On the hunt for a new investment property? Hoping to secure finance at a great rate so you can be on your way to property-mogul status?
Real estate can be full of unfamiliar terms. There are covenants, conveyancing and even conjunctions. A relatively new term on the property scene however is rentvesting, which admittedly doesn't start with a "c". It's becoming more popular by the day, but the question remains what is it and does it suit every investor?
Do you know the difference between a successful investor and one who fails before they even begin?
Many first-time investors stay just that way – one-time-only buyers, who never progress beyond having that one solo property in their portfolio.
Investors must be smart about applying value-adding strategies properly.
