I recently appeared on the Property Geek podcast to discuss my research on the 18 year cycle and the real estate outlook for the UK.

Property Geek is run by Rob Dix – I came to Rob’s attention when he read the article I wrote in MoneyWeek last year on the 18 year cycle. (You can find a copy of the article here). Rob has produced some excellent material to assist people to take the plunge into the world of property investing. So he was pretty pleased to come across an article which set out how the cycle works and how you can use it to forecast, years in advance, when the market is going to peak, fall and recover.

He asked me excellent questions about the cycle which made for a good interview (even if I do say so myself!).

During our discussion we talked about the 18 year cycle and why it continues to operate; where we are in it currently and what the outlook is for London and the UK over the next decade. We also discussed some ideas on how you can use the knowledge of the cycle to improve your investment decision-making.
