#27: The numbers matter!

When it comes to real estate investing, emotions run wild.

But… Numbers matter even more.

In my latest iLoveRealEstate podcast, I talk openly and candidly with a guy who deals with number-crunching all day long.

His name is Jason Andersen.

He is the guy that big-time developers like Mirvac, Australand and Lend Lease go to when they want research the viability of a big multi-million dollar project.

You might be thinking, “That’s great, but what has it got to do with me? I’m just a small time residential investor.”

Well, it’s quite simple.

The big boys are typically 2-3 years ahead in their investment horizons and any information that you can get that relates to growth markets, sociographics, demographics, infrastructure spending, population growth, etc, etc, etc. is likely to give you a head-start from the rest of the crowd.

With Jason, I talk about all things real estate. Not just here, locally… But globally as well.

If you want to find out how the European economic crisis is likely to effect Australia, we discuss that.

If you want to find out how the USA recovery is likely to effect the Australian market, we cover that.

If you want to find out what your capital city is likely to do from a capital growth point of view, yep, we cover that too.

Plus, a lot more other cool investment research ideas and opportunities.

Now, you must remember, Jason is an economist. He is quite dry in his delivery, but beneath the surface the information is priceless.

Just to hire him for an hour of his time would cost you $5,000.

I know, because I’ve paid that on several occasions over the last 5 years.

Yours Sincerely,

Dymphna Boholt
