  • What is the Price Predictor Index Report

    · 00:12:40 · Hotspotting (Property)

    In this episode, Terry & Drew discuss the information that is used when creating the popular Hotspotting reports - specifically the Price Predictor Report. These Australian real estate reports are quite unique in that the whole focus is not on what's happening with prices, it’s on what's happening with sales volumes.  The reason for this is because Terry believes that sales activities are a much better indicator of where markets are heading than price statistics are. The index analyses sales in every Australian suburb or town. It finds the growth patterns - the places that will soon show price growth. It also finds markets that are going backwards – the ones to avoid. All this is analysed and presented in a report that covers the key markets in every state and territory.

  • What is Hotspotting?

    · 00:05:45 · Hotspotting (Property)

    ‘Hotspots’ is actually a term that’s been used, abused and misused a lot in all sort of spheres of activity, but in the up-terms a hotspot is a place that’s going to out- perform the general marketing in terms of capital growth. Welcome to the Hotpotting podcast hosted by Terry Ryder of Hotspotting.com.au and Drew Grosskreutz of Otium Group. Through the podcast, Terry & Drew will give advice, tools, data, strategies and support for home buyers and property investors within Australia. Terry Ryder has been writing about real estate for a long time and the one thing that home owners and property investors alike want to know about is ‘what’s the best place to buy?’. He’s concerned about the serious issue where people who only hear media sound bytes and read headlines are being mis-informed about real estate….and making big financial decision based on this mis-information.
