You don't need a uni degree to be a successful property investor, you just need some good solid advice from people in the industry. Here's part 1 of our our guide to help you through maze of information available.

Buy a property you can afford

The property you decide to purchase must fit within your budget; what you can spend and what you can afford to pay long term.

Work on the numbers before buying

Make sure the property has the right rental return and tax deductibility, an investment first and a tax deduction second.

Talk to the right people

Trust your friends, family, financial advisor, real estate agent and accountant to give you advice within their specialty field. A property investment specialist should always be consulted for accurate property investment advice.

Define and understand your situation

Do you need more cash flow to pay off your mortgage or are you debt free? Once your goals are defined then you can put your strategy into place, for example do you buy a brand new house and land package or an older property to develop.

Buy with your head not your heart

You shouldn’t get emotionally involved, always buy with your head and not your heart. The house next door isn’t always the best investment option.

Buy the right investment

Some investors buy in regional areas and commercial property to take advantage of high rental yields. These properties are great when things are going well but on the flip side, they are more likely to be empty for long periods and are exposed to volatile economic conditions.

Put the right structures in place

This is very important without the right structure you are setting yourself up to FAIL, ask an expert property advisor.
