The more you know about the most common mistakes that investors make, the better your likelihood of building lasting wealth.
In this series of short videos, Ahmad Imam and I discuss the common mistakes I’ve seen investors make.
Today we discuss the commonly held belief that negative gearing is a strategy.
That’s not true – negative gearing is the result of how you fund a property, not a strategy in itself.
Watch today’s video as I explain why…
Some of the points we discuss are:
- Negative or positive gearing is the result of how you fund your property, it’s not an investment strategy of itself, however many investors make the mistake of thinking it is a strategy.
- If you look for property with positive cash flow property you will have to forgo strong capital growth.
- My strategy is to buy a high-growth property and have a finance strategy to cover your cash flow. That way you buy time as well as a property. This means that whether the government changes negative gearing laws, it shouldn’t affect you.
- Some of the questions you should ask before investing are:
- What am I trying to achieve?
- What is my budget?
- What is my finance strategy?
- What is my risk profile?
- What ownership structure should I use?
