008 | Investment Stock vs. Investment Grade

Well folks, after eight long weeks of waiting, we’ve FINALLY reached our most anticipated topic yet…investment stock vs. investment grade properties! 

Did you know…there’s a higher percentage of investors who’ve sold their property for less than their original purchase price than owner-occupied properties? 💸 

Yep, that’s sadly true. That’s why in today’s episode, we’re diving deep into what investment stock actually is, how it differs from investment-grade properties… 

...and how to know if YOU’RE being spruiked into buying stock!  

We’re also examining the science behind investment grade properties, why depreciation shouldn’t be the end-all, and how becoming a borderless investor can benefit you!! 

PLUS, guess what milestone we’ve just achieved…


A HUGE thank you to all our listeners and those who have left us a review! We love hearing from you so please keep those reviews and questions coming in!
