i am a new investor and have been seeking advice off you guys who are more experienced, especially with regards to reading some books to get some good foundations. See 'most people... Who should you listen to' thread. Some really helpful suggestions, which I am hooking into now, Ej89 suggested we get a thread discussing the different strategies that people use and why they use them and significant details. Ej said: Many investors who have done well have implemented a mix of things but from a successful investor point of view, it would be nice to see what you guys have learnt and have adopted to be the best strategy. I see testimonials of strategies people use but I think more details on how to do that and results to expect doing that would be great.. E.g Yardney only buys 10km within cbd because he thinks thats safest. Birch buys with yield of 6-7% Rixter buys townhouses/villas with history of 8% growth. Question is how, where and when though? And what are the different strategies out there? I think seeing the different strategies will help newer people..issue lately has been every strategy under the sun has worked in Sydney in the last 3 yrs so it confuses people.' Really good to get ideas from those experienced.
