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!  Free Stuff Mentioned FREE PROPERTY REPORT: Learn how your suburb is performing in this comprehensive 39-page report.

RBA Nov 2023 | Inflation – Material Enough?

Hey folks, it's that time again for our Monthly Economic and RBA update! This time around, Ben got his sight set on a few key things: RBA's November Board Meeting: We've all been eagerly waiting to see if the RBA is going to hike the cash rate again. This could mark the 13th time they've done it in this upward cycle. Find out more in this episode! Inflation Rant: Hold onto your hats because Ben got a bit of a rant brewing about inflation. Property Market Scoop: Of course, last but not least, the most popular part of Ben’s RBA updates…. the latest data on the property market! But before we dive into all that, we can't ignore the elephant in the room – the heightened geo-political tensions and the Middle East conflict. This isn't just a humanitarian crisis; it's also making waves in the global economy. All this uncertainty and instability is putting a damper on global economic confidence, sentiment, and investment. Plus, it's affecting oil supply, prices, and trade, which is basically throwing a wrench into the works of the world economy. Let's cross our fingers for some speedy resolutions in the Middle East and Ukraine to ease these troubles. But for now, the world is feeling jittery and there's more downside risk ahead if these issues continue to weigh on developed economies.  We know these aren’t uplifting news to share, but it's important to acknowledge the economic consequences tied to these global events.  And folks, if you're feeling the pinch with those rate hikes and worried about your cashflow in the next few months, we've got a couple of handy resources for you: A) MoneySTRETCH Tool on Moorr: This cool tool lets you play around with different scenarios and see how they impact your cashflow and savings right away. Learn more about MoneySTRETCH here >   B) Free Finance Checkup with our Award-Winning Crew: If you're looking to review yuor loans, our sister company, Empower Wealth recently snagged the Australian Brokerage of the Year award from the Australian Mortgage Awards, and they would be thrilled to assist you! Learn more about Empower Wealth's Mortgage Broking services here >   Alright, what are you waiting for?

The #1 Reason Why These Properties Soar In Value… While Others DON’T!

Not all properties are created equal. And there is a specific reason for this – what we like to call “The Psychology Behind The Price”. And this has EVERYTHING to do with human interest and human behaviour – something that can indeed be measured and, almost always, stays exactly the same… no matter who you are or where you live.Here’s the deal… there are two “types” of properties – Investment Grade and Investment Stock. And most investors are often tricked into thinking – or falsely assume – that what they think is a good investment is going to turn out to be, well, a good investment. And this is NOT the case. In fact, it’s often the complete opposite.This may come as a surprise to you… but the greatest investments – what we call “investment grade” properties – actually target the owner-occupier (that is, the home owner)… NOT the investor!And in today’s episode we’re going to tell you exactly why this is and give you the science behind what makes for an Investment Grade property and how to recognise one using the golden rule that underpins the value of property – Supply and Demand! Listen now to learn how to get a return on your investment property and keep it… simply by identifying high demand in the property market.Remember… Investment Grade = Great. Investment Stock = No good. Don’t forget, get further insights and “play along at home” by picking up a FREE physical copy of our book here: http://www.thearmchairguide.com.au/ Here’s a bit of what we cover in today’s episode…What types of properties almost always outperform others?What do we mean by “Supply and Demand” and how can property investors use this to get a return on investment?Investment Grade vs Investment StockWhat is “Owner-Occupier Appeal”?How To Identify REAL High Demand in The Property Market!Critical Supply Considerations and How to Identify “Scarcity” in the marketThe Three Biggies: Human Behaviour, Human Interest and Economic ActivityWhat Property Indicators should property investors assess?Why does the Demographic of a property market have such an impact on property prices?What areas will grow most in value?What is gentrification?Tips for Investing in Apartments Free ResourcesFree Book – The Armchair Guide To Property Investing: How to Retire on $2,000 A Week(please just pay for postage – we’ll pay for the book and send it anywhere in AustrLISTEN TO THE FIRST 20 EPISODES HERE >> MOORR MONEY MANAGEMENT APP: 👉 Apple: https://apple.co/3ioICGW 👉 Google Play: https://bit.ly/3OT86bW 👉 Web platform: https://www.moorr.com.au/ FREE MASTERCLASS:- How to Build a Property Portfolio and Retire on $2,000 a week >> FREE BEST-SELLING BOOKS: - The Armchair Guide to Property Investing - Make Money Simple Again FIND US HERE: - Website - Instagram - Facebook - Youtube

