First, let’s look at the most basic type of property investing program you can go for: rental properties investment. This is a classic type wherein you buy a property and rent it out to a tenant. You can either become the landlord or hire someone to do it for you. As the owner of the rental property, you’re responsible for paying the mortgage, taxes, and maintenance costs for the property. Ideally, you can charge more than these expenses so that you can have a monthly profit. However, most investors practice patience and charge just enough rental fees to their tenants. Once the mortgage has been paid, the entire rental fee becomes their profit — which could be more beneficial financially in the long run.

Finding the right property is crucial. You want to find a property that will give you cash in your pocket each week whilst also growing at an above market rate. An increase in market value can allow you to either realise this gain by selling or refinancing your loan to unlock the equity to use for further investing.
