News media is always happy to sensationalise an issue or embellish the facts to make sales but sometimes they go beyond what has always been known in the journalism industry as a beat-up. Sometimes, indeed increasingly often, what we are presented with is an outright lie – with journalists happy to present their customers with misinformation. It’s highly unethical and dishonest – and in legal terms there’s a word for it – it’s called fraud – seeking to make money dishonestly.
PIPA and Investors
I recently attended the annual national conference in Sydney of PIPA, the Property Investment Professionals of Australia. In many ways this is the most important organisation in Australia in terms of finding solutions to one of the nation’s most pressing problems, the rental shortage. PIPA comprises people who deal every day with the people who supply over 90% of the homes that people rent in Australia – private investors. They’re often referred to as mum-and-dad investors, because most of the people who own investment real estate are ordinary households on average incomes who own just one investment property. This very important cohort provides the product which is in short supply and it would make sense for politicians to encourage them in any way possible to solve the shortage crisis. But the opposite is happening. Private investors are being massively discouraged and they’re leaving the real estate market in droves, as the new PIPA survey graphically illustrates. And that, in essence, is why we have the rental shortage crisis.
The person in the image behind me is Australia’s dumbest and most dangerous politician. I know that’s a pretty big statement, because Australia is full of politicians who are none too bright and who have ideas and policies which would be extremely damaging if they everbecame law – particularly on issues relating to the housing industry. But this character is the pick of a very bad bunch.
Cheapies with Prospects
Now, more than ever, property buyers are seeking affordable options. First-home buyers are finding it harder to get into the market - through the combination of higher prices AND higher interest rates which reduce their borrowing capacity. Investors, too, are chasing more affordable options, because they also face the difficulty of higher interest rates and lower borrowing capacity pushing them into lower price brackets.
How To Predict Real Estate Better Than Bank Economists
The key to success in property investment lies in identifying locations which will outperform the general market over time and pinpointing the right time to take action. Essentially this means forecasting events in markets across the nation. But is this realistically achievable for the average Australian consumer?
The truth is that anyone can learn the basic tools for understanding property market dynamics well enough to determine when to get into the market and where to buy for long-term success. Indeed, the average consumer can easily outperform senior economists working for the major banks. Let’s face it, that’s not terribly difficult, given the poor track record of bank economists in forecasting house prices in recent years.
Leading buyers’ agent Kate Hill of Adviseable says her decades of experience in Australian real estate have revealed simple principles for pinpointing good places to invest.
On Wednesday 13 September, Hill joined Hotspotting founder Terry Ryder to discuss how prospective investors can learn the tools of identifying good locations and predicting likely outcomes with price growth. They exposed real estate’s greatest myths and misconceptions – fallacies which prevent many consumers from achieving success in property investment. Hill and Ryder presented case studies of locations which demonstrated the principles of finding growth markets and taking effective action.
Property Bull Perspective and excellent local knowledge
A great source for the property bull perspective and the ‘upside’ case post Corvid-19
However, Terry does critique the media for not having an in-depth understanding of the complexity of the property market.
I find it slightly ironic that Terry places strong faith in Chinese stimulus and a subsequent resource boom when his is not a China or Resources expert.
There is no mention that Chinas massive debt is concerning the CCP and their explicit goal to become a consumer economy and significantly reduce its demand on iron ore and coal.
With regard to resources, oil has crashed, this may become a contagion for other natural resources.
Terry has an anchor bias that assumes a boom because that’s what happened in the GFC. He may be right, but not pointing out the downside risk from China is an oversight.
Despite this I enjoy the podcast, his excellent local knowledge and micro post code perspective is great 👍
Generally good content although would prefer longer episodes. Sound quality is terrible. It would be great if Terry would invest in a decent mic, they don’t cost that much these days. Would be 5 stars if the sound quality was as per the 2020 standards and not 90ies.
Really enjoy the conversation between Terry & Drew on a topic that can be like a minefield. Adding this podcast to the list!
