Real Estate Investment Basics

Capital gains or cashflow? Buy now or later? Go floating or fixed on interest rates…interest only or principle and interest – These are some of the most basic questions about property investing, yet so many people have no clue about most of these things.

The Real Estate Investment Basics course will teach you all the basics without all the fluff and the falacy of conventional wisdom – which is DOWNRIGHT BULL S**T anyway.

Property Investing: Outcomes

Outcomes are the most essential aspect of our courses. We have no interest in selling courses online that do not drive action – it is against our core mission.

Anyone that completes this course will walk away with clear, concise and actionable information that will help them understand how the property market works.

The objective of this course is to help you recognize which aspect of real estate investing is best suited for you. Once you know the basics of property investing, how things work, the risk factors, the rewards and the amount of work involved, you will be able to select the appropriate specialist module, be it SMART Renovator, SMART Portfolio or SMART Developer.

Key Highlights

This is by far one of the most essential parts of the course. Here, you will learn the key dynamics and what drives the Real Estate industry.

Knowing how the logistics work in terms of getting a deal done is an important aspect of acquiring the basic knowledge of becoming a real estate investor.

From signing the sale and purchase agreement to getting the keys in your hand. Its all covered in this section.

Given that buying a property for your own use or investing in one is by far the most expensive monetary transaction most people will ever undertake in their lifetime, it is only fitting that you know the legalities of this before entering into such a transaction.

There’s absolutely no point in engaging in any training if you have no intention of executing with intent and swift action.

This section talks about putting it all in perspective in terms of what’s involved in executing a real estate transaction from start to finish.
