Mortgage broker Ross Le Quesne joins us this week as we look at the news and what it means for investors. APRA's changes are already having an impact on the market with investors in off-the-plan units starting to be negatively affected. There's already evidence of property investors walking away from their deposits!

What can you do if you're in a similar position? Are all these properties going to flood the market and depress prices? We talk it through.

The banks have just announced a raft of rate rises and again there's no escape for property investors. But what do you do when the inevitable happens? We talk about the different approaches we've tried.

And finally it's new hotspots ahoy! Or is it? We chat over the latest round of crystal ball gazing and see if there's any merit in these recent pronouncements.
