Is it boom or doom in 2016... and is ready access to finance assured in the year ahead?

By Staff Reporter
2016 property prices

In this week’s The Smart Property Investment Show, @philliptarrant is joined by regular guest and property investor Jim Hall plus mortgage industry veteran, broker and property investor Troy Phillips to get the low down on the market and upsides for finance-ready investors with funds to move quickly.

Troy says the market’s a tough one to read right now – from the real estate agents who say everything from Sydney to Hobart is going to boom in 2016, to the doom-and-gloom economists that predict it’s all about to fall apart. It’s also anyone’s call when it comes to rates, with little clear direction yet set by the RBA… however buyers that ready to move quickly can get good bargains. So act now, says Troy.

Troy also gives an insight into his investment portfolio and some of the key mistakes he’s made – delivering his lessons on what buyers are doing wrong – and right – in the current market, and the traps younger players can easily avoid.
