The evolution of rental property

Helen MatsoukasLeave a comment

The year is 2001. Its 6:45pm on a Thursday evening and I’m doing what most leasing managers were doing at this time of night: sitting on the phone with The Age classifieds. Why? To place my listing ads for the coming weekend’s open for inspections. The process is mundane, to say the least. The conversation goes back and forth until we have explored every possible acronym which minimises the number of characters used. Hopefully, this time our marketing spend doesn’t blow out… again!

Could house prices double again?

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

Property commentators regularly discuss the general rule of Australian real estate prices doubling every 10 to 15 years. This has been the case over recent decades, but some argue this will slow down. At Blue Wealth Property, our view has been that property price growth may not be as aggressive in the future as it has been in the past. With that said, positive sentiment has returned to the market following a number of helpful changes throughout 2019. Chief among these have been three cash rate drops and corresponding drops in mortgage interest rates.

More Australian families choosing apartment living

Luke GrahamLeave a comment

Australian house prices have been steadily climbing over the decades alongside a rapidly growing population. Despite government efforts, the bulk of our population growth (and thus, demand for new housing) has been concentrated in few major cities and regional centres. Until very recently, we Australians characterised ourselves in part by the quarter-acre block, but even those still living in houses are less likely to have a block that large.

New vs Old – What Offers More to Investors?

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Naivety to the rules of the real estate market can often drive the first time buyer to believe that cheaper properties make a better investment. The idea is that they are getting a better deal because they are paying less. In reality, when you take a closer look into what you’re purchasing it becomes evident that nothing comes without a price and if something seems too good to be true (or too cheap to be true) it probably is.

Buying in Your Suburb

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Property is such a unique investment and part of Australian culture. Holiday homes and Air BnB’s are so common in today’s society, and it can make property hard to treat the same as shares, gold, bonds or cash. Funnily enough, if you queried the majority of investors none would want to live nearby the headquarters of the company they had invested in, or close to the mine that the gold had come from. However, most of us want to buy in a market close by so we can feel in control.

Goal Setting and Property

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Measuring success can be a difficult task without having goals. Essentially a goal is a dream with a deadline. A “good” goal takes your purpose and turns it into something concrete and specific. A dream is to “own ten investment properties” where a goal is “I want to own ten investment properties by the time I’m 40”.

Property Sellers Reaping Strong Profits

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

It’s often true that the squeakiest wheel gets the most oil, and those who make the most noise will often receive the most attention. The same can be said for investors. An unfortunate truth is that when one investor experiences a negative result, they more than likely will voice their negative opinion, leading others to expect that they are in the same boat. This effect is ringing true throughout our market at the moment. Media headlines about shonky building quality, subjective valuations from lenders and even generalised market commentary are all petrifying investors into the idea that they are holding onto ticking time bombs.
