Big Sister's Property Buying and Investing Tips

Hi, my name is Jude Little, also known as ‘Big Sister Jude’.

I am a comic artist and a property investor. I bought my first property at 26 and ended up owning four properties in Australia and the UK by 30.

I created this blog to help millions of people, like my little brother and little sister, who want to climb the property ladder, but lack the knowledge and confidence on how to get there.

Becoming a property investor is not as hard as what people believe. Trust me.

Working the system

You don’t need to have a degree to become a property investor. I don’t have one but I still managed to succeed. What you do need is to create a ‘system’.

This is the system I used to buy four properties in a short number of years:

  1. Save money for your first deposit.
  2. Buying a run-down property in a poorer town undergoing gentrification.
  3. Renovate the property and increase the rent.
  4. When the property increases in value, release equity and use this money as a deposit to buy your next investment property.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 again and again until you build a solid property portfolio.

People often assume that you need to have cash in the bank, or a high salary, to invest in property. This is not always true.

Working regular 9 to 5 jobs, my husband and I only ever handed over cash for our first deposit. When each of our properties increased in value, we released equity to make the next purchase.

You can easily achieve the same results by following my tips – all of which are based on my own personal experiences.

The best property investors are the ones who continuously educate themselves. This blog shares easy-to-understand, jargon-free, practical advice to help build your knowledge and get you climbing the property ladder sooner.
