FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is certainly here in this hot property market, folks! 

Let’s be real… the “Great Australian BBQ Topic” is officially on steroids right now  a combination of low interest rates, rising property prices and lack of supply in the market is seeing all sorts of people jump in on the property party they perceive everyone else is enjoying.

A hot market — like the one we’re currently experiencing  is the perfect storm for property buyers to make mistakes and land themselves in hot water by stretching themselves too far, act without thinkingfall into the “herd” mentality or disregard that FOMO is paradise for Spruikers!! 

As a follow on to our 3-part mini-series on how to win in a HOT property market, today we’re tackling the Top 10 FOMO mistakes property investors make… because we DON’T want to see you getting burnt out there or Realising Too Late that you fell into the trap of Irrational Exuberance!! 

So, strap yourselves in folks… ‘cos we’re about to give you some TOUGH LOVE!

Episode 326 | How To Win In A HOT Property Market (Part 2) – The Step-By-Step Process!

Part 2 of “The Step-By-Step Process To Win In A HOT Property Market” is HERE…

… and today’s episode is all about two things:

  1. The SEARCH for the property…
  2. The DUE-DILLEGENCE around the search and the finance (lending) for that property!

Folks, as we mentioned last week in Part 1 of this 3-part mini-series… we are in a HOT property market – listings are TIGHT.

Properties are selling in the blink of an eye.

And pretty much every major and secondary market across the country is SMOKIN’…

… so if you’re a property buyer playing in “The Big Wave”, it’s vital you educate yourself so you stay in front of the curb (while NOT getting swept up in FOMO) – this way, you can ultimately enjoy the ride and, yep, the fruits of your smart efforts!

We’ll be unpacking quite a bit in this episode, and you’ll be getting plenty of tips on how to conduct your search to find an investment-grade property (incl. what WE personally and professionally do and look for!)… and let you in on “The Top 3 Deal Does” and “Top 3 Deal Breakers” in a HOT property market… as well as how to be due-diligent with your finances, ESPECIALLY in a market that is moving at a rapid pace.

Remember – stay informed, don’t do anything irrational right now… and ONLY IF you’re in a position to “push play”, move quickly but SMARTLY.

… What a ride we’re in!

 

P.S. – Part 1 was all about the backdrop of how we got to this HOT property market, how to get your PREP work done and figuring out your brief… this ep’s getting into the nitty gritty of the property and lending story!!
