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

Why Melbourne makes more sense than Perth

Why Melbourne makes more sense than Perth

Most property investors are herd animals, diving into markets when they read that prices have risen 15% or 20% in the past year – or 50% in the past three years. Buying in such a market means you are likely buying at – or after – the peak of the market. The smart money would have been there 2-3 years ago – and is now focused on places that are early in the growth cycle. That’s why Melbourne makes more sense than Perth for property investors seeking to buy strategically for capital growth. The Melbourne market, in simple terms, is

Is a local or national buyers agent best?

Is a local or national buyers agent best?

More and more investors are purchasing interstate every year as they recognise the potential of buying in locations that are primed for future capital growth. But is it best to use a buyers’ agent who is local to a specific area, or one who has a national focus? And, how does an everyday investor know which areas are showing the most potential anyway? Of course, the answer to that question in particular is that most don’t. Rather, they may have read media stories about a city or region being the latest hotspot, then simply decide that they should invest there,

Why the promise of infrastructure is not enough

Over the next five years, there are nearly $240 billion worth of major public infrastructure projects under way around the country. Now, these projects will be at varying levels of completion at any given point in time, but they are ones that are actually happening. Alas, the same can’t be said for a plethora of other projects, which looked like they were a sure thing but may be unlikely to see the light of day anytime soon.Infrastructure spending When the Federal Government wanted to slash spending last year, it pulled out its red pen and instantly killed off a large