Bonus Episode: Don't Invest in Property Without These Four Foundational Levers…

The process of building wealth is like operating a bulldozer… What do we mean by that? Well, a bulldozer comes with a few levers that you’ll need to push and pull to make sure that it’s doing what it’s meant to do. Likewise, when it comes to building your property portfolio, there are “Four Foundational Levers” that you’ll need to adjust to achieve your own specific and unique end goal. …And the faster you can adjust each of these levers, the quicker you’ll get to your goal. To put this into perspective… Let’s say you’re building a house. First, you’d start with the number of rooms you need (the floor plan), then its size (the measurements), then the engineering (how it’s going to be built), and, finally, what it’s going to be built from (building materials). Without these things you can’t build the house as you planned to build it, right? Not to mention, if you changed just one of these things you automatically affect the other three. And, yes, the same applies when you’re building wealth. You need ALL four levers and if you adjust one you impact ALL the rest…. So. What are the Four Levers when it comes to building wealth? And why are these so important for a property investor?! Listen now to find out. Don’t forget, you can get further insights and “play along at home” by picking up a FREE physical copy of our book here: http://www.thearmchairguide.com.au/  Here’s a bit of what we cover in today’s episode… The Four Foundational Levers To Financial Peace and How They Work Together How To Use The Four Foundational Levers To Align Your Passive Income Target With Your Current Circumstance How can you PLAN your property portfolio? Why won’t a “Cookie-Cutter” approach cut it? How do you work out how much money you’ll need to retire? When should you start earning that passive income? What’s the difference between discretionary and essential spending? How much do kids cost?! Episodes from The Property Couch to Further Support You… Episode 072 | Dumb things people do with their Money! Episode 295 | How To Reach The Summit: Achieving $2K Per Week in Passive Income – Q&A Episode 200 | Paul Clitheroe – Timeless Wisdom from the Original “Money” Guru  MOORR MONEY MANAGEMENT APP:👉 Apple: https://apple.co/3ioICGW👉 Google Play: https://bit.ly/3OT86bW👉 Web platform:  https://www.moorr.com.au/     FREE MASTERCLASS:- How to Build a Property Portfolio and Retire on $2,000 a week >>FREE BEST-SELLING BOOKS:- The Armchair Guide to Property Investing- Make Money Simple AgainFIND US HERE:- Website- Instagram- Facebook- Youtube

Ep 437 | The Biggest Danger people face when looking at property data

When it comes to property investment, data is a very valuable tool for making informed decisions. However, looking at single data measures can be dangerous, especially when it comes to something as complex as the housing market. To truly understand affordability and sustainability, we need to consider a range of factors and look at the bigger picture.  Take median house prices, for example. This is a commonly used statistic that can give us a general idea of the state of the housing market. However, by itself, it can be misleading.  Folks, in episode 437, we have the perfect guest to help us unpack all things property data, what to look for and the dangers of looking at single data measures. We sat down with Kent Lardner, one of Australia’s best and most respected property data analysts. Kent has over 30 years' experience in the industry focusing on property data and analytics. We will be diving deep into:  🔣 The Dangers of looking at Single Data Measures  🔣 Looking at Median House Prices as a descriptive statistic 🔣 Affordability – What To Look For 🔣 Are Rent Rises Sustainable? 🔣 Kent’s craft and How it Influences his Decisions  🔣 And of course, unpacking everything going on in the market today  You're in for a massive episode today that’s full of knowledge and insights into what to look for when analysing property data! Tune in now or watch it here >>  LISTEN TO THE FIRST 20 EPISODES HERE >>MOORR MONEY MANAGEMENT APP:👉 Apple: https://apple.co/3ioICGW👉 Google Play: https://bit.ly/3OT86bW👉 Web platform:  https://www.moorr.com.au/     FREE MASTERCLASS:- How to Build a Property Portfolio and Retire on $2,000 a week >>FREE BEST-SELLING BOOKS:- The Armchair Guide to Property Investing- Make Money Simple AgainFIND US HERE:- Website- Instagram- Facebook- Youtube

RBA Cash Rate November 2022: Rate Hike Again But When Will It Stop?

