QE could dramatically change property prices…so why is no-one talking about it?

This week we’re exploring how QE could dramatically change property prices

QE (short for Quantitative Easing) is currently at record levels that have never been seen before.

The approach has discreetly been changed by the government, so as a property investor you must understand what’s going on.

And that’s exactly what Rob & Rob are discussing on today’s podcast episode.

By the end of this episode you’ll know exactly what QE is and how to take advantage of it.

Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode

We get it, QE sounds really boring and while it’s really complicated… it’s also incredibly important.

For us, it’s important that you understand QE just as much as you understand leverage or inflation, it’s a core concept to long-term property investing.

Here’s what Rob & Rob are be covering on today’s episode on QE:

  • What is QE?
  • Amounts of QE
  • The effects of QE (pre-2020)
  • Asset price inflation since 2009
  • Why is 2020 QE different?
  • What is the likely effect?
  • What can you do about it?

This is going to be an episode that may frazzle your brain a little so you might want to grab a pen and paper and take notes.

You may even want to listen to it a couple of times to wrap your head around it but we promise it will be worth your while.

In the news

A major news story in the property world this week comes from the BBC. ‘Cladding: Extra £3.5bn for unsafe buildings ‘too little, too late’.’

There’s another issue with the cladding scandal – and that’s the clarity around who it does (and doesn’t) help. And that’s because the government has stated that this funding is applicable to buildings over 18m high.

So if you live in a development below 18m, the funding won’t help you, but there will be low cost loans available.

We don’t think this is the end of this ongoing battle. We’ll be keeping an eye on further developments.

Hub extra

For Hub Extra this week The Robs are recommending a tool they’ve both been using since the first lockdown.

Rob B used to work on an iPad Pro because he travelled around a lot. But like most people, he’s been stuck at home and this meant the iPad wasn’t an ideal set-up.

So, he invested in a widescreen monitor.

So we’re keeping it simple and recommending the very basic widescreen monitor itself. It can increase your productivity when you’re used to working on a laptop or iPad – and as you know… we’re ALL about the increase in productivity.
