  • Four things I wish I'd known before I started investing in property
    I bought my first rental property at the age of 22. Luckily it turned out a great investment. But since then I've learnt a lot. Truth be told, there's a heap of things I wish someone had told me about when I first got started in property back then. The time, the money it could've saved me...

  • If you thought renting property is better than buying... I've got news for you...
    I've often argued the fact that renting property is the quickest way to throw your money away. Why would you rent, when you could buy? When you buy a property, you're making a solid investment in your financial future. Not only do you have a place to live, your property value increases too.
