The secrets of a successful property investor

The secrets of a successful property investor

Why do some investors achieve extraordinary success, while others struggle? Why is it that some investors also appear to attract an abundance of great opportunities? We’ve seen a lot of investors purchase through Property Friends and notice some common traits that set them apart from those who do not purchase or keep providing excuses why they “Can’t” invest. Here’s a summary of the make-up of a successful property investor – how many points describe you?

Strong desire:
Successful investors have a strong desire to achieve their goals and won’t settle for a mediocre life. They understand the importance of building wealth, not for the sake of having more money, but for the comfortable lifestyle it presents. 

Think abundance
Opportunities are always available. We’ve discussed this in previous articles, however if you remain positive and optimistic you’ll be amazed at the deals that present themselves to you. If you miss an opportunity, it’s not the end of the world – another deal [or opportunity] is just around the corner.

Committed to a strategy
The biggest mistake new investors make is that they try to do too many different things at once. All good business
owners and that is in effect what property investors are – business owners] will tell you that a strong, consistent
focus produces better results. It’s this focus that also makes it easier to manage their business. Before you jump in,
set yourself down, write a plan and stick to it. If you feel you are unable to write a plan, have an expert help you.
To get you started, we’ve asked our marketing expert to provide a “beginners guide to writing a property plan”
and included it in our next article!

Action orientated
You’ve written your plan, set goals and are ready to make things happen. Don’t talk about it – do something about
it. The time to take action is now. Don’t wait 6 moths for some factor to improve, as other factors will have changed as well.

It’s a team sport
You can’t do it all on your own. Legals, management of your property [and tenants] all need the help of professionals. They can fix problems faster, find tenants easier and know all the rules and regulations. It’s worth
collecting a team you can trust and work with them.

Fall down, get back up again
You may experience unexpected hurdles along the way. We all know life is not meant to be easy – but if something
goes wrong, remember you have your team to help and all you’ll need to do is dust yourself off and get back onto
your strategic plan.

Market knowledge
It’s important to know what’s happening in the Australian property market. Where are the new hot spots, what
laws have changed, what are the predications for the future. That’s where Property Friends also helps you – by
providing you with the results of our independent research and wealth of knowledge!

Celebrate your success

mind to understand that all the hard work, stress and [maybe] disappointments you went through were worth it. Treat yourself to a nice bottle of red, weekend away or night at Gold Class cinemas! Success is an important part of your journey!
