    Another brand new week with another brand new SYF episode!

    This week's topic focuses on how to continue growing your portfolio once you have bought your own home which is something that @rld brought up. The process of extracting equity for investment from your PPOR is commonly known as debt recycle. So we go into details on debt recycling process which is a powerful way to continue growing your property portfolio:
    Ep32 - Reduce PPOR debt Or debt recycle

    @jazzsidana @David Shih

    My wish list is to see each investors portfolio holdings with following info
    • property type
    • location
    • purchase year
    • purchase price
    • current valuations
    • current rent
    • Used BA
    And discuss around
    • What was their rational to buy then, would they buy at current valuations(if not why not)
    • What is their rational to hold & Sell
    • What would be their advice to the listeners from their experience (both good and bad)
    • What do they think will increase the CG in future.
    • Any difficulties they face (finance/tenant and how did they get around that)
    • Do they use BA?
      why / why not / would they recommend them?
    • Do they use MB?
      why / why not / would they recommend them?
    • Do they use PM?
      why / why not / would they recommend them?
