Linz’s Musings – The Selling Season is here…

After a beautiful weekend, weatherwise here in Melbourne, the first week of May now descends into a taste of winter for us. And while we are finding it getting cooler, particularly in the southern states, the U.S. is starting to heat up! With their economy soaring a massive 6.4% and the hot selling season of […]

Linz’s Musings – Don’t fall victim to FOMO

As we close the chapter on another month, we start our slow decent into Winter here in Oz. There is certainly on sign of the real estate markets cooling though, in fact, particularly in the U.S. its heating up even more… I put up a post on socials yesterday, I thought was quite funny (if […]

Making U.S. Investing Profitable

My foray into U.S. property commenced almost 9 years ago now. We had been investors in the Australian market for some time, and, like most investors, the Australian market felt safe… Strong growth, and it was a market I was familiar with.

He likely came to this conclusion through purposeful and intentional […]

Linz’s Musings – What are you waiting for?

One of the most common themes of questions I get asked, every week, via social media, emails, even during phone calls, is all about growth… Which areas have the best growth? What if the market does not grow? Is the U.S. or AU market better growth? Its like we are programmed to only look for […]

US Property Investment: Strike while the iron is hot

Let’s be honest: the stakes are too high for any real estate investor looking to enter the Australian property market. With the prices nowhere near affordable, you’re better off investing your money elsewhere. Like in the U.S. U.S. property investment has been the cheaper option for real estate investors for a long time, given the […]
