How to Make Money in Real Estate Investing: A Beginner’s Guide

If you’re like most people, the idea of receiving monthly checks without having to take on an extra job sounds amazing.

That’s why so many people are learning how to make money in real estate.

Unfortunately, this often seems a lot simpler than it really is and beginner mistakes are costly mistakes in the world of real estate investing.

How to Make Money in Real Estate: 6 Simple Steps

The good news is that it only takes six simple steps to learn how to make money in real estate without letting unnecessary mistakes get in the way.

1. Develop the Right Mindset

Most beginners think that learning how to make money in real estate involves step-by-step directions about finding the right properties and knowing how to price rent.

Those things are certainly important, but they won’t do you any good until you learn to develop the right mindset for real estate investing.

Here’s what the right mindset entails for making money in real estate:

  • Patience – You won’t make money overnight by investing in real estate. It will probably happen a lot quicker than you think, but this isn’t a get-rich-quick-scheme.
  • Stay Focused – There is no shortage of distractions out there. While you’re waiting for your real estate investment to prosper, it’s easy to consider taking your money and putting it into something else – something that promises a quick return. Stay disciplined and your efforts will eventually pay off.
  • Leave Emotions Out of It – Nothing good will come from allowing your emotions to play a role in your business decisions. This is especially true when it comes to making money in real estate. Enjoy the process, but don’t buy or sell when you’re feeling emotional.
  • Educate Yourself – We’re going to talk about this next, but, suffice it to say, you can’t afford to let yourself become lazy when investing in real estate. You must always educate yourself about this industry.
  • Take Action – When you’re starting out, you’ll either be chomping at the bit to make your first investment or you’ll be extremely nervous about the proposition, albeit excited about the potential result. If you’re part of the latter, you’re not alone, but you won’t enjoy any returns until you finally take action.
  • Ignore Bad Advice – It will take you some time to recognize what bad advice looks like, but learning to do so is an absolutely invaluable addition to your mindset. For the most part, if it comes from an unqualified source or falls into the aforementioned get-rich-quick bucket, ignore it.
  • Ignore Detractors, too – Just because a detractor is unqualified doesn’t mean they don’t have the best of intentions. Still, whether it’s a friend or a family member, you have to ignore anyone who tries dissuading you from making money in real estate or you never will.

Once you have the right mindset in place, learning how to make money in real estate becomes much easier.

2. Invest in Education

Learning how to make money in real estate is really about learning how to enjoy consistent returns for the rest of your life. No matter what age you are, it’s about setting yourself up for financial security from now until long-past you retire.

It should come as no surprise that 1,200 of the world’s wealthiest people have one thing in common: they read. And they read with one very important purpose in mind: to educate themselves.

Again, at some point, you need to take action. You can waste a lot of time amassing a library of books and letting them collect dust as you work your way through them all (maybe even adding more as the years go by), but this doesn’t mean there’s no place for self-education before you begin investing.

3. Take Your Finances into Account

Obviously, you can’t invest any sum of money you don’t actually have.

However, looking at your own finances before you make an investment goes far beyond deciding how much you can afford to spend.

Everyone has their own parameters for what their dream life looks like. It’s vital that you get very precise with these parameters before you begin looking for properties to buy.

Otherwise, you may spend more than you need to or, worse, you may invest much less and not realize until years later that you aren’t seeing the kinds of returns your dream life requires.

Until you have a financial target to hit, you don’t have a solid plan and it should go without saying that lacking a plan is never a good idea when it comes to investing.

4. Look at Homes as Investments

You already know emotional investing is a bad idea, but this mistake isn’t just about buying when the market is trending up and selling the moment you think there may be bad news on the horizon.

A common beginner’s mistake among real estate investors is letting emotion cloud their judgment when it comes time to purchase a property.

They buy a house based on what they would want to live in. So someone in their late 20s or 30s look for a home they could raise their kids in. A younger investor looks for one that would be a great party-pad.

