Now is the perfect time to start working towards your financial goals by investing in the property market.
As inflation continues to impact our everyday lives, with the cost of living, food and fuel all on the rise, now might be your last chance in a little while to effectively enter the real estate market.
However, it’s important that you don’t rush in and make poor decisions. To help you, here are just a few property investment tips to help you get ahead.
Understanding your own short term and long term goals is going to be one of the first steps you need to take before investing.
Depending on what you are hoping to achieve, it can wildly impact how you invest. Someone looking to radically grow their wealth will have a completely different strategy to someone wanting to simply make enough money to live comfortably and be financially independent.
Some investors want to build up an investment portfolio that mainly consists of houses that have positive cash flow from rental income. They may focus on dual income houses, blocks of units, and other properties that suit this goal.
Other people may be looking to focus on properties that have a strong chance of growing in value so they can sell them later down the line.
These goals can sometimes align, and often it’s good to have a mix of different types of properties. However, not all places can fulfill these goals.
Once you understand your investment goals you can actually begin to do the research to understand how you can get there.
This one may seem obvious, but with the current climate it’s far too common for investors to rush in and offer over asking price just to secure a property.
While other people are in a frenzy and making impulsive buying decisions, you should be keeping calm and playing the long game.
There are few key things that can help you buy under market value:
Investing in established suburbs outside of major cities is a great option for many property investors.
As city property prices continue to skyrocket, you can start to look at short-term hotspots in areas currently unknown to the broader public.
The level of risk on these investments is often low, and you can enjoy a steady long term capital growth on these properties.
Many people are eager to get into cities, but making the wrong purchase in one of these areas could potentially cripple you financially.
