Episode 210 | John Hartill – How to Recover from Making Every Mistake Possible in the Investing Game

Folks, our Summer Series continues with ANOTHER ripper guest! And not only is today’s guest a very special TPC listener (!!) but also…. he is a REAL LIFE INVESTOR!

But there’s a problem…

John Hartill has learnt a lot of things the hard way. Unfortunately, he made mistakes along the way that, if we’re being completely honest, have cost him a small fortune. Over his property investment journey (expanding a couple of decades now) John has been spruiked to, sold to and, sadly, bought really bad properties.

The fact is… He’s tried every property investment strategy under the sun — buying house and land packages, developing property, renovating, investing in positively geared property — you name it folks!

And as a result, John’s had to learn the true cost of holding property and what’s at stake if you get your advice for free, buy Off the Plan or jump in without the correct education to support you.

And he’s here to share his personal story so that YOU can avoid making the same mistakes.

 

Here’s the gold…

Episode 202 | We warned you to Prepare for Winter… Did You?

Over 2 ½ years ago, waaay back on Episode 66, we warned you that Winter Was Coming…

The question is folks… did you prepare?

We really hope you did. Because if you caught ABC’s three-part 7:30 Report this week or you read the OECD Housing Report that came out on Monday, then you’ll know that the Australian housing market isn’t the flavour of the month at the moment.

We’ve all seen that the property market come off its peak, and this, combined with the credit crunch following APRA’s lending restrictions and the Banking Royal Commission, as well as the proposed changes to Negative Gearing and Capital Gains Tax has spread a ripple right across market sentiment.

In other words, you could say… Winter is here.

So, today we’re diving into what’s unfolding with housing prices and what we’re likely to see happen in the property market from here. To help with this, we’re revisiting what we discussed 2 ½ years ago — Episode 066 | Winter is coming and the air will be colder up high.

And folks, the similarities between what we said then to what we’re seeing now just might shock you! Those who acted early and pulled out the umbrella won’t be surprised.

BUT the real question is: what does all this mean for you and the future of investing in property?

Or do you simply want a straight answer to “What the heck is going on in the property market right now?”

We’ve got you covered.

 

Here’s the wild ride you’re in for…

 

The REPORTS and Media mentioned…

OECD House Price Report

ABC’s 7:30 Report – Latest figures from CoreLogic

And ABC’s 7:30 three-part video series…

House of Cards Part 3

 

P.S. It ALWAYS comes down to the fundamentals!!!

Episode 199 | Q & A – Future Proofing your Portfolio in a Changing Market

Folks, with State Election around the corner and the Federal Election less than a year away, it’s time to future-proof your portfolio.

The market has changed and will continue to change. We’ve also got some challenges in the Macro landscape as well — lending regulations, potential changes to negative gearing and interest rate rises, just to name a few.

So you might be asking yourself, “How is it still possible to build a property portfolio and earn $2K per week in passive income with all of this other stuff happening?”

And you’ve got a good point. There IS a reason to be concerned, but this does NOT mean you have to abandon ship altogether. Far from it.

So in today’s episode — before our Surprise Superstar Guest joins us next week for our 200TH EPISODE!! — we’re going to answer some of your questions about how to do exactly this.

 

This is just a few of the things we’re discussing:

 

Before we get to the questions, Ben is coming to all of you who are based in Perth! As the Chair of PICA of course. Details below:

When: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm AWST, Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Where: Queens Building, Lecture Room, Level 1, 97 William Street, Perth, WA
Cost: FREE!

Finally, the questions we’re answering today…

Question from Mirella:

When talking about earning $2,000 per week in passive income is this measured before or after outgoings; eg. rates, land tax, etc.?

 

Question from James:

Trying to build a portfolio whilst the future of interest rates and a change in government and a change to negative gearing could potentially impact the market. How should one approach 2019?

 

Question about market sentiment/right time to buy from Kirthika:

Thanks for this session guys! Quick Q… there’s a lot of media activity discussing the impending drop in property prices over the next few years. As a result, my husband and I are worried about investing now? in the event we could buy for cheaper in a year! What are your thoughts?