As a real estate investor, you need to view every potential property as an investment. You don’t buy a stock because you like a product the company makes. You buy it because you believe the market values that product and will continue doing so for the foreseeable future.

The same perspective applies to real estate.

Before buying a property, ask yourself questions like:

  • Will it produce the returns I require?
  • Is it in an area that will attract the ideal tenants?
  • Does it appeal to the types of tenants that will support long-term property prices?

Don’t let your opinion of a home get in the way of cold hard facts, which are all that matter when it comes to making an investment.

5. Understand the Total Costs Involved with Owning a Property

If you already own your own home, this step is a lot easier. After all, you have experience with many of the costs that come after you’ve purchased your property.

For those of you who have never bought a home before, it may come as a surprise just how many other fees there are that you need to cover.

The hidden costs of buying a home can include things like:

  • Conveyancing and Legal Fees
  • Council and Utility Rates
  • Establishment Fee
  • Loan Application
  • Mortgage Insurance
  • Mortgage Registration and Transfer Fees
  • Pest and Building Inspections
  • Stamp Duty

Now, obviously, you’ll be getting help with these bills from your tenants, but it’s still vital that you think about these before purchasing a property as they will help you decide if it’s a good investment or not.

As the owner, you will have other costs to consider, as well. There is maintenance and you may even experience extended periods of vacancy when you won’t have any rent coming in.

Despite these costs, making money in real estate is still one of the best options for long-term financial security but only if you understand this overhead as a beginner.

6. Don’t Take Chances with Your Financing

Most beginners assume that learning how to make money in real estate comes down to picking the best property.

While that’s definitely an important step, just as important is how you’ll finance that purchase. Far too many beginners let their excitement cloud their vision here (there’s that emotion again).

They’ve saved up.

They’ve done their research.

They’ve found an amazing property.

So now there’s just the “minor” detail of receiving financing, right?

While self-education is still important unless you plan on spending years devoted to it before buying a property, speak with a qualified mortgage broker for help with this step.

Attempting it on your own could cost you thousands in the long-run. This kind of mistake might also turn you off from making money in real estate altogether as you won’t see the profits you thought you were promised.

Financing a property requires considering a number of different factors, something an experienced broker will have absolutely no problem doing and doing quickly, so you can finally make that purchase.

7 Steps to Creating a Winning Mindset in Property Investing

There’s a lot to be said for making money in property investing.

However, sometimes, it seems as though there’s a lot more being said about how to go about doing it.

While it’s definitely important to learn the objective steps you must take to become a successful property investor, it’s been my experience that most people overlook what is by far the most important element to be successful.

Mindset: the Essential Key to Making Money in Property Investing

If you want to make money investing in properties, you must develop the right mindset. Follow the seven steps below, and you’ll have the frame of mind it takes to begin making money in real estate and continue doing so year after year.

1. Remember: Patience Is a Virtue

If it were possible to become wealthy overnight, we’d all be wealthy.

The reason most people aren’t is that they lack patience. They don’t want to wait for their investment to grow. They want to watch it skyrocket after the first week or month. Some people get antsy after 24 hours!

Looking back on all my years in this industry, I’d say one of the easiest ways to predict the success an investor will have is by looking at how patient they are.

You can have all the money in the world. You can even have enviable insights into the real estate market.

If you don’t have patience, nothing else matters.

Keep in mind, making money in real estate doesn’t require the patience of a monk. If you check out client success stories, you’ll see how quickly our investors began seeing results.

However, that’s only because they have the discipline for a long-term strategy.

2. Stay Focused on Your Desired Outcome

In fairness, this can sometimes make our first tip for making money in real estate a bit difficult.

On the one hand, I’m encouraging you to be patient.

On the other, I’m telling you that it’s vital to keep thinking about that goal you’re after.

While staying focused like this may make you a bit impatient at first (e.g., “I can’t wait until…”), in the long-term, it’s the perfect supplement.

