Your First Property Investment - Avoid these Mistakes

If you are buying or investing in your first property investment, have you noticed everyone else is suddenly an expert and wants to share their experiences and advice with you? They’re the first to say “When I was buying my first investment property I did this” or “my first investment property was like that.” This is all good and well, but rarely do people tell you what ‘not’ to do and there are a handful of common mistakes many investors make on their first property investment. These mistakes can be costly and often result in investors failing to build their portfolio beyond one or two properties.
