013 | Q&A – Buy an Investment Property and Continue Renting OR Buy a Home?

Right off the bat folks, a big THANK YOU to our listeners for all the questions they’ve sent in!  

We’re excited to be answering a BUNCH of great questions in our FIRST EVER Q&A session!

We’ll be covering a lot of ground; from the crucial conversations you should be having before making ANY decisions to the type of research and data that’ll help you determine the best options for you. 📈

We’re also sharing our thoughts on the Government’s policies when it comes to negative and positive gearing, and explaining why removing negative gearing is a terrible idea! 

Once again thank you to everyone who has submitted a question! We’re glad this podcast has inspired you and we had tons of fun recording this episode.   

Listen in now folks; plenty of gold to help you make the right decisions…  

P.S. In the future we are hoping to answer ALL of your questions, so please keep sending them in!  


The Questions

Dan and Ryan:  

“Should we buy an investment property in a high growth location and keep renting, or move a bit further out and get something we can afford?” 


“Do you think the tax rules around negative gearing will change in the future, so as not to benefit those investing in multiple properties and how do you diversify your portfolio?” 


“How do you identify high disposable income suburbs and if you’re buying in a block of units, how do you work out if there are more owner-occupiers than renters in the building and area? Also, what do you think about dual living homes i.e. granny flats?”
