Almost 50 years ago I began my study of rich and successful people. Of course, not all rich people are successful. But I remember trying to understand why some people were rich while others kept struggling financially. Over the years I attended many seminars, paid mentors, and read as many books as I could on the topic of success. I modeled success…
 
I recently read an article in the Australian by leading demographer Bernard Salt that made me think. He posed an interesting question. He said, “imagine taking an Australian couple from the 1950s and placing them in our society today. What would surprise them most?” Would it be the internet or mobile phones or our general level of prosperity? Maybe…
 
There are a lot of great things about being an adult, such as setting our own bedtimes and owning the pet of our choice. But perhaps most importantly, with age comes the wisdom and perspective we only wish we had when we were younger. So if you had the opportunity to go back in time, what would you have liked to tell your younger self? That’s what …
 
We’re at the beginning of a new economic cycle, a new property cycle, and a new business cycle - a time when lifetime wealth will be created by some people, but unfortunately not by most. I was recently asked by somebody in my mentorship program how to make the rest of their life the best of their life – how to make the second half of their life mu…
 
I took some time last weekend to look at some articles and commentary that came out about a year ago when the GVC (Great Virus Crisis) was just beginning. The media was full of negative commentary but in my regular podcasts my guests and I gave a much more measured commentary using our perspective gained from many years in the market, and as a resu…
 
Why are you investing in property? Or why do you want to get involved in property investment? It’s not really for the properties, is it? For some people, it’s because they want to fund their retirement, while for others it’s that they want more choices in life – they don’t particularly want to retire, but they want to work when and how they want to…
 
If you want to take advantage of our property markets and become financially independent, today’s show is for you, because I’ve got 3 segments during which I share a number of concepts that will help you along the way. First, we discuss whether property investing is an art or a science. Spoiler alert: it’s both. But you still need to listen to the …
 
With the property markets surging around Australia, people are starting to ask is this more than a just a property boom? Are we about to enter a property bubble? That’s what I’m going to discuss today with property researcher John Lindeman, and we’ll explain the difference between a boom in the bubble in what we believe is ahead for a property mark…
 
Who do you ask for property advice? With so many mixed messages and so many people out there with property advice, who can you trust? Today I’m going to teach you the ten-meter rule, and suggest you never break the ten-meter rule when getting property advice. The rule will also stand you in good stead in other situations where people are willing to…
 
One of the most significant changes in the time I’ve been investing in property, and that’s close to five decades now, is the availability of data. When I first started investing in the 1970s there weren’t any blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels and the only way to get property data was to be part of the secret inner circle – which was then a men’s c…
 
Just like 2020 was the year of surprises many of us didn’t foresee, I believe 2021 will offer its own surprises – but this time, on the upside. There is a perfect storm of economic outcomes and that’s what I’m going to be chatting about with Pete Wargent in today’s show as we have a look at the macroeconomic big picture that will affect our propert…
 
As we move into a new property cycle, a whole new generation of people are going to become financially independent through property. So, today’s show is going to be dedicated to helping you become one of those. I’ve got two segments for you today. The first segment is a chat with Brett Warrant about 10 questions you should ask yourself when you’re …
 
There is no doubt that our property markets are in a broad-based boom, with almost all segments, other than the inner-city apartment market showing strong property price growth. And the media is having a field day whipping up a frenzy of emotions with headlines causing some buyers to worry that the housing market is running away from them. In fact,…
 
Have you considered getting involved in property renovations? If so, then today’s show is just for you. Making a tidy profit renovating a property seems like an attractive proposition, doesn’t it? And that’s why more real estate investors are turning to renovations: you know, buy low, renovate cheaply, add substantial value. That’s the aim of their…
 
As we move through 2021, we’re still getting regular reminders that even though life is more normal, the effects of Coronavirus will be with us for a long time. While some people are still looking back in the rear vision mirror to see what lessons we can learn to give us some guidance for the year ahead, today I’ll be looking forward into the futur…
 
