If you're here because you heard the then check out some of my back catalogue here - Otherwise it felt good to share our investing "moments". I hope you enjoy. "The Australian stock market is 2% of the global market. For every great Australian company, I can name an even better international equivalent. When Bryce and I started investing, international shares were difficult. They were really expensive and most of the time, you just couldn't access most markets. And what we've seen over the last even just five years is accessibility and costs have come down so much, and it's now just as easy to buy an American share or European share as an Australian share. And so, for us it feels like a no brainer. If we look around, you know, in this room what we're using, but more generally what we use in our lives, it's Apple computers, and we search on Google, we use Microsoft products. We want to invest in what we know, and more and more of what we know are overseas listed companies." Alec Renehan.

Steppingstone strategy: how to buy your dream home
If the recent property price growth predictions become reality over the next couple of years, more homeowners may become ‘priced out’ of their desired location. What might be affordable today, could quickly become unaffordable, as prices can rise quickly. Sometimes it’s not possible to buy your dream home in one fell swoop. But do not despair. A steppingstone strategy could be the solution. Buying a dream home has always been a struggle, embrace it Property has always seemed expensive. I bought my first property 23 years ago for $150,000 and it was a big deal. It was a stretch, financially. It was a dump that needed renovating. Getting onto the property ladder and buying your dream home will take work. Some sacrifices. A little bit of hustling. But that has always been the case. Focus on the solutions, not the problems. Focus on building your deposit/equity If you are income-rich but asset poor, you need to build equity to extend your purchasing power. That equity could come in the form of cash savings/deposit or equity in an existing property. If your income earning capacity is limited, then accumulating more equity reduces the amount you need to borrow and as such, you are closer to being able to buy your dream home. Either way, your sole goal should be to build equity. How to implement a steppingstone strategy A steppingstone strategy involves buying an owner-occupier property with the sole aim of accumulating as much equity as possible, as fast as possible. Then, selling that property and using the equity to upgrade to a superior property. And continuing to do that until you have attained your dream home. There are three key steps to this strategy. _Step 1: Pick a location that has attractive short term growth prospects_ Buying a property in a location that is popular and is enjoying rising property price momentum can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you. The goal is to create equity as soon as possible. Therefore, it’s not as important to form a view about a given location’s long term growth prospects, unlike when buying a pure investment property. You just want to form a view about whether the price momentum will continue in the short term. Typically, locations that are gentrifying will exhibit above average growth rates. Gentrifying suburbs tend to have similar themes such as a changing demographic, increased renovation activity, new infrastructure and/or amenities that enhance the community feel (liveability) of the location and so on. Whilst it’s important to not buy at the peak of the market i.e. after prices have risen as much as they will, it is equally too risky to try to pick the next growth suburb, because you could be wrong. Essentially, you want recent evidence that the rising demand for the location is generating price growth. And that prices still have some future upside. _Step 2: Buy an older house with scope to manufacture equity_ Often, but not always, it is best to buy a house instead of a townhouse, villa unit or apartment. Firstly, houses tend to have proportionately more land value. Secondly, houses tend to offer more scope to improve their overall value e.g. renovation of bathrooms and kitchens, landscaping, adding a room/living area and so on. This is called manufacturing equity when the property’s value appreciates by more than the cost of the improvements made. Older houses (e.g. built pre-1970’s) offer better opportunities than newer ones, because there tends to be greater scope to make improvements, such as adding an additional bedroom, adding living areas or make it ‘open plan’. The risk of unexpected cost overruns is less likely if you stick to making cosmetic improvements i.e. no structural changes. It is also important that the finished product is aimed at the typical buyer in that location – it doesn’t have to appeal to your tastes – just have wide appeal to prospective buyers. It is important to note that suburbs closer to the CBD tend to offer better growth prospects. Therefore, start with the blue-chip suburbs and then move further out until you find a location that allows you to buy a house that fits within your budget. Sub-dividing a large block and constructing a second dwelling can also be a great way to manufacture (build) equity. It’s important to obtain tax advice from an experienced tax agent before you undertake such a project. _Step 3: Occupy the property to avoid CGT_ Buying, renovating and selling property is not a costless exercise. You pay stamp duty when you buy and agent fees when you sell. The last thing you want to do is make a donation to the ATO, as it will eat into your financial gains. Therefore, if you can nominate the property as your main residence, it will exempt you from paying capital gains tax (CGT). It might be difficult to occupy the property for the entire ownership period, especially if you need to complete significant renovations, but that should not prevent you from continuing to claim it as your main residence[1]. In summary Buy a house that is located in a suburb that is growing in popularity, as close to the CBD as your budget will allow. Select a property that has plenty of scope to add value e.g. renovate. Hold it for 2 to 7 years (as short as possible) before selling and moving closer to your desired (dream) location. Beware; this is a higher risk strategy Warren Buffett says risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing. This strategy will require a lot of homework including speaking to various property professionals. You must upskill yourself so that you can identify the best property prospects. It is still worth engaging a buyers’ agent as long as they have experience in buying the types of property in the locations you are targeting. In addition to upskilling yourself, you will need to assemble an experienced team including a mortgage broker, building inspector (you don’t want any nasty surprises), possibly a builder and maybe also financial advisor. Advice that makes money, pays for itself. The key assumption here is that the market will move in your favour. Of course, there is a risk that this might not happen, and you could be caught living in this property for longer than expected. Can your family help you? If you have enough income but don’t have a sufficient deposit, and alternative to the above strategy is to use a family guarantee, which I have discussed previously. Risk and reward I acknowledge this strategy is more hands-on and won’t suit everyone. However, there cannot be any reward without taking some risk and working hard. It might take you a few properties (steppingstones) and years to get to your desired location, but once you’re there, you and your family will enjoy the benefits for decades to come. [1] Of course, this is a generalisation, and you must obtain personalised tax advice.

