There is no guarantee of success with property investment!

By Jason Paetow | 15 November 2013

If you’re like most Australians, the dream of paying off your mortgage sooner rather than later, working less, having more holidays, achieving financial independence with a secure retirement plan may seem impossible on your current wage.

The reality is that you will need help in addition to your wage and super and for many people they have chosen property investment. We can see it, touch it and we live in it and know that over time it’s always going to be worth more. Makes a lot of sense. However most property investors will never realise this dream because they simply don’t understand the reality of what it takes to makes this strategy work.

TOP 5 reasons why most property investors fail on their own
1.    They have no plan
2.    They don’t understand how banks work
3.    They don’t understand how property investment works
4.    They buy too few properties/risk management
5.    They don’t have a long-term view.

TOP 5 reasons why some property investors only part succeed
1.    They buy the wrong property
2.    They don’t buy enough properties
3.    They don’t manage cash flow within the portfolio
4.    They don’t buy as soon as they are ready to do so
5.    They run their plan on emotion, not on a plan


There is a whole industry that preys on these desires and dreams and pushes the buttons in the advertising. They push ‘off the plan’ properties at people like you with a promise of helping you reach your dreams. But they never educate you on how property investment works, and the correct strategies to take to make sure you reach your goal.

There is no guarantee of success in property investment, and if you don’t understand how it works – the chances are you’ll be like 98% of all property investors who never reach their goal.



An investment is an asset or item purchased with the expectation that it will generate income or appreciate in value in the future.


Property refers to either a tangible or intangible item that an individual or business has legal rights or ownership of, such as houses, cars, stocks or bond certificates.
