46: The Fiscal Cliff Is a Lie – feat. Terry Ryder

How many times have you put off making an investment decision, because there is “something just ahead”?

Or said to yourself “If I just wait ‘til after (insert made up excuse here), then it will be the PERFECT time to invest…”

Only to find yourself a month, 6 months, or even years down the line having never taken action.

Did you find yourself worrying about the property market during Q2 of 2020?

Perhaps right now, you’re still waiting until things get better before investing again…

But what if I told you that despite predictions and claims by property pundits, the Australian property market remains strong?

You see, the “fiscal cliff” is indeed a lie. 

Today’s episode features Terry Ryder, property expert and Australia’s leading real estate researcher.

We’ll be talking about the gross inaction of some property investors…

What actually happened in the last quarter…

Vacancy rate differences between this year and the last…

And heaps more!

We’ll also touch on dominant trends to look out for when making real estate investment decisions.

See you on the inside!
