The Property Trio

  • #258: Market Update April 24 – Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth Juggernauts Continue, Unit Demand Rises, Federal Budget Rental Relief & Trajectory

    20 MAY. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Mike kicks off this episode, and directly following Budget Night, the Trio chat all things Federal budget. From the lack of new property initiatives to questioning the impact of the Federal Rental relief, one thing is obvious. The Labour government are acutely aware of the need to see inflation rates reduce, and we are less than one year out from an election. The budget could be described as tame, but that doesn't slow the discussion at all for the Trio. April’s increase takes the current growth cycle into its 15th month, with housing values up 11.1% since the trough in January last year. However, almost every capital city is recording stronger growth conditions across the lower value range of the market. The shift towards stronger conditions across lower value markets can also be seen between the housing types, with growth in unit values outpacing house values over the past three months. Hobart was the only city where houses recorded a larger gain than units over the past three months. Regional markets have shown a slightly stronger quarterly growth rate over the past five months than their capital city counterparts, following a 10-month period where the combined capitals index was outperforming. Regional Victoria (-0.1%) was the only rest of state market to record a decline in values over the rolling quarter. Nationally, rents were up 0.8% in April, a slightly lower rate of growth relative to February and March when the national rental index rose 0.9% and 1.0% respectively. As Dave points out, Although rental growth may be tapering, supply remains extremely short and the trend towards smaller households seen through COVID has been slow to reverse, further amplifying rental demand. It is likely rental growth will remain well above average for some time yet. In April, the national gross rental yield rose to 3.75%, the highest reading since October 2019, up from a record low of 3.16% in January 2021. Vacancies continue to remain tight, although a subtle ease is evident from last month to our current month, with more than half of the capital cities increasing slightly. Dwelling sales look to have moved through a cyclical peak in November last year. Although the monthly trend in home sales is highly seasonal, the less seasonal six-month trend has remained relatively flat since the November rate hike. Estimated sales over the past three months are tracking 8.6% higher than at the same time last year, and about 5.1% above the previous five-year average. Listing volumes tell an interesting story, and as Cate points out, the rate of new listings is remarkably 'normal', in fact it's slightly stronger than the past five year average. However, the total listings tell another story. Demand is exceeding supply, and older listings are now being snapped up by buyers. The trio canvas what the possible driver could be, and they determine that old stock, (in particular, units) could be the reason. Given the the relative outperformance of units in most capital cities, this possibility doesn't seem all that extreme. In an effort to cover off the Consumer Sentiment Index, we turned to the ANZ Roy Morgan poll given Westpac's index is yet to materialise. Consumer Confidence remains very weak, sitting at its lowest level for the year. Show Notes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/05/20/ep-258-april-market-update/

  • #257: The Comprehensive Guide to Townhouses – Performance, Selection, Property Planning and Development Projects

