Thanks to all our listeners questions about Property Investment in Australia! They are great point of views and we are glad that the podcast is inspiring you in different ways. So for today’s episode, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley will be addressing questions from:
- Dan and Ryan : Should we buy an investment property in a high growth location and keep renting, or move a bit further out and get something we can afford?
- Leah : Do you think the tax rules around negative gearing will change in the future, so as not to benefit those investing in multiple properties and how do you diversify your portfolio?
- Mark : How do you identify high disposable income suburbs and if you’re buying in a block of units, how do you work out if there are more owner occupiers than renters in the building and area? Also, what do you think about dual living homes ie: granny flats?
We are hoping to answer all of our listeners questions in time.

The BIG moment for me around property is low volatility.
~ Ben Kingsley ~
It comes as no surprise that Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley are huge advocates to investing in property. As property investment advisors and buyers agents, they’ve come across many different platforms of investment and have chosen property as their preferred vehicle. But, why invest in property? This is the main topic that Bryce and Ben will be discussing today particularly in terms of investing in residential property. They won’t be debating whether property or shares is a better option because both type of investments can be used depending on the investor’s circumstances and preferences ie: cash flow position, tolerance to risk, years to retirement and more. Instead, they will be sharing their own personal property investment stories, why they themselves, chose it and what kind of research do they conduct when investing in property.
In this podcast, Bryce and Ben also mentioned that not all investment properties generate profit and based on this report by CoreLogic (Pain and Gain), one of the thing we notice is properties held for a short period are much more susceptible to loss.

The definition of a (property) spruiker, in our view, is a salesperson who is pretending to be an adviser.
~ Bryce Holdaway ~
Property Spruikers’ activity in this industry is not a new topic. It has been going on for a while and ASIC is trying its best to find and penalise these parties. However, despite being a well known issue, there aren’t much else being done about it and at the end of the day, innocent investors are the ones getting hurt. Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley have seen many cases like this in their day-to-day role and unfortunately, they’ve a lot of experience in fixing bad property investment advice. It is an issue that they are very passionate about and it highlights the importance and the crucial needs for more regulation and education in this industry. Hence they are keen to share with our listeners on how you define a spruiker, what’s their classic tactic is when trying to win an investor over and how can you distinguish them.
