“From Burnout to Cashflow Boom”
Special Article by Helen Tarrant ‘Australia’s Queen of Cashflow’
Would you love to get a consistent passive income each month, to make life a whole lot easier?
One of the best ways to do this is invest in real estate -however you need to do it the right way.
What I’ve found works best for creating healthy passive cashflow is commercial property.
So, now I’ll share my story with you, to give you an idea of what it took for me to start investing in commercial property.
Because I want to teach you to create a passive income for yourself and your loved ones through investment in commercial property.
My Life Before Commercial Property
Before I even started investing in real estate, I was running two successful businesses in the Salon industry.
They were doing well, but the problem was the business started consuming me. I was working around 12 hours a day, every day of the week.
I was drained of all my life force – going through life like ‘night of the living dead’.
After realising I needed a better way to earn an income for myself and my family, I started investing in residential property.
But there was a problem. The income I generated didn’t seem worth the time and energy.
At the end of every financial year, I’d mostly be level, or even a little under, despite the work and money I put into it.
You see, what typically happens when you invest in residential property is that you just sit there waiting for capital gains.
This can take a long time in between ‘booms’ and there’s no guarantee the property will even go up in value at the end.
After realising this, I decided to find a different strategy.
This is when I decided to go with commercial property to give me a healthier cash flow return.
How Did Commercial Property Change My Life?
In 2012, I bought my first commercial property in North Sydney, a small premises leased to a busy Japanese café.
My husband and I bought it for $360,000, and today it’s worth twice that much.
After covering all our expenses, we generate around $25,000+ of passive income every year from that property.
After realising what kind of income, I could generate, I became addicted to commercial property.
Using the extra cashflow and equity I was generating, I ‘rinsed and repeated’ big time.
So, now today we own 15 commercial properties, which give us well over $6,000 of net passive income a week.
You see, I realised what ‘positive cash flow’ really means.
It’s not a couple hundred dollars per month that you earn after paying your expenses. That’s not going to change your life.
It’s an amount of money that will let you live the life you want – without needing to do anything.
By this, I mean being able to pay for your children’s education, vacations, loans, and other expenses, without worrying about running out of money.
This is exactly what commercial property has done for me, and what it could possibly do for you too, when you do it the right way.
So, here are some of the reasons for switching to commercial property:
- High yields – With commercial properties, you can expect up to 5-10% net yields, far higher than residential.
- Less Expenses– Since the tenants pay for maintenance, utilities, and other expenses, you get to keep more money in your pocket.
- Set and Forget – Commercial properties typically have long leases of up to 3 years plus.
These are only some of the main reasons why I decided to add commercial properties to my portfolio and why you may consider it too.
