Busting some of the biggest property investing myths

By Sasha Karen 06 June 2019 | 1 minute read

The best thing a property investor can arm themselves with is knowledge, and in this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, some long-standing property myths are put under the spotlight to see if they stack up.

Simon Pressley

Propertyology’s head of research, Simon Pressley, joins host Phil Tarrant to tackle some well-established property myths to better arm investors with how to approach the property market.

Some of the myths Simon and Phil tackle in this episode include whether non-capital cities don’t grow in value, if the biggest driver of capital growth is population growth, and investing in areas that you yourself would also be happy to live in.

After busting some myths, Simon also shares what he believes property investors should be paying attention to when considering somewhere to invest and discusses recent movements impacting the property market, such as the federal election and proposals by APRA.
