Three tips for your first investment

3 hot tips first-time investors can't afford to ignore:


1. Do your homework. As lucrative as landlording can be, it can devastate and consume if you sink funds in the wrong property.


2. Choose a prime location. Location to schools, tourist attractions, restaurants, shopping, and green spaces should be thought through. Enlist an agent's help to identify hot areas and neighborhoods.


3. Know the law.
