    EPISODE 225 - Buying SDA ... when rushed in, or taken way too slow!

    EPISODE 225 - Buying SDA ... when rushed in, or taken way too slow!

    In this episode, Matt and Minh sit down to talk about one of Matt's recent prospective clients who was in such a rush to buying an SDA, madly trying to buy something before the end of financial year (btw we only in Feb, at time of recording) that he didnt even want to worry about doing his Due Diligence, and was only driven by yield. Friendly reminder everyone ... "TAKE YOUR TIME!"

    While its great to jump into SDA with passion and eagerness, its also wise to take things one step at a time, and to do ones research. We have too often seen (time and time again) many silly mistakes taken by investors, by rushing in head first, and not taking into considerations the potential financial mess they will cause themselves. In contrast, Matt also speaks about the opposite extreme, of going very very slowly and being unable to make a decision, and how this also affects the buyer experience due to lack of confidence, or some other issue. This podcast is only about going at a steady pace in order to acquire the investment you are seeking, as you only get one chance to make it right. Once you execute, there is no going back, and you better hope that the decision you made was appropriate at the time.

    EPISODE 224 - From SDA outsider, to SDA insider, to joining us.

    EPISODE 224 - From SDA outsider, to SDA insider, to joining us.

    This episode has Heather sitting down with Ian (our new SDA consultant) to welcome him to our poddy, and to hear more about his journey to Australia, then to the SDA space, and then to us as a new organisation to be a part of. Having worked in the SDA space the past few 2 years, he came across our podcast channel (as a competitor organisation) and was thrilled with the content that we offered, as this was a way for Ian to also increase his NDIS and SDA knowledge, and apply it in his role with the company he worked for. Unbeknown to him, through fate and luck, he somehow got referred to NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA to join, and thus we have him as a part of our consultancy team, to help investors get a better grip on the complex nature that is SDA.

    Heather & Ian talk alot about the company culture and what binds us together as a cohesive unit. Ian gives his impression of our SDA company, now that he is within our walls, and talks about how NPA is different in the market place. He also validates the impact of this podcast show, and the SDA data reports that we work so tirelessly to perfect and provide to investors. These reports, both SDA data, and financial modelling, are key to our very success thus far within the SDA space, as we continue to evolve and become better in this craftsmanship that is SDA technical advice.

    As always, its a pleasure for our new staff to share their thoughts behind what the industry means to them and those around them, and to also give insight about their learnings in this working space.  We try to show our listeners the calibre of team work behind our brand, and its a breath of fresh air for us to see 3 recent new team members approach us (one of which was Ian), wanting to join NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA, to lend their support and energies to working with more investors who are wanting to be guided by well trained and educated experts in this space. As we grow our team, we will always introduce them to this podcast show to allow them to contribute to the good things we do in this space.

    EPISODE 222 - Changes to SDA Data: NDIA Quarterly Report (Feb 2024)

    EPISODE 222 - Changes to SDA Data: NDIA Quarterly Report (Feb 2024)

    In this most recent update to the data, current as at ending Dec 2023 and released mid-Feb 2024, we saw a significant change to some of the information reported on by the NDIA. That change was in the reporting of the numbers of SDA-funded participants. Whilst we lost one level of reporting, the update seems to be a significant improvement overall in demand data.

    Each quarter, the NDIA release their updated SDA Enrolled Dwellings and NDIS demand data spreadsheet which is the comprehensive SDA supply and demand information the industry refers to for information on the numbers and locations of SDA dwellings, both enrolled and in the pipeline as well as on SDA funded participants.
     
    As recommended in both the June 2023 SDA Price Review, and the December NDIS review, enhanced and more transparent data is slowly being rolled out as the NDIA's internal processes are streamlined and improved upon.

    Lenore and Debbie discuss what these changes are, why they were made and the impact on the information this report now provides. The quarterly data reports can be downloaded under SDA Enrolled dwellings and NDIS demand data section on:

    In this episode, Larissa comes to Brisbane and interviews Minh and Debbie to chat about the milestone of achieving 50,000 podcast episode downloads, from over 220 episodes, which were published over the last 26 months, by consistently recording 2 shows per week (without failure).

    They discuss the fun that the crew have had in putting this all together, and the passion in podcasting, while also talking about the most downloaded episodes, aswell as their favourite episodes and other milestones along the way.

A massive big thanks to you our listeners for coming along with us on this SDA journey, which continues to evolve.

We thank you wholeheartedly for all the support - thanking you always!!!
