In this first value-packed episode of the Move iQ property podcast, we dive into the truth behind your property search.

We’re here to help you separate what you think you want, and what you actually need from your prospective new home.

Meet the hosts

Our host – property expert and investor, TV presenter and founding director of Move iQ, Phil Spencer, is joined by co-host, Chris Ducker. Chris is a published author, serial entrepreneur and founder of Youpreneur. As someone who has recently been through the home buying process himself, Chris has plenty of questions for Phil.

  • Differentiating between what you want and what you need from your home
