The truth behind the $640,000 profit in Otara

 The truth behind the $640,000 profit in Otara 
 
Well, our client has really stirred up the chat on the news sites last week. 
 
We get it. On the face of it, a $640,000 gross profit in four months seems like an example of wild speculation in a market gone crazy. 
 
But that is not so. Our clients don't speculate. In fact, we loathe speculation. 
 
This client, who we'll call 'Client-J' was not reliant on the market increasing to make a substantial profit from this deal. She calculated it based on knowing the market, knowing how the pieces worked, and being able to see what others couldn't. 
 
The deal had its challenges too, it wasn't all plain sailing, but look at the result!
 
Here's the OneRoof article in case you haven't seen it: Click here 
 
The point is, this result was achieved because of purposeful strategy, not luck or hope. 
 
And look at who the three bidders were:...

KEEPING YOUR HEAD IN THE GAME: Property Investment Success

What does mindset and personal development have to do with property investment and wealth creation?
 
Well…Everything.
 
AssetLab’s philosophy is to “Work harder on the INVESTOR than on the INVESTMENT”
 
Now I hear some people saying “Nope. We’re Kiwi’s. We don’t like flowery stuff mate; just give us the nuts and bolts and we’ll be ‘right”
 
If only that were true. It does seem that way on the face of it of course but the reality is far from it.
 
Let’s face it, most of the Property Education principles taught in NZ are not new. Most of the information can be found if you look hard enough; Books, Forums, Investor Associations, Good ol’ Google, it’s all out there. A lot of it for free.
 
AssetLab are in the business of Wealth Education so it may seem like we’re bias towards it. And you are right, we are.
 
But we encourage free...

Should I pay my own Home off First, before my Rentals? by Graeme Fowler

Disclaimer: Nothing is this article is meant to constitute financial advice of any kind, and is the opinion of the author only. Seek professional advice before making any financial decision.
 
This is a question that comes up at times when talking to other investors about property investing and the debate about P & I vs Interest Only loans.
 
Logically and financially it makes more sense to pay your own home off first and as soon as possible, while having your rental property loans on interest only. The reason being you can claim interest as an expense for tax on a rental property, but not on your own home. So why would you want to pay off any principal on your investment property loans while still having a mortgage on your own home, if you’re not able to claim that interest? It makes sense from a financial perspective and because of this, investors will often begin this way with their investing. I used to talk about this with other investors 15 years...
