Brickx is an Australian startup that lets you invest in property with as little as $75. On the surface that sounds like a great way for the non-baby boomer crowd to get access to the property market. But is it really a good investment? Find out if you should be investing in Brickx with our review.
What is Brickx
Brickx is a marketplace to buy “bricks” or shares in a property. It’s basically a fractional investment platform for property in Australia. You can browse through the properties listed and purchase a share based on the value of the property.
It’s amazing that in 2019 it’s possible to invest in a complex, diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds with just a couple of taps on your phone. In fact investing has never been easier. You don’t need lots of money to start investing anymore. In fact you can get started with as little as $5.
In this post I’m going to share with you my two favourite investing apps for 2019 and why you should be using them.
Good news for Commonwealth Bank customers, you can now use Apple pay with your debit mastercard or credit card. This means if you’ve got an Apple device such as an iPhone or Apple Watch you can use it to pay instead of your card.
Every day I use products from Apple, Google, Netflix etc. So it would make sense that I’d want to invest in them. I do like to try and invest in products that I believe in and use.
But investing in U.S stocks can be both difficult and expensive if you’re based in Australia. But thankfully there are now a number of options for investing in U.S stocks.
Have you started using Raiz but noticed that your account balance has gone down? In this post I’m going to explain what’s going on and what you should do.
What you’re investing in
When you invest using Raiz, your money is invested in a diverse portfolio of stocks and bonds. So it’s important to understand that the stock market does go up and down. So if you’ve invested right before the market has a downturn then your account balance on raiz will go down a little bit.
Christmas and the holidays can be an expensive time of year. There are gifts, parties, travel etc. So here are some tips on how you can save some extra money for the holidays. I’ve focused on finding extra revenue sources that you can use in your spare time.
My favourite investing app, Raiz, has launched a Facebook messenger chatbot.
You can use the bot for things like:
- Ask what your Raiz balance is
- Ask how much you spent on shopping last week
- Ask the total of your roundups for the week
- Ask if you can afford to go out tonight
This is a really nifty idea. When I first heard about the chatbot, I didn’t think anyone would need it, but looking into how much it can actually do, it really does seem useful. As well as questions about your account, you can also ask support questions on how to use Raiz and even general finance questions like “what is a stock”.
