Gentrification: Turning Ugly Ducklings Into Beautiful Swans

We’ve hit double figures on the Urban Property Investor! Welcome to episode 10 – I’m beginning to feel all grown up in podcast land!

Today we’re talking gentrification. How some suburbs turn into Places. Why does Redfern become refined? Why are the likes of Manly and Bondi a BRAND and not just a suburb. It’s all down to gentrification. 


On this episode I share – 

0:44 – Gentrification 101

2:27 – How Redfern gentrified

15:45 – Don’t buy in sleepy towns

21:28 – The Hipster, the IT Professional & Gentrification (or how gentrification happens)

31:39 – Place vs Suburb

35:48 – Gentrification Case Study: Footscray, Melbourne. 


And so much more!
