Episode 67 – Residential or commercial property with Tim Farrelly

Episode 67 – Residential or commercial property with Tim Farrelly

Residential or commercial property

The property market can be confusing. Buy an apartment or house? A shop or an office space? Residential or commercial? That’s a question my guest Tim Farrelly will answer today. Tim is the Principal of Farrelly’s Investment Strategy, an investment consulting company. He joins me to share his thoughts on the current state of the Australian market and how it has dramatically affected the property sector. I ask him whether now is a good time to buy for both owner occupiers and investors. Tim also describes the difference between residential and commercial property markets.

Don’t miss this week’s segment of Reuben’s Rant where I discuss the truth about the Federal Budget surplus claim and why we’re not “back in the black.”

“If the states have a big, sharp fall in revenue, the federal government has to make it up.”  – Tim Farrelly
