People get really obsessed about ‘when’ is the right time to buy. But what if you had a suite of strategies available to you that you could draw on to make money in any market? This short video explains how to work with the property cycles at any time.
There is a lot of speculation at the moment that Australia is entering a very flat period in terms of growth certainly that is, I guess, helped along by the fact that there’s been a lot of government intervention into policy around the property for the last sort of 12 to 24 months.
We’ve seen Africa involved which has really restricted the lending that the banks can do, we’ve seen policy changes which are looking to cut tax incentives, and all sorts of other things lots of radio at all you’ll be hearing a lot of these debates around and the concerns around how are they going to curb capital growth given that they’ve had huge growth in a lot of the major capitals over the last say two to four years.
So what I really want to talk about is this idea that yes cycles do occur within real estate you’ve got periods of massive growth and you’ve got periods of flatlining occasionally depending on which sector of the market you’re talking about you can experience small declines but the reality is if you’re a savvy investor and you are looking to stay light on your feet then there is always opportunity in every market.
So in a lot of cities right now there’s talk that you know things are leveling off we’re not getting those huge double-digit levels of growth each year although in some cases that is still continuing to happen and I think what I’d like to focus on is this idea that even outside of the traditional buy-and-hold type strategies there are lots of strategies that you can still employ to manufacture and create almost artificial growth during periods of flatness.
It’s always a great time to be looking at property as a vehicle for wealth creation and if you’re taking a medium to long-term view then this whole idea that you know great you’re going through a period of flatness or less volatility in the market can actually be not such a bad thing.
