We did not listen to the experts!
Written on the 21 February 2018 by James CagneyThe writing is on the wall. The "Bust" which has been predicted by many of the leading financial experts for some time is here. However, like Lemming falling over the cliff by their thousands, investors have ignored the signs. It's a cycle and each phase in the Boom-Bubble-Bust is inevitable. Harry Dent who is one of the leading experts predicted this Bust would happen. He also predicted the fall of Crypto currencies but investors preferred to listened to the pundits who had an invested interest in people rushing to buy. For more information on Harry Dent's predictions for 2018 and beyond click >>> DENT .
The seasoned investors know that when everybody is rushing to invest in any market and making huge profits - it is time to make an exit. People were making huge profits on Bit-coins and all my friends and colleagues were telling me to buy NOW. Yes, many of them made short term gains but more of them have lost money. The experts were warning about an overheated market and looming government regulations regarding these Crypto Currenciess - and yet people ignored their advice . The mind boggles!

I encourage my clients to not fall for "Quick buck schemes" but to formulate a strategy to "Get rich slowly and securely" strategy. I have never been a gambler or risk taker because I do not want to see my money disappear like sand through a bucket full of holes. I have worked too hard and long to create wealth.
That is why I concentrate on property. Warren Buffet said " Diversification is a protection against ignorance. It makes little seance for those who know what they are doing." He is a successful investor and multi, multi millionaire. Why do people think they know more than he does? I took his advice and I focus extensively on the property market so can know what I am doing. I do not run after every fad and scheme that comes across my path - no matter how much money they all tell me I can make.
Last year I covered the Sydney and Melbourne property market extensively. I did my research and I followed the advice of leading experts in the market. I do not believe in reinventing the wheel. This year I will cover the other capital cities starting with Brisbane.
I will also cover the regional property market in NSW in 2018. The reason for this is property prices are substantially less allowing investors to enter the market and allowing investors to increase their property portfolios. Investors in these regional areas can not expect the unprecedented growth that Sydney and Melbourne has had over the past few years. Investors can expect to make between 5% to10% growth per year in many of these areas. Rental returns in these regional centres are often 5% and higher and tenants tend to remain longer.