Ditch the Debt and get Rich with Effie Zahos
Navigating the world of personal finance can be overwhelming, even for an adult who has quite a bit of experience in the working world. Yet with some smart planning, a good strategy, and an understanding of the basics you should be able to develop the money-management skills you need to get your finances under control. And that’s what I discuss in today’s show with Australia’s leading finance columnist Effie Zahos. While many people listen to this podcast because they’re interested in property investing, money management is a critical part of any type of investing, and especially real estate investing. You need good money management to save your first deposit and once you own a property or two money management is even more important. So don’t let the financial world intimidate you. You may not have been taught much about finances, but I believe that 80% of personal finance is not financial education, but financial behaviour. If you can modify your behaviour with your finances, you can modify your financial future. And even if you don’t have money problems, I think you’ll enjoy my chat with Effie today as we discussed her new book and some lessons that we should be teaching our children and grandchildren. And of course, I will be sharing my regular mindset message with you. Ditch the Debt and Get Rich The Covid-19 pandemic impacted just about every Australian. Some people manage to cope well financially – others did even better financially turning lemons into lemonade, however, many Australians ran into financial difficulty with some only managing to stay afloat by raiding their super or putting a pause on their debt It was just another example of the rich getting richer and they did so by understanding the way money and finance works. Now you know one of the aims of my podcast and my blogs is to make more and more Australians financially fluent and help them get control of the finances. So, I was pleased to hear that leading Australian finance commentator and author Effie Zahos has just published a new book called Ditch the Debt and Get Rich. Effie Zahos is one of Australia’s leading personal finance commentators, with more than two decades of experience helping Aussies make the most of their money. She’s a regular money expert on Channel 9’s Today Show and on radio around Australia and was editor of Money magazine and is now Editor-at-Large at Canstar. Some of the subjects that Effie and I discussed * Effie’s journey and why she believes it’s so important to be the best financial version of yourself and learn the right things to teach your kids about finance. * Why more Australians aren’t wealthy and how they’ve become an instant gratification society. * The importance of mindset in developing wealth. * Money personalities – The animal traits that correspond to how you deal with money: Peacocks, Squirrels, Sloths, Owls, Ostriches * The problem of buy now, pay later, and how to be more aware of the tricks retailers use to get us to spend. * How to break the cycle of living payday to payday by no longer setting yourself up for failure. And how to put yourself on a bare-bones budget to catch up. * Common money mistakes. * Debt repayment strategies. * How to think rich in order to become rich. * How children learn financial literacy from their parents. * Some of the lessons Effie has learned over many years writing and speaking about finance. * It’s not what you earn that counts it’s what you spend. * Compound interest can make you a millionaire. The great Albert Einstein once said: "Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it ... he who doesn't ... pays it". * Learn to say no * I am my best investment * I will continue to make mistakes * love your superannuation fund * Set your savings on autopilot * Have a plan and stick to it * The people who will most benefit from Effie’s new book: savvy investors, people who need a nudge, and people who want to be a better financial version of themselves Links and Resources: Michael Yardney Metropole’s Strategic Property Plan – to help both beginning and experienced investors Effie Zahos’ new book – Ditch the Debt and Get Rich Shownotes plus more here: Ditch the Debt and get Rich with Effie Zahos Some of our favourite quotes from the show: “There’s a whole science behind behavioural finance, and that’s why I think reading your new book Ditch the Debt and Get Rich is important.” – Michael Yardney “Some financial discipline early in life will allow people to have those enjoyments later on.” – Michael Yardney “The gap between what you gain and how much you avoid offsetting the gain is the figure that matters the most.” – Michael Yardney PLEASE LEAVE US A REVIEW Reviews are hugely important to me because they help new people discover this podcast.
