Lloyd has a diverse range of investment strategies and places importance on achieving equity gains to maintain a cash flow positive portfolio, quintessential to portfolio growth. His strategies allow him to "manufacture" equity without having to wait for the market to rise.
Lloyd’s property investment motto is "You make your money when you buy, not when you sell!”. He has helped numerous clients make a large amount of equity in a short period of time through creating instant equity.
He uses a range of strategies targeted to specific situations, including:
Due to his wide range of contacts in the real estate industry, Lloyd gets access to properties before they are listed for sale, as well as "off market" properties which don't go to the open market at all.
Working as a buyers' agent and property developer, Lloyd loves to help other people replicate his success.
“Property became my passion when I realised that it can be a vehicle to financial independence,” he says.
“Achieving equity gains while maintaining cash flow is essential to portfolio growth and ultimate financial independence".
Having a teaching background, Lloyd's educational skills and excellent communication techniques prove invaluable to clients. He has worked in a number of areas of education across Sydney and now uses his experience to educate people about property and how it can set them on the path to financial freedom.