Other investment “opportunities” will vie for your attention.

There will always be shiny objects you’ll be tempted to chase.

If you can remind yourself about all that you have to gain by staying disciplined – staying patient – you’ll have an easier time ignoring these short-term enticements.

3. Don’t Become Emotional

I absolutely love making money in real estate.

It’s my favourite topic of conversation. It’s my favourite thing to learn about. I could – and do – spend hours doing both. My love for investing in properties is why I turned it into my full-time profession.

If you can’t tell, I get very excited just writing about this topic.

But when it comes time to actually invest in properties, I put my emotions to the side.

Jesse Livermore was a world-famous American investor, known as the “Bear of Wall Street.” While his investment career was a tumultuous one, he was widely lauded for his ability to remain detached from popular opinions that swayed the market.

He once said:

“The financial markets will remain the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow simply because of the four basic human characteristics of fear, greed, hope, and ignorance.”

Sure, the market changed a lot during his lifetime, but Livermore was right about what moved them. He didn’t let those things move him, though, so he was able to capitalize.

Here’s another telling quote from one of the wealthiest men alive, Warren Buffet:

“Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies.”

The same advice holds true for those interested in making money in real estate.

You won’t succeed if you throw money at opportunities when you feel indestructible because the market’s doing well and then immediately try to sell your property the moment it goes the other way.

Becoming emotional at times is understandable. It’s human. Letting those emotions get to you, though, is a flaw that will cost you – literally.

4. Make Education a Priority

“I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious.”

– Albert Einstein

Fortunately, making money in real estate doesn’t require a profound knowledge of physics.

That said, I love this quote from Einstein because it highlights the power of prioritizing one’s education. When it comes to investing in properties, the more you know, the more options you’ll have. You’ll see opportunities where others can’t.

As you become successful, it will also become much easier to stoke this kind of curiosity. You’ll look forward to learning even more because you’ll have firsthand experience with its benefits.

It’s when you first start out that it can sometimes be difficult. Again, that’s when patience is a huge asset.

The good news is that the Internet is full of blogs, eBooks, videos, and other resources that make this easier than ever before. Best of all, the vast majority of them are completely free.

5. Become Action-Oriented

A lot of people – maybe even the majority of people – would love to enjoy the benefits of investing in real estate.

Unfortunately, they never do because they never take action.

I’m not saying you should empty your bank account today and buy a property with it.

But you do have to take some kind of action to become an investor and reap the rewards.

This could mean educating yourself about investing.

It could mean creating a budget, so you have the funds to invest.

Maybe it’s finally talking to your spouse about this opportunity.

Whatever the case, there comes a time when you’ve done enough thinking and finally need to do something about it.

Don’t be irrational, but don’t be indecisive, either.

6. Learn What Bad Advice Is and then Ignore It at All Costs

“Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgment.”

– Tony Robbins

For some of you, taking action isn’t a problem.

Maybe you know this about yourself.

Maybe the problem is that you take action far too often.

Even if that’s not the case right now, this is still an essential step to building the kind of mindset necessary for making money in real estate.

So if you’re currently fighting indecision, this advice will eventually apply.

That’s because the world is full of bad advice. Just like I mentioned it’s not hard to find educational resources about investing in real estate, it’s also incredibly easy to find advice from people with absolutely no experience.

Mr. Robbins brings up a great point about the relationship between success and making mistakes, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your best to avoid making unnecessary ones.

When educating yourself about making money in real estate, here are some red flags you should look elsewhere:

  • The advice is of the get-rich-quick variety
  • The person giving it lacks any credentials or experience
  • They’ can’t offer testimonials or success stories that prove they’ve been able to teach others
  • They don’t use their real name or show their face

As time goes on, spotting bad advice will become second nature. The same goes for ignoring it and staying focused on your goals.

7. Learn to Ignore Well-Intentioned Detractors

Similarly, some of your friends and family may try to convince you that making money in real estate isn’t the right goal for you.

