BANKS PUT BRAKES ON INVESTOR LENDING

It’s getting harder and harder for serious property investors to get finance to purchase more properties.

To remove some of the heat from the housing markets over the last eighteen months our banks, under instructions from A.P.R.A., have been putting the brakes on lending to property investors by raising their interest rates and implementing tougher lending criteria.

HOW TO INVEST IN HIGH GROWTH PROPERTIES WITHOUT HURTING YOUR CASH FLOW

It’s the age-old argument: do you invest for capital growth or cash flow?

While most investors understand the benefits of capital growth properties, some feel they need the cash flow to stay in the game.

The problem with this is that it’s really hard to grow your wealth with cash flow.

4 LESSONS ALL PROPERTY INVESTORS MUST UNDERSTAND ABOUT PROPERTY CYCLES

Our real estate markets have surprised many on the upside this year– especially the Melbourne and Sydney property markets.

But now that this upward phase of the property cycle has lasted more than four years and with prices being so high, what lies ahead, especially as our banks keep tightening the screws on lending?

As I delved back into my memory to see what lessons I could learn from past property cycles, I realised that I’ve probably learned more from the many mistakes I’ve made than from the things I got right.

Now there’s a powerful lesson in itself!

Anyway…here are 4 key lessons I wish I’d learned earlier in my investment journey:

WHAT IMPACT WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP HAVE ON AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY?

What impact will President Trump have on the Australian property markets?

Will Donald Trump’s stunning victory prove to be a trump card for the Australian real estate market or will economic uncertainty and higher interest rates put an end to this property cycle?

While no one really knows what’s ahead, let’s look at some of the common questions being asked and I’ll give my view on things...

WANT TO GET STARTED IN PROPERTY INVESTING? GET ALL YOUR DUCKS IN A ROW

What do beginning property investors need to know?

That’s what I was recently asked in an interview for JetStar Airlines inflight magazine.

HERE’S THE ARTICLE THEY WROTE CALLED:

‘Getting your financial ducks in a row is key to successful property investment’

Investing in property is a popular path to building wealth but you need to know what you’re doing, especially when it comes to financial risk.

COULD WE REALLY HAVE DOUBLE DIGIT PROPERTY GROWTH AGAIN NEXT YEAR?

Sydney housing market prices could rise by 18% in 2017, and Melbourne house prices could rise by 17%!

Now these are not the predictions of a property spruiker, but those of leading analyst SQM Research’s Louis Christopher in his latest Housing Boom & Bust Report.

And with a credible track history behind him, it’s definitely worth looking into the assumptions underpinning these forecasts.

WHY CAFÉ CULTURE IS A KEY TO PROPERTY SUCCESS

Everyone knows that location is critical when selecting an investment property that will outperform.

But what makes a good location and why are some locations better prospects than others?

When I started investing around 40 years ago the emphasis for homebuyers was largely affordability and proximity to infrastructure.

The outer fringes of our capital cities were developed in the wake of freeway extensions on all sides and commuting from vast, newly born suburbs into the CBD became commonplace.

6 TRAITS YOU NEED IF YOU WANT TO BECOME WEALTHY

If you’ve been reading my blogs you’ll know I write a lot about what makes people successful

For the last 25 years I’ve been studying why only a minority are able to achieve their dreams and attain financial freedom.

And of course, luck only has a small part to play.

Sure you’re more likely to be successful if you are given a good start in life.

But most of us in Australia have been given the tools to make a real go at life.

We don’t need to spend all day wondering how we’re going to feed our families that night or walk for miles for clean drinking water like in other parts of the world.
