How to achieve Work/Life Balance through Property Investment

Many of us think about work-life balance like it is some kind of a holy grail; we journey on a continuous quest for it, we know it’s there, but somehow it hides from us. Few people realise (and some may even disagree), it’s often how you make your income and what you do with it that is the key to achieving balance.

That is exactly why bricks and mortar is such an attractive investment. In my experience, property investing is the most leveraged business when it comes to time and money. Property can create income and growth passively. Investment properties can produce good income and capital growth over the long term and you only need to put in a few hours per month to manage it. Not many other jobs or businesses can do that.

 

The reality for many successful property investors is that having a few investment properties often creates more wealth than they could ever achieve from a lifetime of saving, even if they are high-salary earners.

Earning a salary from a typical nine-to-five job gives you money to live day to day, but as soon as you stop work, sadly, so does your income. The key to being able to create work-life balance, or to be able to take a career break, is to have money behind you so that there are no financial pressures when you stop working. The easiest way to do this is to leverage and invest your income while you’re earning and to put it into something that will create passive income or lump-sum cash in the future.

The reason why many people fear property investing is the amount of perceived debt and risk involved. Successful investors understand the true pros and cons of investing and learn to develop good risk management strategies. Good strategies might include holding large cash buffers or fixing rates. With so many different types of property investing strategies out there, the key is to find the lowest risk path.

Many people retire with all their wealth saved in one family home – not money they have saved from a salaried job. Doesn’t it make sense to buy more now, while you’re still earning, and use your increased wealth to enjoy life now rather than wait 30 years to pay off your home and have a holiday?

I watch people who make the commitment now to start investing before they retire and it is exciting to see the freedom and impact it has on their lives in later years.

If you buy good property investments in the first place, your property should grow over the long term. With the additional equity, you can:

  • pay the difference between the rent and mortgage, so you don’t have to support your investments with your wages
  • reinvest in more appreciating assets
  • take a well-earned rest, extended maternity leave, or work part-time
  • afford the odd luxury you couldn’t previously afford on your wages.

Investing is a serious business involving large amounts of money so make sure you do your research and then check your strategy with a qualified accountant, mortgage broker and financial planner, all of which should be property investors too. If they make money from investing themselves, they should be better placed to help you do the same.