That’s not to say they don’t have the best of intentions.

They probably do, but that doesn’t mean they’re right.

Once again, this comes down to remaining laser-focused on your goal and the path you need to take to get there.

Unless your loved one has more experience with making money in real estate than you or the person you’re learning from (more on that at in a moment), you should probably ignore their advice.

You don’t need to be rude. Thank them for their concern and explain to them why you know investing makes sense for you.

The Shortcut to Developing a Winning Mindset

As I’ve said countless times before, changing your mindset will change your finances.

It really is that simple.

Of course, some of you may not want to wait to begin making money in real estate until after you’ve successfully gone through all seven steps listed above.

Clearly, you missed the first one.

I’m kidding, but while I still encourage you to eventually get through the entire list, we can help you increase your net worth in the process.

We’ll provide you with the education you need to understand this market and what investing entails. We’ll give you those all-important-opportunities to take action, too.

The A-Team Property Management mentor program is designed for people who want an expert’s guidance to help them get started in property investing and provide them with further direction for the rest of their lives.

I know that’s a big claim.

Real Estate Investing Mentor: How to Find & Choose The Right Property Investment Mentor

It’s hard to achieve great things alone.

If you want to meet your goals, it’s good to have someone by your side who will give you support and advice.

Having a mentor means learning from the knowledge and mistakes of someone who has already done what you are trying to do. A great mentor could also give your confidence a boost when you are experiencing self-doubt.

Where will you start looking for a mentor? How will you know if you found the perfect match for you?

Here are some tips that can help you in your search for the ideal person who can help you succeed.

Find someone you admire and respect.

How can you learn from someone who does not inspire you? Whatever field of work you are in, it is a good idea to choose a mentor who has earned your admiration and respect. Pause and take a long look at your mentor’s list of achievements. Are you impressed? Do you want to accomplish the same things in the future? Find someone who has a good track record and credibility. How about your mentor’s reputation and personality? Does your mentor have a positive energy?

Find someone who is genuinely concerned about your goals and achievements too

Don’t fall for “mentors” who offer classes but are really just looking for ways to promote themselves. It is important to find a mentor who wants to see you succeed and achieve your financial goals. This means finding someone who is willing to listen to you and someone who is willing to guide you. Choose someone who is willing to set aside time to meet and talk with you on a regular basis. You need to find someone who is willing to have a long-term relationship with you and will help you achieve your long-term goals.

Be specific about what you need

What are your investment goals? Analyze your current situation and where you are in your investment journey. What are your own weak areas? Where do you need help? Before seeking out a mentor who can help you out, figure out your own needs first.

Also, keep in mind that the mentor you had when you were just starting out may no longer be in the position to help you out now. Always review your relationship with your mentor to make sure that you are still learning something

Know your mentor’s strengths and weaknesses

No mentor is perfect. It’s very unlikely that you will find a mentor that meets 100% of your needs. The important thing is to find someone who compliments your learning style and gives you the information and guidance that you need during specific points in your life.

Aside from skills and knowledge in property investment, it is important to find someone who shows empathy, honesty and strong communication skills. One important thing is to find a mentor who can make you feel more self-confident about your decisions. A few supportive words from the right mentor can have a huge impact on how you think and how you decide.

Find someone with knowledge and experience

Don’t compromise on this. Make sure that your mentor is in the position to teach you. You wouldn’t want to learn from someone who does not know what he or she is talking about, right?

Do your research and make sure that you know your mentor’s background. What makes him or her qualified to teach and guide you?

If you are looking for a property investment mentor, choose someone who is actively investing using the strategies that he or she is teaching. Take a look at your mentor’s properties and find out how he was able to achieve his or her goals. You will learn a lot from observing your mentor in action.

Don’t hesitate to pay the right people

Sometimes, a mentor-mentee relationship just grows organically, but other times, you need to really go out and find someone who can help you out.

