What do we need to know about real estate in 2021 that can help us be smarter and more successful investors?
And what can we learn from the past?
When it comes to real estate and what motivates and attracts us as buyers, renters or tenants, the past few generations have seen a dramatic change in what we desire from property.
Becoming even more wealthier from real estate is now a thing of the future…the immediate future.
According to Bill Evans, the Chief Economist at Westpac – 2022 is promising big numbers for capital growth. Brisbane – 20 per cent, Perth – 18 per cent, Sydney – 14 per cent and Melbourne – 12 per cent.
How do we know this? Josh Frydenberg, Treasurer for the Australian Government announced it last year…
The future of real estate is looking very different to the past which is largely being driven by a phygital world.
It’s called phygital because it’s part physical, part digital, and it’s creating colossal change in the landscape of real estate with a rebirth well and truly set to come.
Now we understand today that it is now possible, and often practical, for us to work from home. Therefore, your choice of real estate has become an even greater consideration.
Does the property offer a nice backyard or a good balcony to stretch your legs? Does it have a study or a spare room which you can use for work? All of a sudden, the idea of real estate has morphed into not just being a place where you go to sleep, but a place where many now work too.

Understanding what gentrification is, how it unfolds, and how it creates opportunities in real estate, is the key to benefiting from it as a property investor and growing your capital wealth faster.
Forget the fairy tales. The real way to live happily ever after is to live passively ever after – that’s by owning income-producing real estate and rental properties that provide you with enough cash to live off.
Choosing the right real estate in the right locations is key to creating properties that won’t only increase in capital growth over many years, but will start creating a steady income of cash into your back pocket much faster than that.
You’ve probably heard the phrase that property investment is a long-term game, right? It’s not rocket science. Buy the right property in the right location, add value to it and then well, buckle up for the Hold Phase. The Hold Phase, meaning the longer you hold on to...
Does being brave and making money go hand in hand? World leaders in finance and investments are often said to show courage (or “greed” in Warren Buffet’s case!) when others show fear. Put simply, this approach to property investment really means to capitalise on...
Old and ageing real estate is a potential death trap for property investors – I call it dying real estate. Dying real estate is that house on the street – you know the one, we all know one – that might have been a gem in its day, but is now a paint-peeling,...
Baby boomers have typically done exceptionally well when it comes to maximising the potential real estate can offer - although in recent times the booming has been more in favour of much younger generations such as millennials. In terms of property, the year 2021 may...
It’s the question on every investor’s mind – ‘Will property continue to grow in 2021?’ With our global economy still adapting from the fallout of COVID-19, it’s evident that we’re not out of the woods yet. It’s a good time to take stock and assess which investments...
