    Hmmm.... perhaps good reading for the get rich quick brigade...

    Macro economics doesn't necessarily have a positive correlation with micro economics ie. Individual investments/investors. This because of many factors such as timing, specific market sector dynamics & the pace of ripple affects not necessarily being in step between the macro & micro level.

    A macro downturn can actually be a micro upswing if positioned into the right part of the sector.

    Enjoy the journey

    Indeed, it's rather challenging to read the correlation between macro and microeconomics and in turn applying this to property cycles.
    However, coming back to your query how to invest taking into account a property market cycle and seeking views of the participants of this chat you need to be more specific.
    First, you should define a micro cycle four your area of interest and it's current stage.
    Second, what kind of an investment activity you want to implement?
    Happy to share with you my idea but need details

    I didn't do this:

    Prices falling - Look elsewhere

    I did Prices falling - find a unique opportunity - take advantage of low prices :p

    What about Brisbane and surrounding? Stagnant markets?

    There are certainly markets in Brisbane that are not stagnant. Good money to be made. Just depends on the eyes that's looking.

    That's why for me, if I was looking to invest in a state/market I was not familiar with whatsoever, Personally I wouldn't waste my time trying to become an expert in that area, I would just enlist the help of a successful investor on here who is very familiar with that market and understands what it is I want to achieve and has done very similar with good results. Of course I will do my own DD but I will seek out the 'expert' first. Leveraging the right people is vital imo.

    AKA leverage. So many ways to "leverage" if you can let go of controling everything. Easier said than done initially but once unserstood opens up a whole raft of new opportunities.

    Agreed. For me, I don't mind to give up control or anything else, as long as I get the results I want. At the end of the day I have no pride, no arrogance, no ego. I only care about the end results. Always the results. That's it.

    You get these kinds of "Gurus" in most finance and business circles. After a while it becomes easier to distinguish the quality from the crap. As with anything, always do your research before you invest a significant amount of time, money or effort into someone or their products/promises.
