Whether you’re a first home buyer or property investor you want to seek out information and data to help you make informed decisions.
While the pillars of communication are still standing – newspapers, books and magazines – they’re not the only media available. Many savvy people are turning to social and digital media for info. But as the content is often the same, what is the advantage of using new media for research?
- Digital media can respond to news quicker, so you get the latest views, opinions and facts right now;
- It is available on demand, you can access it anywhere at any time;
- It’s often free;
- You can respond and read responses, adding a layer of ground-truth richness to the information;
- These media can be searched for keywords, helping you find what you’re looking for;
- Formats like podcasts can be listened to while on the way to work or while you do something else, so as to not eat into your already busy schedule.
So, what podcasts are out there for property investors and home buyers?
These may not be the top 5 property podcasts, but they are the ones I listen to – and they are in no particular order. If you’d like to share another, feel free to do it in the comments.
