What drives this unexpected surge in property value, and more importantly, is this a trend that savvy investors should be paying attention to? My Podcast 560 Stuart Wemyss 02

Should you be looking for these suburbs, or should you stick to blue-chip locations?

Some of our favorite quotes from the show:

“But that 1% or 2% growth doesn't sound like much until you compound it year after year after year, and boy does it make a difference over the 20 - 30-year period.” – Michael Yardney

“We're just not building enough infrastructure. It delays long behind population growth and just general growth of the area, and the governments are more likely to be putting the new infrastructure closer into the CBDs and closer to established areas.”– Michael Yardney

“Learning to manage our urges helps us in various areas of our life, be it sticking to a diet, maintaining a budget, or focusing on long-term asset growth through property investment.” – Michael Yardney
