There are three components to a High Performance Property…

  • It offers positive cashflow from day one
  • There’s potential to add value
  • It offers high capital growth

It seems so simple when it’s laid out like that…

But…

the truth is that there are a lot of little red flags that you need to watch out for when searching for an investment property…

Each of these suggest that the property’s not a good fit for your portfolio:

Red Flag # 1 – The Numbers Don’t Add Up

Buying below market value is a great way to kick start your investment.

However, that’s not all there is…

You need to go deep on the numbers to ensure that you are getting the right value, but also that you’re going to achieve net positive cashflow from day one. 

If the numbers don’t add up to help you do that, there’s something wrong…

Some sellers just won’t budge on their price, even if it’s too high for the location.

If that’s the case, don’t pursue the investment any further.

That’s especially the case if the property’s been on the market for a while…

That tells you the market knows something that the seller doesn’t.

Red Flag # 2 – The Economy Doesn’t Look Great

The economy has a huge impact on property prices, particular in regards to buyer demand. 

A contracting economy means there are fewer jobs…

That means that people can’t afford to buy so demand goes down.

Look at the vacancy rate to get a good idea of how the economy’s doing- 

The higher the rate, the less attractive the area is for investment…

Red Flag # 3 – Low Asset Quality

Some TV shows make flipping a property seem so simple…

You buy something rundown, improve it, and sell it for a massive profit… 

But it’s rarely that simple. 

Steer Away From a Property Investment

It’s a much better strategy to find a property that’s in good condition and offers immediate owner-occupier appeal… 

It’s always best to buy for positive cashflow from day one.
