005 | Four Pillars of Mastery – Asset Selection

 We’re going to let you in on a secret for selecting great assets… 

Look at the big picture BEFORE the property!  

That’s right folks! We’ll be discussing this (and more!) as part of the third episode which focuses on A for Asset Selection in our ABCD Property Investment Formula.  

And while most think they score an A+ in this area, we look at a couple pitfalls that can cause people to score an F!  

Bryce discusses why you should avoid being sold on “The Bling!” (Think shiny taps and sparkling stainless steel…yep, he definitely fell for that one 😉)  

…and instead, what other areas you should be focusing on when selecting an asset! Is investing in new or old properties better? And how important is location and land value?  

On top of that, we look at the big question on everyone’s mind: Who should you be taking property investing advice from anyway??  

Tune in for all this and more in today’s episode!  

 ✨ Plus don’t miss Ben’s golden return ratio which could completely change the way you select your assets! ✨
