Sam’s Latest Episodes
The Urban Property Investor Podcast uncovers answers to the critical “what” “why” “where” and “how” of investment using behavioural economic insights into how everyone can prosper in the cities of tomorrow as investors of today. This podcast goes beyond investing in 2020 and tackles ways to bulletproof your investment plan by understanding influences on people, place and property.
I believe this is perhaps the final year to invest in property for the first time. The rising market is here, and if you don’t get into the market in 2021, you might be waiting a very long time.
Understanding today’s market has a marker all of us have never had before: COVID. From open homes being shut down during outbreaks to wild price rises in certain locations, understanding the market in 2021 is nuanced compared to other rising markets.
Where is Australia’s most undersupplied location? The answer may surprise. What’s up with the real estate FOMO? And how do we fix this supply issue? Oh and one more thing, I’m fundraising for love – yep, my friend Elle is looking for love and I’m going to play cupid and raise money for Room to Read at the same time!
I had to battle some big money shame demons growing up. I’ve since learnt that I wasn’t alone! Did you know most people feel ashamed about money and their financial status! Remember, no one is born knowing anything about money. Most of us get to our adult life with no comprehension about money.
And that’s OK. Warren Buffet wasn’t extremely wealthy until his late 50s. If you’re hard on yourself around money and not recognising that it is a continuous learning process, your money muscles will remain small. This is a big conversation; I hope you enjoy.
This episode is like the home cooking show of real estate wealth! I’ve got 10 ingredients to put into this recipe that generates wealth – when you follow the recipe of course.
Check yourself against each of the 10 ingredients – and make sure you include the ones you aren’t using at the moment.
Town planning can make or break your investment. For every billion people there is on earth, you need a trillion dollars of infrastructure to service them. With the population rising, you can be sure to find real estate on the treasure chest of wealth. If cities and towns aren’t planned well though, your investment can be a recipe for disaster.
How do you win in the green economy? When investing in real estate, climate change and the environment are more important to factor in than ever. You don’t want to buy property that will be uninsurable in the future. And that’s becoming more common by the day. More than 700,000 dwellings will be uninsurable in the future due to risk of natural disaster.
What is the star rating of the suburb you live in? Some are terrible, and it’s little wonder why. The higher the star rating, the likelihood of that area appreciating in value and being highly sought after.
Property investors can embrace the idea that if you invest in an area centred around wellness, you can almost bet on that it will rise in value.
Happy New Year!
I love this time of the year for our desire to look ahead! With 2020 behind us, what does the coming year look like in the world of real estate, especially for investors? I have my views, and I must say they are largely optimistic. Of course, whilst some uncertainty still remains, these cannot be set in stone, but with the government supporting almost every element of real estate, you can be more confident than not that 2021 will be a strong year for investors.
How much does fear control your investment decisions? And did you know that we all sabotage in different ways? From the victim to the avoider and many in between, there are a number of ways we sabotage.
And most importantly, we all do it uniquely. It’s so important to know what type of saboteur you are. I share my own profile on this episode, including how I’ve sabotaged wealth in the past.
I really love the Positive Intelligence Saboteur test – you can do it for free here –
Happy New Year!
My resolution for you is that you create the wealth to earn $3000 per week from real estate. Yes, that’s my plan for you! You might prefer $2000 or $1000 or $5000 per week. That’s up to 🙂 If you think that’s a good plan for you, then you’ll love this episode! Because as we get into 2021, I don’t want you to make a NY Resolution to plank for 60 seconds. No! I want you to resolve to be one of the 1% of Australians that own 5 investment properties or more.
How do you treat time? What is your relationship with time like? At times likes this (Merry Christmas!), people think they have no time. But think about it, time is all we have!
And from an investing point of view – you’re doing well if you live for three property cycles. Yes, only three. Each cycle goes for approximately 15 years, and most people don’t fully appreciate how quickly that time goes.
So, if you feel like time is running out, or perhaps you feel like you still have plenty of time – listen up! This interview was made just for you 🙂
