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!

Quick Hits #3 - Kickstarting the BOOM
This is the moment many Property Investors have been waiting for; as now, we can get really excited about investing in property and the opportunities in front of us!
Because last week Josh Frydenberg announced the rescinding of the Banks “Responsible Lending Obligations” opening the flood gates for credit to flood our economy for the second half of the cycle, driving asset prices ever higher.
Understanding the Credit Cycle is super important as its credit that provides the atomic energy for a nuclear-like Boom that ends in the inevitable Bust.
Jeremy outlines the events leading up to this announcement and how it’s implications will play out. For more information about the Credit and Investment cycle please see:

Jordan Hill - The Charity of Land
This is Jordy Hill's story, the story of OneHeart, a charitable organisation in Kenya and Uganda that uses LAND as the foundation piece to provide help and support to underprivileged children while engaging with the local community to re-educate and provide opportunities through their commercial enterprises.
OneHeart is all about the creation of continuous sustainable social and community improvement by improving and educating the community.
And it’s all underpinned by their ownership of LAND.
Land underpins their ability to run their orphanages and schools. It enables them to not only run their Skills Training Centre but further, it’s the owning and controlling of land that has enabled OneHeart to create community opportunities and commercial activities for the benefit of locals, the community, the orphans and ensure the sustainability funding of their support model
On their land they build orphanages and schools that educate the children under their care as well as local fee paying students.
On their land they have created a Skills Training Centre that provides free and low cost education in health, finance, life skills as well as new farming techniques to parents in the surrounding villages. This helps better equip them to earn an income and to provide and care for their children.
They operate farms, bakeries and other commercial activities all aimed at providing education, employment and opportunities to the local community while stimulating the local economy.
LAND is core to the charity OneHeart, in fact Jordy goes as far as to say that without the ownership of land OneHeart could NOT deliver the services they do.
It’s a unique charitable approach and a fascinating story that I do encourage you all to consider supporting.

Quick Hits #2 - Why Property?
This Quick Hits episode sees Jeremy tackles the question "Why Property" and there are some very compelling reasons as to Why Property!
We all l have an innate emotional connection to property. We touch and feel it every day as we live our lives surrounded and immersed in property.
We feel confident about property and at the end of the day, we lay our heads to rest, as a tenant, homeowner, or landlord.
But there is more than the emotional connection to property that answers the question Why Property?
Property is a uniquely attractive investment because:
It's less volatile than other growth assets
Banks love to lend money against property
You get paid to own it
The government WANTS you to own it
Increased human productivity ensures it will increase in value
The drivers of property prices can be defined.
