Episode 377 | Property Market Outlook 2022 – Chat with Nerida Conisbee

It’s that time of year when everyone is interested in where the property market is going… And so are we!

That is why we’ve gone and locked in a chat with Australia’s most quoted property commentator, Nerida Conisbee, a great friend to the show as well as Chief Economist at Ray White!

Before we spill all the great things on Nerida’s 2022 Outlook, we want to take a moment and thank all our Summer Series Guests!

It was an honour and privilege to have all of them on the show and we cannot thank them enough for their honesty and transparency on their transformation journey. And if you’ve been equally inspired by their stories, we want you to take action this year and get in touch with us when the time comes for the next Summer Series!

Now folks, back to today’s episode…

If you’ve been listening to us for some time, you would know that Nerida is no stranger to the show. With an innate ability to explain complex economic (and sometimes political) scenarios in a simple and easy to digest manner, Nerida will be reviewing the year just gone.

Of course, that’s not all! (This episode is called 2022 Property Market Outlook after all!)

We’ll be unpacking some of the expected market movement this year, interest rate hikes, affordability and heaps more!

Episode 363 | Exodus to the Regions – Will this Trend Reverse? – Chat with Dr Nicola Powell

This data is hot off the press folks!! 🔥🔥🔥

It’s no secret that property prices have grown quite a bit lately, but recent data is showing that we’re breaking records!

Here’s a snippet from Domain’s media release just a week ago:

September Quarter 2021 House Price Report shows Australian house prices experiencing a historical rate of growth at 21.9%, the fastest annual rate of growth on record with median house prices at almost $1 million nationally.

But…what does this mean for both sellers and buyers? Is this likely to stay or are we going to see a crash in the new year? Is this growth even sustainable with our current economy?!

AND…

Will the Regional Exodus Backflip?!!

There are heaps of moving parts here and we know it can get a little overwhelming…

So we’ve outsourced and brought in an expert to help us out.

And yes, we’ve been teasing you about her for the past few weeks so bring on the drum roll please…

🥁🥁🥁

Joining us on the show today is none other than Dr Nicola Powell, Chief of Research & Economics for Domain and one of Australia’s leading property market experts!

With more than 15 years’ research experience that spans academic, government and private sector, Nicola is the leading force behind Domain’s regular data reports that keep the Australian public up to date on what’s happening in the market.

Safe to say that we’re in good hands folks.

Tune in to find out more!

Episode 355 | Zero Debt & $2,000 A Week In The Bank: HOW?!

How can property investors reach zero debt AND still hit a four-figure passive income each week?
And what do we mean when we say “retire” the debt, anyway? What does this look like and, importantly, WHEN should you start this process?

Folks, in today’s special Q&A episode we’re circling back to a few basic principles and fleshing out some confusion when it comes to property investing. This includes clearing air (and tidying up our language!) when it comes to being informed of the step-by-step investing process.

For one – you’ve no doubt heard us talk about achieving $2,000 in passive income… well, WHERE exactly does this money come from? Is it just your rental income?

As part of this we’ll also be covering “Failure to Launch” principles and “Investment Remorse” – the latter, which may actually be a more common feeling than you think! So what should you consider if you find yourself second guessing your asset selection?

PLUS, because we’re officially in Spring – this episode comes with a WARNING about this year’s “Spring Selling Season”… ‘cos there’s a critical shift taking place ALL home buyers need to be aware of.

Suss the exact questions we answer below – or, better yet, simply hit play and get the gold now 😊

The Questions We Answer

Question from Stevo on “Post Purchase Restlessness”
Hi guys 12 months after purchasing an investment property, I’m starting to get this feeling that it might not of been a great purchase and also restlessness about wanting to “go again” and am worried the growth might not be quick enough compared to capital cities. I say that based on an old episode where you mentioned something about the limitations or a price ceiling in certain areas based on the demographics.

Obviously being a regional property, which doesn’t have the same wage potential as capital cities, am I exposed to the idea that the growth has happened and it won’t come again?
The property is available via this link. It’s shown growth over the past 20 years in capital and rental return.

For reference the idea of “inner city” living (albeit in Mildura) has exploded recently and is the driver of the growth over the past five years. The council and state govt have invested to upgrade the riverfront (very close to the CBD) and has completed stage one. Stage two has started to attract funding and small upgrades/extensions have started. Data suggest Mildura will continue to grow in population albeit slower than Geelong and Bendigo for example, however, it is still positive growth compared to other regional towns this distance from capital cities (which are often stagnate or negative). Major industries – agriculture and tourism, health, Govt. Sorry for the long-winded question and info.

