The Whys and Hows of Property Investment
About the Author
First of all I have to introduce myself to you to give credence as to what right do I have to write this booklet. Let me tell you that I learned all of these because I and my husband are doing it as triggered by our then accountant Joe Patino in 1995. He told us to have a look at property investing as we are paying too much tax.
With no further ado, we decided to investigate it, got a loan pre-approval and looked at the real estate magazines. Of course reading books on Property Investment like those of Jan Somers and Margaret Llomas only strengthened and further our knowledge.
For me, the first two things that you must do in order to be successful in property investing are to Take the Risks and Do it NOW.
As for my educational and professional background, I am a graduate of B.S. Economics majoring on Financial Management and with Marketing as my minor. I am a Financial Broker with Certificate IV qualifications and a Risk Insurance Adviser registered with ASIC. But I must say that the best teacher of all is experience. We have more than a dozen properties and I personally have sold at least 100 or more of which majority are in Queensland and a few in Victoria. Personally we have about 8 all over Qld as I have always believed in the Qld market considering the billions of dollars planned by the state government to put into its infrastructures and industries.
These have been going since 1999 when we bought our first investment property at Upper Coomera. I am also a great believer of the saying “put your money where your mouth is” so I am always the one to buy in an area that I believed to be of great potential in the future. In this booklet, my data is based on the Qld property sales that I have done from 1999 to the present covering the boom areas of Robina, Coomera, Mudgeeraba, Pacific Pines, North Lakes, Springfield Lakes and Caboolture. So let us say that this booklet is based on actual data and of course experiences not only our own but as well as those of my loyal clients who have been with me right from the start.
You cannot get anything better than that. I don’t want to bore you with pages and pages of readings so I will try to present each topic in the most condensed way. I hope you learn from it and that this may open your mind to the idea of creating wealth through property investing. I and my loyal clients are the living proof that you do not have to be a Packer or Murdoch to get into property investing.
Anybody with the will to seek financial freedom and the guts to take the risks and (a calculated one, mind you) Can Do It!
