Following from Part 1 of Episode 30 (Five Golden Rules of Property Investment), our hosts continue on to talk about a topic that Peter Koulizos is current researching on: Suburb Gentrification. Previously in episode 26, Bryce and Ben had briefly touched on this topic and in this episode, they elaborate it further.
Gentrification in general means wealthier people moving into an area and in Australia, the gentrification process varies across different states. Most people are able to see once the process nears the completion stage or sometimes, when it has gentrified but Bryce, Ben and Peter discuss about the signs that you can look for which indicate the start of this process.

The first golden rule from this trio, is never compromise on location. We’ve emphasized this a lot of times and have also previously mentioned about it on the Buyers Decision Quadrant episode. But time and time again, we see investors making the same old mistake and their argument usually evolves around the land size, affordability and depreciation benefits.

We’ve all made mistakes in life. Some are relatively harmless but when it comes to high value transactions such as investing in property, the stakes are higher. So this time on The Property Couch podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley list out a few common mistakes that they’ve seen people make in their investment journey.
The first mistake is underestimating the importance of having a good lending strategy and structure. One investment property will not be sufficient to provide you with a self funded retirement so in time, you will need to buy another one and if you messed up your lending structure from the start, you might not be able to achieve your full potential in your portfolio. One of the common regret that Bryce and Ben have heard before is the investor’s drive to look for lenders that offer them the least interest payable has clouded their decision for better borrowing power and eventually, a better asset.
Listen to this podcast to find out the other four mistakes that a property investor often make.
