Property investments and strategy for the risk averse

Don’t outsource your financial life to someone else. Take control of it and keep your finger on your investment. With a little bit of effort you will be rewarded handsomely for your efforts!

Think about these things for starters:

  • Invest in something you can touch
  • Use other people’s money to pay your bond – i.e. rental property
  • Make calculated decisions when you invest and keep on making calculations throughout the lifetime of your investment
  • Make time once a year to research your rental income, fees and levies.
  • Reinvest your profits in new property
  • Keep your finger on your investment by getting involved in the body corporate
  • Look after your investment by maintenance and bettering your property
  • Invest for the long run