People tend to be a bit more hesitant when money is involved, but you might discover that spending money for your own learning is a pretty good investment. Don’t hesitate to pay the right people who will give you time, effort and attention. If you learn what you need to learn, you will get our money’s worth.

Of course, if you are willing to pay your own money, you need to be very meticulous with choosing the right mentor for you. But don’t worry, if you make the right choice, you will see your investments and portfolio grow in ways you’ve never imagined.

Property Investment Tips for Millennials

Millennials are often criticised for impulsive spending habits, but truth is, it is possible to have financial freedom and an impressive property portfolio even at a young age.

Of course it’s not easy work. You need to learn about where to put your money, how to make better financial decisions and how to efficiently grow your portfolio. You need to understand the market and review various properties to find out which ones are most profitable.

Investment property sounds like a lot of work, but hey, it’s definitely a better option than getting stuck with a job that you are not happy with. It’s completely possible to create passive streams of income and live the life you want.

Take the story of Sasha Hopkins of The A Team Property Group. At the age of 26, Sasha was able to acquire 12 properties on a single income. Now with his knowledge in multiple investment strategies, he wants to help millennials achieve the same things he did.

1. Study the market and get the necessary knowledge

The thought of investing in your property and making a lot of profit is pretty exciting. However, you need to work hard before you get there. You need to do your research to understand things like your target price range and various property prices. The more you understand the concepts of property investment, the more confident you will be with taking risks and investing your money. On our website, we have various tips and tricks that can help you minimise risk and earn more money in the long run. Invest time in learning about various strategies that can help you achieve your goal.

2. Find a mentor you can trust

With all the new information and all the investment options that are out there, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. It’s good to hear advice from a mentor who knows what it’s like to take the risk and eventually reach goals.

It is best to find a mentor who understands what it’s like to be young. While it may be tempting to ask someone who is older, it is probably better to ask for advice from someone in your same demographic. Your investment strategy in your twenties or early thirties should be tailored to your specific situation and goals.

If you are looking for someone who started early, it is a good idea to speak to Sasha Hopkins. He purchased his first property when he was 21, and he grew his portfolio from there. You could be just like him!

3. Start ASAP

They say that the best time to purchase a property was yesterday.

While you are young, it is easy to delay investing in property because you are still you think you still have a lot of time. However, if you want to be financially free, you should start while you are more flexible and you don’t have a lot of responsibilities yet. When you get older, you may no longer have the freedom to adjust your living situation and set aside more money for investment. Even if you don’t have a huge income yet, it is possible to do it! If you want to get started today, Sasha Hopkins and The A Team Property group would love to help you out.

4.Build your network

No matter what industry you are in, building your network and getting to know the right people is an important aspect that will help you become more successful in whatever you do. In property investment, you’d want to be surrounded by the right people who can help you have the right knowledge about how to invest your money right. You will get to hear tips about where to find the best properties and when is the best time to buy. Property investment can be difficult if you are trying to do it on your own, so invest in building a network of people you can trust.

5. Understand that you need to take a risk

Investing is never a risk-free experience. Once you understand that you can lose your money with one wrong move, you will likely be more interested in analyzing your strategies. Remember, investment is not an emotional experience. You need to understand the math in order to really make a profit. If you are looking for a fresh and innovative approach that can help you achieve wealth and financial freedom, then Sasha Hopkins and The A Team Property Group would love to help you minimise risk and maximise results.

6.Believe that you can do it!

Let go of your “what if’s” and just take the leap. Yes, there are times when you might make mistakes. You might also make wrong decisions and encounter failure, however you won’t achieve anything if you let your fears take over. Don’t listen to the voice telling you that you won’t make it. Just do your best, take the leap and trust that you will achieve your goals.

8 Common Property Investment Mistakes

They say that a mistake is a great teacher.

But wouldn’t it be better if we all learned from the mistakes of others instead?

In property investment, the less mistakes you make, the less money you lose.

