People often ask what type of property they should buy,
or what specific area is ideal to invest in so they can build wealth through
But they are asking the wrong question: creating lasting wealth through
real estate investing is not about the actual transaction or event of buying a

Getting past your first or second property
The average property investor – and I’m talking about 90%+ of investors
– don’t get past phase one.
There’s a number of reasons for this, including the fact that life gets
in the way.
We get distracted by kids and work and relationship ups and downs, and
the goals we have for our property investments fall by the wayside.
Or sometimes, and this is often the case, investors don’t have clear
goals for their properties from the outset.
They buy a patch of bricks and mortar because it seems like a good idea
and they want a piece of the property investing action, but they don’t have any
real, structured goals or milestones in mind.
So when times get tough – and they can, and do! – they decide the stress
is too much, and they sell.
