An Essential Course For Anyone Buying Property

Anyone can buy a property but not everyone does so smartly. Most Aussies don’t ever take the time to educate themselves on what you should do BEFORE you buy your very first property.

By default, a large chunk of Australians buy their first property in their own personal names, putting themselves at incredible risk in the event of lawsuits or unexpected life events. This can be totally avoided, simply by buying your property in the right entity from the outset, to minimise risk. This course explains what you need to consider & do to take control of your property assets. 

Success Doesn’t Happen Without A Strategy

Investing in property ain’t cheap & it’s not something you want to get wrong. It’s proven that individuals who take the time to sit down & think through their property strategy first, are far more likely to achieve a greater level of property success.

In order to formulate a property strategy (suited to your own individual circumstances), you’ll need a greater appreciation of your passive income goals, property market cycles, economic indicators & your current equity position to name a few. Through consideration of these things, you’ll be able to build your property portfolio in a more sound, strategic way at an accelerated rate.

Unfortunately, most Aussies don’t do their property strategy first, instead buying property flippantly or for emotional reasons, resulting in the wrong types of property, in the wrong locations being acquired that underperform & cause financial stress. This can all be avoided by understanding how to formulate your property strategy first, before you buy.

Here’s What You’ll Learn.

If you’re keen to build a property portfolio, you’ll know that investing in property is a huge financial decision that will require you to have the right money mindset from the very start of your property investing journey.

In this lesson, learn 10 basic mind shifts to help shape your financial decisions & behaviours, thereby leading to more effective property investing decisions. A positive money mindset will also encourage you to think constructively about wealth, viewing challenges as opportunities for growth, rather than obstacles. This will help you be more effective in setting & achieving your property financial goals.

Moreover, a healthy money mindset impacts your overall well-being. It reduces stress associated with financial issues & promotes a more balanced life. By understanding the value of money & its role in your life, you’ll have a greater level of financial confidence & peace of mind, enabling you to navigate the complexities of the property investing world with greater ease and success.

Passive income is the holy grail of property investing. In this lesson, learn exactly what passive income is, how it works, its importance in your wealth creation journey & how it should ultimately shape many of your property investing decisions for the remainder of your working life. Master how you calculate it & align your property strategy to it.

The more passive income you build & the sooner you achieve it, the more financial security & freedom you’ll have, reducing the need to work later in life & be dependent on a traditional 9 to 5 job. This type of income will also be your fallback position to help cushion you against unexpected life events such as job loss or health issues that can disrupt your ability to earn money.

Understand what equity is & how to calculate it which is one of the fundamental cornerstones of property investing. Learn how to successfully leverage any existing equity you already have to build your property portfolio, without physically having to save a deposit for each property thereafter (after your initial property purchase).

In this lesson, you’ll gain an appreciation of the different types of equity available & how you can use it to accelerate the growth of your property portfolio & therefore build wealth faster over time. You’ll learn how equity can improve cash flow & mitigate your risk against market downturns that ultimately help you build a more robust & profitable property portfolio.

Learn which real estate professionals you’ll lean on for supplementary property advice, throughout your property investment journey.

Investing in property is a significant financial decision that carries both potential rewards and risks. In this lesson, you learn which professional advisors you should consult, before you buy your very first property. These advisors will have specialist knowledge in their area of expertise, enabling you to make more informed decisions about your property portfolio, particularly relating to local laws, tax implications & the like. Professional advisors will also offer 1:1 advice, taking your individual circumstances into account, your long-term goals & risk tolerance.

In Australia, property taxes are an important consideration for anyone looking to purchase property. Certain property taxes may be applicable to your project & this lesson discloses them all, particularly if you intend to do the ‘buy & renovate” strategy after purchase.

Learn what property taxes you’ll need to consider & how these taxes differ in every state of Australia based on factors such as your location, property value or whether you’re a first home buyer or not. You’ll learn whether these taxes are a 1-off payment or ongoing taxes, crucial information for you to know so you’re fully informed about the ongoing costs associated with your investment.

