Where to start if you are looking for property investment seminars in Melbourne
It’s the great Australian dream. To own your house and have enough financial power to also be able to buy an investment property or two. As the property market grows over time, so too does your personal wealth and your retirement income.
Figures from the Australian Taxation Office show that around eight percent of Australians have succeeded in achieving the dream and have bought or have a share in an investment property. A lucky 1.5 percent of the population had two investment properties, while 0.5 percent had two!
What does it take to join their ranks? And how do you join the super elite ranks of the multiple property owners and really secure your financial future?
Investing in ‘distressed property’ is a great way to start. In a nutshell, this involves identifying properties that for one reason or another are being sold at below the market rate, negotiating a great sale price, and then reselling later at a higher price to generate a profit. Successful distressed property ‘flippers’ can own multiple properties at any given time, using the profits from the last sale to finance future purchases in an ongoing wealth-generation cycle.
Property investment seminars are a great way to find out about the potential of this type of investment. You’ll meet successful distressed property investors, hear their success stories and acquire some of the skills needed to potentially get started yourself.
Founded by the wealth and asset protection expert Dominique Grubisa, the DG Institute offers a range of property investment seminars in Melbourne aimed both at complete novices and those with some experience ‘flipping’ residential properties. All levels of interest and availability are catered for, with seminars running from two hours to three days and beyond.