    13 MAY. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Cate circles on on what technically defines a townhouse. She shares an example and talks about the differences between apartments and townhouses when it comes to land on title. Mike asks a tough question, "How do townhouses perform, as compared to houses?" but as Cate points out, it's not a hard and fast rule. There are elements that can bolster up the value (and performance) of a townhouse such as vista, prestigious locale, water views etc. Of course Land to Asset Ratio comes into play, but it isn't fair to classify all townhouses the same.  Dave talks about the complexities of buying a townhouse that is yet to have it's subdivision registered. This is technically deemed an 'off the plan purchase' and this does carry lending risk for some buyers.  But what can buyers do when they need to move in to their new home by a certain date, but title registration is delayed? Cate shares an interesting possible solution .... a license agreement. Cate runs through the various subsets of units; apartments, villa units, and townhouses. She breaks down the hierarchy of land ownership for each subset and details some of the formats of townhouses and common land versus no common land. And how do some townhouses qualify for no owner's (or strata) corporations?  "These types of townhouses are inherently more valuable".  The Trio delve into the attributes that developers look for to optimise their profits on a multi-unit development site, but Cate also talks about some of the investor mistakes associated with medium-density development activity areas.  What are some of the attributes that Cate looks for when assisting developer clients? Tune to find out...  Lending is not always straight-forward or easy for developer finance and Dave shares some of the categories of lending and LVRs, from small-time residential to larger-scale commercial. Buckle in for some valuable, technical insights and explanations, and Cate points out the risks.  And what are some of the things that developers get wrong?   ..... and the gold nuggets! Cate Bakos's gold nugget: Bedroom count can create a difficult compromise. Is the bedroom too tight? Is the proportionality of the unit not feeling right? You have to ask yourself the question; "Have you bought yourself a lemon?" Overcapitalisation risk challenges the profitability of making changes, so buyers need to search in the right area for the right townhouse.   Dave Johnston's gold nugget: If a townhouse is going to be a stepping stone home or an investment, it can be quite feasible for first time buyers. Dave implores buyers to consider buying into a great location that is close to where they would ultimately like to live in their family home.  Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: Mike likes townhouses! Provided, of course, that they are well-located. He notes the stronger rental yields, but his concern is that of scarcity.  Show notes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/05/13/all-things-townhouses/

  • #256: Property Investor and Taxpayer Insights from the ATO Unveiled – Exploring the Shifting Sands of the Property Investment Landscape

    6 MAY. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Mike has crafted a great episode from the 2020/2021 tax year data. The average income rose to $68,289. Surprise, surprise, Double Bay came in at first $266,000 and Dover Heights, Rose Bay and Vaucluse came in second at $230,597, and Toorak (Vic) starred, but Cottesloe and Peppermint Bay in WA came in third at $229,000. The median is what’s interesting. Stats can be distorting. The median in the top ten suburnbs is $80,000, but the average is significantly higher”Cate sheds light on the returns lodged during the year 2020/2021 which were up 28.3% on the 2006/2007 financial year. A large proportion of SMSF owners account for this strong differential and the Trio ponder the popularity of SMSF investment. “If you don’t own your own home, you’re in big trouble when you retire.” How much truth to this claim is there?  The Trio unpack the history of superannuation and reflect on super from an employer’s angle too. The big bucks earners start with Surgeons at an average income of $457,281, followed by Anaesthetists, then ‘Financial Dealers’ (whatever that means?!), and fourth with Mining Engineers. Where does the revenue come from? Company tax and GST, followed by individual income tax, and only 15% is GST. Dave dares to raise the concept of bracket creep. Mike shares a startling stat, “88.35% of Aussies earn less than $120K, but the remaining 11.65% pay just over half of all income tax in Australia.” The bracket that most Australians sit within is the $6001 – $37,000 income earners. Dave adds that 4% of income earners pay 35% of tax and he highlights the sensitivities of bracket creep and the required changes. Historically we have always had net rental losses, but what happened in 2020/2021? Cate explains…tune in to find out!How many people earn six or more properties? Cate has some insightful stats to share. Check out our show notes to see an interesting breakdown. .….. and the gold nuggets! Mike Mortlock’s gold nugget: Things are a little bit more complex than the media would have you believe. When you slice and dice the data, you get some interesting results. But stay tuned for the battle leading up to the Federal election. Cate Bakos’s gold nugget: The fiancial year where we saw net rental gains (2020/2021) needs to be contrasted against the following year. We’re on treacherous territory with over 90% of private investors servicing the rental market while our politicians focus on the downside of negative gearing. Dave Johnston’s gold nugget: The word negative gearing needs to be understood better in relation to all business activities. As Dave points out, when this term is associated with property it’s portrayed as ‘the big bad wolf’, but negative gearing is widely misunderstood.

  • #255: Property Plan Case Study #9 - Can We Scale Back Work With a Sea Change at Age 50? Navigating Work, Wealth, and Waterfront Dreams!

