Helen Collier-Kogtevs is the Managing Director of Real Wealth Australia, a leading education and mentoring company for real estate investors. Not only is she a highly successful property investor and an educator, but also a best-selling author, and a philanthropist.
Helen is particularly passionate about helping people, especially people who are keen to create wealth and make a difference in their lives, and she has been mentoring thousands of new and experienced investors in their pursuit of wealth creation through property.
She founded Real Wealth Australia to mentor investors create wealth and financial freedom by focusing on helping them build an investment strategy to fit their individual goals, rather than focusing on one particular investing method using her successful “10 Properties in 10 Years™” system.
Real estate cycles come and go, but one fact always remains true: property investing is an inexact science.
My apologies, self-employed people, but you’re risky, unreliable, seasonably variable and sometimes a little fuzzy with your paperwork. Or at least, that’s what a lender will say when you walk in the door asking for a loan.
Key to your successful strategy is optimising your finances. Consulting with an independent financial advisor and a mortgage broker is your best bet for working out the optimal setup for your situation, but I want to give you some ideas to help you get started.
Do you know what the most expensive advice you can get is? It’s the advice you get from a poor person – and more often than not, they’re happy to dish it out thick and fast.
Do you feel ready to invest in property, financially and mentally, but for whatever reason, you can’t seem to pull the trigger? I have seen ‘analysis paralysis’ stop dozens of would-be investors from buying into fantastic opportunities, because they have over-analysed a deal and ultimately talked themselves out of it.
