Our hosts will also be sharing their “text-book” floor plan, understanding under quoting in a sales campaign and ways to decipher a more reliable price range using the auction clearance rates as a guideline. Listen to the podcast to find out more!

Episode 037 | Understanding the Scarcity factor in Property Investment

Scarcity. It is one of the three filters in our asset selection criteria and you’ve probably heard Bryce and Ben talking about it numerous times in previous podcasts. In this current market condition, it is more important than ever to ensure you nailed the scarcity factor right. But how do you determine if a property is scarce or not?

Ep 37 Podcast - Understanding the scarcity factor in property investmentIn this episode, our hosts will be breaking the scarcity factor into two parts and will be sharing their very own “Scarcity Scale”. As mentioned previously, location usually does the heavy-lifting on the performance of an asset so, Bryce and Ben will be starting with area/location (right side of the scale) and then move on to the property type.
