A case study in holding long term: Parramatta

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

Short-termism is an interesting phenomenon that has strengthened in severity in many aspects of human behaviour since the turn of the millennium. Even the highest echelon of multinational business is regularly criticised for their short-term mindsets, known as ‘corporate short-termism’, and for the negative influence this has on both the economy and society in general such as the global financial crisis. The challenge of encouraging property investors to continue holding their assets has also become more complex. This tends to happen for two reasons:

Understanding Perth: is there a future beyond mining?

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

The Blue Wealth Research Team embarked on a reconnaissance to Perth last week to determine whether there is more to the Perth economy than just mining. It doesn’t take too much strain to recall the slow-down in resources that caused problems of varying magnitude throughout the Australian economy. Now that we are on the other side of the boom with mixed opinions on the future of mining in Australia, how do things look for Perth?

Are Apartments Invest-able?

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

When I was in Vienna earlier this year I had the opportunity to visit Sigmund Freud’s apartment which is now a namesake museum. The building ‘Bergasse 19’ was constructed in 1891 and was where Freud and his family lived for forty-seven years. It was also where he practised psychoanalysis research and consultation until the Nazi annexation of Austria led to his eviction. Apartments appeared in cities well before the nineteenth century and during the reign of the Roman Empire, houses in metropolitan areas were reserved solely for the wealthy.

Australia’s economic landscape is one that is continually changing as we shift further into the twenty-first century. Previously our economic roots were manufacturing and resources but recently there has been an emergence in the services sectors, with the financial centres dominating Australia’s gross domestic product. The continuing transformation of our economy obviously have flow on effects to the performance of our property markets.

More clickbait over the long weekend: Sydney house prices

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

The media extensively covered a ‘stalling housing market’ over the weekend, as monthly results from CoreLogic came out indicating a 0.1 per cent drop in the Sydney median house price from August to September. As seasonal factors typically influence how much property is sold and for what price over the course of a calendar year, monthly changes are rarely a good measure in the property market.
