  • Melbourne & Sydney – A Blue Chip Property Investment

    CBD_Melbourne

    One question that continues to be asked by property investors around the country is “In what state should I buy my next investment property?”  When this question is asked, I always use the analogy of buying blue chip shares. In the share market, blue chip shares tend to be safe and reliable, in both good times and bad. The definition of a blue chip stock is that it is a high quality business, with a higher price because of public confidence in the company's long term track record of producing steady earnings. A blue chip company is very strong and stable financially and as an investment tends to behave reliably over time.

  • Capital Growth v. Rental Returns

    House

    People often think that investing for rental return in the outer suburbs, especially when they are starting out, is a good strategy. Because there is less competition from investors, the thinking behind this strategy is that you may ‘grab a bargain’. However, investing in property within 0-10km radius of the Melbourne CBD tends to achieve the best capital growth. This has again been proven with the latest results released by the REIV this month.

  • Finding the five percent of good property

    5-percent

    One of the most important rules when you begin a search for an investment property is to remember that you are not buying for yourself. You are not looking for something that would suit you or your lifestyle necessarily. You are looking for a property that will suit the needs of your target renter and will double in value in the shortest time possible.

  • 5 Key Issues of having no financial plan

    Finance Image

    Most people have no financial plan. In fact, many don’t even understand their current financial situation. As a mortgage broker for the past 15 years, I’ve known that for a while. When I conducted a survey for The Invesment Property Plan to find how knowledgeable people are when it comes to their own finances, I was shocked by the outcome. I sent the online survey to a wide range of people I’m affiliated with – staff in my office, business associates, clients, friends and family.

  • Why having a self-managed super fund is a super idea

    foreigninvest

    What do you really know about your superannuation? Do you know your current balance? What the fund invests in? How much money you made last year? Don’t worry, not many people do.

    But have you ever met the person who’s managing your money? Do you even know their name?

  • The Leverage Loan PART 1 - What is it?

    SZ best seller

    The leverage loan allows investors to be able to buy investment properties without needing a cent of their own money. It solves the problem of not having the deposit and costs available to let you buy investment properties. The leverage loan gives you an instant deposit and also acts as a buffer that pays for the shortfall between your ongoing loan repayments and the rental income coming in.

  • The Leverage Loan PART 2 - How does it work?

    SZ-best-seller--w150h150

    Most people who want to implement the leverage loan strategy usually have a home loan with outstanding debt on the property they live in. However, if you don’t have this but you do have an investment property, it works the same way.

  • The Leverage Loan PART 3 - How it works over time

    SZ-best-seller--w150h150

    Based on our calculations, right now if you bought a $400,000 investment property, you would need less than $26,000 to hold that property forever. Since records started, statistics show that property has double every 7.97 years, so we will make the assumption that property bought well should double roughly every 8 years.

  • Financial Treadmill

    Financial Treadmill

    Do you feel like you’re on a financial treadmill? Like no matter how fast you run, you still never get anywhere? It’s a problem that so many people experience.

    I’ve been helping people with their finances for more than 20 years and the same issues keep cropping up

  • Know Your Numbers

    Know Your Numbers

    Most people have no idea about their own financial situation. Conduct a random survey around your office or among your friends and ask what the interest rate is on their home loan. I bet only one or two could tell you. Ask them how much super they have and they probably couldn’t guess within five or even 10 thousand dollars.

  • Why The Statistics Matter

    Why The Statistics Matter

    Since the beginning of the 1970s Australia’s median house price has doubled every eight years. That’s a fact. But back then the median house price was only around $15,000. Today, it’s over $500,000.

  • Good Debt Versus Bad Debt

    Good Debt Versus Bad Debt

    My parents are part of that generation of Australians who were convinced that all debt is bad. The truth is, without debt, none us would get anywhere – we certainly would be able to afford to buy a house. And that would mean we would never accrue any substantial physical assets.

  • Choosing A Lender

    Choosing A Lender
    All lenders have their own rules, regulations and processes for approving loans. Just because one lender won’t approve a loan for the amount you want it doesn’t mean another won’t. And having a better understanding of how they work could be the difference between a bank saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to your application.