    29 ABR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Cate kicks off the episode and invites Dave to share a bit of information about our exciting case study couple and their quest to move to Venus Bay to enjoy a simpler life. They asked Dave's team to help them work out how they can achieve their goals, including the generation of a passive income and retaining their Melbourne home as an investment. Is it realistic? Is it achievable? The Trio delve into the emotions that can run when setting these types of goals. They also congratulate our case study couple for having a firm goal and setting about constructing a plan.  "Not having a plan is like chipping away at a piece of marble without knowing what the statue is going to be", says Mike.  Rachel and Marcus have a very solid financial outlook. Cate gives a fiscal snapshot of their debt, income and equity position for context and Dave runs through the critical questions that are asked in order to determine their property plan.  Our case study couple rated themselves on the risk profile meter as 4-4.5 out of 5, however the Trio challenge this and discuss their rationale for down-scaling our couple to lesser risk score.  Dave steps through the assumptions and inputs, and Cate weaves through each of the three scenarios that were presented to the couple.  What is a prudent capital growth forecast rate? And when should consumers be wary? Mike expands on the reasons why some claims can be dangerous and Cate warns about the risks of buying brand new. The three scenarios show a progression of outcomes, and with small tweaks and changes, each scenario is quite different from the last option. But what are some of the most stunning outcomes, and what are the powerful tweaks that could surprise many of us? Tune in to find out....  Cate touches on the risks of buying a future home, and the Trio share some of the mitigants others who find themselves in a similar situation to consider.  One of the three scenarios not only gets our hard working duo to their goals, but enables them to enjoy an even higher passive income. What are some of the tips, tricks and counter-intuitive moves that they had to consider? We wish Rachel and Marcus a wonderful and rewarding journey, and a fabulous future in Venus Bay!  ..... and the gold nuggets!  Cate Bakos's gold nugget: The tiny little decisions that can be made from one scenario to another may not seem significant, but can be very conservative in the long run. The counter-intuitive suggestions can make a huge difference. Dave Johnston's gold nugget: This is a great example of the benefit of creating a property plan. "For anyone who's interested in creating wealth through property, setting a plan will set you a step ahead."  Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: Make sure you have income protection insurance and other risk-mitigating insurances. Congrats to our case study couple!  Shownotes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/04/29/listener-questions-moving-to-the-coast-for-a-simpler-life/

  • #254: Integrating Property Plans & Financial Plans: Tips & Tricks for Self-Employed, Single Parents & Schemes to Get on the Property Ladder

    22 ABR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Cate kicks off the episode by sharing that the podcast is just a couple of recordings away from it's fifth birthday! Kym is a single mum of two teenage kids, a business owner and her rent on her home has just gone up substantially. Kym has been yearning to get into property ownership for a few years now, but she is facing a few headwinds currently. Dave talks our listeners through some of the hurdles that self employed borrowers face, from financials and timeframes, to heightened scrutiny. He also sheds light on some interesting small business statistics. "Small businesses comprise 97.3% of businesses in the whole nation". Dave steps through the impact that dependants (i.e. children) have on borrowing capacity with some context of a case study. While Mike talks through the high rate of rental increase that Kym is facing. What can a renter do if their rental increase is unfair or unsubstantiated? Tune in to hear... The Trio chat about some of the initiatives available to those who need a bit of assistance with their home buying. From National initiatives to state-based offerings, the Trio chat about each opportunity and consider those that could be helpful for Kym to explore. Shared equity schemes, deposit guarantees, regional opportunities and concessions are some of the items on the discussion table. (See these initiatives in the show notes).  We hope Kym finds some of this helpful, and we love the fact that Kym reached out with a question that applies to so many people. For our second listener questions, Claire asks, "What do you do when your financial planner is anti-property?" Dave breaks down some of the key differences between the role of a financial planner and a property planner. The Trio ponder some of the reasons why some financial planners are less than enthusiastic about property as an asset class. Cate has a few possible reasons on her laundry list and she chats with Mike and Dave about some of these reasons. "You can't sell a third of a property easily." So, how can investors get the best out of their financial planners, and how can they navigate any perceived negativity about property. The Trio have a few tips to share. ..... and the gold nuggets!  Cate Bakos's gold nugget: "To anyone who's looking to get into the property market and needs a little bit of help.... check out some of the initiatives on offer and familiarise yourself with them." Dave Johnston's gold nugget: Dave expands on his answer for Claire about the role of a property planner versus a financial planner. Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: Look at the 'ad-backs' and make sure your accountant is providing reliable information to your broker.

