By Reporter 27 January 2022 | 1 minute read

The last time we checked in with this investor, he had 18 properties under his belt. Now, not only has he reached his personal goal of buying 30 properties at 30 – he’s surpassed it.

In this long-awaited update, Smart Property Investment’s Phil Tarrant sits down with Sam GordonGordon, VIC Gordon, NSW Gordon, ACT, the director of Australian Property Scout and a full-time real estate investor, to give us an insider’s look at his formidable 31-property portfolio spanning several states.

Sam looks back on how he started his investment journey at 19 with a lemon unit buy, shares how his goalposts moved throughout the years, and highlights the strategies employed to achieve his $15 million-valued portfolio.

Phil also questions Sam about his thoughts on buying houses versus units, metropolitan versus regional, and which locations he has on his radar for his next buy.
