Do you know the ABCD’s of property investing??
Yep, we’ve spent years defining this Property Investment Formula (which we like to call the ABCDs) that every property investor should master!!
That’s right, there’s a science behind investing; property investment is not just a transaction.
So get excited folks because over the next four episodes we’ll be deep-diving into the four pillars which make up this Property Investment Formula:
A – Asset Selection (what property to buy)
B – Borrowing Power (how to set up your loan strategy and structure)
C – Cashflow Management (how to trap more surplus)
D – Defence (how to protect yourself and your portfolio)
BUT REMEMBER, while this acronym makes it easy to remember each “ABCD” Pillar, this is NOT the order it should be implemented in.
Most people tend to start with “A” – the property itself… aka Asset Selection – this is NOT where you should start!
Instead, folks, we’ll be starting with the foundation pillar that is also the hardest to master – Cash Flow Management!
‘And why is this the hardest?’, you ask…
Well, unlike the other pillars, success is totally dependent on YOU! 🤯
It requires one’s own planning, observation, and discipline: all things a professional advisor can’t provide!
It’s also the cornerstone to building a successful property portfolio!
As the famous quote goes, “change begins with you” and it’s no different for your finances.
Listen in and learn how to manage your cash flow once and for all!!!
