Episode 009 | Buying Counter Cyclical

Last episode, we mentioned about Investment Stock vs. Investment Grade Properties and following that line of conversation, Bryce and Ben emphasized that some investors are just snatching up investment stocks now because they think that the property market is heating up and hence, are afraid of missing out. So this week, Bryce and Ben talk about understanding the property market trend and buying counter cyclical instead of chasing for properties which is potentially at the peak of their cycle already. This could potentially mean borderless investing for some of us and is especially true in Sydney where the property value seems to have overshoot the fair value.

 

Episode 009 - Buying Counter Cyclical - Core logic RP DataWhat investors also need to remember is that each state has its own cycle but it’s not always easy to determine where the market is currently at.

Episode 005 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Asset Selection

In this fifth episode, Bryce and Ben disclose the third part of our Four Pillars of Mastery series:  Asset Selection. In previous episodes we talked about Cash Flow Management and Borrowing Power but Asset Selection is usually what most people are interested in. Well, let’s face it. Inspecting a property can sometimes be much more appealing than looking through the numbers. Having said that, it is in no way easier and in fact, because it creates such an emotional aspect to it a lot people make the most mistake in this section. Imagine going through a property and it has all the shiny taps and the stainless steels (or rather “The Bling!” as Ben put it), it can be quite tempting to just sign on the dotted lines and claim it your own. Bryce and Ben explains why you shouldn’t be affected by these things as a property investor and instead, to look at the other areas that are much more important.

What are the other aspects of Asset Selection that you should focus at?

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.
