Today, I am handing over the show to you, the listener, as I answer your questions about property investment.
I talk about how to acquire multiple properties in today’s tight lending environment, market timing, and pros and cons of cash flow versus capital growth in properties.
In my mindset moment, I am going to share with you four quotes from Richard Branson that have inspired me and just might inspire you too.
Today’s discussion includes:
- The importance of timing (or not) when investing in real estate
- How to grow a 10 property portfolio in the current finance market.
- The pro’s and cons of cash flow positive propertiesThe importance of buying “investment grade” properties
- The 3 big drivers of property values: People (household formation), Purchasing Power, and Supply & Demand
- My “top down” approach to property investing
- How the best time to buy is when you are ready to buy
- The size of your asset base and its performance is more important than the number of properties you own
- While growing your asset base takes a few decades having the right mentors can help shortcut the process
