Episode details

Our first FET podcast guest is Catherine Cashmore, an experienced property professional. Catherine’s insights are unique because not only does she have on-the-ground insights about property investing, she has a deep understanding of the theoretical and policy debates about housing and property that have happened since the days of Henry George in the late 19th century.

As well as dealing with this long history of property debates, we ask Catherine about what buyers often get wrong about property investment, whether there is a financial logic to renting instead of buying, and what might be next for Australia’s property market.

You can find out more about Catherine and her thoughts on property markets and policy at the following places.
