THE 4 BIGGEST LIES ABOUT PROPERTY INVESTING: ARE YOU BEING FOOLED?

The lion’s share of your property’s value is in the land, therefore you should always buy houses rather than apartments.

Have you heard that one before?

It’s an oldie but a goodie, and harks back to those days when everyone believed a house on a quarter-acre block would always be the most sought after property.

Generally speaking, houses are more valuable than apartments — at least if you’re looking in the same location.

But that doesn’t mean houses are always the best investment, or that apartments are not capable of delivering substantial profits.

5 TOP TIPS TO NEGOTIATE YOUR WAY INTO A PRE-AUCTION PURCHASE

When a purchaser gets involved in negotiating for a property they’ve fallen in love with, emotions can rule logic.

MY TOP INSIGHTS INTO ACCELERATED WEALTH CREATION

Today I wanted to share my top wealth creating insights from our premier property training event – our 5 day Wealth Retreat.

You see…

As I start preparing the curriculum for this year’s event that will be held on the Gold Coast in June this year, I’ve been reviewing my notes from last year and spending a lot of time chatting with past attendees of Wealth Retreat.

As I spoke to many of them I was blown away and humbled by the feedback as they explained how Wealth Retreat had changed the way they handle their investments, business and in fact many aspects of their life and how it was the best event they had ever attended.

THE HOTSPOTS OF 2014 : WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

It happens around the country every year.

The property experts release their Top 100 hotspots throughout Australia detailing where the best buys for capital growth are likely to be.

And every year property investors jump on the bandwagon hoping to secure the right house / unit in the right location for the right price, all with an expectation of great things to come.

These popular lists are considered the property bible by many who take their word as gospel and hope their financial prayers will be answered.

They say hindsight is a wonderful thing especially if it can teach us a few lessons, so RiskWise Property Research has taken a retrospective look at the 2014 Top 100 Hotspots — and where they are now.

Myth-or-Reality

HARRY DENT IS BACK AGAIN, SCARING THE PANTS OFF ORDINARY AUSTRALIANS

There are always bubblers and doomsayers around predicting the bursting of Australia’s property bubble.

But recently US demographer Harry Dent has been wandering around the country telling anyone who’ll listen to him that we’re on the verge of an economic winter and when it comes, the fallout could be worse than even the Great Depression of 1929.

I had a chance to interview Dent, one of the world’s most controversial economists, on my Michael Yardney Podcast and hear him predict that the stock market could possibly crash 80% just weeks or months from now, and that our property markets will eventually crash with Sydney real estate house prices likely to drop by as much as 40%.
