G'day my name is Jeremy Calnan and I'm the host of Property - Australia's Favourite Obsession (PAFO).

Everybody loves property, we buy it, we sell it. We feel it every day in the city and in the country as we live in apartments, flats, townhouses, on quarter-acre blocks and in courtyard homes.

Every minute of every day our lives are touched by property as we visit shopping and medical centres, eat in restaurants and hotels, attend school, the office or any other places of work.

Our leisure time is spent in cinemas and theatres, parks and in sporting arenas.

We can't get away from it - everybody has a connection to property, as a tenant, a homeowner or as a landlord; hence our obsession with it!

    Vince Beiser - The Sand Mafia

    Vince Beiser - The Sand Mafia

    This is an incredible story about the very ingredient that makes possible our modern cities, science.
    It has revolutionised civilization and is the basis on which our future will be built.
    From Egypt’s pyramids to the Hubble telescope, from the world’s tallest skyscraper to the footpath below it, from the Stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral to your iPhone.
    It is the third most consumed substance on earth, only behind air and water.
    It shelters us, empowers us, engages and inspires us. It’s the ingredient that makes possible our lives.
    We are here to talk about SAND!
    And here to talk with me about Sand is award-winning journalist and author of the book The World in a Grain: The Story of Sand and How It Transformed Civilization. Vince Bieser
    Sand is a Super-Substance which provides endless examples of continually being the basis of our productivity gains.
    Throughout history Sand has interacted with our five drivers of Property
    Technology
    Infrastructure
    Population
    Government Granted Licenses
    Credit
    And this is what we will talk about today - how sand has impacted our lives:
    Without sand, there is NO modern civilisation
    Our entire modern civilisation and complete economic development is based upon concrete, glass and Silica - and that requires sand.

    Quick Hits #11 - Moore's Law doesn’t apply to property

    Quick Hits #11 - Moore's Law doesn’t apply to property

    In this episode Jeremy Calnan explains how Moore's Law relates to technology, one of the drivers of property prices. Moore (pardon the pun) importantly how property and land are completely different and in a league of their own when it comes to the relationship between time, productivity and price. This is a concept we will continue to explore on the podcast as it is essential to understand as an investor.

    Rhiannon Evans - The Empress of Rome

    Rhiannon Evans - The Empress of Rome

    Today we are traveling back to Ancient Rome to see ALL of our drivers in action!
    And who better to help guide us around the Ancient Empire of Rome than Associate Professor Dr Rhiannon Evans from LaTrobe University.
    Rhiannon co-hosts a podcast called the Emperors of Rome and when I first heard it I thought "WOW there are our 5 Drivers again!"
    As listeners If you can recognise the drivers in an ancient society then hopefully I can help you recognise them in todays.
    Those of you who have followed my work for some time will have heard me say over and over again how things are "Same, Same, but Different"
    That history repeats and as much as things change, they don’t.
    History shows us that humans have always had and always will have a connection to land. Our very existence depends on it and if we view history within the context of the time we will see the 5 Drivers of Property Prices are always apparent.
    And this episode is NO different.
    Its all about those same 5 Drivers that underpin and continue to propel property prices higher and higher.

    Quick Hits #9 - Before you buy an apartment...

    Quick Hits #9 - Before you buy an apartment...

    In this Quick Hits Episode Jeremy is joined by Omar Moujalli from Examine Property to discuss the "5 Critical Consideration BEFORE you buy an apartment". These considerations include:
    Demographics - This is where your research should start! It is imperative that the type of property that you are considering matches the demographics of the area. The expectation and demands will be very different between white-collar "DINK" professionals without kids and that of the demands from a blue-collar family that include kids! Are 1, 2 or 3 beds in demand? Is a study required?
    Matching your property the demographic demands can mean the difference between a great performing property and one that has serial vacancy's forever requiring you to reduce your rent in an effort to attract a tenant!
    Supply and Demand -The greater the supply the greater your competition! Competition to attract renters and even eventually competition to try and attract a buyer. The greater the demand for your property the higher will be the rent you will be able to charge.
    Understanding the demand and supply metrics of both your chosen location and possible tenants can avert possible financial heartbreak.
    Proximity to Amenities (infrastructure and Jobs) -Location. Location. Location! Tenants want convenience. Tenants will pay a premium for convenience. Convenience to transportation, entertainment, jobs, lifestyle assets as well as beaches and parks. Shopping, hospitals and medical centres just to name a few. Under the 5 Essential Drivers of Property and you will understand how your proximity to amenities WILL manifest back into higher desirability and hence higher prices.
    Building and layout - The quality of your building can not be overstated. Construction quality, the finishes will have a major impact as to both the desirability as well as the cost of ongoing maintenance.
    And never underestimate the impact the layout of an apartment can have.
    Cost and cash flow- The financial consideration is the price of the apartment and its expected cash flow. Never overpay. Never pay tomorrow's price today for an apartment. Always review the strata costs and never neglect to review the strata minutes to ensure there is NO hidden issues potentially lurking in the future. Always have a professional review these numbers so as to ensure you don’t face any nasty shocks.
