Long-term Strategy

Strategic questions & issues to define your long term goal

Investment Property is a Business. All successful property investors have a “recipe” or business plan that they follow and review over time. There is an old saying “Businesses never plan to fail, they fail to plan”.

Some key issues include:

What is your goal and over what period of time do you plan to be a Property Investor?

Clarification of this goal and the period over which you plan to achieve it will help you to calculate the necessary steps along the way to achieving your goal.

What are your core skills and competencies and what are you not good at?

How much spare time do you have?

Investments and businesses generally share 2 common and simple ingredients – the more time and effort invested, the better quality the return.

What type of tenants do you want to deal with?

The quality of your property usually determines the quality of your tenants and the quality of your tenants will always affect the return on your business. Please visit the Department of Building and Housing for more information.

  • Testimonials

    Finlay’s contribution to my wife and I being able to build the family home we wanted for our family cannot be underestimated. His involvement meant that finances were simply not a worry. Finlay gives me great confidence that I have the best deal available and that I will continue to get the best deal available as the mortgage market changes over time. Rob O’Brien – Solicitor

    Finlay has been the financial cornerstone of my business for many years now. Without his knowledge and experience the capacity to grow my business would have been made considerably more difficult. He has always provided outstanding financial service to me and anyone who I have recommended him to. I hold his advice in the highest regard and look forward to working with him as my business continues to grow. Conwae Langford, Director – Bluekey Properties Ltd
