THE PROPERTY NERDS: Busting the biggest property and finance myths

By Robyn Tongol 10 September 2021 | 1 minute read

On the latest episode of The Property Nerds podcast, self-proclaimed data nerds Arjun Paliwal and Leigh Paliwal deep-dive into property data and unpack what the biggest trends in Australia’s housing markets mean for investors.

Arjun, head of research at InvestorKit, and Leigh, director of Hills Finance, discuss popular property and finance “myths” and whether they actually affect one’s journey into real estate investment or not. Can population growth translate to capital growth? Is that really the max cap of your borrowing capacity or can you get more? Should you always go for the “best rate”?

The nerds also talk through the difference between buying new and old properties, the value of understanding (and being critical of) historical trends, and the importance of smart financial strategies and a good team of professionals in today’s ever-changing landscape.
