    Beware of the banks Golden Handcuffs + Who needs to be impressed

    Beware of the banks Golden Handcuffs + Who needs to be impressed

    When auction clearance rates consistently remain near 80% it means there are more buyers than sellers in the market and this eventually leads to higher property prices, and that’s clearly what’s happening.  With in excess of 2,000 properties being auctioned every week and given the strong ongoing interest in auctions, it's worth revisiting key aspects of auctions for buyers.
    Bushy Martin does that today with buyer’s agent and builder broker, Rob Newman of Blackfords Urban Habitats.  Did you know that over 60% of all new home loans in Australia are now facilitated by mortgage brokers?  The growth is so strong that ASIC has moved to put in place a process called Best Interests Duty as a guide for brokers and protection for consumers.  So, what if anything has changed since it came into force on January 1 this year?  You will find out today.  And on that subject – financing, brokers, and banks – in Bushy’s last word he talks about a worrying trend that has emerged where the banks are contacting borrowers introduced by a broker and offering enticing locked-in 4-to-5-year fixed-rate loans.  Bushy calls them golden handcuffs and for good reason.  He will explain. 
    But first up today, we are delighted to welcome back to the show Bryce Holdaway.  Bryce is well known for his TV appearances in Location, Location, Location Australia, Escape to the Country and Relocation, Relocation Australia as well as co-host of The Property Couch with Ben Kingsley.  Bryce has some thoughts about who on your panel of property experts you should be most concerned about impressing.

    No signs of a slowdown + Fragile Melbourne

    No signs of a slowdown + Fragile Melbourne

    This week Bushy’s guests include Stuart Weymms, Eliza Owen and Simon Pressley and Bushy’s Last Word or as he refers to it his Bush Bite – he questions if converting from long term to short term rental investment is short sighted.  We would love to get your feedback on that as well.  You can do that in the comments section under todays show.  
    Well just when you thought the threat of changes to negative gearing were over when Labor lost the last Federal election it is under pressure again.  With 60% of Australia’s 2.2 million property investors being negatively geared, I would have thought that the ALP might have learnt a lesson.  But that is politics, I guess.  More on that today in the show.  Simon Pressley makes a return, and he brings some of those enlightening graphics with him.
    This time it is demonstrate that despite growth of 5 and a half percent in property prices in the last 3 months, Melbourne’s fundamentals are still quite fragile.   But first up today, CoreLogic’s Eliza Owen tells Bushy that Australia’s housing boom is rolling on with national home values lifting another 2.2% in May.  The improvement was almost universal being recorded in 97% of subregions across the nation.  Eliza lists the reasons driving the continued improvement and if it is likely to continue.

    Risks of buying new + Finance delay blues

    Risks of buying new + Finance delay blues

    Bushy is from Know How Property Finance and the host of his very popular podcast “Get Invested’.  His guest this week are Bryce Holdaway, Rob Newman and Jason Back.  First up Bushy talks to TV Property Show host and property buyers advocate Bryce Holdaway about a popular money myth about paying rent. 
    Given the massive stimulus incentives being offered by Federal and State governments to build new homes, there has been a big increase in the number of first home buyers looking to go down this road. 
    It is best to know the risks before making that decision ad you will hear them today from Rob Newman, a Buyers Agent, and Builder Broker.  Delays in arranging approved finance for the purchase of a property can now run out to 8 to 12 weeks resulting in many property sales falling over with everyone involved suffering high anxiety, stress, and frustration.   It does not have to be that way according to mortgage broking industry veteran Jason Back.  He talks to us about that. 
    Finally to wrap up this week's show Bushy’s Last Word is about how so many borrowers focus on rate when borrowing.  He says there are more important aspects of the loan you should be considering.

    Regions outstrip capitals + COVID impact overstated + Avoid ‘diwersefication’

    Regions outstrip capitals + COVID impact overstated + Avoid ‘diwersefication’

    The annual growth rate of combined regional dwelling values at … 13%, was more than twice that of the capital cities in the 12 months to April according to CoreLogic. 
    Remarkably, rent values across the combined regional markets have outpaced capital city rents even more. Bushy Martin catches up with CoreLogic’s Eliza Owen to dig a bit deeper into the findings.    
    When the COVID pandemic struck and the country was locked down in March last year, everyone was predicting gloom, doom, and the potential collapse of property markets. Everyone that is except Simon Pressley.  He tells Bushy today why he was so bullish.   
    It’s a generally accepted investment principle that diversification can reduce your risk and improve your investment returns.  But are there times when property investors shouldn’t diversify?  Stuart Weymms tells Bushy it could be called ‘diwersefication’.  That’s a new word and Stuart explains what it means.   
    But first up – Bushy talks to Eliza Owen about some amazing findings emerging from CoreLogic’s Quarterly Regional Property Report.

    When it is not wise to ‘move in’ + Is the party about to end

    When it is not wise to ‘move in’ + Is the party about to end

    If you decide to move into an investment property and it becomes your primary place of residence, you’ll need to declare this for tax purposes.  There are certain scenarios where an investor can end up living in an investment property, but it is important to be wary of the rules and regulations before doing so.   That is what Bushy discusses with Brad Beer from BMT.  
      The Australian housing market is booming with predictions that prices will rise by as much as 20% in total across this year and next. but one of Australia’s leading economists Dr. Shane Oliver, Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist AMP Capital
    believes the bull market may be getting close to the end, and when someone like Shane says that we listen.  Bushy talks to him about that. 
    According to the most recent Australian Taxation Office statistics, just 8.8% of Australians have an investment property.  That is just over 2 million investors ….. impressive. But dig deeper and we discover that the number of people who have scaled their portfolio is a small minority within a small minority.  The numbers Bushy discusses with Arjun Paliwal are very revealing.  And we round the show out with a piece of wisdom from Bushy that deals with allowable claims.  What costs can you recover from the taxman.

    When will the RBA say “enough” + New builds are not for the faint hearted

    When will the RBA say “enough” + New builds are not for the faint hearted

    Given the massive post covid new build housing stimulus via the Home Builder scheme and a raft of other programs including First Home Buyer grants, house, and land packages can seem very appealing to first home buyers.   But it is not for the faint-hearted.  Bushy kicks the show off this week by asking Julia Newbould from Money Magazine to share some of the tips and traps of homebuilding. 
    Staying on that subject, there’s been a substantial shift in demand for more affordable new build housing on the outskirts of our cities as a flow-on from the number of new build grants and incentives.   But many traditional suburban housing estates lack the intimate neighborhood experience that makes our inner cities so attractive.  Mike Day, a partner at award-winning national urban planning and design consultancy Hatch Roberts Day 5 key factors that can help transform these new areas by urbanizing the burbs.
    Despite a pick-up in new listings and a bottoming in fixed mortgage rates, home price gains remain very strong, with rising sales activity matching the increase in new listings. Housing finance commitments are at record highs.  So the question on everyone’s lips is, how long will the RBA allow this to continue and will they intervene?  Dr. Shane Oliver, Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist with AMP Capital answers that today. But first up, Bushy catches up with Julia Newbold with some sound advice for first-time buyers with a passion for everything new.
