I recently joined the gang over at The Elephant in the Room on their podcast. In this interview we covered a range of investment fundamentals, including:

  1. The danger of “hot-spotters” who forget to tell you when to exit.
  2. Why you don’t need to be an active investor or have lots of properties to be successful.
  3. The difference between a property flip and a flop.
  4. The cost of time when renovating.
  5. Renovation strategies: Repair, Rejuvenation, Refresh, Restructure and Revamp.
  6. The real cost of a dream lifestyle in retirement.
  7. The importance of cash-flow.
  8. Why borrowing capacity is going to get worse.
  9. The truth behind “that 60 Minutes story” and sensational journalism.
  10. How to narrow 8,000 suburbs down to 330 suburbs.
  11. Just because something is cheap, doesn’t mean it’s less risky.
  12. How bad decisions often compound.
