Since Jess and I bought our first home down the South Coast of New South Wales in 2015, I have been an avid listener of Michael's podcast and follow a lot of his advice and commentary through his online content. One of the best things about Michael is how he cuts through the noise and dispels a lot of myths surrounding property affordability in Australia. Whether it be the goal of attaining property or in fact anything in life, Michael is a firm believer that your mindset is catalyst to achievement. Michael co-wrote 'Rich Habits, Poor Habits' with Tom Corley which analyses the psychology behind our decisions and why some of us make better decisions than others. A great read!
Jess and I made a short term sacrifice of getting out of Sydney and buying a cheaper property. This ensured we got into the property market, kept our mortgage and overheads low and also helped us still save a deposit for our second property which we hope to get in the near future. This isn't a blue print but one of many ways to purchase property and in fact I have many friends who have purchased a home in Sydney with 1 source of income with some short term sacrifices. It can be done!
In our chat, Michael talks about his path to success, purchasing his first property with a $2,000 deposit and how he has incrementally built his wealth over the past several decades. We talk about the market now, the fear mongering pushed by the media (don't get sucked in!) and how mindset is key to your individual meaning of success.