  • #253: Market Update Mar 24 – Migration Trends Driving Values, Taking Stock of Perth, Melbournians Think it’s a Better Time to Buy & Rate Cut

    15 ABR. 2024 · The March 2024 data is out, and Cate concedes she got it wrong with her March data predictions. She's considered the reasons why, and Cate sheds light on a possible reason for this, and it relates to bias. Dave overviews the last twelve months of growth, and he points out that the last year has delivered almost 10% growth for the combined capitals; something very few would have predicted. Cate sheds light on some of the enquiry she's getting, and some of the reasons why investors are turning away from ultra-hot markets. Perth is one example of a hot market, and the Trio explore how much steam remains in the Perth market. Cate recalls a great article from Pete Koulizos in the recent PIPA Newsletter... he believes that Adelaide will continue to perform. Tune in to hear more... Mike segues into rental performance. Median rents as a function of income highlight the expensive cities for tenants. Cate's insights into house versus unit rents is interesting also. Is there a correlation between increased land tax and increasing house rents? Mike explores. Mike dares to broach the question Perth's climbing rents and tight vacancy rates; surely this signals that Perth is not at the top of the cycle. Sales data is showing volumes above the five year average; although the Trio plead with CoreLogic to reinstate listing numbers and agent appraisal activity. Distressed listings are showing an uptick in a few states, however. Are any jungle drums beating in Victoria? Cate delves into the data and asks the hard questions, although Dave wonders if distressed listings paint a picture of the overall health of a given market. Is there a correlation? The Westpac consumer sentiment index isn't showing a dramatically different outlook since last month, but at a state level the indices aren't all aligned. Dave hints at the cities that are showing a more optimistic outlook. Investment lending has increased despite headwinds such as interest rates, additional taxes and onerous rental reforms. This state breakdown of investment activity is intriguing, particularly the disparity between Vic/Tas and the other, hotter states. And... time for our gold nuggets... Cate Bakos's gold nugget: Cate considers how we interpret data, and how bias can be introduced.   Dave Johnston's gold nugget: "n order to avoid FOMO, understand the right price point for yourself. Work out your strategy and match up the property location and type to your strategy. Look at the long term when you're making your property decision. Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: "You can't buy the data, you can only buy the property." Shownotes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/04/15/ep-253-march-market-update/

  • #252: The Owner-Occupier vs. Investor Dilemma – Navigating Purchase Strategy, Affordability, Asset Selection & Loan Approval

