Gather 'round, aspiring property investors; this is a must-listen-to episode.

Last week, we discussed some top tips for first home buyers and started the conversation around property investment from an owner-occupier's perspective. If you missed it, go back and start there!

In part two of our property series with Michael Yardney, we are diving into some of the common mistakes that beginner property investors make. These insights will help you learn how to research, budget and plan your investment strategy with the long term in mind. We cover everything from the macroeconomic trends to property development, plus the dirty details about things like land tax, landlord insurance and property management.

Michael Yardney is one of Australia's leading property commentators and host of the popular Michael Yardney Podcast.
