Home Building Costs show art Home Building Costs

Hotspotting

Want to know why housing affordability is so poor in this country?   The answer, in simple terms, is because the cost of building new houses is so high – ridiculously, obscenely high.   The cost of building the typical house in Australia has risen 53% in the past three years – and it now costs close to half a million dollars to build that home.   And that’s just the cost of the house. It doesn’t include the price of the land.   Who’s to blame for this situation?   Primarily, overwhelmingly, it’s government. Politicians and bureaucrats.   They keep...

Regional vs. City Growth show art Regional vs. City Growth

Hotspotting

We’re constantly asked at Hotspotting whether it’s better to invest in the regions or the capital cities – and whether you get higher capital growth in the outer-ring suburbs of our cities or the so-called prime inner-city locations. Now, there’s no definitive answer to questions like that, because there are so many different scenarios to consider – and, at the end of the day, it comes down to the performance of individual local markets and you simply cannot generalise. But, based on the evidence of where the highest capital growth has occurred in the past four years, I would have to...

Victorian Markets show art Victorian Markets

Hotspotting

The smart money in real estate buys in key markets BEFORE prices start to take off. The essence of smart investing is NOT buying in over-heated markets like Perth but targeting locations that have the credentials for long-term growth but are currently at a low point in the cycle. And right now, the location that meets those criteria better than most is Victoria, particularly Melbourne. Most property investors are herd animals, diving into markets when they read that prices have risen 15% or 20% in the past year – or 50% in the past three years. Buying in such a market means you are likely...

How To Multiply Your Wealth With Subdivision show art How To Multiply Your Wealth With Subdivision

Hotspotting

Many Australians grow their wealth through passive investment in real estate: buy a property, install a tenant and wait for growth. There’s a better, and faster, way – without high risk. More and more investors are using development strategies to accelerate the wealth-creation process, with small subdivisions one of the most accessible and successful. Wealth mentor Brad Cassidy of The Kaizen Way teaches these strategies to investors across Australia, with notable results. Recently, our Hotspotting founder Terry Ryder hosted Brad on a webinar to discuss how to profit from small...

Apartment Revolution in Real Estate show art Apartment Revolution in Real Estate

Hotspotting

At Hotspotting we’re always on the alert for evidence of CHANGE that will influence property markets. The great potential in residential real estate is that change is always happening, opening up new possibilities for growth. One of our catch-cries at Hotspotting is that THE PAST DOES NOT INFORM THE FUTURE. Poor performers of the recent past can become the nation’s leaders of the near future. One of the biggest trends we are tracking, under the general theme of change, is the rise and rise of apartments – challenging the dominant paradigm of real estate. That paradigm, still widely...

Media Negativity show art Media Negativity

Hotspotting

I’ve been in and around news media my whole adult life and I STILL haven’t got used to the way journalists these days can look at a set of numbers that are overwhelmingly positive but find the only negative – and make that their headline. Somehow, journalists have formed the view that we’re endlessly attracted to screaming negatives and don’t want to hear about anything UPLIFTING that’s happening in the world. Recently, one of the major real estate data firms published data on the property ownership rates for women and men in Australia. This was topical because there’s a lot of...

Australian Population Surge show art Australian Population Surge

Hotspotting

At a time when Australia is buckling under the weight of the dwelling shortage problem, population growth is occurring at record levels, mostly because we are bringing in migrants at unprecedented levels. The latest data from the ABS shows that the national population rose 2.5% last year. That means 660,000 added to the Australian population, lifting the total close to 27 million – which is a milestone achieved well ahead of the official government forecasts. This historically high level of population growth has been fuelled by new people arriving from overseas. Overseas migration, in fact,...

Ignored Rental Solutions show art Ignored Rental Solutions

Hotspotting

The politicians and talking heads of Australia are willing to consider or recommend ANYTHING as a solution to the rental shortage – anything EXCEPT the only thing that will work. And which, incidentally, would be really easy to implement and would have much faster outcomes than the many crackpot schemes that are being suggested. Every day mainstream media is full of articles about the rental crisis – with an emphasis on extreme situations, sensationalist headlines and the demonising of landlords as the arch-villains of the situation. There are also growing instances of “big idea”...
