Why do I need an adviser to help me with my real estate investment?

If you are just getting started with your first real estate investment, you might be wondering about whether or not you should speak with an adviser to help you through the process.

Granted, we may be a little biased, but at Goodlife, we firmly believe that the right advice is crucial if you plan to make a successful, stable and long-term real estate investment.

Read on for our top three reasons why you should consider working with a trusted adviser.

Remove the emotion

Buying an investment property in New Zealand is a lot different than buying a home to live in.

When you're tempted to follow your heart, rather than your head, your adviser can help you consider the situation practically and weigh up your options so you make a sound financial choice.

Eyes on the future

Anyone who says that investing in real estate should be a get-rich-quick scheme is lying – the best property investments should be considered with long-term stability in mind.

An experienced and trustworthy adviser can help you calculate what your investment property is currently worth and how it will make money for you in the future, and can set out a plan to grow your wealth at a steady, sustainable pace.

Knowledge and experience

We recognise that most investors – especially first-time investors – are busy people! When you enlist the services of a trusted adviser, you benefit firsthand from their insider knowledge of the Hamilton and Auckland real estate markets, as well as their financial skill.

Your adviser can help you make your investment property as tax efficient as possible and can also ensure that you have the information you need to make financial decisions that work with your circumstances.

Here's to your financial independence!