If you are a beginner, we have tips that can help you avoid mistakes. This can help you reach your goals faster.

Here are some of the most common property investment mistakes that beginners make and how to avoid them.

  1. Not getting a mentor

Even if you have all the resources in the world, it will be difficult to achieve the results you want without the right mentor. If you try to do everything alone, you might end up with missed opportunities or even make costly mistakes.

Surround yourself with the right people who can help you find and purchase the right properties. The right mentor can help you make better financial decisions and even give you access to private sales! A mentor can also help boost your confidence when you are having self-doubt.

In some cases, you might have to pay a bit of money to get guidance from a mentor with the right knowledge and skills. This is perfectly fine. The important thing is to choose the right person who can provide you with the right advice.

  1. Not setting your goals

If you don’t know what you want, how can you work on a plan of action that will help you get there?

Be specific about what you want before you start investing. Do you want to grow a portfolio that will replace your current income? Are you preparing for retirement? Ask yourself these questions to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. The right goals will give you the right motivation to work.

Without goals, you might just find yourself wanting to give up on thing

2. Letting your heart rule

Property investment is not for people who let their hearts rule. When making decisions involving property (or any kind of investment, for that matter), it is best to think logically and do the math.

Letting your emotions take over is a quick way to lose money.

Don’t get too excited or too scared. The best way to handle your emotional bias is to educate yourself about property investment strategies. Research about rental income, compare different locations, study your own cash flow. The more you know, the easier it will be for you to make decisions about your property.

Also consider your goals and what you are doing to achieve them. Measure your progress regularly and ask yourself if your current strategies are helping you move forward. With the right knowledge, you will have the right tools to make the right decisions. You won’t decide on something simply because it feels right.

3. Not planning enough

The best way to avoid property investment mistakes is to plan your strategies. You need some sort of guide or navigation that will that will help you stay on track, especially when you encounter problems. You should think of alternatives or possible solutions when you encounter unexpected trouble like vacancies or tenant problems. At the beginning, you may find it difficult to foresee possible problems, but the longer you invest in properties, the easier it will be for you to plan and prepare.

Don’t forget to always ask advice from experts who can provide you with the right guidance. You also have to make sure that you educate yourself with property investment concepts that will

4.Setting expectations too high

Property investment is not a quick-rich scheme that promises to help you get rich in two weeks. While there are indeed investors who are making a good income from property investment.

Successful property investors make it look easy, but truth is, you need to put in a lot of work and effort if you want to be just like them, you need to put in effort to learn about and understand the industry and the concepts that will make you earn more money.

Make sure to level your expectations if you want to be a successful property investor – remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint.

6. Holding back for so long

How long does it take you to you to make a decision to buy a property? If you don’t want to miss out on the opportunities, you need to find the balance between buying too quickly and taking too long to decide.

If you rush too quickly without doing proper research, there is a good chance that you will make the wrong financial decisions, however, if you take too long to decide, then other property investors might beat you into buying a good deal.

The longer you invest, the easier it it will be to find the balance between making a quick decision and knowing what you need to know.

7. Failing to understand money matters

If you really want to succeed as a property investor, you need to understand finance and money matters. You need to educate yourself about things like rental income, cash flow management. You also need to have a contingency plan if you experience extended vacancy and unforeseen maintenance.

It is also important to have a good understanding of other expenses such as insurance, water rates and others.

It’s not as simple as you think. You need to take other expenses and other situations into account as well .

8. Choosing the wrong property

Choosing the wrong property is one of the most common mistakes of those who are new to property investment. As a beginner, you need to do your homework and understand the property market to really know what you are getting into. There are many things to consider such as the location, the amenities, and the kind of tenants of the you want to attract.

The kind of property that you are looking for should match your goals. You should thoroughly understand the things you need.It ill also be good to find out why the vendor is selling and if there are any renovations that have been recently carried out in the property. For your own peace of mind, it is best to seek for the help of a property investment expert who can make sure that nothing about the property you purchased is going to lead you to failure.