Also, is this a normal feeling people get (delayed remorse)?

 

Question from Ebony on “When is the best time to sell your investments?
Hello, I have a question around when is the best time to sell your investments? My husband and I are mid 30s and have two investment properties. Right now, in our town the property market is a sellers’ market and prices are crazy. Our accountant has recommended that we should seek advice from a financial advisor and possibly sell both investments because they are positively geared and that we would be better off building a new home as an investment or investing elsewhere. I am really unsure about this because I think that we already have 2 great investments, and we would be potentially paying more down the track for land should the market stay the same. However, we have had one property for 2 years and the other for 1 year and could look at earning $100K off the sale of each investment. I guess it’s hard to know if the market will stay at these prices or crash when interest rates rise. Really after some advice from someone who is knowledgeable about property investments. Thank you.

 

Question from Paul on Retiring Debt
Can you elaborate on what you mean when you talk about retiring your debt? I’m confused by what you mean by this.

 

Question from Chris on “$2,000 per week in passive income”
Hi Ben and Bryce, Love your work. 👍 I’m not sure if you’ve mentioned it before, and you probably have, but I would like to know where the $2,000 a week comes from? Is it pure rental income (taxed) above expenses for the portfolio or is it accessing equity against capital growth (is this now defunct with new lending criteria?) or is it a combination of both? Thanks in advance. This is a major thought blocking me from moving forward. 👍

Well, we’re unpacking them all – and more! – in today’s Q & A episode where we welcome back ol’ mate Ben from his Big Trip by answering NEW listener questions about how to invest in property as an aspiring Australian in current property market conditions!

And it begs the question: How much money do you need to invest in property?

For example: if you have been priced out of the major capital cities or are a low income earner, what are your options?  And how can you balance both the investment strategy and this very real reality?

Plus, there’s a couple of unspoken property conversations we want to tackle, and let you in on some tips on how to take the emotion out of investing… and what to consider if you are considering gifting property to your kids or helping future generations to succeed…

The Questions We Answer

Question from Aaron about The “Unyolking” of Major Cities
In regards to the unyolking of major cities, what do you think that does to inner city suburb housing prices into the future? Do you think the appeal of these suburbs could start to reduce a bit and the property values will follow or at least slow in terms of growth?

 

Question from Anonymous on Buying in Ballarat, Bendigo or Geelong
Hey guys big fan of the show. I’m 26 years old and I’m currently to invest in a property but Melbourne is getting a bit too expensive, so I was thinking in the region in Victoria so around Ballarat, Bendigo or Geelong and my friends were thinking the same thing as well. I was just wondering what you thought about that. Thanks!

 

Question from Ross on Investing on Low Income
Good day guys. Love the podcasts, love the book and, like a lot like probably a lot of people who get in contact, with you wish I found you 10 or 15 years ago. Anyway, my name is Ross I’m 42. I only work as a mechanic, so I only make $52,000 a year before tax. Me and my wife have twin girls who are 7 and my wife is a teacher but she’s not working full time at the moment just doing casual relief teaching moments and looking to get back into it full time in maybe two or three- or four-years’ time. My question is she says we should wait until she’s working full time to look into an investment property, I say let’s do it now ‘cos I’m excited and I wanna get in the market, but our household income is not very much obviously mine being 52 grand, she makes around about 20 to 30 grand just depending before tax every year, but yeah my question mainly is, is there a minimum amount of household income that we should be making before we should start an property investment portfolio. We own our rent-a-home where we owe 100 grand on our own home loan at the moment and probably will have that paid off in a couple of years .

My main question is, Do you think we should wait on such low wages until she’s making more money or can we go for it now?

 

Question from Rosie on Gifting Properties to Children
Our mother is 73 and she is a single mum who’s worked hard all her life as a sole trader to be in a position to leave a property to each of her three children. She is finishing work soon and has decided that her children need these properties now at the most difficult time of their life with young kids, however, this means that she will not have these properties to live on over the next 30 years. What advice would you give her, having no superannuation? She’s decided she wants to go on the pension, but is now realising the tax implications of gifting these properties.
