Episode 104 | 7 Ways To Lose Money In Property

After last week’s much-anticipated talk with Jan Somers who is an example of someone who has made many successful choices when building her 40 plus year old portfolio, today’s episode features Bryce and Ben discussing seven of the most common ways many of us lose money when investing in property. With key advice and some examples of how and why the choices we make as property investors can have a negative impact on our portfolios, the guys make sure to warn us and help us understand why these ways can cost you money rather than make you more.

The first way to lose money in property is choosing the wrong location. As they have mentioned in countless episodes, location does 80% of the heavy lifting when purchasing property so making sure you have the right location is one of the key things to look for. It covers many areas such as amenities, human interest and practicality; so getting it right means a lot to your portfolio. To find out the rest of the points, make sure you tune in to this latest episode!

And don’t forget, we will be at the Melbourne Property Buyer Expo this weekend so if you are around, do come and say hi! 🙂

Episode 007 | Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property

Folks, we’ve been sharing what we believe will make you into successful investors, but today, we’re turning the microphone over to you 

We’re answering one of the FIRST questions we ever received on our podcast from Matt:  

Ep 007 - Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property - The Property Couch - Property Investing in Australia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And what a great question it is! 🏠 

With the rise in apartments in CBDs around Australia, this is a common question we’ve been hearing, and we’re excited to get into the meat of it today!  

We’re breaking it down into HOW these two accommodations differ, the different types of asset classes you can invest in and the regulations around them… 

PLUS, we investigate density and spacing (More importantly, how it can create pesky glass ceilings for you)… 

Whether holiday homes are a better investment (Curveball, right?!)  

 And how lifestyle factors and the fading Great Australia dream impact our response!  

But before we let you jump into today’s episode, we’ve got a huge announcement!

We’re almost at 1,000 downloads!!

Episode 002 | Regulation vs Education

In a time of growing self-managed super funds and heated markets, what should we be valuing more: regulation or education??

…and looking at why education is important for ALL!

That’s right folks, many marketeers and those giving the advice aren’t receiving the right training 🤯🤯🤯 – tune in to find out why!
