Free Stuff Mentioned 

 

Here are the Questions We Answer…

Luke on Regional areas 

“What areas are considered regional?”  

Char Williams on the Expansion of the Home Guarantee Scheme for First Home Buyers 

“Does the federal budget help property investors? Also, will the expansion of the home guarantee scheme for first home buyers just continue to increase house prices due to lack of stock?”  

Dan Coletti on If Budget will help Cost of Living 

“Hey Benji and Big Brice 🤭,

Would a question here trigger a start and build course voucher 🤷🏼‍♂️🙋🏼‍♂️🙏😉?

So here goes- will these budget commitments to “help” in the cost of living, drive a false economy and therefore enacting a potential for a premature interest rate rise and amount.”

shaunjb_ on RBA Interest Rates  

“Could we expect the RBA to respond by increasing rates earlier than anticipated due to some of these announcements?”

Positive.jules on Consequences of Government Backed Schemes

“Thoughts on the potential consequences of these government backed schemes that could push first home buyers into a negative equity. A position I imagine at current times isn’t even seen as a risk to many getting into the market with low deposits and assumed continuous growth as seen in the hot market.

Love ya work boys and GO PIES! #piesflag2022 #believe”

Luke Keegan on Creating Generational Wealth  

“What can i do now to ensure my young children (1 & 3) will be able to have a home in adulthood?”  

Brendan Mutsaers on the Impacts of the 5% Government loan 

“Will all the backing of government with 5% loan or less lead to poor quality borrowers and higher defaults? Thinking seeds of sub-prime loans.” 

Danielle Shacklock in response to Brendan Mutsaers’ Question:  

“I got a 5% loan as a single mum. Brought a new SUV, all new furniture, invest in shares for my kids invest in my super and have paid 10% of my home off in under 12 months. Onto the next. I put extra into my home loan and brought smart. 

I am wanting a holiday home next. I don’t think all 5% loans are set for failure. If I default on my home with the rental crisis I risk homelessness as there’s no rentals available anywhere ever. 

I’ve already been in 12 

Months and have now kept my stamp duty waiver. 

Just because people secure these loans doesn’t automatically mean they can’t manage money. The onus is back on the person lending not the lenders. 

Interesting question.”

The Questions…

Question from Al Knight Lewis – Investment Stock & Investment Grade – Is it still relevant?

“Good afternoon. I have just started listening to your podcasts and am finding them so

Interesting! Episode 8 talks about investment stock vs investment grade and I’m wondering if the info in this episode is still current and relevant 6 years later? I’m looking for our first investment in Brisbane.”

 

Question from Don Holloway – Are there any benefits from having $10k sitting in an offset?

“With interest rates so low atm is there any benefits from having $10k sitting in an offset?

My calculations (and confirmed by investment bankers n mortgage brokers) best to buy quality shares with your $10k than to month ball it into an offset account. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

BTW, I’ve read your book Make Money Simple Again last year. Found it to be a parallel to Scott Pape barefoot investor
