Report: Is My Property Portfolio Enough?

Are you already an experienced property investor? If so, maybe you’re wondering if you need to buy more properties to build up your portfolio and create the passive income you’re chasing? Or maybe you have one or two investment properties under your belt, but aren’t sure what strategic step to take next? Or perhaps you’re even floating the idea of investing through a self-managed superfund, but aren’t sure if it’s a suitable option for you?

Wherever you’re at, as an experienced investor it can be challenging to way up how your current portfolio is performing, how often to review your properties or even to know if you need to continue investing, especially given the fact that you don’t want to risk all of the hard work and effort you’ve already put in.

And as experienced investors ourselves, we get it.

Episode 242 | Proof That You Can Get on the Property Ladder AND Invest in Property in Your 20s – Chat with Courtney Te’ray

Let’s face it. There’s a lot of millennials and first home buyers among us who are frustrated and struggling to get onto the property ladder. And we don’t blame them!

It’s hard work hauling yourself up on that first rung… and it can seriously knock you around, especially if your friends are out “brunching” and you’re choosing to stay home again and… save more money. Are we right?

Believe us… we feel ya, folks! If you’re just starting out, often times it can seem like you’re making snail-pace progress, so much so that it becomes all-too-easy to believe there’s zero point to your efforts at all. So, guess what?? We’ve got your back… ‘cos you’re actually NOT alone and, as a matter of fact, it pays (quite literally) to check in with someone you can relate to who has been exactly where you are, has seen success and can help you get over the line (or at least know that, yes, it IS possible!).

That’s why we’ve got Courtney Te’ray on The Couch today!!


And at 28, it would be easy to confuse Courtney as a stereotypical millennial — you know, “smashed avo”… “living in the now”… and “delayed gratification” a WORLD away — BUT in actual fact… Courtney is ANYTHING BUT this….

She and her partner Aaron have been slowing chipping at their own property portfolio and putting into practice “If it’s meant to be… it’s up to be”.

And the thing you might find a lot of comfort in, is they’ve invested in property on ordinary incomes — to give you an idea, Courtney has NEVER earned more than $60K while building up this Property Portfolio

Impressive, right?!

Want to know how she did it? And how thinking (and acting) differently can ultimately set up your future for life??

And if you’d like to learn more about her backstory, check out her video here!

Episode 240 | Is Now The Right Time to Buy a High Rise Apartment? – ft. Bonus Q&A

Folks, things sure have been heating up in the high rise apartment space recently and we MUST address a seriously important question, for property investors and home owners alike…

Should you be considering buying high rise apartments in the wake of some very high profile cases revealing significant issues??

We’re talking about the high-rise apartment evacuations that’ve been happening our main centres due to building defects — Opal Tower, Mascot Tower, LaCrosse apartments and Neo 200 —which have resulted in cracks to main structures, severe and unsafe water damage, FIRE (such as the cladding fire in Melbourne’s CBD) … all things that we can all agree are very problematic. Not to mention are also leaving a fair few folks homeless, out of pocket and fed up!

So, not only are you likely to struggle to get a return from high rise apartments, it’s evident that some (we’re definitely not saying all here) may pose a safety risk as well.

But if 1 in 5 wanting people are actually WANTING to live in apartments (which is up from 1 in 7 in the 1990s)…. it can definitely be argued that there IS a growing demand for one/two bedroom living… the question is… What should you be considering (and avoiding!) if you are wanting to invest in apartments?

And when it comes to high rise buildings, has the landscape well and truly changed?

… We’ve thrown in a Bonus Q & A to answer your specific apartment Q’s too, folks!!
