Episode 213 | Jane Slack-Smith – How to Adjust your Renovation Strategy for 2019?

Guess who’s back folks??!

… Our very dear friend, Australian Property Expert and THE person you want on your side if you’re planning on renovating for profit… Jane Slack-Smith, Founder of Your Property Success and The Ultimate Guide to Renovation!!!

Not only has Jane built an impressive multimillion dollar portfolio of her own, but also this ex-Explosive Engineer (she’s a very smart cookie) has been equally successful at transforming her own clients’ lives, particularly when it comes to property investment education and strategic renovation.

We’ll say it another way: there’s no one quite like Jane in our industry — she’s grounded in the foundations of property investment and she definitely knows her stuff.

And, yep, you might remember her from Episode 61 | Finding the right property education and renovation tips – Chat with Jane Slack-Smith.

So, let’s stick with the vibe of our Summer Series, and simply dive straight into it, shall we?

 

Here’s what you’ll learn in today’s show…

Episode 204 | Peter Koulizos – What he’d like to do about Negative Gearing?

Folks it’s time to rip out the straw hat, grab your sunnies and chuck on your thongs… because TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF OUR SUMMER SERIES!!

Which means this: 2 Episodes of The Property Couch each week — Tuesday and Thursday — kicking off RIGHT NOW all the way until Thursday 31st January! Yep. That’s 7 unstoppable weeks of nothing but the best guests, double time!

And joining us for our first ever episode of the season to dive into the implications of the proposed changes to Negative gearing is none other than the Property Professor himself… Peter Koulizos! If you recognise the name, that’s not only because Peter is an industry expert who has been in the property education space for a very, very long time, he’s also sat on the Couch a couple times already!! We spoke to him about gentrification way back in Episode 30 and then again in Episode 47!!

Although he likely doesn’t need an introduction, we’ll clear up that, yes, aside from being a hands-on property investor himself, Peter specialises in property valuation and economics and holds a teaching degree, a Graduate Diploma in Property and a Masters of Business (Property). He lectures in Property Investment for Tafe SA, Uni SA and other property education courses all over the country. And he’s done all this for over a decade. Not to mention, the Property Professor also took over the reins from Ben as Chairman of Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA)!

So, let’s bring out the Summer cocktail and kick off the conversation shall we?!

Episode 188 | What’s Renovating got to do with Dating? Chat with Naomi Findlay

You heard that correctly, folks!

Renovating and Dating. YEP… turns out they’ve got something in common!

And to be honest — if it wasn’t for today’s guest, we probably wouldn’t have clued onto this comparison on our own. But, yep, you betcha… she’s definitely onto something!

Joining us on The Couch today is none other than Naomi Findlay, Australia’s Rapid Renovation Expert. And not only is Naomi the Principal and Founder of the International Institute of Home Staging, author of the best-selling book Ignite Your Property Mojo, but also she’s the host of digital TV Series The Reno Show and Location Lifestyle Living! PLUS (and this is where it gets even more interesting), she’s the creator of Rapid Reno Mate — the new app that’s made especially for renovators!

So, let’s just say — when it comes to renovating for profit, Naomi’s all over it.

Here’s why… these three best friends left their jobs to renovate properties, film the whole thing, and show Australians how to flip houses for a profit! AND they’re nailing it. In a really big way.

They’ve done flips, forever homes; the works. Not to mention, they’re also finishing up on house number 9 (yep)… so, let’s just say, they’ve got some hot renovation tips coming your way!
Oh, and did we mention… these women’s energy is seriously contagious… this is probably our funniest episode yet!!!
