In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, host Russell Stephenson is joined by Katarina Taurian, who shares how her investment journey has been since her first property purchase in 2016.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2804) "

In light of the recent coverage surrounding the structural concerns of the Opal Tower in Sydney, Katarina shares why structural integrity was top of her list when purchasing her first property, even revealing that she would take a tool kit with her to property inspections.

Katrina explains what build quality means to her, the surprising belief that she regularly encountered when dealing with conveyancers and reveals where she sought the information that helped her to make an educated property purchase.

She also reveals her plans for her portfolio going forward, why even as a property owner she is glad that property prices are softening, and why she believes pricing rental in your investments shouldn’t necessarily meet what the market value suggests.

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Tim Neary, editor of Real Estate Business, to discuss how real estate has changed in the current market, and the lessons for investors looking to capitalise on the market by catering to what is making those agents “tick”.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2376) "

Tim explains the mistake that property investors are making when choosing an agent in the current market, how “prop-tech” is changing the real estate sector and why investors should be embracing technology as part of their investment journey.

They will also take a prospective look at how the market will likely change throughout 2019, and bust the myth that we are in a softening market.
