 This month we share 2 case studies for you to learn from plus a listener question about buying property with friends as a way of getting into the market.
  • The first case study in today’s show looks at an investor from regional Victoria who has 2 properties and started his investment career when he was still at school.  It is never too early – or too late – to start.
    Hear Paul Wallin’s success story in today’s show.  He’s an accountant and his opinion about investment strategy is well thought through and comes from many years of research and experience.
  •  The second investor case study is with Jo and Kerry, firefighters by profession, newly-weds and owners of an investment property at Coffs Harbour that they’ve just done a massive reno on to create an equity gain of $180,000+.  Hear about their tight timelines, strict budget control and their overall strategy which has evolved over time.
  • Also Jason asks a question to Michael Yardney, one of our experts.  Jason wanted some advice about buying property with a friend or relation as a way of getting into the market.
