In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, real-life investor Julian Lancey reveals the strategies he uses to keep his portfolio costs down, why he’s buying 17 sqm studios and what he’ll do if it all goes belly-up.  

Julian Lancey is living life on the edge, his ability to service his portfolio under threat with each rate rise. In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show he reveals to @philliptarrant and Sterling Publishing’s Head of Wealth, Russell Stephenson, the strategies he uses to keep costs down, and what he’ll do if it all goes belly-up.

Julian is an everyday investor who chooses to self-manage, and furnish, his five-property portfolio. You’ll hear why he’s chosen to take this path, and the handyman skills he’s picked up along the way. Julian also reveals why he’s investing in a tiny 17 square metre studio – and killing it as a result.

But it’s not all been smooth sailing. He’s pushed his servicing capacity to the max, and there’s the looming issues of land tax, future rate increases, increasing talk of changes to negative gearing. How does Julian plan to cope with any future shocks to his portfolio?

All this and much more in this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show.
