Some of our favorite quotes from the show:

“I guess there's a lesson behind that, you've got to be very careful in selection of locations. You can't talk about the Sydney property market or the Canberra property market, can you?” – Michael Yardney

“I'm not really thrilled that the government's giving them(BTR developers) financial support to do that, because somebody's got to be paying for that and it's people like you and me who are property investors but they're not giving us the same financial support.” – Michael Yardney

“Double-digit growth at the beginning of a property cycle is unsustainable and it would create a much shorter cycle. So I'm much happier that price growth is moderating.” – Michael Yardney
