Ep 22 - Finance Strategy - with Special Guest Jessica Peletier

September 24, 2020

One thing we always say when working with Clients is that the Property Investment Strategy must align with an individual's Finance Strategy and Tax Strategy.  In this episode, our Guest, Jessica Peletier - Director of Seed Financial, provides some valuable insights into what property buyers should be considering when they are obtaining finance for a new property purchase.  We take a deep dive into finance strategy for any type of property purchase.

Whether the property being purchased is a home, or an investment property, loan structuring and portfolio planning is beneficial.  The lowest interest rate may not be the most important thing to focus on.

To find out how you can ensure your mortgage structure is set up in a way that is beneficial for you, both now and in the future, tune in to this episode and get all of the details.

September 10, 2020

This is a special episode in which we take a deep dive into how Brisbane became the City that it is today.  We take a step back in time and uncover how the typical block sizes came to be in Brisbane and why the residential landscape is so different in Brisbane, compared to Sydney and Melbourne.

Ep 19 - The Knock-Down & Re-Build Strategy

Ep 19 - The Knock-Down & Re-Build Strategy

September 3, 2020

Home Buyers and Property Investors in Brisbane have been quietly enjoying lots of equity uplift through the strategy of buying an older property close to its land value, demolishing it, and then re-building a home on the same site.  We refer to this as a "knock-down & re-build strategy."

We had some recent media exposure highlighting the top 6 suburbs where this strategy works in Brisbane.  Off the back of this, we wanted to share the way to go about actually completing a project like this in Brisbane.  Whether you are a Home Buyer or a Property Investor ... this could be a strategy to consider.

This is not a strategy for everyone, and the areas where something could go wrong are discussed.  However when selecting the right location and working with a professional team ... the results can be truly amazing!
