Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show that even though around 70% of households are home owners, only 21% or around one in five households own a property other than their own home.

The reality is that most people dream of becoming a millionaire and over the years I have met many people who have become millionaires through property investment. In fact, more millionaires make their millions through property than any other investment vehicle.

In my career I have found that successful property millionaires adopt a professional approach to investing. They do not achieve their success through luck.

This is a theme which was revealed by one of the largest studies of millionaires who have created wealth themselves. The study in the USA was undertaken by Dr Thomas J Stanley and his findings were published in a book called ‘Millionaires Mind.’

The study of more than 1,000 millionaires found that some of the key attributes they shared on their journey to becoming a self-made millionaire included:

• They did not follow the crowd mentality
• They prepare and plan to succeed
• Most acted on economic opportunity that others just ignored and have
   willingness to take financial risk.
• Tend to buy homes when others are selling
• Focus energy to maximize the return on effort
• Think of success, not failure

Creating wealth through investing clearly comes from developing a very positive a state of mind and professional approach to investing this is underlined by a by-line in the book:

"Others can stop you temporarily, but only you can do it permanently."

Crawford Realty is helping a growing number of people to become property millionaires by assisting them to take a professional approach to property investing.

Rather than just owning one investment property, our clients have accumulated a portfolio of high capital growth/high rental yielding homes, to create large, passive income earning portfolios.

You can read some of their success stories on our website like such as Evelyn Thomas who has now a property portfolio valued at over $2 million or Katie Joy who is now retired at a young age with a property portfolio of more than $4 million.

Both Katie, Evelyn and the many other clients we have helped to become property millionaires are ordinary people who earned average wages before embarking on their path to becoming professional property investors.

Instead of buying negatively geared properties like most investors in Australia, all of these people seized the opportunity of buying positively geared properties through our company after undertaking careful research.

Their courage is now being fully rewarded and I hope their success stories will inspire other people to follow in their footsteps.

    When the demand for resources goes away so does the demand for housing in mining communities like Port Hedland. So what happens when you are left with an over leveraged asset that starts depreciating and no one wants to buy it. Yes I too have made millions from investing in real estate in mining communities where the mining company pays huge rents, but I have sold a big portion of them when everyone is buying and received a top return and re-invested my assets in liquid assets so that I can be ahead of the curve and get my cash out easier. What you are selling or promoting is flawed, will not last and end in tears. Its not rocket science what these property millionaires have done...its more right place right time and they think they are experts. Time will tell and they will fall a lot faster than they rose.
