Two things have changed since then: More pros admit the alpha game is over, and perhaps more important for you, investing has never been better for those willing to stop playing.

Winning at investing made simple

investing When you start out in the world of real estate investment you will likely start with a relatively small pot and look forward to the future when you can make life changing money. In the early days, when the investment figures available to you are relatively small, you may end up taking more chances than you would normally if larger figures were at stake. However, whether you are investing a relatively small amount of money or looking at a multi-million pound deal in years to come, property investment is all about the figures and you must not get spooked by the numbers. Like any investment, you need to look at the pros and cons, the risks and the potential rewards, and look at the percentage returns.
