With 13 years as CEO for the Real Estate Institute of NSW, Tim McKibbin has built a reputation as a knowledgeable name within the Australian property industry. In this episode of The Smart Property Investment Show, he reveals why investors need to stand up to initiate change within the sector.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2454) "

Tim explains his role within the REINSW and shares how a constantly changing industry impacts that role on a daily basis, and also shares his thoughts surrounding government and what he believes needs to be done to better service the property industry.

Tim also discusses his thoughts surrounding Fair Trading and the issues that he believes they present, why he refers to stamp duty as a “bad tax”, and why as an investor now is the best time to stand up evoke change and make your voice heard.

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.
