July in review: Our top 10 trending articles for this month

Are you keen to keep up to date with the continual changing world of property investment, success, personal finance and wealth creationhouse-computer-search strategies?

Well…here’s a list of our 10 most read blogs over the last month, in case you missed them.

Did you know that more than 115,000 people subscribe to our Property Update blog?

Some subscribe to the daily commentary while others get the weekly summary.

And that over the course of the month, we’ve published hundreds of articles, but of course, some are always more popular than others.

So as another month comes to an end, we thought it would be a good idea to share the top 10 blogs our readers enjoyed so you can take another look at the stories that meant the most to our subscribers.

1. 9 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T BUY AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY

Are you looking to get into property investment, or maybe you’re keen to add to your existing property portfolio?

Well maybe you should.

But maybe you shouldn’t.

Fact is, I’ve spoken with hundreds of investors in my time and I’m often surprised when they tell me their reasons for investing in real estate.

Many just get it wrong.

You see…while property investment is an excellent vehicle for growing lasting wealth, occasionally it’s the wrong fit for particular people.

In fact, sometimes, there are some very legitimate reasons why you just shouldn’t do it.

2. THE LATEST CENSUS DATA HAS CHANGED MY POSITION ON REAL ESTATE [VIDEO]

As our population continues to grow, so too does our need for more housing.

But not just any housing and not just anywhere will make a good investment property in the future

You’ve often heard me say that demographics drives our property markets.

The latest census data has changed my position on real estate, and we discuss this in the short video

3. STATE BY STATE HOUSING MARKET & ECONOMIC UPDATE | CHART PACK JULY 2017

Now that we’re half way through the year it’s a good time to check on how our property markets are performing.

We started the year with a tug of war… On the one hand home buyers and investors were clamouring to buy real estate.

On the other hand, APRA and the RBA were trying to hose down the booming Sydney and Melbourne property markets.

They pulled the welcome mat out from under the feet of foreign investors as well as making it more difficult for local investors through stricter lending criteria.

4. THE MELBOURNE PROPERTY MARKET – 29 INVESTOR TIPS

The Melbourne property market has been one of the strongest and most consistent performers over the last few years.

In fact, after the booming Sydney real estate market, Melbourne has been the best performing capital city market over the last few years.

5. WHAT WILL BRISBANE LOOK LIKE IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW?

A recent column, Bernard Salt has stated the Brisbane will play catch up over the next decade in its quest to become a major metropolis like Sydney and Melbourne.

In another article, I explained why the last 10 years for Brisbane has been nothing short of disappointing in terms of growth, in particular capital growth.

I finished my article by saying that although it has been a disappointing decade, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

After reading Salt’s article and then researching and analysing what is on the “To Do” list here in Brisbane for the next 5 – 10 years, I am growing more optimistic.

6. 4 KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THE CENSUS FOR PROPERTY INVESTORS

As our population continues to grow, so too does our need for more housing.

But not just any housing and not just anywhere will make a good investment property in the future

You’ve often heard me say that demographics drives our property markets.

In other words, how many of us there are, how we live where we want to live and what we can afford to live in will make a bigger difference to our property markets over the next decade than the short-term ups and downs of interest rates or the vagaries of government policies.

7. DO WE REALLY WANT HOUSES TO BE MORE AFFORDABLE?

Housing in Australia is unaffordable – everyone knows that.

Or at least that’s what you’d be led to believe with all the talk in the media, measures introduced Federal Government in the recent budget and the First Home Owner incentives being introduced by a number of State Governments.

But let me ask you a different question:

Do we really want houses to be more affordable?

8. 7 REASONS WHY SO MANY INVESTORS NEVER GET PAST THEIR FIRST PROPERTY

Do you know how many people own more than one investment property in Australia?

Trust me – the answer will surprise you!

You see, while there are about two million investors in Australia, about 75 per cent of them own just one investment property.

Only about 18 per cent own two, which rapidly drops down to about five per cent of investors who own three properties.

But what do these statistics really mean?

9. THE 18 YEAR REAL ESTATE CLOCK MYTH

There’s been a lot of chat lately about the eighteen-year real estate clock.

So much so, that it appears to be turning into an accepted truth about housing market performance.

But is there really an eighteen-year clock?

The promoters of the eighteen-year cycle claim that Western economies exhibit an 18-year real estate cycle which averages out as 14 years up and 4 years down.

This is eagerly accepted by Australian property investors because if the cycle exists, it means that housing markets won’t crash until fourteen years or more so have passed since the last crash during the Global Financial Crisis.

10. STRATEGIES MILLIONAIRES USE TO AVOID MAKING COSTLY MISTAKES

When you do things wrong, too often, those mistakes can offset all of the good you’ve done.

Mistakes set you back.

If you make too many mistakes it can lead to failure.

One of the keys to success, therefore, is to minimize mistakes.

Making fewer mistakes allows you to keep moving forward in life.
