Increased rates? It’s time to smarten up your investment strategy

Posted by Paul Wilson

With the banks upping interest rates for property investors, it’s time to relook at your investment strategy.

There has been a lot of media hype around the changing interest rates for investors, causing many to become fearful.

But you shouldn’t take your advice from the headlines.

Now is the time to take stock, acknowledge the changes and figure out how to work with them.

Below are three steps to take in regards to the changing investment landscape:

1. Understand your strategy and where you need to adjust it

It’s important to understand exactly how the interest rate changes will affect your situation.

Will the changes affect your ability to make repayments or could they reduce the value of your investment? Will the changes affect you at all?

The first step you must take is to identify any issues and then what, if anything, needs to change.

2. Go back to basics and adjust your strategy to accommodate the changes

Once you’ve identified the affect on your investment and what needs to change, you can adjust your strategy accordingly.

Go back to the principles of investing to find a firm foundation.

If you don’t know how to go about doing this, you should find someone who can help navigate you through.

A simple modification to your strategy could result in a more sound investment and possibly even open up new opportunities.

3. Take advantage of the new opportunities that come your way

With any change comes the chance for new opportunities - what may look like a dire situation could turn out to be very profitable.

If you can go back to basics and work with the new investment landscape there will be new opportunities that open up.

If you need some help adjusting your strategy or taking hold of new opportunities, enlist the help of a property investment specialist.

There is no reason to fear the changes to the investment landscape.

Instead, look at the changes as an opportunity to refine your strategy and enhance your investment.
