    Did see the answer to "what is your favourite seminar/event?"

    I was a wee bit surprised.

    Cheers,

    Default 40% to buy in next 6 months

    Hi

    Interested to note that 40% answered yes to "Do you think you will purchase an(other) investment property between now and June 2009?"

    With interest rates potentially dropping faster and lower than expected would be interesting to see if this number would increase?

    I was surprised that only 3.3% of people had more than 15 properties.

    Thats not a lot for 20+ years investing,....I would've thought this number would've been higher.

    Nope. In surveys done 5-7 years ago 90 to 91% of investors had only one or two properties.

    Only 5% of investors had 5 properties or more.

    Default Why such a small number?

    Hi

    Why is there such a small number of investors with less than 5 properties?

    Assuming they did their homework and made the step to invest in their first investment property why wouldnt the go again? Especially with the well documenting gains people have made over the longer term.

    62.2% have 5 or less rental properties. I suppose it's goes back to looking at the quality not quantity and maybe less properties has a lot to do with this statistic....over half have between 30 - 70% equity in their property portfolio - so these people could possibly have more property if they wanted to - unless they hit debt servicing issues.

    Good to see this healthy share of equity amongst the investors - riding out the recession etc.

    Cheers,

    Question Why not continue to grow your portfolio?

    Hi

    I am still puzzled why the majority of property investors do not continue to invest in property. Especially when the majority of us are investing in property to retire wealthy / stress free retirement (see survey). As you can argue that less than 5 properties is not going to be enough to support this type of lifestyle in the future?

    Therefore, for the majority its not due to a lack equity.

    Therefore, for the majority its not due to the wider economy.

    Maybe Donna is right it is caused by a lack of cashflow or maybe its a mental barrier about the $ debt the majority of investors can handle?

    I'm aiming for at least 30+ properties under my belt before I turn 45 (so that's another 19 in the next 7 years).
    Maybe a bit too ambitous, but hey you won't make it happen by just dreaming about it and sitting on your arse!
