There’s no denying that Sydney and Melbourne are in a boom right now…But what does that mean for the everyday investor?  

Here’s the deal:  

We’re exploring WHAT you should be considering if you’re thinking of jumping into these heated markets… 

 WHY having the fundamentals of property selection is important during this time…

 In fact, we’re answering if you should even be investing at all during a boom – After all, how do you know the market hasn’t already peaked?  

We’ll also be sharing our strategy for dealing with booming markets! (Check out our episode on buying counter-cyclical as part of this!)   

And remember folks… 

It’s not a bubble, it’s a balloon! 🎈🎈 

You heard it here first!! Now that we’ve verbally trademarked it (Yep, that’s 100% legitimate 😉)…what do we mean?  

Well, you’ll have to tune in to find out!  

All we’re saying for now is that Sydney’s currently in a property balloon…Listen in now!
