Ready to invest but don’t know how to take the crucial first step? 🫣🫣🫣

The headlines are calling this a buyer’s market. Funny that. It’s not as if things have become easy-breezy for first-time investors! The usual newbie trepidation that has to do with questions of how to buy, where to buy and what to buy is still there. And getting the answers right can be intimidating, especially when it feels like you have a lot to lose.

Join us at this webinar if you care to calm those nerves enough to focus on your investment goals and take action. Both Amanda Watt and Debbie Roberts are seasoned investors who know firsthand how important it is to get your first property purchase just right. From them, you will learn how to give yourself the best start to your property investing journey!
