5 Golden Rules of Property Investment

Anyone seriously interested in property investment needs to be aware of some obvious, yet often overlooked, guiding principles in order to give themselves the best chance of succeeding with any property purchase.

1. Set your goals

Knowing your destination is the first part of any journey. By setting clear targets you can ensure your property purchases meet your needs. The first part of our client relationship is to establish your needs and work with you towards achieving them.

2. The profit is in the purchase not in the sale

It is when you buy a property that you lock in a profit. Finding the best priced deals is crucial to success. Choices Investments operate as a buyer’s agent tasked with getting our clients property at the lowest possible price.

3. Buy with your head, not with your heart

Whether the property matches your financial goals and whether it generates the required return is paramount when making a decision. Whether you would want to live in the property yourself is not important. Choices Investments looks at every property based on its financial merits and presents the case to our clients only on the financial benefits.

4. Be decisive to secure the best deals

Great deals by their very nature are not around long. Procrastination is one of the biggest dangers to any investor‘s chances of success when it comes to grabbing the best bargains. By becoming a Retained client you put yourself at the head of the queue to grab the best sales that we source for our clients.

5. Knowledge is power

To make the best decision you need to know all the variables. Property duties, local demographics, market trends, tax planning and legal requirements all need to be researched before investing your capital. Choices Investments spends thousands of man hours and thousands of pounds in order to find, research, analyse and present all our properties every year to our clients. By doing the legwork for you and partnering with select affiliate companies in areas of tax planning, conveyancing & finance we ensure our clients have all the information to hand before buying a property.