 

Question about increasing cash flow and paying off debt from Nipper:

I feel confident with how to select investment grade properties. But I’m not so sure on how to hold them then get to the cashflow stage. Do you propose changing loans to P&I or selling down some properties to then pay off the debt of others, or something else?

 

Question about having no equity from Dan:

You mention using equity. If you don’t yet have access to equity… do you have any tips to get started?

 

Question about realising equity for cash flow purposes from Kosta

Do you ever recommend using some equity release to pay the monthly repayments to improve cash-flow?

 

 

 

Episode 196 | Q & A – Negative Gearing Changes – Should I Still Invest in Property?

“Labor risks $12bn housing hit over ending negative gearing” — if you’re like us folks… this headline has us all concerned!!

And the concern didn’t stop at the headline.

As we read on, the full news article, published by The Australian on the weekend, highlighted that the $32 billion plan to end negative gearing would — quote — lead to a fall in new housing construction of up to 42,000 dwellings over five years and 32,000 fewer jobs across the country, according to independent modelling — end quote.

Yep… that’s a drop in a whole lot of new housing construction (ie. supply) AND just a-bit-more-than-a-few losses (up to 32,000) in jobs!!

Folks… this is crazy stuff.

And those stats aren’t the only ones coming out of recent independent research digging into the numbers of what’s likely to happen if negative gearing’s ditched.

So, today we’re looking at a few of the worst-case scenarios from two different reports (the links to both of these are further down in the show notes) and unpacking — with both a short term and long term view — how this change to negative gearing might affect the property market and those investing in it.

But negative gearing changes — and the possible consequences on housing prices and for first home buyers — isn’t the only question we’re answering today! We’ve got plenty of gold on how to time your exist strategy, retiring debt and the right asset to invest in!

 

Oh, and if you’d like the Geospatial Heat Notes — the heat map that shows the Compounding Annual Growth in Median Value for Houses from 1974 till the end of 2017 that is sourced from the Valuer General data —  you can get them here.

 

Back to today’s Q’s…

Question about Negative Gearing Changes from Shadi:
Hey Bryce and Ben. Thank you for all the information and for all the podcasts you provide. Apologies in advance if this question has been answered in previous episodes. I’ve been binging myself since episode 1 a few months ago, and am not quite up to date yet. I just have a question specifically about the abolishment of negative gearing and the impact it will have on first time investors. I’ve been looking to invest since listening to your podcast, and am interested to hear how this will affect my first purchase — whether or not it will just be a short term problem that effects cash flow or if it will have a long term effect, especially when entering the market.

 

Question about Your Exit Strategy from Anne-Marie:
Hi guys, this is Anne-Marie in Victoria. I’m 56 and my husband is 51. I started listening to you many years ago after we had our 7 properties. Our last property was 3 years ago. There all on fixed term interest only, which makes no offset available to them. And we’ve paid off our home, which is worth 1.1 million (1 of the 7 properties). It takes us $13,000 a year to hold all the properties, we just put our tax in, which is amazing. So property has done really well for us, and the mortgage we have on all of them is about 2.5 million, with domain value being low sitting at $3.9 mill, and high $5.2 with middle there all about 4.6 million. I want to start going into doing less hours at work — I’d like to retire on a passive income in maybe 4 years’ time. How do you transition to get the passive income we’ll need for retirement without too much of a tax liability? I paid about $10K in tax this year and I really don’t want to be paying a lot of tax while I’m getting to this point. Can you give me any pointers? And I can’t have an offset account as I said. I’d like some advice on this.

 

Question about the Right Asset for a First Home Buyer from Carrie:
I have a question about the best type of asset you should invest in. I’m looking to buy my first property, which I’ll live in initially. I have a budget of $750K. I’ve been looking at 70s and 80s free standing villa units in small blocks of 12 – 6 in Melbourne’s east. This puts me in middle ring suburbs around 20km from the city, with a land size of 350sqm. It’s a good balance between decent landmass without being out in the sticks. Alternatively, I could by a 2bdrm apt in an older, low density block — the type with only 2 or 3 stories closer to the CBD. Are either of these good investments? And which of the two is better? Or is there anything else I should look into. Love your work guys, keep bringing out those podcasts! Thank you
