I bought a fancy $200,000 house in the suburbs of Brisbane and rented it out.
I paid $10,000 per week, which was about what I was paying to rent a house in Sydney.
I had $30,000 invested in the house.
I was told it would be worth about $300,000, which would have been a nice cash flow.
The house did not live up to my expectations.
But what if I had done more research and invested a little more?
My house’s market value fell by $200k, but it was worth more to me.
But I would have had to sell the house for a profit, and that would have put a massive dent in my $20,000 investment.
This article focuses on the way in which investment decisions can affect the return to investment and the impact of these decisions on earnings, but there are a lot of important points to make about investing and investing decisions.
It is tempting to invest because of the return you can expect, but this is not always the case.
In some cases, the return will be low.
In others, the money will be very low.
I would like to explain why this is.
If I invest in a stock, I will expect a return of about 2 per cent.
So if the return is less than that, I am more likely to leave money on the table.
But if I invest into a commodity or technology, I expect a rate of return that is 10 per cent, or even more.
This may not sound like much, but if I were to invest in technology that was 20 years away, I would expect to receive about 25 per cent of the expected return.
I could buy that technology and pay down the price later.
If, however, I invest with an expectation of a high return, I may be better off investing in a commodity.
If you look at the history of stocks and commodities over the last 50 years, there is a very clear correlation between the return on stocks and the price of those stocks.
If prices were low and stocks were rising, the people buying stocks would be willing to pay more than they are now for the same return.
If the price was high, however the people were buying stocks, people would be reluctant to pay for the low price.
If they did, the price would fall.
It is this tendency towards higher prices that has been responsible for the financial crisis.
In the long run, investors should expect a good return, but they should be prepared to pay a very high price for it.
If someone sells a stock at $50 a share, and the stock goes up by 40 per cent in the next few years, the investor is likely to pay an enormous premium for that high return.
This is why it is always best to be cautious about buying a house.
The best way to achieve that is to get out early.