While the race that stops a nation will have the eyes of Australians everywhere today, another decision drawing just as much interest has been released.  In the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) November release – which happens to coincide with Victoria’s Melbourne Cup Day – Ben breaks down our seventh consecutive rate hike from the data behind this decision to how can we, as consumers, can curb interest rates.  And, of course, it’s not a monthly RBA update unless it’s jam-packed!  We’ll hear Ben explain the headline changes (and 2 of his biggest disappointments) in Australia’s newly “reprioritised” Federal Budget, the darkening outlook on global growth, and his observations – and future forecasts — for our Property Market. Another gigantic episode that sees Australia continue to balance the tightrope between economic growth and inflation, tune in now!  Plus Ben unpacks these key themes in this month’s economic update: Global growth outlook continues too sour  The RBA is following through on its promise, because we continue to spend too much… Politics is a mugs game – there is just one problem – they control the economy Quick tip!

“It was almost considered rude in our family to be talking about how money is generated and how much of it is generated, and where it goes. We were sort of told to mind our own business…” Folks, we’re finishing our 2022 Winter Series on a high with a guest with an amazing tale that shows the undeniable power of changing your mindset to change your life… Today’s special guest – Alex – grew up in a household where discussing money was actually considered….rude :O.

“I thought investing was for RICH people, and that’s just what it was.

As Australia descends into winter, what better way to celebrate the chill than by kicking off our 2022 Winter Series?!  In this special edition series, we’ll be deep-diving into some of our listener’s personal stories, going behind the scenes to share their challenges and triumphs and exploring how they’re successfully investing in property thanks to the power of planning. We’ve got a very special lineup of guests, all with very different money stories but all with 1 thing in common… They’ve each faced and overcome life’s difficulties and “planned to become, what they planned to become”! Basically, we’re uncovering…how folks are creating long-term plans WITH short-term variations! To open our Winter Series, we’ve got a guest with a real “rags to riches” story – beginning as a refugee in the UK… “We were placed in social housing to begin with in a rough neighbourhood with high crime rates. It was not the kind of place you’d say hi to your neighbours. You’d just keep to yourself.”  Ever since she was young, today’s guest was exposed to the importance of money.  Relocating as a refugee from Vietnam, Kim watched her parents start from scratch, working odd jobs to save money, raising a family and eventually buying their own business.  So how did she evolve from her splurging years to owning 2 investment properties with her partner, well on her way to achieving a $180K per year passive income?!  This one’s a must-listen folks – Kim is articulate, funny and relatable as she recounts journeying to Australia with no job lined up, her initial wacky investing ideas and how long-term planning has helped her to find financial success. Thank you for sharing your story with us Kim – we’re honoured to be opening our first Winter Series with you!! Free Stuff Mentioned… Want to find out the #3 biggest secrets for successful property investing?

Evan gained experience at several top-tier global institutions and has worked with the likes of ABN Amro, the Royal Bank of Scotland and RBSMorgans!!  On top of debunking this idea, we’ll be uncovering…  Why the RBA has decided to lift interest rates now,  How inflation psychology actually works (plus how to flip your mindset around it!)   And of course, does this change mean you should go with a fixed or variable interest rate?!? Evan will also be sharing his money story growing up and explaining what the GREATEST ASSET you can buy with money is! So tune in now to cut through the noise and understand the who, what, and why behind rising interest rates!  Free Stuff Mentioned… Listen to the breakdown of the RBA’s May Announcement here! Read the RBA’s Statement by Governer Philip Lowe on its May Monetary Policy Decision.LISTEN TO THE FIRST 20 EPISODES HERE >>MOORR MONEY MANAGEMENT APP: 👉 Apple: https://apple.co/3ioICGW 👉 Google Play: https://bit.ly/3OT86bW 👉 Web platform:  https://www.moorr.com.au/     FREE MASTERCLASS: - How to Build a Property Portfolio and Retire on $2,000 a week >>FREE BEST-SELLING BOOKS: - The Armchair Guide to Property Investing - Make Money Simple AgainFIND US HERE: - Website - Instagram - Facebook - Youtube

