Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?

Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently if you had the opportunity to invest in property 10, 20, or even 40 years ago?

Well, I've been investing for decades, which gives me the perspective to see patterns in the chaos that many others see in the world of property and their economy at the moment. Join me on a reflective journey back to 1980 as I share a treasure trove of insights from my property investment odyssey.

Listen in as I draw parallels between past economic challenges and today's landscape, underscoring the importance of perspective and pattern recognition for successful investing. You'll hear candid stories of my own property investment triumphs and missteps, aiming to arm you with direction and certainty for the often unpredictable property markets.

This time, it's a solo session—just you and me—unpacking the timeless wisdom that has stood the test of decades in the property investment realm.

Wealth Through Walls: Lessons from a Lifelong Property Investor

From understanding market cycles to the nuances of Australian property investment, we explore many lessons I wish I knew starting out and the triumphs and challenges that have shaped my approach to building wealth through real estate.

  • The importance of perspective and pattern recognition in navigating the property investment landscape
  • Economic challenges and market fluctuations over the past 40 years
  • The significance of long-term wealth strategies, asset protection, and risk mitigation
  • The pitfalls of applying foreign investment strategies to the Australian market
  • Leveraging compounding, renovations, and strategic debt to manufacture capital growth

“Over the years, another lesson I learned was that every year we get hit by an X factor, an unforeseen event or situation, something that blows away all our carefully laid plans.” – Michael Yardney

“Often the first 10 years of investing are wasted making mistakes and learning what not to do, following the wrong path, taking the wrong strategy or not having any strategy.” – Michael Yardney

“And when you expect to fail, fear loses all its power over you. When you no longer fear failure, you feel empowered to take action.”– Michael Yardney
