    Are all those property investors crazy?

    Are all those property investors crazy?

    If you want to become a more successful property investor, today’s show is just for you. I’m going to discuss how to become more successful as an investor by discussing two separate concepts with you. Are all those other investors crazy? The ones who don’t reach success? We’re going to have a talk about that.
    Then I’m going to share with you one thing you’re going to have to change to get more successful.
    Are all those other property investors crazy?
    Around 8.6 million Australians bought a lottery or scratchy ticket in the last year. That’s around 44.8% of our 18+ population. Who is buying all these tickets?
    When you do the maths, you might think they must be crazy.
    Fact is: No one is crazy.
    The decision to buy a scratchy, a lottery ticket, or an off-the-plan property or a house and land package or whatever must make sense to them at that moment and ticks all the boxes they need to check.
    I’ve often written about how we’re not rational when making investment decisions – we’re subject to behavioral biases.
    I’ve been a student of behavioural finance for years trying to understand why investors keep making the mistakes they keep making, when the end results of their actions – the negative consequences of the decisions they make – seem so obvious to me.
    People are often wrong, but few are crazy.
    Be careful taking cues from other people when you have no idea what they’re thinking Many finance and investment decisions are rooted in watching what other people do and either copying them or betting against them.
    But when you don’t know why someone behaves as they do, you won’t know how long they’ll continue acting that way, what will make them change their mind, or whether they’ll ever learn their lesson.
    No one is crazy, including you. But everyone justifies actions based on poor reasoning, including you.
    Few people make financial decisions purely based on logic and by using research and spreadsheets.
    The bottom line:
    The fun part of behavioral finance is learning about how flawed other people can be.
    The hard part is trying to figure out how flawed you are, and what stories make sense to you but would seem crazy to others.
    That’s why when making significant property decisions it’s important to have a team of independent, unbiased advisors on your side.
    Here’s one thing you need to change to become a successful property investor
    I’ve found that for most property investors to change their level of wealth, they must change. 
    Why is change difficult for many of us? 
    Because change makes us move out of our comfort zones. We tend to believe that if we stick with what we know, with what is familiar, then we won't get hurt. In terms of wealth creation, it’s not what we know that’s holding many of us back.
    It’s what we think we know that isn’t so that is holding us back.
    I’d like to discuss why many Australians are not as far advanced with their wealth creation as they would like to be.
    What holds most of us back?
    It’s our Wealth Operating System ™ – our financial blueprint – the programming we received as a child.
    It is no coincidence that your inner world creates your outer world. So, one of the first steps in change is changing your thoughts. How do you think about money, success, and prosperity? 
    Remember:
    Your thoughts lead to your feelings, your feelings lead to your actions and your actions determine your results.
    So, money is a result, wealth is a result, and your health is a result. Your results in all these fields have been caused by you – by your actions. The problem is for many Australians their thermostat is not set for Wealth. Many of us need to intentionally change our inner world – our way of thinking.
    Firstly, we need to change the way we think about ourselves.
    Why are we scared of change? The only constant in the world, the only thing you can absolutely count on, is change itself.
    Results change when people change th

    The rise and fall of Australia’s Biggest Cities, with Simon Kuestenmacher

    The rise and fall of Australia’s Biggest Cities, with Simon Kuestenmacher

    Today I’d like you to come on a journey with me and leading demographer Simon Kuestenmacher.
    First, we’ll go back to the 1950s, then forward to today, and then forward again to 2054. We’ll look at how our cities have changed and will change even more over a century as the Australian nation transitioned from a colonial outpost to a cosmopolitan global community.
    We’ll delve into Simon’s latest research which tells a powerful story about our nation. It reveals the lifestyle preferences of the Australian people and the drivers of demand for residential property, something all property investors need to understand.

    Here’s how to prepare for the upcoming downturn with Jarrad Mahon

    Here’s how to prepare for the upcoming downturn with Jarrad Mahon

    How am I preparing for the upcoming property market slowdown?
    That was a question posed to me by Jarrad Mahon for his Perth Property Insiders podcast, but we discussed much more than what’s happening in Western Australia.
    And that’s why I asked if I could share the recording of that show with you, which is what you’ll be hearing in a moment because we discussed what I believe is ahead for our property markets, what I’m doing personally to protect myself, and what you can do to ensure that you make the most of the current market and don’t become a casualty of the economic and property changes ahead.

    Here are details of some of the properties we recently bought, with Brett Warren

    Here are details of some of the properties we recently bought, with Brett Warren

    Last year you could buy almost any property, go away on holidays (even though you really couldn’t because of Covid) and when you came back you would have been richer than when you went away.  But that was a once-in-a-generation property boom that made almost anyone who bought a property look like a smart investor. If history repeats itself, and most likely will, many investors will come to regret the hasty purchases they made last year. On the other hand, at Metropole, we were very selective in the type of properties we bought to ensure our clients' investments would outperform the markets in the short-term and the long term.
    So in today’s podcast, I chat with Brett Warren about the type of property his team of buyer’s agents bought for our clients, and hopefully, these case studies will give you some insight into how to choose an investment-grade property.

    The Big Picture – economic and property trends you must understand – June 2022, with Pete Wargent

    As we sit here today inflation is the highest it’s been for years, interest rates are rising and people are wondering how high they will go, plenty of tech stocks are down by up to 50%, the war in Ukraine continues, and supply chains are broken, the pandemic is lingering, China is in lockdown, we have a new government, and on and on.
    Somehow it feels like there’s more economic uncertainty than there has been in years. Even though that’s probably not the case
    But what does all this mean for Australia’s economy and our property markets?
    Since these don’t operate in isolation, each month I take time out to have a look at the big picture, the macroeconomic factors affecting not just Australia, but the world economy in these Big Picture Podcasts with Pete Wargent, in our attempt to give you a little more clarity on what’s ahead.

    Proven strategies to boost your investment property’s rent, with Leanne Jopson

    Proven strategies to boost your investment property’s rent, with Leanne Jopson

    If you’re a property investor you probably want to increase your rental returns.
    And while you’ve most likely enjoyed strong capital growth over the last couple of years, moving forward this is likely to be more subdued – meaning getting better rentals is going to be even more important.
    So how do you do this without losing tenants?
    That’s what I’m going to chat about today with Leanne Jopson, national director of Property Management of Metropole so that at the end of today’s podcast you’ll have some hints about how, when, and how much you can increase your rents.

Getting back on track

Hi Micheal,
I have accidentally came across your podcast.
I have listened to quite a few episodes and made a plan to listen to one per day during my early morning walk.

I throughly enjoy the topics and it made me to get back to property investment after a few personal event in my life that de-railed me from my reasonable progress of property investment journey.

What I am hearing is making perfect sense, I will start my journey again this time with Metropole guidance and looking forward to meeting Rita Thomas to discuss the strategic planing.
