In this fifth episode, Bryce and Ben disclose the third part of our Four Pillars of Mastery series: Asset Selection. In previous episodes we talked about Cash Flow Management and Borrowing Power but Asset Selection is usually what most people are interested in. Well, let’s face it. Inspecting a property can sometimes be much more appealing than looking through the numbers. Having said that, it is in no way easier and in fact, because it creates such an emotional aspect to it a lot people make the most mistake in this section. Imagine going through a property and it has all the shiny taps and the stainless steels (or rather “The Bling!” as Ben put it), it can be quite tempting to just sign on the dotted lines and claim it your own. Bryce and Ben explains why you shouldn’t be affected by these things as a property investor and instead, to look at the other areas that are much more important.
What are the other aspects of Asset Selection that you should focus at?

Episode 004 of The Property Couch is a continuation of our Four Pillars of Mastery series. Last episode we talked about Cash Flow Management and how it is the first step to your property investment journey. Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley also shared a Flow of Money diagram to illustrate their points. In this episode, they talked about the Borrowing Power. Once you know how much surplus you have at the end of each month then the next step it to know how high is your borrowing power so you can go ahead and buy an investment property. But it’s not as easy as going into a bank or a mortgage broker and get a loan set up. It’s never easy, isn’t it?
If you are serious about building wealth via property investment, then you need to make sure you plan ahead in terms of choosing the right package and structuring your loan correctly.

Leverage can be the independent umpire to any argument that anyone has as to what’s the best asset class.

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the four areas that each property investor needs to master. Property Investment is not just a transaction. There is a science behind it and in this episode, Bryce and Ben disclose the Property Investment Formula and how an investor can use it. They started off with the most complicated area: Cash Flow Management. Why is it the most complicated? That’s because cash flow management requires a lot of planning, observation and discipline from the investors themselves. In other parts of the Four Pillars of Mastery, you can get help from professionals but in this area, you need to be able to do it yourself because the advisor can only give you an indication not your actual number. Cash flow management demands a lot of time and effort but it is the first step to building your property portfolio and very likely the most important step. Listen to this podcast to find out more.

In this Episode of The Property Couch, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley talk about the limited recourse borrowing arrangements (LRBAs) on Self-managed super funds (SMSFs). While it is good to have a set of regulation on this, what is more important is perhaps to increase awareness on how people can invest in property using their SMSFs. Investors often get confused on what constitutes an asset grade investment property and there are a lot of bad property investment advice out there. As this is a high value transaction, making a wrong decision can mean an irreversible damage on a household’s financial position. So, it’s down to regulation vs education and finding a balance between the both of them is absolutely crucial in the property investment industry.
