Property auctions can be daunting. But did you know that there are things that can help you stack the odds in your favour and give yourself the best chance of succeeding?

Welcome to the Australian Property Investment Podcast. In each episode, we ask a guest expert to share their key insights for aspiring investors to make confident property choices.

Matthew also walks us through what happens during an auction day,  gives some insights on using a buyer’s agent to bid, and a whole lot more nitty-gritty about property auctions.