    8 ABR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM Sally is about to purchase her first home. She has a deposit of $300K and is targeting a purchase price of $700K - $800K. Sally wants to live in the home, but is feeling that her borrowing capacity as an owner occupier is holding her back. She asks the Trio whether she should initially purchase as an investor in order to borrow more. Dave breaks down Sally's initial strategy with a few clever questions. Sally is targeting Melbourne and she works in town. She is thinking of living in it for 5-10 years, and then upgrading to a larger family home when the time comes, keeping this initial property as an investment. Five to ten years is a long time though, and Sally is keen to find a property that will be adequate for her for a 5-10 year period. Cate has some thought-provoking ideas for Sally to consider. Cate also talks about tenure, and the importance of buyers making sure they have at least five years of tenure in their plan.  Sally has indeed stated that she has done some homework and she’s identified that 2BR townhouses and villa units might be the ideal purchase. Cate demystifies villa units and recalls the conversations she had in previous eps with Pete about dwelling description variations around the nation.  Sally has made a deliberate decision to avoid apartments. But.. not all apartments are equal.  "There's apartments, and then there are apartments".  Which are the variety that Cate thinks are absolute out-performers? Tune in to find out.  Given townhouses aren’t all equal, the Trio unpack the various types of townhouses.  Sally notes that the market conditions have changed a bit over the last couple of years in Melbourne. How can Sally best navigate the Melbourne market over the coming months?  Sally circles back to her original suggestion about getting an investment loan for a property that she wants to live in. But as Dave explains, it’s not that easy.  How do the banks regulate this? Lastly, Sally is unclear on whether she gets the stamp duty benefits if it’s an investment loan. Dave sheds light on some great tips for our loyal listener.  .....and the gold nuggets: Cate Bakos’s gold nugget: Sally can use the ‘sold’ tab on the property search engine to get a great peg in the sand. Dave Johnston’s gold nugget: “Make sure you can purchase a property that you can see yourself living in for 5-7, even 10 years. Can you get a better quality asset in a better location, even if it means forgoing stamp duty savings?” Mike Mortlock’s gold nugget: Mike congratulates Sally for saving $300,000 for a deposit, and he assures Sally not to worry about Melbourne’s slow performance.

  • #251: Rental Revolution Revealed - Unit Rents Gain Ground on Houses, a Temporary Surge or Lasting Trend?

    1 ABR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM For today's episode, Dave throws it out to Mike... the paper that Mike's business has uncovered relates to growth of rents in units, contrasted to house rental price growth. Median rental growth for units have eclipsed that of houses, but why? The Trio unpack their theories. Are investors pushing rents up or is the supply/demand equation speaking up? Mike hands the wooden spoon to the Victorian Parliament "People always want to be close to the action". Mike ponders the pull of the city. And Cate mentions traffic congestion... is it an issue?  Labour shortage is challenging our economy. As Mike and Dave point out, "Anyone who wants a job, can have one." Cate sheds light on unit performance in Melbourne and the investors who feel disenfranchised. We now have an undersupply issue that has challenged units in Melbourne. But what is Mike's data telling us?  "How is our aging population likely to challenge this data?", asks Dave. Mike shares his thoughts. And why is WA outperforming? The Trio shed light on this outperformance.   And our gold nuggets: Dave Johnston's gold nugget: Dave looks forward to the pub! Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: Unit yields may outperform houses. Mike ponders affordability and concludes that units should be considered.  Cate Bakos's gold nugget: "There are markets within markets. It's pockets, it's streets, it's orientation. You have to remember to use the data wisely when you have a specific wish list."  Show notes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/04/01/median-rental-gap-between-houses-and-units-closing/

  • #250: Investment Borrowing Masterclass – Maximise Tax Deductions and Advanced Mortgage Strategies for Long-Term Wealth Creation

