    EP12 is now UP!

    The number of property expenses is often an underestimated area and can always seem a bit daunting especially to first time investors who could easily get into analysis paralysis and stopped moving forward. So today we uncover the types of property expenses before as well as after settlement so you can get an understanding on the types of property expenses and can ballpark/prepare for them:

    Good Day All,

    In last few weeks, we made few changes to improve sound quality and few other tweaks. Most of the feedback that we have received lately has been very positive.

    For listeners who are regular to the show, keen to know your overall thoughts and any areas of improvement?

    We working on bringing lot more investor stories and other ppl experienced in finance/real estate space. If you know of someone who can add value, feel free to DM @David Shih or @jazzsidana ..

    Cheers,

    Hey all!

    Another exciting week with an exciting episode - how did @jazzsidana pick his winner property in Frankston 6 years ago and why Frankston and not somewhere else?

    In this week we're doing an IP DEEP DIVE into one of Jazz's Portfolio which he bought back in 2013. It has since rode the Melbourne wave and had about 70%+ growth over the 6 years! We pull apart the thinking process behind this purchase and what other aspects of this IP made this a successful acquisition - an episode that simply cannot be missed by new or astute investors!
    Ep19 - Why this investor bought in Frankston!

    Hey all!

    Another freezing week in Sydney so it's time to SPARK your fire again with our latest Episode 26!

    Property investors understand that as a general principle land appreciates and building depreciates. It is the land that increases in value long term, not the dwelling sitting on top. So does that mean investors should just purchase & hold as much land as they can?

    Which is why in this episode we discuss whether purchasing land is the best investment strategy for property investors and the pros/cons associated with this strategy:
    Ep26 - Is buying vacant block sound investment?
