try get a house on that busy street in an a grade suburb at a discount so when getting valuations and comparable sales in the future it will work in your favour?
Question from Matt
Thoughts on buying defence housing Australia projects? I wouldn’t buy new as I understand you’re buying the developers margins but would you buy as the second or third owner once the market has caught up?
Are there any downsides to permanent long term leases. I believe you’re locked in with their real estate agent that’s a much higher management fee (around 16%) but they cover any minor repairs and at the end of the defence lease they refresh the house up to ‘new’ standards.- new carpet, fresh paint ect
Question from Damien
Could Bryce and Ben talk about active investing – fixer upperers, buying to subdivide and build units, and buying 2 bed-1 bath period/character homes to turn into 4 bed-2bath homes
Question from Jarryd
I bought ‘house & land’ 3 years ago before I was educated. What can I do now to ensure growth?
Question from Matt
Is putting a granny flat out the back a good idea when retiring out the debt? Pros and cons?
