Episode 202 | We warned you to Prepare for Winter… Did You?

Over 2 ½ years ago, waaay back on Episode 66, we warned you that Winter Was Coming…

The question is folks… did you prepare?

We really hope you did. Because if you caught ABC’s three-part 7:30 Report this week or you read the OECD Housing Report that came out on Monday, then you’ll know that the Australian housing market isn’t the flavour of the month at the moment.

We’ve all seen that the property market come off its peak, and this, combined with the credit crunch following APRA’s lending restrictions and the Banking Royal Commission, as well as the proposed changes to Negative Gearing and Capital Gains Tax has spread a ripple right across market sentiment.

In other words, you could say… Winter is here.

So, today we’re diving into what’s unfolding with housing prices and what we’re likely to see happen in the property market from here. To help with this, we’re revisiting what we discussed 2 ½ years ago — Episode 066 | Winter is coming and the air will be colder up high.

And folks, the similarities between what we said then to what we’re seeing now just might shock you! Those who acted early and pulled out the umbrella won’t be surprised.

BUT the real question is: what does all this mean for you and the future of investing in property?

Or do you simply want a straight answer to “What the heck is going on in the property market right now?”

We’ve got you covered.

 

Here’s the wild ride you’re in for…

 

The REPORTS and Media mentioned…

OECD House Price Report

ABC’s 7:30 Report – Latest figures from CoreLogic

Episode 185 | Will your Generation achieve “The Great Australian Dream”? — The Future of Australia’s Population, Retirement Expectations, And Other Things You Thought Were True – Chat with Mark McCrindle

Attention! Baby Boomers, Gen XYZ,  Alpha and everyone else — yep, that’s probably you — we have THE episode that just might teach you a thing or two about your generation, your next door neighbour’s generation, AND the next “smashed avocado” to take Australia by storm!

What are we talking about?

Folks, making himself comfortable on the couch today is Mark McCrindle, founder and Principle of McCrindle Research, and an award-winning social researcher, best-selling author, influential thought leader, and, wait for it… a demographer!

This is one topic that made all of us on the show super excited because as a demographer, Mark tracks emerging issues, researches social trends and sets the stage for Australia’s population — which is VERY handy if you want to know where the future’s heading, and why. Plus, he’s also the author of best-selling book, The ABC of XYZ, which opens the “can of worms” on each generation, their values and shares the story of a country centred on “the fair go”.

So, aside from learning the story behind the data, you’re about to hear all about Australia’s people, and our insights into property, retirement and wealth creation!

Oh, and Mark’s brought in his latest infographics and insight and everything — you can get all of them here — so get ready for a knowledge-packed episode! His team’s research into Australians living a successful life is one that you can’t miss as well! Just click here to download or fill in the form below and we’ll send it all to your email. 🙂

Episode 174 | Stop! Don’t sign the contract until you’ve listened to THIS! – Chat about Strata, Body Corporates & Legal Stuff with Tim Graham

Folks, it’s a SERIOUS episode today… jam-packed with nothing but serious GOLD!! (Please no contract-signing until you’ve swallowed this stuff first.)

Why? Today we’ve got Tim Graham, Partner at HWL Ebsworth Lawyers, to discuss all things Real Estate Law … especially Strata!!

Strata? What do we mean? Think Off the Plan. Subdivision. Owner Corporate (Body Corporate). Townhouse. Apartment. Unit.

 

Yep. Tim practices exclusively in the areas of strata and subdivision law, Owners Corporation and dispute resolution with almost 20 years of experience! He’s the President of the Australian College of Community Association Lawyers (ACCAL), a Fellow of the College, named in Best Lawyers™ Australia for Real Property Law and has been recognised in Doyle’s Guide as a Leading Property and Real Estate Lawyer. He is also a Council Member of Strata Communities Australia. It’s enough to make your jaw drop, especially when you think about his know-how when it comes to domestic and commercial construction law, contractual advice and building defects claims, insurance reviews, repair & maintenance and Water Act cases in the VCAT and the Courts (and then some)!

Basically, Tim’s a heavy hitter who absolutely knows his stuff (Which’s exactly what you want from someone dealing with the “the fourth form of government”).

Quick heads up, folks: You might need to put this one back to 1 speed because there is some GOLDEN but TECHNICAL tips flying around. At the end of the day though, it’s crucial you know this stuff (why spend hundreds of thousands of dollars only to throw more money at a legal dispute?!)

 

Sensible disclaimer: Folks, the gold you’re about to hear is general advice only. So, please DON’T do anything rash, make sure you seek professional advice before making any legal or property investment decision!

 

Your dot point debrief….

 

We’ve also threw in a few Case Studies for Tim to comment on as well:

  • What can you do if someone’s having loud parties on your block?
  • Who’s responsible for cleaning the outside windows?
  • Can you erect a pergola in the backyard of my townhouse?
  • The visitor carpark is always empty, can I use it?
  • What if the complex has a pool and you don’t use it … do you still have to pay?

 

Pheww! What an episode, huh??

And a quick shout out to our previous guest, Nicole Faid, for sending the legendary Tim our way! (You can suss out her episode after: How to Avoid the 7 Costly Mistakes when Buying a Property – Chat with Nicole Faid)
