Episode 230 | From Residential to Commercial Investing: How this guy quit his Day Job at 28 – Chat with Scott O’Neill

Folks, if you’ve sussed out the title, you’ll know that today we’re visiting a space we don’t normally explore — and that’s investing in COMMERCIAL property!

If you’re a regular listener, you’ve definitely cottoned on to the fact that we obviously have an agenda towards residential investing (we figure everyone needs somewhere to live)…  BUT our bias doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t reach success by other means of investing.

And walking proof of this is Scott O’Neill, Founder and Director of Rethink Investing who is an experienced and active investor who was able to RETIRE FROM HIS DAY JOB AT 28! Yep, VERY impressive. And he did it by investing in both residential property AND commercial property — mostly including well-selected unit blocks and small business that’ll likely be around for years to come.

With a portfolio of 28 properties (yep, the same number as the age he threw in the towel as an engineer), Scott’s passion and commitment has paid off in spades — he and his wife were able to take a 6 month sabbatical from working life and do nothing but travel Europe until, as it so happened, they grew bored of it and decided to teach others how to reach the same success instead!

So today we’re traversing Scott’s journey from residential to commercial property and picking up some pebbles of gold for you along the way:-)

Right off the bat folks, a big THANK YOU to our listeners for all the questions they’ve sent in!  

We’re excited to be answering a BUNCH of great questions in our FIRST EVER Q&A session!  

We’ll be walking you through the crucial conversations you should be having before making ANY decisions…  

And sharing the type of research and data you should be conducting to know the best option for you! 📈  

We’re also sharing our thoughts on the Government’s policies on negative and positive gearing (and explaining why removing negative gearing is a terrible idea!)    

Once again thank you to all our question submitters, we’re glad that this podcast has inspired you and we had tons of fun recording this one!   

Listen in now folks, plenty of gold to help you make the right decisions.

The Questions…

Dan and Ryan:  

“Should we buy an investment property in a high growth location and keep renting, or move a bit further out and get something we can afford?” 

Leah:  

“Do you think the tax rules around negative gearing will change in the future, so as not to benefit those investing in multiple properties and how do you diversify your portfolio?” 

Mark:  

“How do you identify high disposable income suburbs and if you’re buying in a block of units, how do you work out if there are more owner-occupiers than renters in the building and area? Also, what do you think about dual living homes ie: granny flats?”
