How To Pick The Right Investment Property: “Know Thy Quadrant…”

So, what makes for the RIGHT investment property… and how do you pick it?

Well, let’s be honest… most of us can’t tick all the boxes on our property wish-list. We’d like to, sure, but often this isn’t an accurate depiction of reality. We can’t all afford the best house in the best street in a blue-chip, capital-growth-centric location every time we invest in property! So, chances are you’ve had, or will have, a conversation about what you might have to compromise in the buying process.

… And this is where our “Buyer’s Decision Quadrant” comes in!

This is a framework that can help you with the asset selection process and help you make an informed decision so you are NOT compromising where it matters most. Because there is something that is absolutely non-negotiable.

So in today’s episode, we’re going to take a deep dive on the four areas — the “Quadrants”  — of our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant so you can sleep well knowing you’ve picked the right investment property with the money you have and the ambitions you seek!

Listen now to learn how to pick the right investment property by using our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant to weigh up the “wins” and “loses” of what you compromise on!

The #1 Reason Why These Properties Soar In Value… While Others DON’T!

Not all properties are created equal. And there is a specific reason for this – what we like to call “The Psychology Behind The Price”. And this has EVERYTHING to do with human interest and human behaviour – something that can indeed be measured and, almost always, stays exactly the same… no matter who you are or where you live.

Here’s the deal… there are two “types” of properties – Investment Grade and Investment Stock. And most investors are often tricked into thinking – or falsely assume – that what they think is a good investment is going to turn out to be, well, a good investment. And this is NOT the case. In fact, it’s often the complete opposite.

This may come as a surprise to you… but the greatest investments – what we call “investment grade” properties – actually target the owner-occupier (that is, the home owner)… NOT the investor!

And in today’s episode we’re going to tell you exactly why this is and give you the science behind what makes for an Investment Grade property and how to recognise one using the golden rule that underpins the value of propertySupply and Demand!

Listen now to learn how to get a return on your investment property and keep it… simply by identifying high demand in the property market.

 

Remember…

Investment Grade = Great.

Investment Stock = No good.

Episode 251 | What’s NOT Going To Change in Property Investing?

We all love questioning what the future holds and speculating on what’s in store for us. And, of course, investing in property is no different. But the thing is… is it helpful to put all that emphasis on the things we can’t control?

See, today’s episode is all about looking through the lens of this quote by Amazon Founder and one of the richest men in the world, Jeff Bezos…

 

“I very frequently get the question, ‘What’s going to change in the next 10 years?’ And that is a very interesting question; it’s a very common one. I almost never get the question: ‘What’s not going to change in the next 10 years?’ And I submit to you that that second question is actually the more important of the two — because you can build a business strategy around the things that are stable in time.” Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder

 

Folks, when we ask ourselves “What’s NOT Going to Change in Property Investing?” we are actually asking ourselves a higher quality question. And this higher quality question not only helps us to see things more clearly and make smart chess moves, but also, it empowers us to remain the ones in charge despite what future changes occur.

So… what’s always gonna be the same in property a decade from now? Or 20 years from now? Or 40? What are the things that’ll always influence property prices?

Well, tune in folks… and we’ll tell you exactly what’s NOT going to change in property investing!

 

Free Stuff Mentioned…

 

The Top Highlights…

  • Realistically, will property prices always grow?
  • What type of infrastructure coming into an area does NOT always mean gentrification?
  • Which human behaviour traits will always occur, no matter what?
  • What’s going to happen to Property Spruikers with their “get rich quick schemes”?
  • What specific things are NOT going to change in property investing???

 

 

 

 

Episode 250 | Roger Montgomery – Chat with Australia’s Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is probably the greatest investor in the world. And when we say “probably” we really mean…“is”.

Sure, Buffett is estimated to be worth $US83 billion (not incl. the billions he’s already given away to charity)…… and, yep, he sure did make the majority of his wealth after his 50th birthday.

The question is… HOW did he become a self-made billionaire????

…… Value-investing!

In other words: he invested in stocks that were priced for LESS than their true worth. And he held onto them for the long term. That’s it.

So as a very special treat for OUR 250th EPISODE… WE’VE GOT “AUSTRALIA’S WARREN BUFFET” in the house!

And that brings us to today’s guest….

Roger Montgomery, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Montgomery Investment Management, which is a Sydney based specialist boutique equity manager that manages $1.5 billion on behalf of private investors, their advisors and families. Through a simple, common and time-tested philosophy, Montgomery manages several VALUE-ORIENTED FUNDS focused on the various aspects of quality to generate superior return over the very long term.

Before we unpack all this completely, Roger’s 26-year background in financial markets includes Equity Analysis, Equity and Derivative Trading and Investment Banking. After founding, listing and selling a financial services business and listed investment company, Roger established his boutique investment management office.  In 2010, he published his first best-selling book, Value.able – How to Value the Best Stocks and Buy Them for Less Than They’re Worth.

… the clincher, folks?? … His book, of course, sets out his three simple steps for value-investing and online trading.

So. Shall we get on with it… and simply chat to Australia’s version of Warren Buffet????

… You betcha!!!
