Exploring “Scarcity” in Property Investment

Note: This episode is a re-run of one of our older episodes. It originally aired on 12th November 2015 😊  

In today’s episode, we dive deep into why the old adage of ‘location, location, location’ still rings true for property investment. We explore how 80% of your return is determined by where you buy, and only 20% by what you buy. 

One of the three filters in our asset selection criteria is scarcity, and today we take a close look at that concept. What exactly do we mean when we refer to scarcity in property investing? Are there certain elements in particular to look out for that will increase your property’s value? 

Throughout the episode, we’ll also underscore the importance of considering owner-occupier appeal in your investments, why developers favour high-density projects, and why smaller investors should hone in on scarcity in top-tier locations. 

Get comfy because this bonus episode is all about helping you understand the crucial role of scarcity and how it can ensure your next investment decision is a savvy one!

037 | Understanding the Scarcity factor in Property Investment

Scarcity. It is one of the three filters in our asset selection criteria and you’ve probably heard Bryce and Ben talking about it numerous times in previous podcasts. In this current market condition, it is more important than ever to ensure you nailed the scarcity factor right. But how do you determine if a property is scarce or not?

Ep 37 Podcast - Understanding the scarcity factor in property investmentIn this episode, our hosts will be breaking the scarcity factor into two parts and will be sharing their very own “Scarcity Scale”. As mentioned previously, location usually does the heavy-lifting on the performance of an asset so, Bryce and Ben will be starting with area/location (right side of the scale) and then move on to the property type.
