086 | Does All Property Double In Value?

Have you heard about the myth that all property double in value every 7 – 10 years? If this is true, it is certainly an irresistible offer! But if it is true, why isn’t everybody investing in property? Unfortunately, based on the report recently released by Core Logic (download link below), this is simply not true. In fact, only three capital cities in Australia had doubled their median house prices in the last ten years and so, for today’s episode, Bryce and Ben will be doing a bit of myth busting.


They will also be answering a question from Stacey:

Hi Ben & Bryce,

I have a question about the suburb of Cranbourne in Melbourne…

I recently went to a property seminar in Melbourne and the presenter was telling us that Cranbourne will be a big growth area in the future, along with Pakenham, Officer and another suburb I cannot recall. Do you think this is true? Only because my partner has a house in Cranbourne he has invested in and is renting out at the moment, and we are not sure whether to hold onto it or not.

Many thanks guys and I am loving your podcasts.

009 | Buying Counter Cyclical

Buying in a heated market is kinda like jumping off a cliff because everyone else is jumping… 

…many investors start buying any old investor stock (Call it a classic case of the FOMO), but the problem is, how do you know that a heated market hasn’t already reached its peak before you even jump in?  

The answer is: Sometimes to get ahead, you’ve got to take the road (or cliff) less travelled! (We might be going overboard with this analogy)  

In this case, it’s using a counter-cyclical strategy.  

Today we’ll be exploring what this is, the benefits it can bring, and how becoming a borderless investor could be best for you!  

But remember folks: Each state has its own cycle, and it’s not always easy to tell WHERE the market currently is!  

To help you determine this, we’re sharing a fantastic resource called CoreLogic Monthly Housing & Economic Chart Pack. This pack allows you to see how each state’s property market has performed over the past 30 years! (Just click on the image to download the report now!)
