Want to Learn to Invest?
You’ve always wanted to invest in real estate, right? The expression isn’t ‘safe as houses’ for no reason. Owning investment property is a great way of securing your future or even helping your children to secure theirs. So, how do you get started? Here’s some great tips to help you.
One of the best (and easiest) ways to learn about real estate, investing and all the things that concern both is to read. While that sounds ‘old-school’ there are many online blogs that provide content, sometimes from key industry experts. The best part about the blogs is the number of them – by reading as many as you can you gain a range of different perspectives and opinions. This can help you gain the confidence to make informed decisions.
There are also many books written on the subject of investment. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, while written twenty years ago is one that remains popular and relevant. A follow up, Rich Woman by Kim Kiyosaki, Robert’s wife gives a woman’s perspective on investment. Books with a specifically Australian focus include The Future of Property Investing in Australia by Sam Saggers, 20 Must-ask Questions for Every Property Investor by Margaret Lomas and The Barefoot investor by Scott Pape.
While requiring an outlay of money and time, there are courses that you can undertake that will give you an understanding of property investment and help you learn ways to create additional income through asset purchase. A local TAFE is a good place to start with an enquiry regarding this type of course.
One of the best ways to develop skills and knowledge in any aspect of life is to build relationship with a mentor. A good mentor will be a person who is already achieving the things you are setting out to accomplish yourself. They will be willing to listen and advise honestly.
