The Property Professor’s Golden nugget: risk and return are closely matched. You can mitigate the risk by doing your research and using a trusted team, but in the end, there is a risk involved.
The Property Buyer’s Golden nugget: be cognisant of your partner’s risk aversion or risk appetite. Accept that if your partner is more risk averse, it can be a really well-balanced equation. If you’re in a yin and yang situation, be grateful that you’ve got someone to hold you accountable.
