YBR launches e-book for investors

by Julia Corderoy21 Jan 2016
Yellow Brick Road (YBR) has announced the launch of a new e-book for Australian property investors. 

The book, titled The Morello Matrix, is authored by property expert and YBR’s head of business management Andrew Morello and promises to help investors navigate the rapidly changing investment market in 2016.

According to Morello, a slowing market and tougher regulation means investors are going to be doing it tougher in the year ahead, however, he says there are still many opportunities to get on the investment ladder and be successful.

“Rents are on the decline, interest rates are going up and restrictions on investment lending will make it more difficult for some to secure funding. However, in a recent survey Yellow Brick Road conducted of the nation’s hopes and dreams, we found that property investment is still one of the top Australian dreams,” he said.

“Changes in the investment lending space have been made to protect and stabilise the lending environment. Initially there was some panic about what it would mean for investors but I believe there are still many opportunities to get finance and achieve your goals.”

The 29-year-old has been involved in more than 1,000 property transactions both nationally and internationally and owns a large portfolio of investment properties in Sydney and Melbourne. He says The Morello Matrix will equip Australians with the essentials on converting cash into assets in a constantly evolving market.

“Property investment strategies are not a secret. Thousands of Australians build their wealth this way. But many more Australians stand on the sidelines and choose not to play. This is a pity, as Australia has a really good lending system for property. 

“Our vibrant property market generally doubles every 10 years, particularly in metro areas, and we have a culture of hard work and solid income from employment. These things make property a great way to build wealth.”

The Morello Matrix will be available from 21 January 2016.
