Are you on a mission to buy property? Or maybe you’re dreaming about breaking out of the rental rut and finding a little (or not so little) piece of Australia to call your own?

Well, now there’s a podcast for that.

Whether you’re actively searching for your version of The Great Australian Dream, whether you’re fantasising about it, whether you own property already and are trying to get the mortgage monster off your back, or whether you simply enjoy a good ol’ chat about the real estate market like any Australian worth their weight in avocados… put this in your ears and turn up the volume.

All the classic real estate characters and experts are here – the young first home buyer, the struggling Sydney property searchers, the mortgage guru, the buyers agent, and the serial property investor. And you can soak it all up without having to do so much as open your eyes.

Tell your partner. Tell your real estate obsessed friends. Tell your colleagues, your barista, your Uber driver and your Tinder date. Because after all the affordability hoopla, it’s time Australians got some real talk on real estate.

We’ll include the show notes for each episode here.

Buyer’s agents

In this episode, we speak to Sydney Buyer’s Agent Michael Pickham, from Propertunity. If you’d like to contact Michael about engaging him as a buyers agent, you can contact him by emailing or through his LinkedIn page.

And if you’re still tossing up whether a buyers agent is right for you, you might be interested in this AFR article. Buyer’s agents: Are they worth the money?

We’ve also penned our own piece on why property hunters use a buyer’s agent.

Regional areas

We also touched on Australia’s next big country boom towns. You can read more on this over on Australia’s next big country boom towns.

A few stats just to whet your appetite in the meantime: - The median house price for Ballarat in Victoria is $329,000 – around half that of Melbourne

  • The median house price for Orange in NSW is $380,000
  • Located nearly 1000km north of Brisbane, tropical Mackay’s economy is driven by sugar and mining. Over the past 12 months, prices have risen by 10% and the median price is $330,000
  • Launceston in Tasmania is also on the move. Prices have increased by 18.9% over the past 12 months and buyer demand is up an incredible 37.1%. The median price is $315,000.

Episode 3: Property War Stories: The good, the bad and the still-in-progress.

Episode 4: Show me the money! How to pay for your property party.

So, you’re pretty sold on this whole property buying thing. Have you worked out how you’re going to pay for it yet? There are so many different lenders, product features, special offers and just good old-fashioned maths hacks you can use to finance your property purchase in a way that’s going to get you into the property you want, and pay the thing off faster. (Because who wants a mortgage for a moment longer than necessary?)

If you’re ready to get your property finances sorted, you need to put this episode in your ears. Suzy and Sam talk to UNO founder Vincent Turner about the things most people don’t know about the home loan sector.. things your hip pocket might benefit from hugely if you know how to beat the system.

We also talk to Lynne, a many-time property investor; and auctioneer Kate Lumby for tips on how to win the auction battle.

What a fantastic experience using UNO Home Loans. Mike Parsons and the team were exceptional. Such an easy, hassle free experience, cannot recommend them highly enough. Mike Parsons was in touch every step of the way, and with him doing all the leg work, the transition to a refinanced home loan was a very easy one. Thank you!

You won’t find any broker better than Anita at UNO. We’ve told all our friends and family about her and will be using her for all our mortgages in the future! A stress free process from the start. She listened to our needs and was always available.

We are truly grateful for uno home loans and our broker Karis Churchill. This is our second time purchasing a home with the help from Uno and both times have been a very positive experience. Our recent purchase had many obstacles due to different factors however it was our dream home and we were up for the challenge. Our broker Karis was a true support and went above and beyond. She communicated so well with our solicitor and the real estate agents. She kept us updated through every step and kept us motivated when things seemed impossible. Uno is very fortunate to have Karis as a broker and we would highly recommend her to anyone. Our family are so happy we are now in our new forever home. Thank you so much Karis and to the uno team!!!