How Can A Property Investment Consultant Help you?

Real estate is a great way to grow your money and achieve financial freedom. In this day and age, you can get started very easily and you don’t need to do everything on your own. With the help of the right property consultant and the right property investment mentor, you can avoid costly and inconvenient mistakes.

It is a big mistake to attempt to do everything on your own. An important aspect of getting into property investment is surrounding yourself with the right people who can help you in your journey. You need a good network of people who can guide you in making the right decisions and choices about where to put your hard-earned money.

Truth be told, getting the right mentor can be the best decision you make in your property investment journey.

Wondering what a property consultant or mentor can do for you? Here are five ways a property consultant can help you.

Get guidance from someone who’s been where you want to go

How will you take your very first step in the property investment ladder? It is important to have a mentor who can help you in your journey to wealth. Someone who has the right experiences and expertise can help you achieve your financial goals in an easier and better way. Working with the right property consultant or property mentors can help you save money in the long run.

If you want a team of reliable and trustworthy property consultants who can help you achieve your goals, you can trust Sahas Hopkins and The A Team Property Group to help you and coach you when it comes to the best property investment deals.

Learn from like-minded mentors to fast track your results

The more you know, the better decisions you will be able to make. It is important to find like-minded mentors who can help you achieve your financial goals in a much faster and easier way.

As you probably know by now, any mistake or oversight in property investment can be quite costly. You can avoid these mistakes and failures with the help of a like-minded mentor who can help you with a plan and strategy to succeed.

It goes without saying that the property investment mentor that you choose should be someone you trust and respect. You should choose a mentor who can help you understand all the important property investment concepts and help you achieve your specific goals. Go for someone who has the right experience and expertise to help you out. Choosing the wrong person can make things more difficult for you in the long run.

Reach your greatness

Ever feel like you are not reaching your full potential? Have doubts about what you can achieve? An experienced property consultant can help you erase self-doubt and achieve your full potential.

Sasha Hopkins and property consultants from The A Team Property group can help you reach your full potential. We can guide you and help you educate yourself and grow in your own property investment journey.

I’ve also paid around $150,000 for personal education and other mentoring services to date. And that is to be able to grow — continually grow — and to be able to be on a level surrounded by other people that are on the highest level of standards possible. So having a mentor is crucial to be able to reach a level of greatness.

Find your property

Where is the best place to invest? A property investment consultant or mentor can help you make the right decisions.

There are many things to consider if you want to make sure that you put your money in the right place. Some of the things you should think about are the location and the kind of property that you want to purchase.

A property investment consultant or mentor will also be able to assess your financial position more effectively. Are you really prepared to handle the mortgage cost, maintenance cost, and management cost? We can help you discuss your finances and manage your money better so that you will be able to purchase profitable properties that will look good on your property portfolio.

We have the experience of working with different types of properties in different areas so you can trust us to help you make the right decision.

Build your portfolio

Investing in property and building your portfolio is a marathon, not a sprint. You need someone who will be able to help you make the right decisions in the long run.

You can trust us to help you with a detailed strategy that will help you get results. After you’ve invested in your first property, we can then help you diversify into different kinds of property and maybe also encourage you to invest in different cities and locations. We can also help you allocate your funds and resources to help you find the balance between long-term and short-term profits.

A well-planned portfolio will help you deal with vacancies and other unexpected problems. A trustworthy property consultant can help you plan a strategy that can help you reach your specific goals. Sasha Hopkins and the A Team Property Group can customise a plan that will help you achieve your goals.

If you don’t plan your portfolio, you will likely end up making a wrong investment that will cost you money. One wrong choice can lead to years of setback in achieving your financial goals. As they say, you should never put all your eggs in one basket. We will help you do just that!

With us, you can be more confident that your assets are growing slowly but surely. Imagine how your portfolio will look in five or ten years if you start investing now!
