How do you decide on what strategy is right for you? Ultimately the goal is to retire early with solid income, $150k/year minimum. I have read a lot about cash flow positive investing which makes a lot of sense, makes it easy to increase total asset pool due to good cash flow. Over time this cash flow only gets better as rents increase and debt stays the same. However buying lower yielding properties that experience higher capital growth increases the asset pool through growth rather than acquisition... But the holding costs are higher limiting further purchases. We have a large amount of cash to start investing with so equity is less of a problem than cash flow. Does anyone out there actually split their portfolios into both of the above? Maybe having several high cash flow properties and a few more aimed a capital growth? Or maybe buying cash flow positive properties on city fringes on large blocks for future capital gain through sub division? Appreciate any advice on how you nailed down what your strategy will be.
