The most successful property investors look beyond the rear-view mirror of past performance, and transport themselves into the future to see how an area, local economy and a property is going to look and change in 15+ years, and not be too distracted by how it looks today. 

More than imagination, there is a data-driven approach to this. So where do you get the right data, and how do you know what trends to focus on and what to ignore?

To help us do that, we’re joined by ‘The Stats Guy’ Simon Kuestenmacher who shares his insights on how you can joins the dots using the right data to predict and forecast property outcomes as you build and execute your strategy.
