You’ve probably heard me say that I believe that property investment is a game of finance - with some houses thrown in the middle.

Well, in today’s episode I’m going to tell you 10 things your banker won’t tell you but that you must know to become a successful property investor.

Then Ken Raiss answers a listener’s question about whether you’re ever too old to invest.

And even if you're not wondering if you're too old to invest, there are some great lessons in my chat with Ken.

10 things your banker won’t tell you:

  1. Bankers can only offer you limited options – they won’t tell you what other banks are offering, even if another bank has an option that’s better for you
  2. Bankers are salespeople – it’s their job to sell you financial products
  3. There are three doors into the bank: the retail door, the business branch, and the institutional branches
  4. Mortgage rates are negotiable
  5. An offset account is often better for you than a term deposit
  6. Bank fees make a lot of money for the banks
  7. Some fees can be waived – but you have to ask
  8. Bankers aren’t financial advisors
  9. The system will decide on your loan application
  10. You should shop around for the financial products that best suit your needs

The 3 Stages of Financial Freedom

Phase 1 – Accumulation. Investing doesn’t give you cash flow right away, so you need time to develop your asset base.

Phase 2: – Consolidation. You slowly reduce your debt, increasing your cash flow

Phase 3 – Living off of your cash machine
