When is the best time to invest in property?

Investors tend to ask

* When is the right time to invest in property?
*When to invest in the property market?
*Timing the property market?
*When should I invest in property?
*When to invest in the property market?

So, when is the best time to invest in a Property?

You may have similiar questions and are wondering what the answer may be, yes?

The old adage “the best time to invest in property was yesterday, and today is the second best time!”

Followed by “It is not timing the market that works; it is HOW LONG you spend in the market that counts.”

Both, based on experience are thoroughly accurate.

However if you are asking this still, the questions becomes : “what has stopped you investing in a property to date, and what is stopping you now, knowing that property is a 7 – 10 year investment vehicle, and in any given 10 year period, property values have always increased in value?

Perhaps it is your emotions that keeps preventing you from investing, always looking for that comfort feel in making that challenged decision. Yes?

Another life lesson is “whenever one applies emotion into any investment decision, you are guaranteeing yourself a lower return on investment or a failure to take action.”

Principal of Economics

When demand outstrips supply in any commodity, that is when all market indicators demonstrate that the commodity pricing will increase!

In Australia, the ‘perfect storm‘ has already hit – supply is completely undersupplied, yet demand is on the rise on the back of population growth. And this perfect storm is worsening.

Vacancy rates are tighter than they have ever been in history of the Australian Property market, forcing Rent upwards for your tenants.

Low Supply + High and Increasing Demand + Low Vacancies + Increasing Rental Yields.

Does this help you identify the ‘perfect storm’ scenario which is your investment opportunity?

This is an investors opportunity = Your OPPORTUNITY

The time to invest remains now
