Money Magazine – August 2014

This month is a cracker! The cover story is all about Renovation and better yet it deals with Flipping as a renovation strategy. Now that is when you buy a property, renovate and sell quickly, usually within 12 months. I share one of my renovation stories on how I added $140,000 in value with a 10 day $14,000 renovation. I also share in detail the mortgage/lending restrictions you need to be aware of and finally share how to locate the right area to pull off this strategy.

Australian Property Investor Magazine – July 2014

In my opinion a successful property investor understands that they need capital growth AND rental yield to build and be able to exit a property portfolio. This month API looks at 90 suburbs with over 6%pa rental yield. If you take into account that you can now lock in interest rates at 5.29%pa for 5 years then you are looking at a property that doesn’t cost you a lot. However remember the long term game there is no point in having a property that makes you $10pw if it is not going up in value.

In ‘Ask the Expert’ this month I share my thoughts on buying houses or apartments and what I consider. Also check out the ‘Weird and Wacky Property Laws’. I added a few that I’ve come across in my years investing. I am sure some of these will shock you.
