what are the different property investment strategies?

Property investment strategies are a popular topic. They're a regular topic in the media, and a whole industry of seminars has surfaced to educate potential investors on 'little-known' or 'secret' strategies.  At our first meetings, many people ask us what the best strategies for property investment are. Others come to us with a particular strategy already in mind, one that they believe will deliver the best returns. There are many different examples, but some of the more popular ones are:

  • Buy and Hold
  • Renovation for Profit
  • Positive Cashflow Properties
  • Buying Off-the-Plan
  • Negative Gearing
  • Property Development

Unfortunately, these aren't proper strategies. They describe a method of investing in property, but they don't chart a clear path for how the investment is going to lead to the achievement of your financial goals.  A successful strategy isn't just a way you can invest, it's a clear and detailed plan on how your investment will generate the returns you are planning on. It may include some or many of the methods listed above, but more importantly, it will provide the research and expert assessment you need for you to invest in property profitably.
