    The Civil Division of VCAT handles disputes relating to domestic building works. I would have her start there. They may refer her to the Victorian Building Authority, which helps resolve disputes relating to domestic building contracts.

    Hi Pat. It sure seems like there’s never been a better time to sell, but that’s not to say next year won’t be even better. With interest rates so low, it’s really hard to say. It would be tough to let it go though with potential subdivision gains to be had. But I can also see why you’d be keen to move on.

    Happy to catch up for a chat if you want…[Read more]

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Think you have good insurance? Read This in the forum Heads Up! 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Thanks for the heads up. Another thing to watch out for is insurers’ deliberate attempts to minimise payouts. I was recently working with an investor who was told the damage by his tenant was not “malicious” even though it was clearly beyond normal wear and tear. Finally, after pushing and pushing and talking to three or four different people, he…[Read more]

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Poll: Where do you expect the RBA’s cash rate to be in 12 months? in the forum Opinionated! 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I expect the Fed to cut rates back to zero, which would put pressure on the RBA to continue cutting rates. But that could continue to fuel home price rises, so APRA will need to help out by preventing an excessive amount of new credit from flowing into housing. This would come in the form of capital controls of sorts on banks.

    Having personally coached hundreds of investors, I’ve seen firsthand the importance of educating yourself before buying an investment property. Find someone who has done it themselves and who is not trying to steer you toward a deal through the learning. Investing a few thousand dollars in your education on the front end can save you tens of…[Read more]

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Poll: Where do you expect the RBA’s cash rate to be in 12 months? in the forum Opinionated! 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I’ll go on record to predict 1.0 percent by the end of this financial year :)

    But not without some help from APRA…

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Thinking of getting involved in commercial property in the forum Commercial Property 4 months ago

    Great input here all around. I would only add that it’s best to first decide whether you are primarily an income investor or a growth investor. Commercial is great for income, but not so great as a growth asset. That said, I can understand why you’re looking elsewhere than Aussie residential property for generic growth.

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Can I Get Your Thoughts on This John Templeton Quote? in the forum General Property 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    Love your attitude Colin!

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Can I Get Your Thoughts on This John Templeton Quote? in the forum General Property 4 months, 4 weeks ago

    Agreed. But I don’t see your job getting any easier. They need to do something to stop the flow of all that new credit into real estate.

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Can I Get Your Thoughts on This John Templeton Quote? in the forum General Property 4 months, 4 weeks ago

    That said, I don’t think our regulators want real estate prices to go much higher.

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Can I Get Your Thoughts on This John Templeton Quote? in the forum General Property 4 months, 4 weeks ago

    Especially as central banks are suppressing interest rates. No telling how far this run with go. Still potentially 6 more RBA cuts. Then QE? I sure hope not, but anything is possible in this day.

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Can I Get Your Thoughts on This John Templeton Quote? in the forum General Property 4 months, 4 weeks ago

    That is a great one. Thanks Colin!

    What’s up Everyone?!

    I’m curious what your opinion is on the various property markets across Australia, so I wanted to throw out a few questions in light of this John Templeton quote I came across. Would you take a moment to respond?

    1. Do you think Templeton’s quote should be applied to the Australian property market in general? Why or why…[Read more]

    Good luck. I don’t think they can afford it. Gotta keep their share prices up while also meeting soon-to-come tighter capital requirements.

  • Jason Staggers replied to the topic Poll: How have Brexit uncertainties impacted your allocation of investment capital? in the forum Opinionated! 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    Good question.

    I remember Steve writing “Property Investing” on a white board in 2007 and asking, “Which of these two words is more important to you?” His point was that we are “investors” first and “property” may or may not be the best asset to hold.

    Eventually there will be a tipping point where people are no longer willing to take such…[Read more]
