NZ Property Podcast EP 07 - Matthew Gilligan

Part One of a Massive Interview with Matt Gilligan

Mark spoke with Matt Gilligan of Gilligan Rowe & Associates this week. They spoke for so long and about such a wide range of topics that a single podcast would be too long for any commute, so we're splitting this interview into two.

In part one Matt speaks about:


  • The risk a developer takes on, no matter how good their timing and the deal seem to be.
  • Some examples of "interesting" situations he found himself in with large developments in the past.
  • The exposure developers and investors take on without proper structures.
  • The importance of preparing to fail.
  • As an investor some of situations he looks for with distressed sellers when he is buying for himself
  • His take on "flipping" vs a more traditional buy-and-hold strategy.

Have a listen, Matt has a wealth of experience and we are sure investors at every level will find some nuggets to take away from this interview. Part twowill be published next week. Enjoy the show!