Success is no accident. The most successful people in life – whether in business, family life, music, or on the sports field – may not always seem like they have much in common. How are The Beatles similar to Steve Jobs? Or Warren Buffett and Shane Warne? But when their traits, habits and work ethics are distilled down, these unlikely characters sh…
 
Property values can’t keep rising! It’s all a Ponzi scheme and is going to come crashing down around us! The only reason our property markets have survived COVID-19 is because of bank and government support. That’s some of the commentary you’ll find in the media and over the Internet at present and on the other hand you’ll find many experienced pro…
 
Have you ever wondered how certain people become so rich and successful? Well, if you’ve been listening to my podcast or reading my blogs and my books, you’d know that rich people don’t become rich by luck or by accident. Becoming rich requires hard work, dedication, and a certain set of habits. We are what we repeatedly do. That means excellence i…
 
Navigating the world of personal finance can be overwhelming, even for an adult who has quite a bit of experience in the working world.

And that’s what I discuss in …
 
How do you evaluate the investment potential of a particular property? Well, that’s what I’m going to share with you today as we I share 5 metrics that we use at Metropole when discussing the investment potential of properties that we’re considering showing to our clients. But I’m also going to share 1 metric that you probably think is important, b…
 
No one expects 2021 to be the same type of rollercoaster ride as 2020. And while there’s plenty of good news for our economy and our property markets, it’s important to remember that considerable uncertainty remains and the extreme dislocation to many businesses over the past year will take time to resolve. Now the general optimism is well-founded.…
 
Would you like to know where the property hotspots are going to be as Australia enters some semblance of normality in 2021? Or maybe you’d like to know exactly where property values are going to end up at the end of this year. Now I know that’s what a lot of the other podcasts are currently offering you, so I’m sorry if I’m going to disappoint you,…
 
As we enter a new year, many of us will be focusing on the strange year we've had and trying to extract the lessons we've learned. Rather than do the same, in today’s episode of the Michael Yardney Podcast I’d like to remind you of some of the foundations of lifetime investment success with Stuart Wemyss. Now to be clear… this is very different to …
 
What’s ahead for our property markets this year? Is it time to be fearful or time to be greedy? We survived 2020, and 2021 is going to be another interesting year with a lot of positive things happening, but there’s no doubt will have our share of challenging times, because even though we are over the recession there it will still be fallout from t…
 
While many markets suffered from the economic impact of COVID-19, Brisbane’s property values remained resilient last year, and now almost all property analysts are suggesting that Brisbane’s housing markets will perform strongly in 2021.

With interest rates near zero, Australia’s economy rebounding, and pumped with massive amounts of stimulus, and the coronavirus all but eradicated from our shores, our property markets are looking healthy and starting the year off on a strong footing. The stats show that after the nation went into lockdown last year, national property rates fell ov…
 
Would you like Life Time Wealth? Well…today we’ll explain what that means and how you could achieve it as I replay a chat I had with my good friends Louise Bedford and Chris Tate from The Trading Game and we discuss the concept of true wealth. This is the last of the summer series of podcasts where I’ve been running three shows a week rather than t…
 
During his five years studying the rich and the poor Tom Corley identified 10 hard truths about the wealth gap that no politician or member of the mainstream media would dare reveal. And as I share them with you today, you’ll probably get a few surprises. These aren’t just our thoughts. In his 5year study, Tom asked 361 rich and poor people 144 que…
 
How wealthy are you? I guess that depends upon how you define wealth. In today’s podcast, I chat with demographer and social commentator Mark McCrindle about wealth distribution in Australia. We talk about what’s happened to the wealth gap between the rich and the average Australian, and we answer the question “are we better off financially than ou…
 
I’m often asked what are the big lessons I’ve learned from investing in property for close to 50 years? Probably the most important lesson I think we can learn is that the market is driven not only by the fundamentals but also by the irrational and erratic behavior of an unstable crowd of other investors and homebuyers. So never get too carried awa…
 
