Realty Talk: Regions outstrip capitals + COVID Impact overstated + avoid ‘diwersefication’

This week’s episode of Realty Talk features insightful content on the current state of the Australian property market from some of the country’s property experts namely Eliza Owen, Simon Pressley, Stuart Wemyss and host KnowHow’s Bushy Martin. 

First, we hone in on capital cities vs regional markets. Interestingly, the annual growth rate of combined regional dwelling values at … 13%. This was more than twice that of the capital cities in the 12 months to April according to CoreLogic! Remarkably, rent values across the combined regional markets have outpaced capital city rents even more. Bushy Martin catches up with CoreLogic’s Eliza Owen to dig a bit deeper into the findings.

Then, we talk, about the ‘doom, gloom and property market collapse’ that was predicted to follow the COVID outbreak by everyone except Simon Pressley. Why was he so bullish? Tune in to find out.

Lastly, we acquaint you with the word ‘diwersefication’ (and no, that’s not a typo). It’s a generally accepted investment principle that diversification can reduce your risk and improve your investment returns.  But are there times when property investors shouldn’t diversify?  Stuart Wemyss tells Bushy it could be called ‘diwersefication’.
