Why compromise is vital for property buyers

Why compromise is vital for property buyers It’s a truth universally acknowledged that compromise is part and parcel of the human experience. Whether it’s discussing who is going to do the dishes after dinner or recognising that your budget won’t allow you to buy a Ferrari, but you can afford to purchase a snazzy little Fiat – we all have to make compromises in our lives. Personally I’d go for neither, but that’s me 😉 And this is especially true for property buyers, whether you are purchasing your first home or your third investment property. This is because you can […]

Supply and demand

Supply and demand and its impact on property prices

The principle of supply and demand is a cornerstone of economic theory, dictating the behaviour of markets, including real estate. In essence, this principle theorises that the price of a good, including property, is determined by the balance between its availability (supply) and the desire of consumers to purchase it (demand). How supply and demand affect property prices Here are some different supply and demand ratios and their effects of property prices.

Where are all the properties?

Where are all the properties? Right now, Australia is facing a significant challenge – a notable decline in property stock levels. According to recent data, the number of homes available for purchase or rent has drastically decreased, intensifying the housing crisis.

Low property stock levels drive markets in Australia

Australia’s property market is facing a significant challenge: a notable decline in property stock levels. According to recent data, the number of homes available for purchase or rent has drastically decreased, intensifying the housing crisis.

Learning the language of property investment

The language of property investment

Becoming proficient in property investment is like learning a foreign language, but you can master it, says Kate Hill. In this podcast Bushy Martin digs into Kate’s personal journey. Like marathon runners and migrants from other countries, the traits that separate those that achieve sustainable success in property are those that demonstrate the qualities of curiosity, embracing change and continuous learning, embracing mistakes as learning opportunities not failures, and demonstrating the patience, persistence and resilience to overcome obstacles and last the distance through dogged determination and daily discipline.  If you’ve enjoyed this video then you might like to subscribe to

How can you tell if your property manager is professional?

If there is one thing that is likely to stuff up a property investor’s ability to hold the property over the long-term it is poor property management. Because, like most industries, there are good and bad property managers out there, so the key is being to recognise one from the other. The best property managers generally are the ones who consider their job a career rather than a stop-gap job, or a stepping-stone to someday working in sales. And, they’re likely to be working for agencies who  recognise that professional property management is the backbone of their businesses, rather than

Caring for children number one barrier to work for women

New yearly statistics have found that nearly two-thirds of women looking after their children would prefer to be working in some capacity but are unable to do so.

Women work 56 days extra yearly to earn same as men

The 25th of August this year is a date that is becoming increasingly important on the calendars on anyone who believes in financial equality.

How to build a diversified property investment portfolio in different cities and asset classes

It is often used to describe a company, economy, or investment fund that invests in many different industries or activities in order to reduce risk and increase opportunities for growth and stability. A diversified musical program, for example, might range from classical to modern, while diversified farming might involve growing a variety of different crops.
