Is Creating A Successful Property Portfolio Important?
Are you seeing many of your friends, neighbours or our fellow Singaporean and PR who are building their property portfolio by either upgrading their current property or multiplying their properties into 2 or 3?
Why are they doing that? isn't it very Risky and Stressful ?
Me and my wife are like most of the Singaporean, we started with a HDB. And at that point of time, we work very hard because we only want to quickly clear off all my loans to be debt free. But I realise one thing, by doing this, I will only be trading off all my time and need to work very hard for the money.
I'm glad to have many opportunities in my real estate career to learn from all my investors and mentors on how can I effectively build my property portfolio with a safe and systematic way. We manage to own Two private properties at the age of 34.
Being an investor myself, I started to be more sensitive to the property market movement, statistics and most importantly, STRATEGIES!
Are you aware, there are total 3 important key reason to determine should you start investing in property?
The Last thing we want, is to miss the Golden Opportunity Right?
Be The Last Sandwich Generation
The Sandwich Generation is a generation of people (usually in their 40s to 70s) who care for their aging parents while supporting their own children. Becoming a part of the Sandwich Generation can affect your financial status.
Members of the Sandwich Generation are not alone, though. Millions of other households are going through this same scenario.Today, many members of the Sandwich Generation are working hard to make sure that they will be the last Sandwich Generation.
Plan For Retirement
Retirement planning is the most important financial aspect in one’s life.Life is full of complexity, everyone is busy with their lives. Individuals don't have time to plan and they take it too easy. Adulthood is indeed an important stage in a person’s life, so it is necessary to plan for the future.
While talking about retirement to some people may sounds very long distance. But one thing for sure is, time flies. Much of a time when we look back, things seem like happened just yesterday. So the question i will always ask myself, how much do i need to have a quality retirement life? i wouldn't want a circuit breaker retirement life for sure.
To maintain a decent lifestyle so that you will not compromise on the quality of life after retirement, and continue to live the way you are now. In order to have this, you need to start preparing. By looking at the chart above, at which stage should you start preparing for your funds? Definitely you can't start preparing when you are in your 60s.
Do you know to Retire at the age of 65 and live until the age of 85 with $4000 income per month. How much you need to have in your saving?
The ANSWER is $960,000
Saving and investing early will be your Trump card which can be used later on in life. Investing early is smart work. Lets take alook at this example:
Mr and Mrs John upgraded their property portfolio in 1995, at the age of 35, their monthly mortgage repayment is only $3258. 24 years later, at the age of 59, their property valued at $2.63m. With only a monthly saving of $3258, today they can easily cash out more than $2million dollars and retire.
Do you know what happen if they delay their plans? At the age of 59yrs old, even if the price remain at $1.18 million, their monthly mortgage will be $13,000. This is because of their age with a shorter tenure. And most of the time, people will shelve their plans and forego their goals.
Yes, one of the key reasons is OPTIONS. Looking at the chart below, imagine you had purchased a unit in The Panorama in year 2014, and with the savings and the profits you have today in this purchase. There are plenty of options that you can explore.
For example, you can choose to retire in a HDB with the amount of funds you have in your assets. Or you can cash out the funds for other investments or business expansion. You can also cash it out for some immediate use like children education cost or medical cost etc...... Basically you created options for your future, compare to no option.
To me, I think one of the most important reason is also to create Extra Income to meet all the key reason above. That is how we can allow our money to work for us using OPM(other people money) system right? Many investors are concern what if their investment doesn't make money? Are you having this burning question as well?
Let's look at the example above, by getting a $4,000 rental, this is separated into three portions, the interest portion will be going to the bank and the other two portion will go into your pocket(your Piggy Bank/Saving Bank).Let's say that we are holding this investment for 5 years, and we sell the property back at $1million,are you aware that your Return of Equity is 72%? And it works out to 14.4% per annum. Which bank gives us such returns?
Purchasing a right product will allow your money to work hard for you, purchasing a wrong product, we will have to work hard for money. Therefore, property can be an Asset to you or a LIABILITIES.
There is an opportunity in every crisis and the deeper the crisis, the better the opportunity can be. But some people are not capable of seeing it.
