Your Property Workout Plan (With Free PDF Download)

Melisa @GoodPlaceHQ

In one of our previous guides, we have talked about how to come up with a sensible “property buying plan” based on your own financial standing as well as your own personal criteria (time frame, risk tolerance, end game, etc). This is the “homework” that (IMHO) you should do if you’re buying a property, and with it you will be able to make your decisions in a structured, clear-headed manner. If you have missed the guide, go here (comes up in a new window).

Once you have got your buying criteria all firmed up, it’s time to get out there and start looking at properties. This is also a good time to get an agent (either through searches at property classifieds sites like iProperty and Property Guru or through referrals from your friends and family, or me). When you do that, learn how to engage agents properly and importantly, don’t low-ball them. πŸ˜‰

The research phase (i.e. identifying and shortlisting choices) can be rather daunting even to the savviest property investor; indeed many home buyers become overwhelmed and then succumb to letting their emotions dictate their choices. Avoid making this mistake by using this nicely structured Research Sheet which you can download below –

As you will notice, this Research Sheet is actually a chapter off my forthcoming book (tentatively titled The GoodPlace Guide To Good Properties unless I can think of something less cheesy later). The recommended retail price will probably be in the region of RM30-40 (we’ve not quite decided yet), but you can download this chapter for free today. I’ll be giving out even more chapters later just for the heck of it… darn, it feels pretty good to give out free stuff.
