Episode 026 | Q&A – Property through Trust, Renovating Established Properties, Gentrification and Investing in Regional Centre

We have been receiving a lot of great suggestions and questions from our listeners! If you have submitted a question on property investing in Australia and have yet to hear a response from us, don’t worry. We will get to you as soon as we can. In this week’s podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be addressing some topics on:

  • Ep 26 of TPC - Q&A Property through trust, renovating established properties..Property in Trust from Christ : Can you address investing in trusts? In particular purchasing property through trust and transferring currently owned investment properties into a family trust
  • Tax benefits in renovating established properties from Christian : One of the topic that got me interested was Tax Depreciation, when you had Bradley Beer come in as a special guest. I already have a depreciation schedule, the one thing that plays on my mind – is whether it is worth renovating an established property? Is there a rule of thumb that I should use to determine whether my investment property needs to undergo a renovation? Is there a golden rule to this on when is the best time?
  • Gentrification questions from Andy : What is gentrification and its signs? Does this take a long time to happen? What are the positives and negatives of buying in a suburb that hasn’t had it or is in the process of having a face lift/demographic change? (I’m assuming that is what gentrification is?) Thanks guys!! The podcasts are gold!
  • Investing in Regional Centre from Lewis : Can you offer any advice regarding property investment in a regional centre? Often there are a lot of stones unturned in these markets. I am based 30km from the coast in Central Queensland and medium/high density development is a relatively new concept to most buyers in this area. However, recently completed projects have shown a real interest in this type of offering versus detached dwellings and I am wondering how to interpret this.

Episode 015 | Real Life Property Investing in Australia : Case Study

The Property Couch ep 15 Real Life Property Investing in Australia  Case StudyAs promised in our last episode (Ep 14 : Should we buy in a boom and are we in a property bubble?) this time on The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about a new topic suggested by Aaron, one of our valued listeners. He has provided us with a case study and we think it’s a great chance to discuss about real life property investing stories in Australia. Here’s a summary of the question:

“Why does some apartments that seem to tick all the boxes just don’t appreciate in price overtime? This block at Brunswick is close to the public transport, schools, cafes and lifestyle but based on the comparable sales, the apartments have only achieved very little if any price gain since 2010. Your podcast have been saying “Location First, Property Next”, but I’m confused with this property. Why is this place so cheap? If it’s because of the property itself, does it mean the location is not always the biggest factor? And finally, should investors seriously consider properties like this or stay clear?”

 

Start listening to the podcast to find out why this block of apartments is not appreciating in value and why they are not investment grade properties but more like investment stocks. If you are interested in investing in apartments, check out Episode 7 as well where we talked about investing in One Bedroom and Studio Apartments.

Episode 008 | Investment Stock vs. Investment Grade

The most anticipated topic is finally here! Investment Stock vs. Investment Grade Properties. Bryce and Ben had been talking about this for weeks and so, in this episode, they started off by explaining what they meant with investment stock and how it is different with investment grade. There are a lot of properties out there that are specifically built for investment purposes (investment stock) and we are certainly not low in supply on new developments but these properties do not IMG_20150417_091810necessarily guarantee good returns and growth (Investment grade). There are a lot more science behind asset selection and some investors are potentially becoming victims of bad property investment advices if they don’t know the difference. So, how do you determine if the investment property you are looking at is just merely a rock or a diamond in disguise? Listen to this podcast to find out more.

Episode 007 | Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property

Ep 007 - Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property - The Property Couch - Property Investing in AustraliaIn this episode, Bryce and Ben answered one of our listener’s question on whether studios or one bedroom apartments are good investment properties. This a great question and is often asked by many especially when we are seeing a surge in apartments around the city area. Technically, we are looking at this question in two parts. The first part is about understanding whether a studio or one bedroom apartment is a good choice of investment? And the second part is; are they are good investments if they are in the city?

Before we start discussing their potential as investment properties, we also need to understand the difference between a studio and one bedroom apartment. Bryce and Ben started this podcast by defining these types of asset class, the regulations surrounding them and how do they fare as an investment property. Listen to this podcast to find out more.

Episode 002 | Regulation vs Education

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the limited recourse borrowing arrangements (LRBAs) on Self-managed super funds (SMSFs). While it is good to have a set of regulation on this, what is more important is perhaps to increase awareness on how people can invest in property using their SMSFs. Investors often get confused on what constitutes an asset grade investment property and there are a lot of bad property investment advice out there. As this is a high value transaction, making a wrong decision can mean an irreversible damage on a household’s financial position. So, it’s down to regulation vs education and finding a balance between the both of them is absolutely crucial in the property investment industry.
