How age and stage of life can impact your property plan and selection (Ep. 13)

The type of property that suits your current needs, will not necessarily meet your long-term needs.

Beware of middle-aged children, pregnant women and dads at an auction or during property negotiation! They have a time deadline and the purchase price is less important.

In episode 13, the Property Planner, Buyer and Professor dissect “How age and stage of life can impact your property plan and selection”

Listen to David Johnston, Cate Bakos and Peter Koulizos as they take you through the critical considerations and how they change throughout your life’s journey.
