UPI 49: My Economics Cheat Sheet for Property Investors

You don’t need to be an economist to know that the ingredients of an economy are profoundly linked to the success of your real estate investment. In this episode, I discuss the state of the Australian economy and what that means for property investors today. If you are a property investor in Australia, and you are wondering if you should look at investments outside of Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane and if you want to be more informed about the current housing market, then this episode is going to be really helpful for you. We talk about the economics and culture of many major cities in Australia and some of the dark horse areas that you might want to keep your eye on, like Tasmania.
