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

Ep 007 - Studio or One Bedroom Apartment as an Investment Property - The Property Couch - Property Investing in AustraliaIn this episode, Bryce and Ben answered one of our listener’s question on whether studios or one bedroom apartments are good investment properties. This a great question and is often asked by many especially when we are seeing a surge in apartments around the city area. Technically, we are looking at this question in two parts. The first part is about understanding whether a studio or one bedroom apartment is a good choice of investment? And the second part is; are they are good investments if they are in the city?

Before we start discussing their potential as investment properties, we also need to understand the difference between a studio and one bedroom apartment. Bryce and Ben started this podcast by defining these types of asset class, the regulations surrounding them and how do they fare as an investment property. Listen to this podcast to find out more.

Episode 002 | Regulation vs Education

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the limited recourse borrowing arrangements (LRBAs) on Self-managed super funds (SMSFs). While it is good to have a set of regulation on this, what is more important is perhaps to increase awareness on how people can invest in property using their SMSFs. Investors often get confused on what constitutes an asset grade investment property and there are a lot of bad property investment advice out there. As this is a high value transaction, making a wrong decision can mean an irreversible damage on a household’s financial position. So, it’s down to regulation vs education and finding a balance between the both of them is absolutely crucial in the property investment industry.
