Is The Secret To Becoming A Millionaire Property Investor – A Small Cycle?

I am a successful Property Investor. And the one thing that I know is that timing your entry and exit in a property market is a key element to becoming a successful investor.

All markets are cyclical. Therefore, if you understand the cycle, you are in a great position to take advantage of the opportunities. Typically, markets will have a bottom, then the expansion stage, the peak, and then the market will contract and then the cycle repeats.

Property Market Cycle

The eagle eyed property investor is always looking to invest either at the end of a recession, the bottom, the recovery, or expansion stage whilst looking to realise profits by selling or via the release of equity during the expansion and peak stages.

Investing in property when the window of opportunity is opened, gives the investor the greatest opportunity to maximise his return on investment or return on his money.

Now unfortunately, too many of us spend too much time listening to the Jones’s. If you were to ask Mr Jones today about investing in property, he would probably say something like this:

“Are you mad?! Can’t you see the whole world is falling apart; we won’t have food to eat or beds to sleep in – Haven’t you heard about the great big Red Martian that is coming to earth, that’s going to eat us all up!”

And what happens? We postpone our decision to invest. A few years later when we are at the top of the market, you ask Mr Jones the same question, and this time he tells you about the property millionaires that he has seen in papers and on the TV and this is the time to invest!

What Mr Jones does not realise is that the Property Millionaires that he is reading about are not investing in property at the peak; they had already made their investment during the bottom, recovery or expansion stage of the market – in the window of opportunity.

Instead of listening to the Jones’s, I think it is far better to listen to Mr Warren Buffet; the greatest investor of all time and one of the richest men on Earth. He quotes:

“Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful.”

In the world today, we have so many uncertainties and many of us are so fearful. This window of opportunity is a short one and when it closes, the wait is a long one.

You see, statistically – we enter a major recession or downturn every 18-20 years. Now that is very long time. However, you and I are standing in that window of opportunity today – this is our moment.

If you have been thinking about investing in property to create financial freedom, so that you can spend more time doing the things that you are passionate about and have the financial independence to really enjoy life – – then, this is your moment.

The time to invest in property is now.
