019: Investment Strategies and Market Trends in Australia

Download Podcast

I welcome Salena Kulkarni to today’s podcast. Salena is a former accountant who pivoted into real estate. She is a certified property advisor who founded the Phoenix Wealth Group. Salena discusses her experience with the Australian real estate market and compares it to the U.S. market.

We also discuss investment strategies and the current market trends Australian investors are following right now. Australia is a conservative market, so Salena’s insight falls into the “get rich slow” mentality.

It is always interesting to hear about global markets and Salena has some great advice to offer.
