Episode 363 | Exodus to the Regions – Will this Trend Reverse? – Chat with Dr Nicola Powell

This data is hot off the press folks!! 🔥🔥🔥

It’s no secret that property prices have grown quite a bit lately, but recent data is showing that we’re breaking records!

Here’s a snippet from Domain’s media release just a week ago:

September Quarter 2021 House Price Report shows Australian house prices experiencing a historical rate of growth at 21.9%, the fastest annual rate of growth on record with median house prices at almost $1 million nationally.

But…what does this mean for both sellers and buyers? Is this likely to stay or are we going to see a crash in the new year? Is this growth even sustainable with our current economy?!

AND…

Will the Regional Exodus Backflip?!!

There are heaps of moving parts here and we know it can get a little overwhelming…

So we’ve outsourced and brought in an expert to help us out.

And yes, we’ve been teasing you about her for the past few weeks so bring on the drum roll please…

🥁🥁🥁

Joining us on the show today is none other than Dr Nicola Powell, Chief of Research & Economics for Domain and one of Australia’s leading property market experts!

With more than 15 years’ research experience that spans academic, government and private sector, Nicola is the leading force behind Domain’s regular data reports that keep the Australian public up to date on what’s happening in the market.

Safe to say that we’re in good hands folks.

Tune in to find out more!

Episode 314 | The Millennial Movement: How It’s Shifting Property Demand – Chat with Simon Kuestenmacher

Did you know there’s a “Millennial Movement” currently happening? What if we told you this is shifting the property type set for high demand? What if we told you it might not be what you think it is?!

Folks, we’re about to dive inside the mind of an expert Demographer – someone who studies the changing structure of human populations and how this is going to play out in the future. And someone we’re VERY excited to have on!

Today’s guest is Simon Kuestenmacher – Co-Founder of and Director of Research at The Demographics Group!

Yes, The Demographics Group is, of course, headed by Managing Director Bernard Salt, one of Australia’s most sought-after social commentators…. and Simon not only works alongside him, he is himself a rising star in the world of demography – particularly when it comes to data animation and interpretation.

Even better, he has a rare talent of explaining these insights in a way that’s both super engaging (you’ll soon see!) so we can ALL understand and benefit from. He holds degrees in geography from leading universities in both Berlin and Melbourne and has also worked for several years as a business consultant with KPMG Australia. Basically, he absolutely knows his stuff!

Key Message Before You Listen…. As you likely know already – Australia’s population has a HUGE flow on effect to the demand (and hence the price) of property. At the end of the day, “population” is really “people”… and people, of course, live in and set the demand for properties… So when someone tells you little-known insights about who these people are and what they’re up to – i.e. key demographic trends, consumer insights and cultural changes – if you’re someone who’s interested in INVESTING in property… well, it’s extremely wise to pay attention.

You’ll get huge value out of this ep, folks!

Tune in now to hear what’s coming next for Australian Property!

How To Pick The Right Investment Property: “Know Thy Quadrant…”

So, what makes for the RIGHT investment property… and how do you pick it?

Well, let’s be honest… most of us can’t tick all the boxes on our property wish-list. We’d like to, sure, but often this isn’t an accurate depiction of reality. We can’t all afford the best house in the best street in a blue-chip, capital-growth-centric location every time we invest in property! So, chances are you’ve had, or will have, a conversation about what you might have to compromise in the buying process.

… And this is where our “Buyer’s Decision Quadrant” comes in!

This is a framework that can help you with the asset selection process and help you make an informed decision so you are NOT compromising where it matters most. Because there is something that is absolutely non-negotiable.

So in today’s episode, we’re going to take a deep dive on the four areas — the “Quadrants”  — of our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant so you can sleep well knowing you’ve picked the right investment property with the money you have and the ambitions you seek!

Listen now to learn how to pick the right investment property by using our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant to weigh up the “wins” and “loses” of what you compromise on!

  • What is “The Buyers Decision Quadrant” and how can you use it to purchase your next investment property?
  • What is The One Thing you should NEVER compromise on?
  • Should you buy “Smaller, Closer In” OR “Bigger, Further Out?”
  • What can you compromise on if you have a smaller budget?
  • How to recognise which investment property will work for your own circumstances…
  • Is a property that “ticks all boxes” – AKA the perfect property – really a myth?
  • Is “Uglier” always better?
  • Land size considerations…
  • What should you quickly overlook?

The #1 Reason Why These Properties Soar In Value… While Others DON’T!

Not all properties are created equal. And there is a specific reason for this – what we like to call “The Psychology Behind The Price”. And this has EVERYTHING to do with human interest and human behaviour – something that can indeed be measured and, almost always, stays exactly the same… no matter who you are or where you live.

Here’s the deal… there are two “types” of properties – Investment Grade and Investment Stock. And most investors are often tricked into thinking – or falsely assume – that what they think is a good investment is going to turn out to be, well, a good investment. And this is NOT the case. In fact, it’s often the complete opposite.

This may come as a surprise to you… but the greatest investments – what we call “investment grade” properties – actually target the owner-occupier (that is, the home owner)… NOT the investor!

And in today’s episode we’re going to tell you exactly why this is and give you the science behind what makes for an Investment Grade property and how to recognise one using the golden rule that underpins the value of propertySupply and Demand!

Listen now to learn how to get a return on your investment property and keep it… simply by identifying high demand in the property market.

 

Remember…

Investment Grade = Great.

Investment Stock = No good.
