Terry Ryder on #gotmoney property update
Terry Ryder joins Elizabeth Jackson from Joy FM to talk about the big disconnect between the mainstream media “doom and gloom” narrative about real estate and what’s really happening for the 2/3rds of the population, who live outside the major capital cities. According to Terry, outside the big cities, where there are strong markets and low vacancy rates, its just about the best time ever for new home buyers or renters. They take a data trip around the capital cities to see where the recovery is happening fastest (spoiler alert it's Hobart and Perth) and try to gauge when Sydney and Melbourne (and the MSM) will catch up.
How To Make Your Property A Standout For Tenants
How To Make Your Property A Standout For Tenants
The investor survey conducted recently by hotspotting.com.au found that the No.1 factor for investors was attracting better tenants and achieving better rentals.
But how do you achieve that in a competitive market?
Expert Mark Shorrock of Bluestone Property Management says making basic improvements to your property can make all the difference.
He says: “If you take steps to better present your property, it definitely makes a difference. It makes it more tenantable, it reduces vacancy periods, it helps to get a better tenant and it helps to achieve a higher rent - and the tenant is more likely to stay for a longer period if it's a well-maintained property."
Hotspotting founder Terry Ryder will host a special webinar event on Wednesday 21 October to discuss how investors can achieve an edge in the rental market.
He will be joined by Mark Shorrock of Bluestone Property Management, who will provide a series of tips on how investors can make their property stand out from the crowd.

How Timely Advice Can Save You A Small Fortune
Legal advice at the right time is essential for investors
It's important for investors to build their team before they build their property portfolio.
One of the critical members of any investor's team is a lawyer who specializes in real estate.
Investors must seek expert input before signing contracts and before deciding on essential questions, including the right structure to buy the property.
Too many seek to cut expenses by avoiding this essential advice and end up costing themselves thousands of dollars.
This webinar, hosted by Terry Ryder with special guest Tom Wood of FC Lawyers will explain the critical importance of legal input to any investment strategy and will present case studies on how expert advice can protect consumers and save them from costly mistakes.
Good News Bulletin 13 October 2020
Three important pieces of research were published today by SQM Research, which is one of Australia’s most useful sources of data on real estate markets across the nation.
The figures depicted the latest situation with house prices, vacancy rates and rents – and they all add to the generally positive scenario for housing markets in Australia.
And the three sets of figures also show that Sydney and Melbourne are the exceptions to the rule.
The data on vacancies shows that the national average vacancy rate in September was 2%, unchanged from August.
But looking at the detail, five of our eight capital cities have vacancy rates below 1% - that’s Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin and Hobart.
The figures show that vacancies in these cities continue to get tighter.
Brisbane is a little higher but still tight at 2%, down from 2.1% in August.
The two biggest cities are different, both have vacancy rates above 3%, with the inner-city areas considerably higher.
But six of the eight capital cities have very low vacancies.
And this is reflected in the data on residential rents.
Those six capital cities with very low vacancies all have rising rents – headed by Perth where house rents have risen 7% in the past year, while Adelaide is up 5% and Hobart 4.5%.
Sydney and Melbourne are, again, the exceptions. Rents for both houses and apartments have dropped in the past month and in annual terms.
Residential rents in Sydney have dropped 9% in the past year, according to the SQM Research figures.
I know from my day-to-day research that vacancy rates are ultra-low and rents rising in regional centres throughout Australia.
Today SQM also published its weekly report on prices for houses and apartments.
The figures show that prices have grown or shown no change in the past month in all capital cities except Sydney.
In annual terms house prices have risen in seven of the eight capital cities – everywhere except Darwin.
Hobart is the outstanding performer on prices among the capital cities, with houses up 9% and apartments up 19%.
The national average situation for houses was a 0.4% rise in the past month and a 4% rise in the past year.
For apartments, there was a small decrease in the past month, but a 4.7% increase over the past 12 months.
Generally speaking, the figures published today by SQM Research shows similar results on vacancies, rents and prices to figures from other major sources, including Domain and CoreLogic.
They all depict solidity and resilience in most markets across Australia.
Ryder Report October 2020
The new October 2020 edition of The Ryder Report has been framed at a particularly exciting time for real estate markets across Australia.
As I was writing this report, the data on property price performance during September was published.
The CoreLogic figures showed that six of the eight capital cities produced price growth in September and the SQM Research figures indicated that seven of the eight cities delivered some level of price growth.
And most of the regional market jurisdictions also had growth.
According to SQM Research, the national average performance in September was a strong 1.2% rise in house prices and a smaller rise for apartments.
This continues the resilient performance of real estate markets throughout the pandemic period.
In the past seven months since Covid-19 hit Australia, our cities and our regional markets have delivered growth in most of those months.
Some, like Canberra and Regional Tasmania, have had growth in every one of the past seven months.
Another key factor which I emphasise in this new edition of The Ryder Report is that vacancy rates are not only low, but ultra low, in most markets around the nation.
Vacancy rates below 1% are the norm now and this is putting upward pressure on rents.
Against that background, and with the Federal Budget providing massive stimulus to generate economic growth and jobs, I’m predicting a national property boom in Australia in the near future.
We already have rising momentum in most markets across the nation. The early indications are that, as the restrictions are eased, Melbourne is going to come charging out of lockdown with renewed enthusiasm for real estate.
One of the biggest generators of the real estate boom will be the massive spending on infrastructure.
It’s clear that federal and state governments are planning an infrastructure-led economic recovery – we saw the first tangible evidence of that in the Federal Budget.
And nothing energises property markets like big spending on big infrastructure.

It all in there. Don’t miss it.
Customer ReviewsSee All
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.
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 👍
Really enjoy the conversation between Terry & Drew on a topic that can be like a minefield. Adding this podcast to the list!
