    How To Pick The Right Investment Property: “Know Thy Quadrant…”

    How To Pick The Right Investment Property: “Know Thy Quadrant…”

    So, what makes for the RIGHT investment property… and how do you pick it?

    Well, let’s be honest… most of us can’t tick all the boxes on our property wish-list. We’d like to, sure, but often this isn’t an accurate depiction of reality. We can’t all afford the best house in the best street in a blue-chip, capital-growth-centric location every time we invest in property! So, chances are you’ve had, or will have, a conversation about what you might have to compromise in the buying process.

    … And this is where our “Buyer’s Decision Quadrant” comes in!

    This is a framework that can help you with the asset selection process and help you make an informed decision so you are NOT compromising where it matters most. Because there is something that is absolutely non-negotiable.

    So in today’s episode, we’re going to take a deep dive on the four areas — the “Quadrants”  — of our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant so you can sleep well knowing you’ve picked the right investment property with the money you have and the ambitions you seek!

    Listen now to learn how to pick the right investment property by using our Buyer’s Decision Quadrant to weigh up the “wins” and “loses” of what you compromise on!

    Don’t forget, get further insights and “play along at home” by picking up a FREE physical copy of our book here: http://www.thearmchairguide.com.au/

     

    Here’s a bit of what we cover in today’s episode…



    * What is “The Buyers Decision Quadrant” and how can you use it to purchase your next investment property?

    * What is The One Thing you should NEVER compromise on?

    * Should you buy “Smaller, Closer In” OR “Bigger, Further Out?”

    * What can you compromise on if you have a smaller budget?

    * How to recognise which investment property will work for your own circumstances…

    * Is a property that “ticks all boxes” – AKA the perfect property – really a myth?

    * Is “Uglier” always better?

    * Land size considerations…

    * What should you quickly overlook?

    The #1 Reason Why These Properties Soar In Value… While Others DON’T!

    The #1 Reason Why These Properties Soar In Value… While Others DON’T!

    Not all properties are created equal. And there is a specific reason for this – what we like to call “The Psychology Behind The Price”. And this has EVERYTHING to do with human interest and human behaviour – something that can indeed be measured and, almost always, stays exactly the same… no matter who you are or where you live.

    Here’s the deal… there are two “types” of properties – Investment Grade and Investment Stock. And most investors are often tricked into thinking – or falsely assume – that what they think is a good investment is going to turn out to be, well, a good investment. And this is NOT the case. In fact, it’s often the complete opposite.

    This may come as a surprise to you… but the greatest investments – what we call “investment grade” properties – actually target the owner-occupier (that is, the home owner)… NOT the investor!

    And in today’s episode we’re going to tell you exactly why this is and give you the science behind what makes for an Investment Grade property and how to recognise one using the golden rule that underpins the value of property – Supply and Demand!

    Listen now to learn how to get a return on your investment property and keep it… simply by identifying high demand in the property market.

     

    Remember…

    Investment Grade = Great.

    Investment Stock = No good.
