Do REITs experience growth in a boom? PLUS: Will this help me avoid CGT?

Rob & Rob are back again this week to answer two more fantastic questions.

We’ve got a rather interesting first question from Brendan.

He’s got a question on the 18 year property cycle, one of our favourite topics to talk about.

Brendan wants to know if Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) are likely to experience the same sort of growth in a boom period as residential property?

If you’re not 100% sure on what a REIT is and how they work, don’t worry, Rob D covers that along with how they benefit property investors.

The second question on this week’s episode is from Antonio.

He’s got a portfolio of properties which he’s had for around 20 years and is now considering selling.

His accountant has advised him that if he moves back into the property for 6-12 months, he won’t have to pay capital gains tax on the sale as it will be seen as his main residence.

Is this a way of getting around capital gains tax?

Tune in to find out.
