Your different investment property options

  Buying the correct investment property can be a tricky decision, simply because with property there is no one size fits all approach.  Each investment property will have its own advantages and disadvantage.  By understanding your different investment property options you will be able to make a better informed investment for your lifestyle. Let’s have a look at your different investment property options…   Student Investment Property Students Investment property is always a good idea, simply because of the ample amount of tenants.  Another advantage is that many student will co-sign their accommodation lease with their parents. This should eliminate some chance of students falling behind on rent. The downfall with student investment properties are that they tend to take far more work to manage and maintain correctly, and if not managed correctly they can become a small nightmare. I say this because students don’t tend to be the most responsible renters.  They are easy going in simply they don’t care too much.  The important part of student investment properties are that you have to be picky with the quality of tenant you choose.  As a landlord you have the right to simple say no to a potential tenant and say yes to another.  Please don’t take this as any form of discrimination, but you find good and bad tenants in all cultures and income groups.   Be selective of the person that you want to rent your property, not their background.   Advantages: Ample amount of tenants. Disadvantages: The quality of tenants may not always be first class. Making noisy tenants and maintenance issues a concern.   Mafadi...

DIY Move considerations: Short Distances are perfect: You will have to keep in mind that you will have to make a couple of back and forth trips.   Consider hiring a bigger vehicle or trailer for the day, this will take a few trips off. Labour Intensive: Moving yourself is still a big job and a hard job at that. Especially when it comes to those heavy fridges and washing machines.  I would suggest other than your few friends (and especially if they are all too busy) that you hire a few day labourers.  This way you safe your back and give others a quick payday. Timeframe & Stress: A diy move can add quite a bit of stress.  Making sure everything and everyone is in order is not a job to be taken for granted. You should ask yourself how much time do you...
