10 Rules for Successful Property Investment


Many of our clients are asking us about property investments, and the best way to structure these in order to reduce tax.

In an upcoming newsletter we'll outline an awesome way that you can own a property and have your boss effectively pay it off for you.

Buying the right property is the key. Recently we read an awesome list put together by property consultant Michael Matusik, and his 10 rules for successful property investment really make sense to us.

Here's what Matusik said:

So, stick to the 10 and you'll make millions? Well, short answer – there are no shortcuts and no guarantees. But by following my 10 rules I believe you can, with a little effort and knowhow, convert a modest deposit into a sizeable nest egg. But (yes, there is always one) don't do it blind-folded – seek independent investment advice, have at least a 10% deposit, and have a truly spare $100 per week available to afford to buy that investment property."
