Australians love investing in property. This is one of the most common and effective ways to build a passive income and generate capital growth across a diverse investment portfolio.

Popular it may be, property investment isn’t a ‘get rich quick scheme’ – at least not in the beginning. Finding the right property to purchase takes diligence and a level head. It’s important to take any emotion out of the process and to carefully weigh up potential risks and benefits.

Think big picture and do your research

When developing a property strategy, remember to think about the big picture. Ask yourself: why do I want to invest, and is this investment likely to increase in value? A property is likely the largest purchase you will ever make, so it’s important to ensure all potential purchases align with your overarching goals.

It’s equally important to do your research – the property market is constantly evolving and you’ll want to stay on top of the trends to get the best return for your investment.
