How property investing changed my life

By Sarah Megginson | 10 Jan 2019

People invest in property for dozens of different reasons. The main goal is generally to make a profit, obviously, but sometimes, somewhere along the way, real estate can deliver life lessons of a totally different kind.

When disaster strikes, for instance, your real estate goals and plans can pale into insignificance. Who cares about yields and adding value through renovations when there are genuine health concerns to worry about, right?

This was the exact situation that Sara and Heath Crawford found themselves in a few years ago, when their baby Piper fell suddenly and gravely ill. Property investors around a decade into their journey, Sara and her husband were devastated when their little girl was diagnosed with a rare and life-threatening form of epilepsy.

Sara hasn’t returned to work since the day Piper was whisked off in an ambulance – but thanks to the sale of a profitable property investment, the family hasn’t had to endure any additional financial stress as a result.

Theirs is one of several stories we feature in this Special Report, which highlight the many ways that investing in real estate can seriously transform your life for the better.

It’s not just about buying shiny, fancy new toys, cars and homes – although those things are very nice to have. It’s about creating the financial freedom you need to adapt, survive and thrive, no matter what curveballs life throws at you. That is the power of property investing!
