Why most property investors fail

Unfortunately, 95 per cent of investors out there fail when it comes to achieving their financial goals through property. One of the biggest reasons for this is they simply don't buy enough properties. Ninety-five per cent of investors only own two properties. So when we're looking to achieve our financial goals – whether it's retirement, paying down the home loan or setting ourselves up for the future – you need to go into this with a view that you need a big portfolio. So you could be looking at up to 10 properties and holding them for anywhere between five and 10 years to give you enough equity in those properties to generate the type of lifestyle or achieve the financial goals you set out to achieve. Two properties just doesn't cut it. It's better than none, but it's not going to achieve your financial goals.
