    I want to sell - now what?

    I want to sell - now what?

    Selling a property sounds simple, and with homes turning over faster than ever, vendors are keen to list and get the best price they can while the market's hot.

    But selling can come with unexpected costs and roadblocks.

    Sharing her expert advice on all things selling, Shelley Craft, host of The Block and licensed real estate agent, joins us this episode.

    Then we dig into Domain's annual First Home Buyer Report, released this week. It shows the time to save for a 20% deposit on an entry-priced home has soared six months in Sydney, Hobart and Darwin and by 9 months in Canberra - in just one year.

    To unpack the results, and what it means for the broader market, is report author Dr Nicola Powell, senior research analyst at Domain.

    How to find a property bargain

    The market's hot. We know this. But is it even possible to find a bargain when prices have been rising so rapidly and demand is so high?

    Then, to unpack the rising trend of Australians moving from bigger cities to smaller cities, Simon Kuestenmacher, the co-founder & director of research at The Demographics Group, joins us.

    How to start investing

    How to start investing

    It seems property investing may be making a comeback: investor lending is on the rise for the first time in years and properties are still selling like hotcakes in today's climate.

    And, contrary to what we sometimes see in the media, you don't need to be a mogul with 25 properties to be considered an investor. So where do you begin on this journey and what are the risks involved for the average person?

    To unpack and explain the world of owning a portfolio, Founder and Managing Director of Empower Wealth Ben Kingsley chats with us on this week's episode.

    Then, Lifestyle Editor Ash Austen shares the best ways to fill your home with character.

    Will the market stay 'hot'?

    Will the market stay 'hot'?

    Is the hot property market here to stay, or are things starting to slow down?

    After rapid price growth across nearly every part of the country this year, we're starting to hear rustles in the wind that the property market may shift gears soon.

    To discuss the year that we've had thus far, and what we're likely to see through the next three to six months, we're joined on this week's episode by independent economist Saul Eslake.

    Then, we explore one of the most unusual but intriguing home features in the country: the ACT's energy efficiency rating, and whether other states should adopt it, with AllHomes Editor Josie Huynh.

    Does rent-to-buy work?

    Does rent-to-buy work?

    Getting into the property market at the moment can feel near impossible for a lot of Australians, plus it's causing some buyers to rush their purchase and nab whatever they can, before they know if they even like the neighbourhood.

    One option that's emerged is "rent with the option to buy" - certainly different to how the market usually works. It's offered by Assemble Communities; and to explain, the managing director Kris Daff joins us this week.

    Then, we chat about the federal budget and how it impacts the property and housing market, with Domain reporter Kate Burke and Domain deputy news editor Elizabeth Redman, who've pored over the budget papers.

Relevant podcast

Love this

Am obsessed wit property and I find this podcast explains things really clearly.

Lach C ,

Mostly good

Easy listening and covers current updates /topics for property market. Was a little disappointed with the last episode (22 oct 2020) and interview with auctioneer. Was too guarded to reveal the ‘do’s and dont’s’ and discuss the real games that are played by bidders/vendors/agents/auctioneer. So don’t expect any in depth or difficult questioning.
