We’re also making some projections into 2022’s capital growth, breaking it down to the positives and negatives we expect to see in demand and supply.

Episode 379 | Why Time is the Secret Sauce?

FOLKS if you take away one thing, let it be that the secret sauce to investing is…  

⏱⏰ TIME! ⏰⏱ 

That’s right! While playing the long game may be boring to some, we dive into why time is exactly what you need to achieve amazing returns. Don’t believe us?  

Did you know that investing legend Warren Buffet accumulated 99% of his wealth after he turned 50?!  

Yep. And to build on that, we’ll be unpacking some case studies that have achieved an 84% growth in their third decade and exploring the TRUE power of compounding. 

In fact…  

This ingredient is so important to property investing that we also did a Facebook LIVE session on this too, and today, we’ll also be uncovering some of the questions that YOU asked!  

 

Here are the questions we answered…

From Julian Bradley
Pros v cons. Investing in $600k in an investment grade property vs. 2x $300 investment grade properties. What is the better strategy if looking to source BA’s? 

From Brodiee Brodiee
When the property cycle is at the peak of the cycle and properties are generally overpriced, Is there another investment type/area that you recommend? 

From Pete Fairley
Hey fellas. Pete from the Adelaide Hills here. Im a carpenter and just starting up my property portfolio. Thoughts on if I should look closer to home within half an hour so I can do maintenance/ renovations myself, or would something further away with a little more growth and set and forget it? 

From Doug Slater
Love your work gents. Is it realistic to assume that property values could continue to rise 7% (on avg), over the long-long-term? I know past performance demonstrates this, but looking to the future, can wages continue to grow to enable this?! 

From Patrick A.
I purchased an investment property (2br apartment) 10 years ago but has only achieved 5% annual growth with flat rental growth. Is it time to sell & reinvest into property with land, or continue to hold the apartment? 

From Emanuel Bulli Camaj
Do you guys have a list of recommended brokers? Western Sydney if that helps.
