September in review : Our top 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.

WHAT DO BANKS LOOK FOR ON YOUR LOAN APPLICATION THESE DAYS?

The last decade has flipped the world of lending on its head.

Despite, currently having the lowest official interest rates on record, it’s harder for many investors to get a loan than ever.

In days gone by, banks lined up to give you money; now they’re so tightly bound by APRA’s (the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority) regulations that their initial stance is closer to “no” until you prove yourself worthy of a “yes”.

To make a tough situation even more difficult, lenders are behaving incredibly erratically, seemingly changing lending policies from week to week.

When it comes to finance, change seems to be the only certainty.

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

Boy how things have changed in our property markets during the year.

After a heady start to the year, the latest Corelogic figures show property values are levelling out.

WHY IS MICHAEL YARDNEY STILL WORKING?

Today I’m going to do something a little bit different; I’m going to give you some insights into what makes me tick.

Maybe you’ll learn something useful from it, maybe you won’t.

You see…

Recently a prospective client asked me:

“Michael now that your candles cost more than your birthday cake why are you still working?”

I know others have wondered:

“Is this guy really financially independent? Does he really have a substantial property portfolio?
And if so why is he sitting here across the table from me wanting to show me how I can become financially independent?”

PODCAST EPISODE 4: ARE YOU READY FOR AN INTEREST RATE RISE OR FOUR?…

In today’s podcast I discuss a very important topic for property investors – the future of interest rates.

Could you cope with that?

In my mindset minute, I discuss why you should be doing the opposite of everyone else.

Then I share with you seven questions you should ask before locking in interest rates.

PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT GUIDE PART 5 – FINANCING YOUR PROJECT

In the fifth instalment of his series on property development  Bryce Yardney, Property Strategist at Metropole Property Strategists, explains in detail how to secure funding for your real estate development 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.

ARE ALL REAL ESTATE AGENTS RICH AND OVERPAID?

There is a debate in the world about the usefulness, and alleged obscene amounts of money earned by some professions.

We are aware of the fact that real estate agents are not the most trus­ted pro­fes­sions in Australia.

The Australian Reader’s Digest produces an annual list of most trusted professions.

Here is where Real Estate Agents ranked in 2011:

38. Celebrit­ies
39. Sex work­ers
40. Journ­al­ists
41. Taxi drivers
42. Real estate agents
43. Car sales­men
44. Politi­cians
45. Tele-marketers

I can see why the public has ranked us this way and I’m going to make it my mis­sion in this art­icle to expose the truth and show how rich we really are!

I have been teaching how I have grown my own very substantial property portfolio became wealthy through property and how many of my students and our clients at Metropole have used real estate to develop financial independence.

NO-NONSENSE FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM A SEASONED FINANCIAL ADVISOR

My best friend, Bill King, is 11 years older than me.

Like me, he’s a CPA and a CFP.

When I was just starting out in my career, Bill gave me the best financial advice I ever heard.

Bill and I were discussing what it takes for the average individual to become financially free.

Bill said that most people live paycheck to paycheck.

Bill continued.

“The worst part about living paycheck to paycheck was that at the end of your working life, you literally have nothing to show for all of your hard work, except a small amount of equity in your home and your Social Security benefits. As a result, most are forced to sell their home and survive on Social Security benefits, when they can no longer work.”

I asked Bill why that was so.

Bill said people have a tendency to spend exactly what they make.
