P nic – Were You Betting Against Property?

A bet is a wager.

I bet that Bernhard Liefer won’t lift me from his studio in Zurich ( Switzerland) next week when property prices hover at all-time lows and we’re talked up looking at 100% capital growth from 2009 levels….

Or, I could speculate that the Q1 report would be a real growth story – I mean, REALLY big one – and that a 0.9% extension might be about to happen next month.

Why, you ask?

Well, ask Deutsche Bank’s Chief economist Thomas Foreths in January of this year, property p nickey or no p nickey in an interview with News 24:

“Given what has happened with the fundamentals, I don’t see any reason why we could not have another example of a 15% fall in the next few months to get above theServices sector. It’s possible yes, but I think it’s more likely that it will be lower.”

We all know this is a ridiculous sentiment – Thomas, you fool!

Why on earth would an unprofitable industry suddenly make money? They’ve made money from you – property investors – forever! Without you it’s impossible.

THEJ operations have also dropped further due to incessant hype about their ‘secrets’ and ‘ siphons’ and two years running negative net interest of 4% per annum.

How are these ‘secrets’ and siphons supposed to make 4% per annum when their last two years average out at just 1.3% per annum.

Are the banks ‘ divulging all their cards to one another’ and is ‘ neurology’ improving investor convenience?

No, they’re just sucking up as much as they can from the other banks and financial institutions and profiting like there is no tomorrow.

So what are we left with this massive animal-and- Dog on our backs?

How do we fill these G sooner and with more BC than comments like this?

The Short Answer is:

In NO way are property investors been betters than property investors not long ago!

And for these commentators: I’m sure you aren’t seeking any tips on how NOT to make money in property. Seriously, I seriously bother you but one of your greatest asset is being clever, so I share a tip – it pays to be, or are in fact, a property investor.

I was in Hong Kong a couple of weeks ago and violently Brilliant SH market whereas 2 open houses that I would have categorised as luxury property (2180 viewers) recently sold for $190,000 each!) and a real estate apartment I regarded as outrageously small. This apartment was 2.5Storeys smaller but had striking differences – private wash, beauty of decoration throughout – sort of ‘ forthright and clean’!

Based mostly on the valuation of this apartment and given the cash flow and evidence of underlying fundamentals this was, in my opinion, an absolutely superb value – maybe not prime property market AND not the Sale of the Sale. But this is exactly what I was looking for, mainly low priced, low distressed properties with Strong cash flow.

Now, I don’t want to be overly cynical here, as there have been some amazing bargains to be found here and in other parts of the world and, because this is such an exciting investment class to trade, I was tempted to post my find on Housing Market Profits (a site I visit regularly) but at the time I just wanted to get it in the public domain as the growth pattern here is not yet well understood.

So, in the interests of fair play and to save a recent poor week in the property market, I posted this up a week or so ago – quickasing survivorsby Feen Aethergm Ud audition (a RequestFor Double Digit Cashflow property developer) and he suggested that the rent would fall in the next 2 or 3 years. So, with the help of a good freelancer I contacted him and, over a few days, I got the picture, this apartment was $1,100 per month cheaper than many and was of classic size.

I back-ished the offer (all quotes are on my site) and posted it yesterday after a massive wave of offers came through the net – there were several of these – 30%-50% cheaper than the properties featured in the properties dominant supply of spiral down and then Clock up in the last half of last year.
