The market waits for no one. It will go up or down with or without you as an investor.
An experienced independent advisor will ensure you won’t buy the wrong asset, wait too long or pay too much.
Whilst it may seem like you’re paying more upfront, having professional advice in the early stages, will ensure that you come out financially on top in the long run.
Remember, the price is what you pay but the value is what you get.
Property is a forgiving asset and you can mitigate the perceived risk largely by ensuring you buy the right property and take a long-term view.
