Episode 37: How to identify a quality property investment opportunity

In the stock market there is the Smart Money Index, a technical analysis indicator that shows investor tendencies; meaning each day there is a time the average day trader is active in the stock market, which helps well informed investors make their investing decisions later in the day. Is there a comparable measure in the property market? Short answer? No.

However, the property clock is the closest comparable tool that shows how the property cycle works, outlining peaks and bottoms. Seasoned property investors and wealthy individuals who buy lots of property tend to do most of their purchasing at the bottom of the market.

Listen in to hear where Australian capital cities sit on the property market clock, advice on using this tool to make property investment decisions, and the other factors to consider when choosing an investment property.
