It's Official!!! Brisbane will be the host city for the 2032 Olympic Games.  What will this mean for Brisbane and more importantly what will this mean for the Brisbane Property Market?

Today's episode focuses on all of these things.  We discuss why the 2032 Olympic Games are different to previous Olympic events and how Brisbane, as the host city, will repurpose the facilities required to host the Games.  We share information from various research reports that were commissioned as part of the Olympic Bid so that listeners can gain a more in-depth understanding of the benefits to Brisbane and Queensland as a whole.

It is the beginning of a new era for Brisbane and we are excited at what this announcement means for our Great city.  Hold on for the ride everyone ... this is going to put Brisbane on the global map!

EP 61 - 10 Ways to Research Property in Brisbane

July 8, 2021

Brisbane houses are quite different in the inner city suburbs because of the way they were built in the 1800s and early 1900s.  Our Traditional Character Homes are often the most sought after type of property in the Blue chip locations of our city.  Many of these homes have identifiable features that tell a story from the past and this is what we discuss in this episode.

If you have an interest in the history of a home in Brisbane it is possible to find out a lot of information about when the home was built, who the builder and architect might have been and how the home might have changed over the decades since it was initially constructed.  You might also be able to find out who else has lived in your home in the past.

If you are wondering how to do this, tune into this episode for what you need to know.

EP60 - Understanding the Market Frenzy in Brisbane

EP60 - Understanding the Market Frenzy in Brisbane

July 1, 2021

The residential market in Brisbane has been in a rapid period of growth in months. Prices are escalating every week and with buyers who have been missing out, we are seeing that they are becoming even more eager to secure a property with every week that passes by. 

Buyers are even taking big risks just so that their offers are competitive. We are seeing buyers dropping out the finance clause and even eliminating the condition that allows them the security of a post-purchase building and pest inspection. 

This leads to the question … how long is this buyer frenzy likely to continue and when might the Brisbane Property Market start to slow down? This is what we cover in this episode.

EP 59 - Sophisticated Investment Strategies in Brisbane

June 24, 2021

In today's episode, we discuss various types of property investment strategies.

From entry-level property investing, which involves buying a property and renting it out long term, to more sophisticated strategies for those who prefer to take higher risks for higher returns. We outline what opportunities are available to property investors here in Brisbane.

With every strategy, property investors need to understand what is involved as well as when and where it works best. We discuss the pros and cons of being able to add value through renovations, knock-down rebuilds, and even developments such as subdivision projects and multiple dwellings.

We hope this provides some insights into the opportunities that exist in Brisbane for those investors looking to force more value into their portfolios.

EP 55 - Brisbane’s top ten growth suburbs in the last 12 Months

This week's episode focuses on the median price changes at a suburb level in Brisbane over the last 12 months. We dissect the Brisbane Housing Market and name some of the underperforming suburbs over the last 12 months and then disclose the suburbs that have experienced the highest levels of growth throughout Greater Brisbane.

Because this episode is based on data only, we also provide some insights into why this information must be interpreted with caution. Many buyers rely solely on data to make investment decisions, however, we discuss why caution needs to be exercised if this is an individual's approach.
