Interested in property investing?

Thinking about dipping your toe into the property investment pool? There are a multitude of questions you may have, from how to begin investing in property, what deposit is required, if you can afford it, what type of property is best to buy, and how to find tenants - there’s a lot to consider.

 The difference between an investment property and your own home is that you earn an income from the investment property. Any financial returns from property investment come from rental income and from any increase in the value of property over time, which is called capital gains. An investment property has the potential to provide solid results and returns for you, growing your capital and generating income.
