Episode 382 | “Property Investors are Tired of Being the ATMs for the State!” – Chat with Antonia Mercorella

Queensland has been through A LOT folks.  

With the 2022 floods estimated to cost $2.5B in damage and more than 5,000 homes inhabitable, in the words of today’s podcast guest Antonia Mercorella: 

“We are facing a humanitarian crisis in Queensland”  

 Together, we’ll be unpacking the housing crisis that Queenslanders are waking up to every day, how this added demand will impact the states ALREADY struggling rental system… 

AND how REIQ and Q Shelter’s “Help House a Queenslander” campaign can help with the ongoing housing crisis! 

And if the name Antonia Mercorella sounds familiar to you – we’re proud to say it’s because she’s a returning guest from Episode 280!!  

Antonia is not only the Chief Executive Officer at the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ), but she’s an accomplished CEO and solicitor with more than 20 years of experience across the real estate and property sectors!  

But don’t get us wrong – when we say Queensland’s been through a lot, it’s not all bad!  

We’ll be unpacking it from the top, starting with the pandemic when Brisbane’s property market was HOT, and exploring what lifestyle drivers push people to move interstate!  

And let’s just say that Antonia makes a very convincing case to move to the Sunshine State 😉 (Hey, we’re halfway to packing our bags). 

We’ll also be looking at the State Government’s announcement to potentially introduce land taxes and why it’s a terrible idea!!!  

So if you’re interested in what this all means for the future of Queensland’s property market (and the wider Australian market), tune in now!!

Episode 380 | Is the Property Market Past its Peak?

With Australia’s housing boom slowing and interest rates on the horizon, folks it’s finally time to ask… 

Is the property market past its peak?! 

To help us answer this question we’re doing a deep data dive into CoreLogic’s Hedonic Home Value Index February report!

We’ll be unpacking the cycle just passed, its monthly and annual data, and what it means for our future…

 

But remember folks: We’re talking about the peak rate of growth!

While this means we probably won’t see the same level of growth in 2021, it does NOT mean you shouldn’t invest for the rest of the year!!

We’re also making some projections into 2022’s capital growth, breaking it down to the positives and negatives we expect to see in demand and supply.

You can expect us to cover everything from population movement to immigration, commuting to climate change and more!! 

 

But before you go check out the podcast, we’ve got a special announcement…

Episode 379 | Why Time is the Secret Sauce?

FOLKS if you take away one thing, let it be that the secret sauce to investing is…  

⏱⏰ TIME! ⏰⏱ 

That’s right! While playing the long game may be boring to some, we dive into why time is exactly what you need to achieve amazing returns. Don’t believe us?  

Did you know that investing legend Warren Buffet accumulated 99% of his wealth after he turned 50?!  

Yep. And to build on that, we’ll be unpacking some case studies that have achieved an 84% growth in their third decade and exploring the TRUE power of compounding. 

In fact…  

This ingredient is so important to property investing that we also did a Facebook LIVE session on this too, and today, we’ll also be uncovering some of the questions that YOU asked!  

 

Here are the questions we answered…

From Julian Bradley
Pros v cons. Investing in $600k in an investment grade property vs. 2x $300 investment grade properties. What is the better strategy if looking to source BA’s? 

From Brodiee Brodiee
When the property cycle is at the peak of the cycle and properties are generally overpriced, Is there another investment type/area that you recommend? 

From Pete Fairley
Hey fellas. Pete from the Adelaide Hills here. Im a carpenter and just starting up my property portfolio. Thoughts on if I should look closer to home within half an hour so I can do maintenance/ renovations myself, or would something further away with a little more growth and set and forget it? 

From Doug Slater
Love your work gents. Is it realistic to assume that property values could continue to rise 7% (on avg), over the long-long-term? I know past performance demonstrates this, but looking to the future, can wages continue to grow to enable this?! 

From Patrick A.
I purchased an investment property (2br apartment) 10 years ago but has only achieved 5% annual growth with flat rental growth. Is it time to sell & reinvest into property with land, or continue to hold the apartment? 

From Emanuel Bulli Camaj
Do you guys have a list of recommended brokers? Western Sydney if that helps.

Did you know that 1 in 3 Australian women retire with no super? Or that women are twice as likely as men to sell their house and move to lower-cost accommodation because of tight financial circumstances during retirement?

That’s a SHOCKING fact folks.  And joining us to deep dive into this complex topic is none other than Nicola McDougall: Chair of the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA), Director of Bricks & Mortar media, award-winning journalist and editor, and co-author of the newly released book: “The Female Investor: Creating Wealth, Security, and Freedom through Property”!!

(Talk about talented right?! Not to mention she’s our good friend from way back.)

Today we deep dive into Nicola’s history from journalist to property investor, her work with PIPA, what she hopes to achieve with her new book, and WHY women need to gain greater financial independence!!

You’ll also get to learn Nicola’s TOP 5 tips for financial empowerment…

  1. Prioritise your _______
  2. Learn about strategic _________
  3. Focus on the ____, not the ___!
  4. Understand there is no _______ approach
  5. Work with _____

 

And be sure to stick around to the end to hear the lifehack that applies to both dealing with anxiety and … property investing?!

We also slip in a special discount towards the end folks! 😉

Episode 377 | Property Market Outlook 2022 – Chat with Nerida Conisbee

It’s that time of year when everyone is interested in where the property market is going… And so are we!

That is why we’ve gone and locked in a chat with Australia’s most quoted property commentator, Nerida Conisbee, a great friend to the show as well as Chief Economist at Ray White!

Before we spill all the great things on Nerida’s 2022 Outlook, we want to take a moment and thank all our Summer Series Guests!

It was an honour and privilege to have all of them on the show and we cannot thank them enough for their honesty and transparency on their transformation journey. And if you’ve been equally inspired by their stories, we want you to take action this year and get in touch with us when the time comes for the next Summer Series!

Now folks, back to today’s episode…

If you’ve been listening to us for some time, you would know that Nerida is no stranger to the show. With an innate ability to explain complex economic (and sometimes political) scenarios in a simple and easy to digest manner, Nerida will be reviewing the year just gone.

Of course, that’s not all! (This episode is called 2022 Property Market Outlook after all!)

We’ll be unpacking some of the expected market movement this year, interest rate hikes, affordability and heaps more!
