Drawing from Stephen Covey’s book and as promised in the previous episode (Exit Strategy in Property Investment), this week our hosts talk about the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Property Investors. Some of our listeners have asked us before about having the right mindset when investing in property and this episode sort of ties in with that. Bryce and Ben lists out the seven habits that Dr. Covey talks about and explains how we can use it in property investment.
The first habit is to be proactive. As Bryce mentioned in the podcast, you won’t achieve Financial Freedom unless you take a step forward to make it happen. It is not going to happen by osmosis or by default. You need to get off your chair, overcome some conditioning and take action. Bryce and Ben will also be sharing some of the stories from the own personal journey as an investor and an advisor. Listen to the podcast to find out more.

This week on The Property Couch podcast, Bryce and Ben talk about planning ahead and have an Exit Strategy when investing in property. As Stephen Covey once said, “Begin with the End in Mind”. We think this concept can be applied to property investors as well.
Now, there are a few exit strategies out there and as we’ve always emphasized, each household is unique and hence each investor’s exit strategy would be different. But generally, there are two main categories; either you buy and sell or you buy and hold. Under these categories, there are sub-categories and different scenarios where it’ll suit you better. Bryce and Ben will be discussing about these exit strategies today so make sure you tune in!
Also, the Money Magazine Cover Story that we have been talking about is out. Grab one off the Newsstand today and let us know what you think!

There is a high chance that when you are looking to buy an investment property, you would already have a few factors to consider. This time on The Property Couch Podcast, Bryce Holdaway and Ben Kingsley discuss about these factors and how it can be a framework or rather the Science of Asset Selection which they called: The Buyer’s Decision Quadrant.
The whole concept is quite simple and most investors would have gone through this decision quadrant in one way or another. But the secret is understanding which part of the quadrant can be compromised and which part is absolutely non-negotiable. One thing to bear in mind is; finding an investment property that fits all the pieces of the quadrant is really slim and most of the time, you would need to compromise slightly. Listen to the podcast to find out more.
Also, The Property Couch is hoping to get nominated for the Investor’s Choice Award 2015 for the category: Property Educator/Mentor.
