Buying an investment property can be a path to financial freedom.
PEOPLE looking at buying that first investment property often tell me they are concerned it will limit their financial freedom.
Nothing could be further from the truth: property investment is a ticket to freedom.
The current market presents ideal conditions for investors, and starting to steadily build up a portfolio gives you a dependable asset and a fantastic, flexible lifestyle.
A careful property investment strategy will, over time, start to provide you with long-term rewards and the freedom to focus on a job you love, take time off to travel, or raise a family, all the while knowing you are backed by a bricks-and-mortar asset.
Unlike you, your property portfolio is working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to constantly expand your wealth.
It took me nine years to gain financial freedom through property investing alone.
I did this by focusing on buying well and steadily building up my portfolio.
Once you have one appreciating asset, you can build up equity, which you use to purchase your next property – without having to fund it from your wages.
It is then that the financial benefits allow for change and freedom.
For me, this meant I was able to abandon a 9-to-5 job at the age of 31 and focus on my investments.
I then turned what I love – property, television and education – into my day job as a buyers’ agent and TV host.
