Following on from my the topic I spoke about (Money & Wealth Mindset) at last week’s forum, I believe strongly in the topic that I wanted the thousands of subscribers to our newsletter to also benefit from this message that mindset is the key thing that limits us to reach our full potential, so I will continue on the topic in this month Direc...

You Motivate You – But We Can Help

A few months back I attended a professional development day, which is part of holding my qualifications as a licensed finance broker. These types of events can be a bit hit and miss, but I always take the view that you can never stop learning and improving, so even at some of the dud events I usually still get one or two key points or ideas to take...

RBA Rates Decision – November 2010

Unless you have been living under a rock you would by now know that the RBA lifted the official cash rate by 0.25% to 4.75% yesterday afternoon.  The first rise in over 6 months.  They saw it prudent to move the cost of money higher, in light of the relatively strong economy and a growing global outlook.  This will most likely be the last rate r...

Want Advice or an Opinion?

When it comes to property investing, everyone has an opinion on what makes a good property investment. I’m not exactly sure why, but I think it has a lot to do with the fact that we know so many people who have made a property purchase and I suppose it’s the fact that once they have experienced it, they know a bit about the topic and are happy ...

Will House Prices Slow Over the Longer Term?

I read with interest an article relating to a study by the Switzerland Bank for International Settlements, which indicated that house price growth may slow by up to 30% over the next 40 years due to Australia's ageing population.  The study highlighted that demographics factors resulting from the baby boomers pushed up Australian House Prices by...

RBA Rates Decision – October 2010

The warnings came early this month when the RBA Governor made some hawkish comments about the health of the Australian economy.  He said the RBA is ready to manage robust growth, stating “part of that task will, clearly, fall to monetary policy.” He noted potential downside risks to the economy, but said “If downside possibilities do not mat...

Rates on the Rise….?

I can understand why we are referred to as the ‘Lucky Country’.  Great climate, enough fertile land to produce food to support our population & provide a great quality of life and standard of living, stable government (well sort of) and the most important thing from an investors view point - an economy that has grown over the last 20 years...

Negative Gearing to Continue..

With Labor now running the country for the next few years it’s nice to know that they stated at the National Press Club debate, that they will not be touching negative gearing. Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) president David Airey was pleased with this announcement.  "This is fantastic news for renters, affordable housing and real e...

Spring Season – Real Test For Prices

It’s well commented on that Spring is the time that the Real Estate market becomes the most active in terms of new listings and buying activity across pretty much every state. It’s the time of the year when the garden presents the best and the weather sees buyers coming out of winter hibernation, so sellers think they are going to get the be...

You have to Spend Money to Make Money

Let start with a simple question – Can you give me an example of how you have made money without spending any of your own money? Let’s get the obvious answers out of the way first: Inheritance. Good luck to those waiting around lazily to collect someone else’s initial spend to originally make it, not to mention the risk they took. St...

RBA Rates Decision – September 2010

The cash rate remains on hold for another month as the RBA sits on its hands awaiting the latest inflation data for the September quarter due out 27th October.
