Property Suitability Guide

When looking to establish a property’s suitability, there is a lot to consider, and you should be diligent at this stage and do your research thoroughly. In general, you are looking into the implications of how much investment is needed, be it immediate or future investment for a given property.

We’ll provide below the guide, checklists & tips on what you should be looking for and considering; however, consider that, as mentioned in the book, regardless of your approach, strategy and long-term plan, which in turn will determine what model and type of property you buy.

Determine where and how much time you’re spending on tasks and how much ‘available’ time you have to work on your property business. Gain a visual look at where your time really goes. You may be surprised!?

So once you’ve factored your time let’s talk capital, and see what you can contribute to your property investing. As they say every little helps.

Tenancy Pre-Viewing

Generating enquiries is only the first step of filling your vacant property, and it’s definitely NOT the most important step.
