STATE BY STATE HOUSING MARKET & ECONOMIC UPDATE | CHART PACK NOVEMBER 2017

What are our property markets up to?

That’s probably the most common question I’m asked at the moment.

While most property investors started 2017 with confidence, many are now uncertain, and those who ask me “what’s going on” are often frustrated by my answer because there is not one market.

There are multiple markets, each at their own stage of the property cycle, but overall since moving through a peak rate of growth in November 2016, capital gains across Australia’s housing market have been losing momentum, with national dwelling values unchanged over the month of October.

The Sydney property boom is over.

Well there  – I said it!

But what should an investor do?

And one group of forecasts – those by BIS Shrapnel on behalf of QBE have been getting a lot of press lately, so I thought I’d share them with you and give you my thoughts.

PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT GUIDE PART 5 – FINANCING YOUR PROJECT

Before you commence any development project, it is obviously crucial to first establish how much you can borrow and how you will be able to manage all associated costs of the development.

As a property developer you will have to understand finance and what the banks look for when lending for development projects.

Lenders look after their own safety first so when deciding whether to finance your project they will assess the risk, firstly with regard to you as an individual and your ability to repay the loan, and then on the viability of the development itself.

16 THINGS I WISH I KNEW WHEN I STARTED INVESTING – PART ONE

I’m often asked what I would do differently if I could live my investing journey all over again.

I’ve certainly made my fair share of mistakes along the way and paid huge “learning fees” because of them.

However, instead of being defeated, I learned from each error and moved forward a little bit wiser.

If you ask me that’s one of the keys to investment success – the ability to pick yourself up from setbacks, learn what you can from them (including your own limitations) and simply try again.

MAKING AN OFFER ON A PROPERTY – WHAT PRICE SHOULD YOU OFFER?

We all want to buy our new home or investment property at the lowest price possible, or at least get good value for our money.

And of course the vendor wants the most he can get for his property.

Yet you now know that the asking price quoted by the selling agent will usually be more than the owner is willing to take for their home.
