The Golden Rules of Investing in Residential Property Part 1

Buying property as an investment is one of the safest, soundest and most sure-fire ways to profit. We have collected some top tips to help you pick the right property in which to invest and make the most of your money.

It’s a marathon, not a sprint

When you invest in property, understand and accept that it is a long-term investment. People rarely make a profit (a substantial one, in any way) over the short term. The longer you hold on to the property, the more lucrative the investment tends to be as property rarely loses value over time.

Start buying property as soon as you can

The sooner you buy a property as an investment, the better. Property prices might fluctuate slightly depending on national and global economic cycles, but in general property values increases pretty consistently. The sooner you invest in property, the sooner you can let the investment grow and the more profit you’ll make.

Love your investment

Don’t buy a property as an investment just for the sake of the investment – if you invest in a property you really like, you are more likely to hold onto it in the long run and also add more value to it over the years.

Buy a property in which you can live

When deciding on which property you would buy as an investment, choose a property in which you can live first. As primary resident you get better financial rates, plus it gives you the opportunity to experience first-hand what makes the property great and where you need to improve it to increase your eventual rental income and indirectly your profit in the long run.

Educate yourself

Before you invest in property, make sure you learn as much about this type of investment as you can by talking to the experts – people who rent out property for a living – as well as normal people who have one or two properties in which they have invested and are renting out. Learn about the financial side of buying property as an investment as well as researching trends regarding the best areas and types of residential property in which to invest.
