They will be discussing: 

  • What’s really happening in the inner, middle and outer rings of Sydney?
  • How should buyers navigate this changing covid impacted market?
  • Will the so-called “fiscal cliff” materialise once job-keeper finishes?
  • What suburbs are showing the best value in this market?
  • With prices coming back - how much further could they fall?
  • Are some regions holding up better than others and why?
  • When will listing volumes start to rise – what is holding vendors back?
  • What trends has covid created and will this continue once a vaccine is found?
  • Is now a good time for home buyers looking to upsize or downsize?

The corona virus is having worldwide impacts and slowing trade and commerce across much of the globe that may tip some economies into temporary recession.

* Are there hidden opportunities to buy in this market?
These are just a sample of the questions we will be discussing on the webinar – PLUS we give you the opportunity to ask LIVE questions in real time.

The single biggest mistake Investors make

Tuesday 10th March

1pm - 2pm (Sydney time) 

Most investors make one big mistake - and all other mistakes flow from this one fundamental error - not spending the time and money to do the necessary research.

Property investment has been described as a "mugs game" in a recent media article, because so many small investors fail to achieve the outcomes they had hoped for. But you will get a poor result if you don't do your preliminary research - spending sufficient time yourself and getting quality information from a range of experts in property and finance.
If you fail to do this research you will end up buying the wrong property, for the wrong price in the wrong location.

Join us for a live panel discussion moderated by Terry Ryder of Hotspotting.
Joining him are Rich Harvey of Propertybuyer, Mark Shorrock of Bluestone Property Management & Sales, Peter Foldes of Washington Brown Depreciation and James Dawson of the Commercial Investing Academy. The panel will be discussing the importance of treating property investment as a business not a hobby - and what you need to do to be successful and join the 1% of investors with multiple investment properties.
