Episode 203 | How to Choose the Right Property Manager – Chat with Lauren Robinson

Folks if there’s one thing a property investor wants… it’s to make sure that their asset is taken care of!

And an invaluable way to do this is to make sure you have quality tenants who will respect your property and obviously pay their rent on time. But you also need the assurance that (touch wood) if the worst case scenario were to play out, you’d have someone on your side to protect you and your asset and, importantly, hold the right person accountable.

…. This is where having the right property manager can make all the difference!!

So how do you spot the right property manager? And what are the traits that separate the good from great??

Joining us today — for her debut on The Property Couch — is Lauren Robinson, Founder of RentalResults, a specialist property management business based in Brisbane, author of Rented and a successful property investor (commercial and residential) in her own right. With over 15 years’ experience in the property management industry, having won Property Manager of the Year in 2017, and buying her first property way back when she was 22, Lauren is quite the guest to cover today’s topic!

Before we crack open the lid and dive into the gold, just a quick shout out that our Summer Series starts THIS COMING TUESDAY (18th of December). Yep, that IS a Tuesday!

Episode 163 | Infrastructure: What’s the Game Changer for Property?

We’re going off the cuff today, folks! Yep, there’s been no prep behind this podcast… BUT we guarantee it’s still going to be golden!

Why?? It all started (yesterday) when Ben created a little pop quiz for the staff at our company… and his question is:

What is the No.1 infrastructure needed to grow property prices?

Based on the banter that spread through our office, the answer might also surprise you!!
So, let’s drill it down to these two points:

  1. How are megacities built?
  2. What’s the connection between infrastructure and property prices?

 

Here’s the deal:

Episode 162 | Q&A – Second-tier Lenders, Brisbane’s units market and the order in Investment Assumptions (PLUS a special appearance from Jeremy Sheppard)

We have a couple of treats in store for you today, folks!!

Not only is it Q & A Day — we know: it seems like forever since we had one, and we love ‘em!! — we’ve also created A BRAND NEW SEGMENT, which is kicking off on the Couch TODAY.

Yep. Think property markets. Think sneak peak. Think data!

Actually, speaking of data, joining us for a portion of today’s episode (hint, hint) is Jeremy Sheppard! He’s our other third of LocationScore.com.au and the pioneer of the DSR Formula, which collects, analyses and researches the level of supply and demand across every market and 15,000 suburbs in Australia!

(You would have heard his insights back on Episode 125 | Everything You Need to Know about Picking the Next Hotspot — Chat with Jeremy Sheppard or on our last Facebook Live!)

 

…. What will be covered from today’s questions?

  • Should you invest in a Brisbane unit?
  • What are the pros and cons of second-tier lenders?
  • Are the assumptions about property investing making you confused?

Alright folks, before we kick off the questions, you’ll notice soon that all of them are voice recorded messages! Yep, we’re officially prioritising all of our questions that come in through our SpeakPipe widget! So leave us a quick, 60 second voicemail here!

 

Question about Investment Assumptions from Matthew:

“I’m wondering if you guys can take a moment and reflect on the investment assumptions in property, particularly on stuff like, “Hey, you should always buy in this order for capital gains: you should by a free standing house, and then a townhouse or a free standing house and a duplex and a townhouse and an apartment”… all of these investment based assumptions, which are general rules of investing in property. It’d be good to examine when they’re true and when they’re not true with different cases. I look forward to your answer. Cheers guys!”

 

Question about Investing in Brisbane Units from Pia:

“I’m a 31 year-old single woman from Brisbane with a budget of $360,000. My question is about the Brisbane unit market.
My priority is investment and I’m open when it comes to the location or type of property I purchase, but ideally I’d like to buy a place I can live in for the short to medium term, and a Brisbane unit is the best fit in that regard. I’ve been looking a 2br, 1 – 2 bathroom units in a 3 – 10km radius of the city in older boutique blocks. I’ve heard all of the warnings about the oversupply of apartments in the Brisbane market at the moment, but I’m wondering if this is the time when “Others are fearful and I should be greedy”? Where do you think we are in the market cycle? Are Brisbane units about to go up in value or are we still looking at another couple of years of downward or flat growth?

 

Question about Second-tier Lenders from James:

“My question is there have been a lot of media articles and posts around lenders outside of the big four banks, or second-tier lenders…. What are the Pros and Cons of using these lenders?”

 

 

And our chat with Jeremy Sheppard?
