Inside The Property Industry: Why You Should Ignore The Hype
If you choose wisely, you can expect your property value to increase at around 8% a year, so property investment is a pretty safe bet. Smart investors get rich slowly.
Yet during a rising bull market, you’ll find seminar rooms full of people lapping up the advice of so-called experts. But once the party’s over and the market cools, these guys do a Houdini faster than you can say economic downturn.
Don’t get me wrong. I believe in investing in education. So long as a weekend course is not the extent of your learning. After all, you wouldn’t expect to become a pro-golfer after just one weekend on the course, would you? If you really want to educate yourself, don’t just go to one investment seminar. Go to them all!
In the early 2000’s I considered myself a pretty savvy investor. Back then there was a very slick operator doing the rounds promoting property investment opportunities (I won’t name names). At the time I played in a band and one night our drummer told me he’d just paid $8k and was in the process of handing over another $15k (huge money back then) for a property course. He’d just signed on to buy three apartments off the plan with the aim of selling before settlement. He told me he was going to be a multi-millionaire.
I was intrigued and went along to one of these seminars to see if I was missing something. I was shocked by what I heard. T e advice given was based on the theory that prices would continue to escalate, as if the bull market would never end!