    25 MAR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM For today's episode, the Trio are diving into the sophisticated world of investment borrowing and they'll unpack the nuances of leveraging borrowed funds to not just acquire investment properties, but also to optimise the financial structure surrounding your investment to legally optimise deductions. Despite accountants being tax expertes, they are not mortgage strategists and so it is important that investors understand these strategies and are able to impliment them with their strategic mortgage broker. Whether our listeners are seasoned investors or just starting out, today's masterclass with Dave will equip buyers with the insights to navigate the complex landscape of investment borrowing. Dave launches into the ep with the first tip about investment borrowing. But he confuses Mike about good debt versus bad debt. Cate defines good debt, bad debt and terrible debt! Should buyers try to borrow the full purchase price plus all purchase costs? Surely this could feel alarming for those who are debt averse, but the Trio shed light on when this is a great idea, and why it's so beneficial for investors.  Cate raises the concept of 106% Loan to Value Ratio and Dave distils how this works, and why it's not an uncommon LVR. Why is 80% LVR such a well-versed figure though, and what lender benefits to some professionals get to enjoy in relation to higher LVRs?  "If you read in the media, it's all about the cost you have to save for a deposit, but who really saves 20%?", asks Mike. Good question, Mike. The Trio shed light on the reality of this claim. Is there any reason to set up the investment loan limit for more than the full purchase price plus costs? And when is this a dangerous play? Mike delves a bit deeper... From cash-out policies to drawdown processes, Dave walks our listeners through this complex question.  "The true cost of your interest rate after the tax deduction is cheaper than the cost of your interest on your home loan (as long as you're above the tax free threshold with your earnings." What does Dave mean by this, and why is this so critical to understand in relation to 'good debt'?  Which tricky scenarios might fall outside of that general rule of paying interest-only on investment, and P&I on your home loan? Dave has three scenarios, and Cate excitedly recognises that her own personal journey currently fits one of these quirks.  And lastly, Dave has some general advice for listeners who are planning to upgrade their home and retain their old home as an investment.  .... and our Gold Nuggets!  Dave Johnston's gold nugget: "If you're getting strategic mortgage advice, make notes." The retention rate of detailed information isn't often compromised, and it's important for borrowers to be clear on their mortgage strategy and set up. Mike Mortlock's gold nugget: Number one rule - investment debt is what you want to maximise, and home loan debt should be minimised.  Cate Bakos's gold nugget: Not being afraid of good debt is important. But being aware of the worst kind of debt is also very important too. Unsecured, expensive and short-amortised debt can be problematic. "I highly recommend you talk to a strategic mortgage advisor if you have that kind of debt."  Show notes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/03/25/mortgage-masterclass/

  • #249: February market update - One percent national vacancy rates?!

    18 MAR. 2024 · Got a question for the trio? https://forms.zohopublic.com/propertyplanningaustralia/form/GotaquestionforthePropertyTrio/formperma/zYCQAxzE_24CVlDafP1ozyzwtmB-8m1iCNtCTgDvHXM The February 2024 data is out, and the Trio circle the headline; the ridiculously tight vacancy rates nationally. Mike compares houses and unit performance and ponders the drivers for unit purchasers. Dave delves into Perth's outperformance and notes the predictions he and Pete made eighteen months' prior. Is buyer confidence up? Cate sheds light on her own experience at the coalface. But how does data lag impact the figures, and will Cate's prediction match the March data? Only time will tell...  What is happening with the regions? For the quarter, combined regions have outperformed the combined cities, but why? The Trio unpack this. Mike dares to broach the question... "Where is Melbourne at?" The Novocastrian dares to challenge the proud Melburnians with this question, but they rise to the challenge and shed light on what is going on in their home city with investors.  And have the regions suffered to the detriment of Melbourne's recovery? Not at all, but Cate explains the dynamics post-COVID. Cate also shares the value-proposition of houses in nearby regions versus apartments in Melbourne's inner-east.  Vacancy rates are so tough on tenants right now and the Trio note that vacancies have tightened even further. From changed planning laws to talk of investor incentives, the jungle drums are beating. But sadly the Trio concur that conditions will continue to deteriorate until governments make a different kind of change.  Listing activity is higher, yet sales volumes reflect that buyer demand is meeting supply and this coming weekend is set to be a stand-out weekend for auction numbers. But what will post Easter, and early winter look like? "We only need to talk about rate decreases and people go crazy" Rental values have re-accelerated in 2024. Feb recorded the highest rental reading for the last eleven months. Will rent growth outpace capital growth? The Trio weigh in... and they don't all agree.  The three year bonds curve shows that the money markets are predicting three rate reductions as an average cash rate.  And... time for our gold nuggets... Cate Bakos's gold nugget: For any prospective tenants out there, you have to be prepared to differentiate yourself in this tight vacancy rate environment. Dave Johnston's gold nugget: This month suggests that so many data points are pointing towards a property price rebound this year, so if you are considering buying property, it's time to get your ducks in a row. Narrow in on your strategy, arrange your pre-approval and be clear on the plan.  Shownotes: https://www.propertytrio.com.au/2024/03/18/ep-249-february-market-update/
