A Wealthy Life

Episode 63: When is the Wrong Time to Invest in Property?


When is the wrong time to invest in property? Is there a wrong time? I’ll answer these questions boldly in this week’s episode of A Wealthy Life. 


While I cover the history of investing, I’ll illuminate some of the realities of the UK housing market. In investment terms, I’ll define scarcity for you and how it gets checked by affordability. I’ll detail the dynamics behind the housing shortage in the UK. I’ll tell you all about the “rise of the private landlord” that happened during the 90’s to early 2000’s and how it led to the buy-to-let market becoming a major player in property. I’ll tell you why prices are going to rise and why there will always be a strong rental market. 


I’ll impress upon you that you need to understand your own affordability–How long can you afford to tie your money up in a property? Are you content with the revenue that property will generate? You’ll see that the timing of your property investment journey depends upon your own, individual circumstances. I’ll finish by reminding you that property is a long term investment.
