    "Can House Prices x2 Every 10 Years?" – Debunking the Doubling Myth ⎜ Ep. 1241

    In this episode, we discuss whether property prices can double every 10 years. 



    We talk about how fast house prices in New Zealand tend to double and how fast you should expect house prices to increase in the future. 



    This helps property investors get a sense of whether they should continue investing in real estate or they should start considering something else.



    We also mention that you can use our My Wealth Plan software to run your numbers to see if you're on track to hit your retirement goals.

    Converting Your Personal Home into a Rental: 7 Changes You Need to Make First ⎜ Ep. 1237

    Converting Your Personal Home into a Rental: 7 Changes You Need to Make First ⎜ Ep. 1237

    In this episode, we discuss the 7 steps property investors need to take before renting their own home. 



    This is because many owner-occupier homes are not ready to be turned into rentals straight away. 



    The gardens may need to be adapted, the walls may need to be painted, you need to have a key for every lock, and (most importantly), you must make sure the property is Healthy Homes compliant. 



    If property investors don't follow these steps, they could make costly mistakes or face fines from the Tenancy Tribunal.



    We also mention our webinar, which is on tonight (Tuesday 31st January) at 7 pm. Join us to learn how to actually start investing in property. Click the link to register.
