You’re never too young to start in property investment

How a property investor just retired at 28 years old

Yep, you read that right. I’ve just read a story about a young guy who has retired from his day job, thanks to his investment property portfolio. While he lives and invests in my old backyard (well, nearly − he resides in West Sydney), his story should prove to anyone of any age that it is neither too early nor too late to start investing in property and change your life.
