19-25 April: Episode 12

During the past year, landlords have been experiencing non-paying tenants, vacant units, or having to drop their rental price, just to keep their units occupied. For many new property investors, this can be a rather fearful experience.

In this episode we find out what these property investors can do, to secure their investments during these uncertain market conditions.

Renovating and upgrading our homes, is part of the joys of being a homeowner, but we should always be aware of not spending more on the home, than what the property is actually worth, because, should you decide to sell, you may not be able to make your money back. Which means you might have to sell at a loss. We find out how to add value to our homes, without over-capitalizing.

Property investing is a great way of generating a passive income and achieving your financial goals. However, most people who are thinking about getting into property investing, never actually take that first step.
