One of the biggest concerns we see when investors start to build their portfolios is that they don't create a buffer for themselves. It is so important that you understand how to deal with situations whether it's you losing your job, whether it's you not having tenants in the property, whether interest rates are increasing. How do you deal with these cash flows? Well he best way to do this is to always make sure that when you buy property you have a buffer in place. Now his buffer could be equity that you've released from another property, it could be some cash sitting there but you must always have a fall back position. So I'd urge everyone out there, if you are building a portfolio make sure that you have. Significant buffer in place.
