Some of our favourite quotes from the show:
“I love the old saying that a rising tide lifts all ships and that’s what happened in a lot of our property markets, especially the booming markets of Melbourne and Sydney, and then once the tide goes out, you can see who’s swimming naked.” Michael Yardney
“Human nature is to think that when things are going great they will always continue to do so, but of course there comes a point when valuations are too stretched and that’s arguably what we’ll see over the next year or two.” Pete Wargent
“I’d rather you own one or two good investment grade properties, rather than a bunch of secondary properties, because the stability of the good properties is going to give you the peace of mind and the ability to sleep at night rather than the volatility of the less sound residential real estate assets.” Michael Yardney
