Episode 389 | Interest Rate Rise: What this means for YOU! – Chat with Evan Lucas

Right. Let’s get this out of the way first… 

Interest rate rises shouldn’t be scary!  

There might be some panic-inducing headlines floating around (Especially after the Reserve Bank of Australia’s announcement to raise interest rates for the first time in over a decade)  

But in reality, rising interest rates are not bad! 

To help us explain why this is true, we’ve got a NEW guest on The Property Couch… 

Meet Evan Lucas, Chief Market Strategist at InvestSmart! He is an accomplished financial markets professional who has been investing in and researching global markets for more than a decade!

Evan gained experience at several top-tier global institutions and has worked with the likes of ABN Amro, the Royal Bank of Scotland and RBSMorgans!!  

On top of debunking this idea, we’ll be uncovering… 

📈 Why the RBA has decided to lift interest rates now, 

📈 How inflation psychology actually works (plus how to flip your mindset around it!)  

📈 And of course, does this change mean you should go with a fixed or variable interest rate?!? 

(PLUS, the RBA and politics, predictions for the future, AND SO MUCH MORE!!!) 

Evan will also be sharing his money story growing up and explaining what the GREATEST ASSET you can buy with money is! 

So tune in now to cut through the noise and understand the who, what, and why behind rising interest rates!

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!)
