Property Investment Properties – Why trust them?

So you’ve decided to secure your financial freedom by investing in property? Congratulations! That’s a very good first step to make towards securing your financial future.

Now, I’m often asked by prospective investors exactly why they should trust their property investment to property investment companies. After all, investing in property is easy isn’t it? You just buy property, let it and collect the cash.

Well no, successful property investment really isn’t that simple.

Put it this way, would you make an investment into the stock market without taking professional advice? Would you invest in a pension without taking professional advice? I thought not! So why would you make an investment into property, without taking advice from professional companies?

For a moment, let’s look at what the advantages are of making your investment through the property investment companies:

  • Property, like most investments, works best when treated as a medium-long term investment. That calls for a strategy …. an overall plan for how you will enter, grow, play and, eventually, exit the market.
  • Property is a fast-changing, dynamic market. What has worked over the last few years might not work into the future. You need someone who has the inclination, resources and expertise to understand the property market, and who can think strategically into the future.

Maybe I am a little partisan, but I’m convinced that without a doubt the best way to execute your investment into the property market is to use professional help.

Here are just a few ways in which property investment companies can help with your investment strategy:

  • Expertise. A good property investment company will know which locations have a track record of investment returns, or alternatively, which offer good prospects for the future.
  • Diligence. A good property investment company will know what types of property fit your investment strategy and know how to check them out.
  • Acquisition. A good property investment company will know where and how to source investment properties, and at the best possible prices.
  • Implementation. A good property investment company will be able to progress your investment smoothly from acceptance of offer, through all the legalities, through to completion.
  • Logistics. Contrary to popular belief property investment is not a ‘lock it and leave it’ investment. However, good property investment companies will be able to handle lettings and management for you so that it becomes, for the end investor (that’s you!), a practical hands-off investment.

After all, isn’t true financial freedom all about being free from the hassle of working even harder to achieve it too? At the end of the day, this is the very best reason I know for using the services of professional property investment companies.

Live with passion and fun,