Estate planning is a critical process that involves organising & managing your assets (including property) to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes after your death. In the world of property, failing to have a proper estate plan in place can affect the distribution of your assets, have tax implications, encounter jurisdictional challenges with varying laws thereby presenting legal challenges for the beneficiaries of your estate.

In this lesson, you’ll learn some of the key things you’ll need to consider in formulating an effective estate planning strategy to ensure your assets (including property) are transferred smoothly, minimising the burden on loved ones during a difficult time. You’ll also gain insights into which entities may be best for you to buy your properties in.

Failing to get the right structures in place prior to exchanging on a property, may result in a need to change your property ownership details, triggering the need to pay the substantial costs of stamp duty again. By engaging in estate planning (before you buy a property), property owners can safeguard their legacy, provide for their loved ones & have peace of mind knowing their property affairs are in order. 

Having an asset protection plan in place (from the start of your property journey) is crucial for safeguarding your wealth & financial stability. In today’s unpredictable economic climate, individuals & businesses are increasingly vulnerable to various risks, including lawsuits, creditors & bankruptcies. Without a robust asset protection strategy in place, your hard-earned assets could be exposed to these threats, potentially leading you to loss of those assets.

In this lesson, learn key insights into what asset protection is, why it’s essential to have & the core components of what makes up an effective asset protection strategy. Doing so will put you in the best position to not lose your hard-earned property assets, but also comes with the added bonus of helping minimise your annual tax obligations. 

To buy property, you’ll often need to secure finance. Successful property investors don’t chase loans on a one-off basis. They’ll get a robust finance strategy in place which is essential if you want to buy property on a more continual basis. Access to finance therefore becomes a key enabler, allowing property investors to leverage their capital & increase their purchasing power.

In this lesson, gain a greater appreciation of some of the key ins & out of the finance world by a top Australian mortgage specialist. You’ll understand what banks essentially want & which lenders are easier to borrow money from. You’ll gain an insight into certain finance dynamics such as interest rates, how you can best position yourself to increase your chances of loan approval (not a decline) & become smarter on how to structure your borrowing so it aligns with your long term property investment goals & risk tolerance.

As a property investor, you’ll need to understand how the property market cycle works as it significantly influences property values, investment returns & the overall success of your property portfolio. The property market goes through 4 key phases, influenced by a number of market dynamics & with an understanding of this, you’ll be able to make more informed decisions about when you buy, sell or hold your properties.

In this lesson, learn the 4 key phases of the property market cycle & the tell-tale signs to help you identity what phase the cycle is in, in your target locations. You’ll learn how to identify the lower end of the cycle so you buy at the optimal price & sell in the peaks to maximise your profits. Knowledge of how the property market cycles works will also help you anticipate changes in property values & rental yields (in advance) helping you capitalise on opportunities or mitigate your losses.

Understanding economic indicators is vital when buying property as these provide valuable insights into the overall health & direction of the global & Australian economy, which in turn, significantly impacts supply & demand for property in Australia & therefore its performance.

In this lesson, learn the 14 key economic indicators that influence property values in Australia & how these can help property investors identify potential growth areas or avoid certain regions facing economic challenges. By keeping a close eye on these indicators, property buyers can gauge the best times to enter or exit the market, predict future trends & make more informed investment decisions.

If your goal is to build a property portfolio, it’s probable it won’t happen by fluke. Having a well thought out property strategy (before you buy your first property ideally), will serve you well in the long run & ensure you don’t acquire property assets that don’t meet your long-term financial goals.

In this lesson, you’ll grasp the ways you can start to formulate a property strategy for yourself, taking your passive income goals & aligning those with a property strategy, individual to your own personal circumstances. Getting this strategy in place will help you identify the right types of property to acquire & the right locations, ensuring you don’t make flippant or emotional property decisions that may result in underperforming investments or, worse, financial strain. This lesson also contains a lot of strategy detail if you plan to buy & renovate a property in the future.
