Strategy Guide: Balanced
A balanced strategy takes a scale between maximum capital gains and maximum rent, then aims for a point in between that suits your own financial requirements best.
Strategy Guide: Yield
The yield strategy focuses on acquiring property with maximum rental potential – usually meaning you’ll enjoy a positive cash flow week to week but will probably not experience capital gains as much as a growth-focused approach.
Strategy Guide: Growth
Due to the economic nature of the property market, capital gain potential comes at a cost to rental income, and vice versa, so a growth strategy which focuses on acquiring property with maximum growth potential usually means forgoing some rental income and therefore increasing your weekly costs.
Strategy Guide: Flipping
This buy & sell strategy (AKA ‘flipping’) is the fastest way to create wealth through property investment. While it carries higher risk and requires more time commitment, for the right person it can be incredibly lucrative.
