Investor Mistakes: Not understanding the risks and downsides.

Not having a Plan B and Not understanding the risks and downsides.

By James Upton

When I tell people that I am a property investor their response is often;

 

“Oh really, you must be a bit of a gambler… Bet you are hoping the market rises again soon?!”

 

When I hear this response time and time again, I have a little chuckle to myself.

 

In my opinion I could not be less of a gambler if I tried and I have strategies no matter what the market is doing, not simply being a speculator and waiting for it to increase. In all reality, my risk tolerance is very low and I have a number of exit strategies or Plan B, C and D’s for every trade property or buy and hold property I purchase.

 

For example, I just completed a trade in South...

Stuff-It-Up Strategy

When you think about investing, do you get really excited at the thought that you can LOSE money every week?

Well, you are not alone. People have been doing this for years in New Zealand and thinking it’s a great idea.

They purchase a property and the rent does not cover the costs of owning it.

“Which costs?” you ask. Good question. Things like: Mortgage interest and principle repayments, Land rates, Water rates (in some cases), Body Corporate fees, Insurance, Property Management fees, and maintenance to name the most common ones.

An example of this type of property would be:

Purchase price: $700,000

Rent per annum: $30,000 ($600 per week x 50 weeks, allowing for two...

Article ‘Getting Into Line’ by Graeme Fowler

Article ‘Getting Into Line’ by Graeme Fowler written in 2004.

“Get into a line that you will find to be a deep personal interest, something that you really enjoy spending 12 - 15 hours a day working at, and the rest of the time thinking about.” Earl Nightingale.
 
Above is one of the quotes I have used in my book. I think for the people starting out in real estate, in business, or any profession for that matter, it’s important to really understand this quote. Too many people are looking for a quick fix, or the one answer or idea that is going to be the secret to making them rich. While this can happen, it is rare and your chances of winning Lotto may be a better bet.
 
Think of it this way: – let’s say you’re...

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...
