Expert Advice with Michael Yardney. 16/08/2017

In this podcast, I answer the frequently asked question of how many properties do I need to retire.

This just may be the wrong question because the number of properties you need before quitting your job depends on your assets value and how hard your money is working.

To become financially independent you need to build a cash machine by growing a substantial asset base of high growth properties. These are the steps you take.

1.       Build your asset base

2.       Transition to lower loan to value ratios

3.       Start living off your property portfolio

In my mindset moment, I chat with best-selling author Tom Corley about a study that concluded that we are hardwired to be miserable.
