because we take the time to understand your situation. Rarely does a client of ours have to change their life-styles radically. The key to building a portfolio is to have your assets and your liabilities working for you, your cash flow harnessed, and selecting good properties in good locations that will get good rent.
Now that is a GREAT result!
People often ask when is the best time to buy property.
Some people believe they should wait in an attempt to try and time the market for the next down-turn. Some people wait for a crash and some wait for the market to show signs of rapid growth and then opt in.
The truth is that most people buy in a bull market where there is safety in numbers and everyone is talking property.
The truth is that the best time to buy property is when you have a deposit.
The simple analogy is that if inflation grows at a rate of 3% per annum, and property is going up at a rate of 8% per annum, then our real rate of return is actually 5%. Because no matter where we park our money, it must grow; or we will go backwards; eaten away by inflation.
Don’t fall into the trap of looking at your money in the bank and thinking it has kept its value; just because the bank balance hasn’t dropped. The truth is that inflation is eating it away in the background.
This is why property is such a good investment, particularly when we know that property and shares perform about the same over a 10-15 year investment. It is usually accepted that it is a much easier journey with property than shares.
I have owned more than 46 properties in my lifetime, and today I have a substantial portfolio allowing me to live on a rental income in my retirement.
At Solid Investment Property, we can assist you to take the confusion out of building a property portfolio. We like to start with the household budget, then assess your current assets and liabilities to truly understand your current financial situation. For more information, contact us or register for our next Property Investment Seminar.
Lynne purchased her first home over 28 years ago. Over time this has grown into an extensive portfolio of both residential and commercial investments.
Today Lynne runs a successful Property Mentoring business where she offers seminars throughout the year and invites you to join her Mentor Program.
“There are a lot of people out there that think about their future and want to invest but they’re afraid to do it. It’s the unknown its a lot of money, it’s a big step. After kids came along that changed everything for me, I started thinking about my future, how to secure my future and I started investing with Solid three years ago.
I’ve always been self-employed so banks really didn’t want to talk to me and it was an extremely intimidating process to go through that. Then I found Lynne. I went to one of her seminars and it just clicked, she had experience dealing with people who were self-employed, so she made it happen for me.
I feel so much more secure and so much happier that I have taken that step. Take the next step for yourself, for your family, for your future with Solid.”

As a member of the Mentor Program since 2012 if there is one thing that you should do for yourself before taking the plunge into property investing is to attend one of Lynne’s seminars to understand her approach and formula on property investment and get to know her.
Lynne’s attention to detail is what I really like, being able to answer questions in a way that is easy to understand.
The Mentor Program provides me with ongoing advice on property portfolio development which goes beyond just buying a property, as well as up-to-date information on the property market in general.
After my yearly review with Lynne last week my property portfolio is tracking really well and I know that I couldn’t have chosen a better person than Lynne and the Solid Group team to do business with.

During this year we have bought two investment properties through Solid and we have been absolutely ecstatic about it
From the get go I felt that I was in safe hands with Lynne and her team, I recommend everyone to contact Solid and get that same piece of mind that I have.
I bought a property through Lynne... It just went so smoothly. Lynne held my hand all the way through it. I'm so happy with the apartment, it rented so quickly and now it's bringing a lovely income. Thanks Lynne!
Lynne lives her life with care, intelligence and passion and she brings that to understanding who you are, where you want to be and giving you the guidance to get there. Your success is her success.
Lynne and her team really down to earth, professional, know what they’re talking about and very much having their clients interest right up front and very much at heart. The budgeting process that Lynne has taught us has really made a difference to our personal finances. We've got more money now, without making more money, and finding the right property for us was the focus for Lynne.
Lynne has a passion to see people realise their dreams as far as property ownership, But not to their demise… In fact they’re [solid] are very comfortable telling you here’s what you need to have, have a solid plan… It’s the confidence, the caring about your dream and your vision for property ownership
It was very easy for us to go with the process right through to the successful settlement of our first property. We’ve had 2 and now 3 investment properties...We love her team and thoroughly recommend her and her team to anyone.
Solid has been very reliable, very trustworthy and if we were in the market for a third property we would certainly go with them.
