Have a plan
Speak to any good property investor and they’ll always tell you they had a plan in place. Their investment plan ensured they took their time to research the market, crunch the numbers, set themselves goals and set themselves up for success. Start by thinking about why you’re getting started in property investment. Is it to retire early, earn additional income from rent, or perhaps you would like to sell down the track and make a profit from the capital gains? Understanding why you’re getting into property investment will help you make informed decisions about the type and number of properties you should buy.
