If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It

This age old saying in the vernacular also works with mortgages. But why? Fixed interest rates on a home loan are often higher than variable rates, but it’s all dependant on the global bond market. Fixed rates are funded by the global bond markets, meaning the bank...

How Many Property Booms Have You Missed So Far?

You can count them on this graph.Personally, I haven’t missed any since 1998. Can you guess why that is? The reason is because I bought my first property in 1998, so I’ve had my toe in the water ever since then. Sure, there have been a couple of slower periods in that...

Are You Positive that You’re Negative?

To Be or Not To Be……….a Rent-vestor.

It seems it was easier back in the olden days. Remember back when you were a kid? More to the point, remember back when I was a kid, back in the 60s and 70s. You either rented or you bought your own home. It seemed that there were only the privileged few who could...

What would you do?

Would you sit around procrastinating?

 

 

For Example, how many people do you think would wish they could do time over again? I mean, that happens now and the world isn’t ending any time soon…………….that I know of. Then again, 2020 is happening isn’t it?

How about doing 2019 over again? If you had that time again you could get 2020’s holiday in before 2020 hit us and laid us all flat.

Well, that’s how the human mind works isn’t it? We usually never “get around to it” until it’s too late. What if we looked into our crystal ball and saw that Kim Jung-un is finally going to blow the world up next year? We’d all go crazy trying to think of what we want to do before the final curtain comes down. It’s easy to look at things in hindsight and come up with all sorts of excuses for not doing things when we should have.

So tell me, what’s stopping you doing all those things now? Any good excuses pop up just now? Don’t worry, if you keep “waiting for the right time”, or for “things to pick up in the market”, then in about 5-10 years you’ll be able to tell all your friends and family how you wish you had bought that house way back then……but never did. You’ll be the expert on that subject.

Here’s a great life hack for you to try. Think of a small job you’ve got around the house, that you never quite get to. Write the main words on a post-it note and put it on the bathroom mirror. When you wash your hands, have a shave or brush your hair, it’ll be right there to remind you, every time!

I’m betting that job will get done. That’s called writing down your goals. Just writing it down cements the process in your own mind. You should be doing that with the major goals in your life as well. For these larger and more important goals, write down the end goal, the plan to achieve that goal and also all the smaller goals that you need to accomplish along the way. If you do that, there is every chance that the smaller achievements along the way will lead to attaining the major life goal.

Go and get a post-it note and write down

“Buy our own home.”
