Are you interested in getting into property investment this year?

Either your first investment or to grow your portfolio – well today’s show is for you.

Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying a bit of a vacation at the beginning of this New Year. Pam and I are currently cruising around South America, so this show is another episode in the summer series where I share the recording of an interviewed with me by Alex and Liz from the Finder Money Podcast

In this episode, they ask me about how I got started in property investment and I give some of my best tips for those looking to get into the property market.

During our chat I answer their questions and share the lessons I have learned from my hands on experience after buying my first investment property over 40 years ago.

In the Podcast We Touched On:

  • How real estate investment is not a get rich quick scheme.
  • Running into problems by buying quickly and not investing in the right type of properties.
  • Residential real estate is high growth relatively low yielding investment.
  • Buying for capital growth as opposed to cash flow.
  • The most important difference between successful and average property investors
  • The three stages of your property investment journey: asset accumulation, lowering your loan-to-value ratios, and then living off of your property portfolio.
  • How real estate investing is a game of finance with some properties thrown in the middle.
  • Finding properties that will have strong demand in the future – what I call investment grade properties.
  • How investment grade properties are stable with above average market growth.
  • Where an investor should be looking in Australia for their first property
  • How important location is in the success of a property investment and how property type factors into this
  • Capital growth drives your investment. You need to get your first property purchase right.
  • Why it's wrong to buy an investment property you would like to live in
  • How you know when you're ready to invest in property
  • Michael's personal property investment strategy and how he selects an area to invest in
  • The difference between investment grade properties and investment stock
  • Investing where the job growth will be.
  • Why I think Melbourne and Sydney are still good places to consider invest.
  • What really drives property prices
  • How having the wrong habits and a poor wealth operating system is why so many don’t get out of the rat race.
  • Using debt to leverage your money and buy appreciating assets that go up in value.
  • Some of the mindset differences between the rich and poor
  • Recognize that you are where you are today because of what you have chosen to do and what not to do.
  • Become financially fluent, learn about money, and hang around with people who are financially fit.
