Why You Need a Team to Build Generational Wealth

Are you a Property Investor wanting to create a level of financial independence?

Isn’t that the aim of every property investor, you well may ask?

Surely all investors dream of the day they can give up their day job and live off their property portfolio.

I would suggest for 98% on Investors, this would be the case.

Mainly because they have a finish line…… Goal Achieved!

But for a higher level of investor, the remaining 2%, it is just the beginning.

There is no finish line, they are focussed on a level of sustainable, longer term wealth.

Not just for them, but for the generations to come.

Here are my thoughts;

Why You Need Mentors To Create Multi Generational Wealth in Property? Brett Warren

Setting a Finish Line

In my experience, the majority of investors I speak with do not set their sights high enough or long enough.

They set their goals too low as they feel it would be achievable over a reasonable time frame.

I am amazed at clients I see that are still more than 15-20 years away from retirement and their goal is to have a passive income of anywhere from $50,000 - $100,000.

My biggest fear for these investors is not that they miss their goal, but rather that they reach it.

It is also usually a very superficial type of goal and involves very little detail.

They want to make millions with little to no effort and it is why 98% of investors never create enough wealth for either themselves or their family.

They tend to be more self-focussed type of goals.

What if we dug a little deeper…


Create Generational Wealth

What if you took a holistic, longer-term approach to creating wealth?

It would mean not just focussing on the next 10 – 20 years, but well beyond that, potentially to another generation.

Shifting your focus longer term and away from yourself is a totally different way to invest and it is what the 2% of wealthy and successful investors focus on.

Sure, there needs to be a checkpoint along the way, to ensure your own financial goals are met, but it is not the finish line.

You need to build something more substantial, that can create lifelong, generational wealth.

This strategy requires a greater level of detail, you need to go deeper and set things up accordingly.

Step back and treat it like a business with a documented strategy, not just a hobby where you hope for the best.

Growing Wealth

It Will Take a Team

Creating generational wealth will require a team, not an individual.

I like to use the analogy of a Rally Car driver and their team.

Sure, they are the driver, but they have a Navigator right beside them so that they can do what they do best and drive.

The Navigator keeps them on track and keeps an eye on the bigger picture.

Then there is the mechanic and pit crew that keeps the vehicle fuelled and in running order along the way.

Let’s look at how it works with Investment….

You are the Driver of your life like the driver of the rally car and need to make the final decisions.

But you will need someone to keep you on the right track, to see your blind spots and get you to the finish line faster.

I see the Navigator, potentially as an experienced Property Mentor or Strategist

Then we get to the pit crew and a few important team members are

Finance Strategist will keep your portfolio fuelled.

While banks and brokers often focus on the best rate or deal, a finance strategist ensures your business is set up and structured properly and has buffers in place.

An accountant could be like a mechanic and can put the right structures in place.

This is vitally important if you want to protect and pass on your wealth to the next generation to avoid tax and legal issues.



While most investors like to dream about a finish line, a tiny percentage look beyond that.

They are looking to create lifelong, generational wealth.

They recognise that although they are the driver, they will need a team of experts in their chosen profession.

This will allow them to focus on what they are doing and allow the experts to keep them moving forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.

But rather than reaching a destination, they are looking to create lifelong wealth that they can enjoy and set up their family with.

Planting a seed today, so that future generations may prosper.

That is why you should shift your focus to lifelong generational wealth.

You need to plan

So while the property markets will create significant wealth for many Australians, statistics show that 50% of those who buy an investment property sell up in the first five years.

And of those who stay in the investment game, 92% never get past their first or second property.

That's because attaining wealth doesn’t just happen, it’s the result of a well-executed plan.

Planning is bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it now!

Just to make things clear...buying an investment property is NOT a strategy!

It's important to start with the end game in mind and understand what you need and what you want to achieve.

And then you have to build a plan, a strategy to get there.

The property you eventually buy will be the physical manifestation of a whole lot of decisions that you will make, and they must be made in the right order

That's because property investment is a process, not an event.

If you’re a beginner looking for a time-tested property investment strategy or an established investor who’s stuck or maybe you just want an objective second opinion about your situation, I suggest you allow the team at Metropole to build you a personalised, customised Strategic Property Plan.

When you have a Strategic Property Plan you’re more likely to achieve the financial freedom you desire because we’ll help you:

  • Define your financial goals;
  • See whether your goals are realistic, especially for your timeline;
  • Measure your progress towards your goals – whether your property portfolio is working for you, or if you’re working for it;
  • Find ways to maximise your wealth creation through property;
  • Identify risks you hadn’t thought of.

And the real benefit is you’ll be able to grow your wealth through your property portfolio faster and more safely than the average investor.

Your Strategic Property Plan should contain the following components:

  1. An asset accumulation strategy
  2. A manufacturing capital growth strategy
  3. A rental growth strategy
  4. An asset protection and tax minimisation strategy
  5. A finance strategy including long-term debt reduction and…
  6. A living off your property portfolio strategy
