A Safer Bet Than The Nags

With the Melbourne Cup upon us I thought it would be fun to look at the famous Race 7 at Flemington.

By th numbers: 

  • On average Australians spend $350 million in betting on race day.
  • To date there have been 89 Melbourne Cup winners.
  • Saddle cloth numbers 4 and 12 are the most successful in the race’s long history. Each number has 11 Cup wins to its credit.
  • The most successful barrier in cup history is number 5 with eight wins.
  • The most successful silk colours are white and yellow each with 24 wins.
  • 4 year old horses have won 45 races.
  • By weight 53kg has won 9 races.


To get an edge requires expertise, skill, insight and luck!

Here at Wills Property we are constantly analysing the property market to assist our clients in picking a winner.

When looking for the right property we consider:

  • Location – proximity to amenities and suburb
  • Value –  what you get for the price
  • Market momentum – what is the local market doing is it going to get better
  • Quality – build quality and suburb performance
  • An X-factor – what is unique about the property that adds or can add value?
  • Time – Timing and time in the market


As an asset class real estate offers the average person the ability to get ahead.

The 2018 Russell Investments/ASX Long-term Investing Report showed that Australian residential property outperformed equities over both 10- and 20-year periods, at an average of 8% per annum.

Long term, we will have 40 million people in Australia, where are they all going to live?

Property looks like a safe bet to me.