383 | How to create an optimal mindset for investing – Q&A

Let’s face it…  Money is an emotional asset folks.

That’s why in today’s episode we’re uncovering:  What these bases are… How to control your emotions around money… Why people fall into an analysis paralysis… And ultimately how you can create the optimal mindset for investing!  But that’s not all – of course – it’s Q&A DAY!!

We’re answering the questions above, and more, including debunking the “too old to invest” mentality that many people fall into, why it doesn’t work and how it leads to unfortunate statics, like how 73% of all Aussie property investors stop at one property, and 91% stop at 2!Folks, we need to change this statistic which is why we’re exploring what our question-asker (and you) can do to avoid self-limiting action.  Bryce also lists some great examples of people who’ve only found success later in life; listen in if you need some inspiration.  PLUS, how you can use Capital Gains Tax (CGT) to best benefit you!  Yep.

373 | From Horrible Debt To Productive Debt: How He Transformed His Life – Chat with Ricky

The reason why money is such a taboo subject… is because of fear.When Ricky was a kid, money was an issue.Growing up in a family of 7, our special guest today confessed that there was unhealthy money education very early on. Although it didn’t feel like he missed a thing and his parents made sure him and his four brothers got everything they needed…He was still able to sense some tension in the family.You see, today’s guest grew up where credit cards and personal loans were the norm and he saw the effect of that chipping away on his parents’ relationships.And unfortunately…. those bad habits stuck to him. To the point that the day he turned 18 and was eligible to get a credit card, he got one. (And you wouldn’t believe what he got right away too!)Luckily, he met the love of his life who had great money senses and that managed to counter his bad habits…Life was going great until one fateful night at work initiated a very serious spiral into a mental health crisis – PTSD, acute anxiety and acute depression.All during COVID.Find out how Ricky managed to turn all this around and prove that whatever life throws at you, a passion to get better, perseverance and a hunger to learn will make sure you overcome this. Free Stuff MentionedFREE eBook – Make Money Simple AgainFREE MyWealth Portal & Start Your Financial Transformation Today!

360 | The XYZ of Property Pricing: Getting The Rules of Engagement Right

Imagine this…You found your ideal property in the perfect location. You’ve inspected it, you know exactly what the purchase price is going to be AND you’re pre-approved for that budget. You’ve spoken to the selling agent and is crystal clear with the vendor’s motivation. You negotiated some terms and put your best offer forward and BAM!! it got accepted right away. Happy days!Unfortunately, it’s probably NOT going to happen in the current market.When it comes to property prices, getting it exactly right would be perfect for buyers. But in a hot market, it’s very very hard for most buyers to nail it right away. Unless of course you’ve got a lot of spare time in your hand or you’ve engaged a professional to help you out. In today’s episode, we will share the XYZ of property pricing that our own buyer’s agent team are practicing and some of the tips that you can implement right away to get as close to the selling price as possible.But… are you wondering if it’ll work in the current market and with all these new ways of transacting?On top of that, with lockdown restrictions, how are you going to inspect properties and if you can’t, should you buy sight unseen?That’s exactly what we are going to unpack today.PLUS Bryce and Ben will also be addressing the big old Fixed Rate vs Variable Rate question. With the impending lending requirement changes (check it out in Ben’s RBA update), it’s probably best that you get your loan questions answered sooner rather than later!Tune in now for the gold!Q’s we answer further below  Free Stuff MentionedSummer Series is around the corner and we’d like to hear from you!
