Find Out How Many Properties You Need in 2 Minutes, Even If You’re Not a Math Wizard

by | May 20, 2020

It’s a question as a property investor you’ve probably asked yourself.. “How many investment properties should I own?”

This is an absolute must-have conversation with yourself before you start investing.

Figuring out how many investment properties you should own underpins your future decision making. 

It starts with these 3 questions…

What are your needs?

What are your wants?

What are your dreams?

Do you know your numbers?

Let’s figure out how many investment properties you should own:

Step 1: Pick how much income you want every year in retirement 

Step 2: Assume a gross rental yield (anywhere between 3-6% is standard) 

Step 3: Divide income by rental yield 

This will give you the amount of money you should have invested in property. 

It’s then up to you to use this figure and work out how many properties you should own. 

Scenario 1

You want to retire on $100,000 per year 

Let’s assume average rent of 5% across your property portfolio. 

You would need $2,000,000 in properties. 

You will need 2-4 debt-free properties by the time you retire.

Scenario 2

You want to retire on $200,000 per year 

Once again average rent assumed at 5% across your property portfolio. 

You would need a property portfolio of at least $4,000,000. 

This would equate to at least 6 debt-free investment properties.  

Understanding these numbers, what they mean and how they help lay the foundation to create a positive cash-flow property portfolio is the one thing all successful investors do.

This will ultimately result in your success as a property investor. 

We will take you through this exercise and how to work out your numbers to get started, at our upcoming Property Investor Masterclass Webinar.

It may seem scary out there at the moment, but now is the best time to get education and support around the massive opportunities we have as investors, at our fingertips.

You’ll be able to ask them any question you want and it’s a free event!
