Why is it that when people decide to make a residential property investment that they allow their emotions to make their decisions for them? We allow pure emotion to dictate the area, the price and our perception of potential growth to make one of the biggest financial decisions we are likely to make in our lives for us.
Yes, it is nice to know that you are buying in a good area and that the property has all of the trimmings we are looking for, but we forget that this is still an investment decision which will have a great impact on our financial future and forget completely that an incorrect decision when it comes to investing in a residential property could have catastrophic implications on our financial future.
Would it not be better to detach emotion from the investment and actually run the potential investment through proven and accurate systems and principles before we make this investment decision so as to be able to be sure that our investment decision is sustainable and in our own financial interest before we make the decision?
Luckily there are such systems and principles available which can help us to make these important investment decisions and if used correctly we will be able to know the financial impact of our decisions before actually committing to any signed agreements. By taking the time to do this we will greatly reduce the chances that we will loose this investment and all the money which we have committed to it when market conditions decide to take a turn for the worse.
I am a great believer in the fact that we should invest in ourselves first before making any other investment decisions, in other words we need to put in the time and effort so as to educate ourselves as to what the best and most sustainable way is to make the investment decision which could greatly impact on our lives financially and believe me when I say in many other areas as well.
A sound investment is an informed investment, whether it is in residential property, commercial property or in the stock market, if you have not taken the time to invest in yourself so as to hold control of your investment in your own hands, chances are stacked against you and failure is a huge reality.
