Show Notes

Live the lifestyle or indulge in the investment? Often we find that there are blurred lines when it comes to investing in property when personal considerations come to the fore - requiring both financial and non-financial considerations. 


In this episode, the team detail the key factors and questions we should be asking ourselves. They’ll provide clarity in helping you to define both what you’re looking for and how to achieve it. The conversation also extends to factoring in where we want to live, and how it may fit in to our lifestyle needs, proximity to attractions and the overall feel of the suburb we live in. 

As with every episode, Dave and Cate will give you insightful and actionable advice on their take regarding the ‘lifestyle’ factor when it comes to buying your own home, a holiday home or an investment property.
