Penelope Valentine’s portfolio is a varied one.  From residential investment properties to syndicated investment in caravan parks, motels and upcoming involvement in a fast food and service station site, she has built a portfolio which she says will help her retire in the next ten years.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2641) "

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, Penelope joins host Phil Tarrant to share her tips for others considering adding commercial investment to their property portfolio, unpack the processes in place in her investment syndicate, and discuss how that style of investing has worked for her.

She explains how she invests through her SMSF, why she chooses to self-manage that fund and how impending changes may impact one of her properties which is regularly rented through short-term rental site Airbnb.

The tight lending environment is making things tough for property investors, but as broker Aaron Christie-David explains, it is not just those looking to expand their portfolio who could be met with serviceability complications.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2685) "

With many investors unable to extend the interest-only period of their mortgage and having to switch to a principal and interest loan, Aaron joins host Phil Tarrant to break down what investors can expect around fee increases to maintain their portfolio.

Aaron sums up the pros and cons of both types of loans, predicts who will likely struggle to keep their portfolio and what he has seen as common traits of top performing property investors with years of experience as a broker.
