Tips on Navigating Property Investing During Divorce

Let’s talk about the D word. Divorce that is.

We live in an age where divorce rates are high. Judging by the recent statistics, divorce rates stand at 2.2 divorces per 1,000 Australian residents which means that potentially, each of us either know someone who has had a divorce or are divorced ourselves.

This is the part where I raise my hand high.
Having been through a divorce myself, I speak from experience when I say that it Is an emotionally and financially challenging time for anyone.

Amidst all the turmoil, divorce can serve as an opportunity to regain control of your future and explore new avenues for growth. In particular, property investing can be a powerful tool, offering financial independence and a pathway to building wealth.

So, let’s explore how you can harness this potential for property investing.

Build a Support Network:
Going through a divorce can be emotionally draining and one of the most important things I’ve learnt is that having a supportive group of friends, family, or reaching out to support groups can provide you with a safe space to express your feelings. It can also help you to gain perspective, and receive encouragement during this challenging time. We all need someone to lean on from time to time. Find your tribe!

Seek Professional Guidance:
The property investing world can be complex, especially for those new to the real estate market. Engaging the expertise of a professional can provide you with invaluable insights into making an informed investment decision. I learnt the hard way and after so many years of being a Property Investment Strategist, I can proudly say that I now have the education and experience to help identify properties with strong growth potential, to evaluate financing options, and to help you develop a well-rounded investment strategy tailored to your individual needs.

Reevaluate Your Finances:
One of the first steps to consider during divorce is to take stock of your financial situation. This includes assessing existing assets, debts, and potential child support payments. Gain a clear understanding of your financial position. Determine the feasibility of investing in property and set realistic goals for your investment journey.

‘Fear is the Mind-Killer…’

If you haven’t read this quote before, it’s well worth the read. The one emotion that holds many of us back, is fear and it’s only natural to feel this way. You’re going through a major life change and at some point, you will have to take a stand. Face your fear head on, realise your worth and potential and fight back!

Mostly, the process is and can be exhausting. But with proper preparation, awareness, and a supportive network, you can navigate the process with confidence. Make sure you take time first to have a breather, exercise some self-love and when you’re ready, come and see me.
