Episode 028 | Is the Property Market Oversupplied & What’s Happening in the Lending Sector?

With dwelling approvals remaining close to record high levels and the latest housing credit data suggesting a slowing investment credit growth, will this lead to an oversupply in the Australian property market? On top of that, how is the lending sector affected by the recent changes put in place by Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA)? All these factors are a cause for concern for most property investors especially when there is a lack of awareness in this industry.

So in this episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be discussing if our property market is oversupplied and which areas will be affected by this market movement. They will also be discussing the recent changes made by APRA, how will it impact property investors and what can investors do to ensure their property plan remains on track.

Episode 020 | Science of Asset Selection – The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant

There are many factors at play when looking for an investment property, but did you know there’s actually a science behind selecting assets Ep 20 - science of asset selection Buyers Decision Quadrant 2

Yep that’s right folks! This science is called: The Buyers Decision Quadrant  

It’s made up of… 

  1. Price
  2. Location  
  3. Land proportion  
  4. Quality of Dwelling 

We’ll explain what each one means, and while the concept is quite simple, the real achievement is understanding which part of the quadrant you are willing to compromise on and which is non-negotiable.  

We’re also looking at some great case studies (one of which was a fictional case study…until this case study rang up Bryce to share her almost exact financial and personal story!!)… 

And comparing 1970s and 1990s apartments, and which one has fared better over time!  

Folks, it is rare for an investment property to tick all the boxes, and most of the time, you will need to journey through the Buyers Decision Quadrant to make the right decision for you!  

So keep this episode on repeat ‘cos we think this one will help with making those hard decisions again and again!  

 

Also, The Property Couch is hoping to get nominated for the Investor’s Choice Award 2015 for the category: Property Educator/Mentor. We would like to spread the word out on the podcast so that we can help more people avoid making bad investment choices and avoid buying the wrong asset.

How To Spot A Property Spruiker?

 

The issue about Property Spruikers is not a new one but a lot of investors out there are still unaware about it and as a result, receiving bad property investment advice. With this in mind, Bryce started this How to Session by defining what is a spruiker and describe some of the common ways to spot one. Here’s a snippet of the video:

I’ve been in this Property Investment industry for over 16 years and I’m often asked this question, “How do you actually spot a Property Spruiker?”. Lots of people talk about property spruikers but what actually is it? In my view, there’s actually three, I guess, people that you can take your information from in this property investment industry. The first person is the Salesperson who is not pretending to be anything other than a salesperson that’s being employed by the developer to sell their product. They sit typically in the sales office, they invite enquiry and they try to sell one of the developer’s product whether it is an off the plan apartment or a house and land package, they are very very clear on what they do. On the other side of the equation, you got the advisor. The true property investment advisor who has no stocklist, no agenda, they want to find out exactly what is going on for the investor so they can work out what tailored solution they need to provide on behalf of the property investor. And then you’ve got this grey area in between.

Episode 011 | Property Spruikers

We’ve got four words when it comes to property spruikers folks:   

Run for the hills! 🏃🏃 

Today’s topic is something we’re extremely passionate about which is why we’re focusing an entire episode on it!!   

Too often we’ve heard of “sharks in suits” who have no proper training…  

Giving terrible financial advice that can cripple folks’ wealth and make that lifestyle dream, well, a dream.   

In fact – hearing about these people are why we started this podcast in the first place!   

To help you avoid falling into the same situation, today’s episode will define who Property Spruikers are, what they do and why they even exist!   

More importantly, though, we’re covering HOW you can avoid them!   

We’ll be providing you with industry intel so you can also identify the main tactics they use (As you’ll hear with some spruiker “educators”…)   

AND we’ll explain how property advisors will act when they really have your best interests at heart!   

Did you know that Australia’s peak industry body, the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) can also help you verify your buyers’ agent if they’re a PIPA member?   

Yep, that’s right folks!   

There are plenty of good tactics that you can use to stay away from the sharks; to find out more just tune in to today’s episode.

Episode 009 | Buying Counter Cyclical

Buying in a heated market is kinda like jumping off a cliff because everyone else is jumping… 

…many investors start buying any old investor stock (Call it a classic case of the FOMO), but the problem is, how do you know that a heated market hasn’t already reached its peak before you even jump in?  

The answer is: Sometimes to get ahead, you’ve got to take the road (or cliff) less travelled! (We might be going overboard with this analogy)  

In this case, it’s using a counter-cyclical strategy.  

Today we’ll be exploring what this is, the benefits it can bring, and how becoming a borderless investor could be best for you!  

But remember folks: Each state has its own cycle, and it’s not always easy to tell WHERE the market currently is!  

To help you determine this, we’re sharing a fantastic resource called CoreLogic Monthly Housing & Economic Chart Pack. This pack allows you to see how each state’s property market has performed over the past 30 years! (Just click on the image to download the report now!)

The message today folks is it’s all about market timing and avoiding making rash decisions. To learn how to navigate both, listen in now!
