No need to reinvent the property investment wheel

Similarly, property investors do not have to reinvent the wheel or learn by trial-and-error. "Why reinvent the wheel?" asks Dr Koos du Toit, CEO of P3 Investment Group. "The property investment model already exists and has been fine-tuned down to the smallest detail by thousands of property investors who are part of a professional property investment organisation, where they can learn, not only from seasoned property professionals and experienced mentors, but also from each other. The beauty of a system which has been honed and tweaked through the experiences of so many diverse investors and over so many years, is that it can be duplicated and replicated anywhere at any time by anyone and it will produce the same results. Successful franchise operations, among which McDonald’s reigns supreme, offer ample proof that following a tried-and-tested system is the key to success."

But here is the catch: if you want replicate the results achieved by a system, you have to follow the system to the letter. "Many property investors learn how the system works, but then fail to follow the system step-by-step. They may omit certain steps or add their own steps and processes to the system," comments Dr du Toit. "Just like a recipe, a system will only produce a certain result if you follow the system to the letter. If you do not follow the system, or if you create your own version of the system, and you do not get the results you expected, you cannot say that it is the system that does not work, as so many DIY property investors who made glaring mistakes do!"

The reality is that buy-to-let property investment system has been honed to an art and a science through experience and expertise. As a result, it can be duplicated and replicated almost anywhere - in different areas, in different countries, with different value properties, even in different market sectors such as residential, retail, industrial and office. But the single common key to success is to find a proven system and to implement this system step-by-step and to the letter.

"Joining a professional property investment organisation is one way of ensuring that you select and stick to a proven system and that you have at your disposal all the information, tools and resources to implement the system correctly. Not only do you immediately benefit from the years of experience and hands-on expertise of the network, you also become part of a community of professional property investors who are continuously learning from each other and fine-tuning the system together as the market and the times change to ensure everyone has access to the latest, cutting-edge system that is quite literally infallible… if you implement it to the letter," concludes Dr du Toit.
