If you want to become a homeowner, your first step is to actually get comfortable with being a renter.
It sounds strange - given that the tradition of first home ownership has always been part of the Australian psyche - but competitive markets, the high prices of capital city locations and the time it takes to save up a deposit means that we need to take a different approach.
I had a client in my office the other day wanting to sell one of her investment properties.
I explained that she was shooting herself in the foot by being uncommitted to her investment – that she was being a apathetic investor!
If you are a homeowner, there will come a time when you need to decide whether to pay off your current loan or invest in another property.
If you are a few years into your home loan, odds are your circumstances would have changed a lot since you first acquired your home.
It’s likely you’re earning more money and therefore have some extra funds in the bank.
As a self-directed investor, you don’t like to leave your finances and investments up to someone else. You’re a ‘take the bull by the horns’ type of person and I really admire that. But sometimes it’s hard to see those opportunities and seize them. This could be for a number of reasons including locality restrictions, competition and time.
