Today we are digging into the Pyramid of Liveability and how it can create incredible wealth in real estate. There are magnets that pull people to certain areas, and the magnets in recent years have become increasingly related to lifestyle.
With more people working from home, and with the smart economy creating more wealthy people, live, work, play, are the factors that are influencing people’s decisions on where to live.

Most of us have visions of sharing a home with the person we love. However, in Australia and many other countries real estate owes a large part of its success to divorce! Approximately 50% of marriages end up down the drain, leaving many to look for new shelter. In 2019 113,000 marriages and 49,000 divorces were granted in Australia, whilst the ABS has the median duration of a marriage at 12.2 years.
Married or divorced, single or loved up, this episode cracks the code of winning in love and money.
Investing in property for the first time can be exciting and thrilling. It can also be very, VERY confusing, and not to mention scary. This is our future we’re talking about, and there’s money at stake. We don’t want to stuff it up.
As a beginner to property investing there are some important things to remember and steps to take if we want to get off to the best start.
Investing is a lot about you and your ideals. You’re going to need to sort out your finances and determine what kind of properties to look into, but first and foremost you’re also going to have to choose a location to invest in.
In Australia, property investors are quick to jump at the big two markets: Sydney and Melbourne. It makes sense, that’s where most of the urban population live so demand is clearly there.
Sydney and Melbourne are global cities meaning they are overrun by people and struggle to keep up with infrastructure and change. They have no room to grow.
As our economy becomes more decentralised, we’re starting to see real estate investors become smarter with where they choose to buy.
Rather than seeking out areas of population growth – savvy investors know to look for neighbourhoods where knowledge is a big source of growth.
Knowledge areas are populated by smart businesses, smart governments and above all, smart people. These are people who are skilled, and generally come with money to spend which in turn results in a strong local economy.