Not all investors are created equal. If you want to become a successful property investor you really need to understand the five levels of investing which is a model that I’ve designed to explain how most investors progress along their path to financial freedom. Just to be clear, this has nothing to do with your level of income. It has a lot to do …
 
We’re into a new year, and there’s lots of good news on the horizon. We’re going to have a better year this year than in 2020. We can’t have all of those challenges again this year, can we? There’s lots of good news. The economy is picking up, we’ve beaten the recession, it looks like we’ve contained the virus, and there’s an earlier-than-expected …

Today, I’m going to share with you one of the biggest mistakes I made early on in my investment career indisputable pro…
 
While you’re listening to this podcast, my wife and I are away on our vacation. Unfortunately due to Covid, it’s not the extended overseas trip we usually take at this time of the year, but we are able to take a number of breaks each year because we’ve built a substantial property portfolio that gives us the lifestyle we enjoy. I’m not showing off.…
 
Did you make New Year’s resolutions for 2021? What were they? Were you planning to get more money? Become healthier? How many have you broken already? My resolution of eating more healthily didn’t last long. But I know that a lot of people are planning to make 2021 a great year considering the challenges and how many opportunities were lost in 2020…
 
Success is no accident. The most successful people in life may not always seem like they have much in common. How are The Beatles similar to Steve Jobs? Or Warren Buffett and Shane Warne? But when their traits, habits, and work ethics are distilled down, these unlikely characters share many similarities. They do the work, they turn up, they believe…
 
There are many definitions of what it means to be rich. In today’s podcast, we’re going to discuss the #1 factor that makes poor people rich. Being rich is more a state of mind than a dollar amount, though – the rich can be poor and the poor can be rich. Being rich is really more about having what you want and being able to enjoy your wealth. You n…
 
2020 didn’t exactly turn out the way I or anyone expected at the beginning of the year. Just as the bushfires were receding, we started to learn about this virus in China that eventually made its way to our shores.

For many of us, 2020 has been a year to forget, but I don’t think we’re going to do that easily. I’m confident that we’re going to remember 2020 for a long time. I don’t know when you’re going to listen to this podcast, but it’s almost certainly time for me to wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2021 – a much better year ahead. 2020 brought a…
 
You’re in for a treat today because I’m going to chat with one of my very early mentors when I started my property investment journey. I bought my first investment property in 1971 without much money, having saved a little deposit and going halves with my parents and I definitely didn’t understand the rules of the game. I just knew that wealthy peo…
 
Today’s podcast is a little different: it’s all about me. This is an interview with me. I hope it will help give you some insights about what makes me tick, what I’ve learned, what I’ve done wrong.

One of the interesting benefits I experienced from the prolonged lockdowns during 2020 was that I’ve been working more efficiently. Prior to COVID-19, I worked from home one or two days a week and from the office the other days. But interestingly, working from home full time made me much more efficient with my use of time. So, how do you make the m…
 
It’s clear that we’ve worked our way through the COVID-induced recession and the resultant lull in our property markets has now turned the corner and the markets are on the move again.

These are costs that investors and homebuyers ha…
 
The way we live in Australia has changed. We’ve traded backyards for balconies and courtyards and this has resulted in around one in five Australians living in apartments today. That’s up from one in seven in the 1990s. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, of the ten million or so dwellings in Australia, around 10% of these are what th…

You invest your money to give yourself the highest likelihood of reaching your goals. But how do you know if your investment is actually helping you reach your goals?

It looks like we worked our way through the recession, and slowly but surely, the coronavirus pandemic is coming under control. That means that the recession that we had was very different from previous recessions. But what does our recovery look like? That’s what I’m going to talk about today with Pete Wargent. We’ll discuss what’s ahead for our e…
 
There are signs that the modest coronavirus-induced housing correction has come to an end. Nobody’s going to ring a bell telling us the market’s bottomed, but I’m sure when we look back in 12 months’ time, we’re going to find that the value of some properties has increased significantly and our property markets turned the corner in October 2020. Bu…
