Setting a goal and formulating a plan to achieve that goal is probably the best thing you can do before starting to invest. If you don’t have a goal to aim for how can you measure your success? The most successful people in property development formulate goals and strategies and it is this forward planning that ensures success.

How to become a property investor – Step four: Take Action
Doing all of the above will put you in a great position to begin investing and you will be far more confident when you do, however, you could read every book available on property investment but you will still know far less than someone who has invested themselves. This is because the practical experience of investing supersedes any other form of education. So educate yourself then consult those who have a proven track record in successful property investment.
