EP 016: Unexpected Challenges of Being a Property Investor (Part 1)

Whether it be property, business, or life…

I’m sure you’ve had some unexpected challenges along the way.

Just speaking personally here,

Sometimes I’ll do a stupid thing without knowing it

And then, all of a sudden, it clicks as to just how stupid it is.

I realised that what I was doing was working against me.


What I found out is that if I was careful,
This can happen in my property investing too.

Property can be such a complex field…

And it can be incredibly easy to get caught out by something you weren’t expecting.

Now, here’s a quick tip for anyone who hasn’t applied for finance yet…

And one that I bet stumps a lot of new investors…


Banks aren’t as organised and professional as you’d think.

Now, if you are like me,
You’d probably assume that being publicly listed companies,

That has been around for hundreds of years…

Surely they have a system you can rely on

Well, I wouldn’t bet on it.

In cases like this,

It’s important to know about it beforehand and be able to prepare for these challenges

And it would be best if you know them before you sign an unconditional contract 🤷‍♂️

Which may risk losing your deposit due to a slow bank application 😳

But… don’t worry.

In this week’s podcast episode, Grant and I address the most unexpected challenges we have faced in property investing…
