What most property investors will do, and continue to do..
Despite all the information available, most investors and investment
advisors will continue to put their money into ‘old faithful’ –
the 4 bed family home.
Even though 76% of people searching for rental accommodation are single or couples, the standard
property investor adds another dwelling to the property market that doesn’t match what the market wants.
Most investors will put their money into a space that doesn’t get fully utilised and doesn’t maximise the
area in which they could potentially commercialise.
Many will utilise negative gearing as a strategy too however many investors don’t realise that negative

Most investors will think they are taking the safe option
of investing in a 4 bed standard home.
