UPI 80: Megatrends Investors Need to Know

Welcome to the final “best of” series for the Urban Property Investor. Today’s episode first featured as Episode 50 – How to Create Long Term Wealth. But I’ve had a think about it and it’s really about the megatrends that investors need to know, especially going in to 2022. 


Capital growth is soon going to be a niche in real estate and if you don’t follow some of the megatrends today, you are going to be behind in the future. COVID-19 promoted the most profound social and spatial change in living memory, so we are going to talk about those directions in this episode. In 2022 and beyond, we are not going to be investing in the property market anymore, we will be investing in the livability market. So on this episode I discuss what that means for the future of wealth creation through real estate. 


I also discuss –

6:20 – COVID-19 is not the end of urbanization 

16:40 – How to measure the value of a city 

9:35 – 6 subgroups of mission-fit real estate
