Client Background: John and Jane are a young couple in their early 30s. They are on a family income of $150k approx.
Where they were: John and Jane already owned a home and were looking to start their investment property portfolio. They had received feedback from colleagues and friends who said they should consider buying brand new house and land packages. However, they wanted to ensure they build the right team around them, to guide them towards achieving their long-term goals.
What was important to them: Investing in property was a way for John to reduce his work hours so he can spend more time doing things he loves with his family & friends. His aim is to gain enough passive income from property that he will be able to retire earlier.
