Are you considering buying a new home or an investment property?

If so you’re probably wondering should you buy now or should you wait?

What if prices fall further this year?

A better question would be - how important is it to get your timing right and what are the most important factors involved in the long-term performance of your investment property?

With my guest today, Stuart Wemyss we’re going to uncover what really makes the big difference in a property’s long-term performance.

Some of the ideas we discuss in this episode:

  • Why Stuart decided to study the factors that affected property investment performance
  • Which variables Stuart looked at and which variables were most important
  • What  would happen to your property’s performance if negative gearing or capital gains tax change
  • The importance of choosing the right property
  • How Stuart’s research fits in with some golden rules in his book Investopoly


  • Play the long game
  • Grow your asset base first and then tilt toward income
  • Set your asset allocation to reduce risk and maximise returns
  • Only invest in ‘investment-grade’ property
